EAT-EAT-EAT for you don't get to for 2 days!!!!

Today was the annual Manager's wives luncheon at Trish's house!!!I always enjoy going to this, not only is the company Great, the conversation is always fun, and the food is always delicious!!!

The hostess of this fun event is the lady in the yellow jacket!!Her kitchen is so amazing and it is a very LARGE Kitchen!!!!
Sitting out back enjoying our lovely spring day and the View is pretty spectacular as well!!!
From there, I headed over to Mesa to Front Porch Tea Cafe for the Arizona Bloggers Tea and luncheon!!!
This is the Great group of ladies who attended!!!!A few more were expected but one had to leave town as her Mother passed away, ours thoughts and Prayers are with you Laura and Oliva's husband had a surprise trip planned for their Anniversary. We missed all the ones who for reason or another were not able to make it. We are already planning our next one!!!!We had so much fun introducing ourselves and telling a short story of how and why we started blogging, some of the stories brought tears to the eyes, other's were funny and some were hilarious!!!!We all left there knowing we share so many things in common and what we get from each other is far more then just a computer screen in front of us!!! We have developed a close friendship in some way, that has our hearts and lives all so connected together!!! Oh the Joy of friendship!!
My tomato flower filled with Chicken Salad, so good!!!
Sherry brought this delicious cake adorned with her very favorite thing, cherries!!!
We all brought a gift for the gift exchange, we decided from here on out, we will no longer be doing a gift exchange or bringing any sort of small gift for each other, we want to make it less stressful and more about the fun of each other.
Here is Sandy from 521 Lake street opening her gift, I love her smile!!!!
Gail from cupcakes and cute stuff got a darling hand made apron, she really liked that!!!
Marty from A stroll through life and Char from Some place in Thyme each showing their great gifts!!!
And from that luncheon, I hurried home to change and head over to our BIG Block party!!!!
More yummy food!!!!
One of our neighbors is in a band so he brought the rest of them out for our entertainment!!!
My cute hubby came straight from work!!!!Yes, he works on Saturdays!!!
Oh here comes the Birthday GIRL!!!!I rode home last night with my daughter around 9 p.m. leaving those girls to finish up the party and get a ride home on their own!!!!Just kidding!!! They got a ride back by the same guy who took us!!!
Collin is almost 2 and he was riding around on one of the bigger kids scooter!!!!Great job Collin!!!
He and Camdyn both loved listening to the band!!!
Camdyn liked this dog more!!!!
Mimi and her sweet pea!!!!
Corie visiting with one of my neighbors who happens to also be a dental hygienist!!!
What a fun day of Luncheons, Teas, and Parties!!!!
And so glad I ate so many great things, as I do not get any food for 2 days!!!!
OH don't ask!!!!

Oh Jamie Sweetie...
We did good. No we did GREAT! What a wonderful time we had today. I believe everyone so enjoyed themselves and the laughter, oh my we had such wonderful laughter. I think everyone sat by someone that they so enjoyed and nobody was left out of conversation. I am so thrilled that each of us were able to share a little something.

I can't wait to get together for lunch and little girl shopping once I get back from Maryland. I know Liz wants to also. It would be fun to make a day of it, and do something, go somewhere.

Let me guess you must be going to have one of those infamous colonoscopy tests ran this coming Monday(?) I am thrilled that you were able to eat, eat, eat.

Have a beautiful Sunday sweetie. Enjoy the sun. I am going to try and get out and enjoy some myself.

I will talk to you soon. I love ya girl. Thank you again for a beautiful afternoon of fun.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Hi sweet Jamie, boy did you ever have a fun filled day yesterday. Over the top enjoyment!!! Thankyou so much for everything, it was pure pleasure getting together once again with everyone. I look forward to repeating the experience, but I hope it won't be that long before we have the pleasure of each others company, Char

Oh my I think I need to go get something to eat after seeing all that yummy food! what a fun day. You have the life. You are truly one busy girl! So much fun. You always have some party to go to. I don't know how you do, but am sure glad you do. It is so fun to read your blog and see what your up to.I also really love to see what you, Corie or MIss C is wearing. You guys have such cute clothes and I love the style! As always beautiful. I also can't get over how nice it is to live on your street. What a special friendship you have with all of them. Thats how it should be. Looks like the girls party the other night was more than a good time. You girls are crazy. Cake falling, a fire, and birthday wishes. Wow that was some night. Now get some rest you might need a nap or two after that week of fun!

Oh I am so jealous to think that you all can get together. Some great looking gals and gifts.

Jamie - you lead one of the busiest lives I've seen - you do two or three major things a day - how do you do it? You must have lots and lots of energy.

And I know why you can't eat for two days - good luck.
