Fun For Friday - Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles.

First and foremost.  Thank you to everyone who took the time to send me a comment or email regarding my quilt at the AQS show.  I told my husband that in many ways they are more meaningful and valuable to me than the ribbon or the prize.

So, why this new feature you ask?

I put a very high value on fun.  I try to inject fun into my life and those around me.  I believe having fun is a state of mind and I want to inspire fun to others (wow, that was almost a mission statement on fun, weird.)

Here is what was recently fun for me:

Drinking  bubbly.  I couldn't wait for RV to get home, so I started and he joined me, wee.

Playing with my new light up bubble gun.  I got this in Disney World and it's so fun!!

Here I'm trying to show you how they look in the dark - the bubble sort of light up!

Don't have a bubble gun?  These work just fine!

The only NOT fun thing.   Poor coco has a belly ache and I'm hoping she'll be back to her old self soon!

I bought these salt & Pepper shakers in WDW.   They look almost toile' to me.  Pretty elegant for mouse merchandise.

Eating our family's favorite WDW treat.

When was the last time you picked up bubble gum?  It's still fun! 

Tomorrow I'm leaving at 0-dark hundred to go to the show in Lancaster.  It's always fun to pack some treats for my car mates.  You are never too old for treat bags with your name on them.

In closing, I'd just like to say that I know life is not all fun.  I too have my own challenges, disappointments and worries, trust me, I do.

Having said that, I hope you find some fun near you!

To quote Dr. Seuss: "These things are fun and fun is good!" I must needs get a bubble gun - awesome! And any day with bubbly is a good day in my book. Hope your weekend is maahhvelous!

And what's not to love about bubbles and goodies in a bag with your name on it? Lol love the comment about antique little girls, I'll put myself down as retro.

I really enjoyed your post on "FUN"!!! One can do so much to inject a bit of fun into your life and those around you. Things can be way to serious. Having fun, like smiling and being happy is a conscious decision!! You can choose to do it - and it really makes you happier - or not. Way to go Barb!!! I like your style!

Ohmygosh -- what a FUN post -- thanks for all the cheer! I can't think of anything much more fun than drinking bubbly while blowing bubbles -- I'll bet you two were quite the sight -- Too Cute! And those S&P shakers -- now I want some too. Especially when you add that rice krispy treat -- how awesome!!!

Kim said...

OH GOOD, I was afraid you were not going to get to see your award winning quilt live and in person and have YOUR picture taken while it hangs in public! I look forward to seeing that picture!
Stop by and see my friend Debby Brown in the Handiquilter booth and tell her I say HI :0)....she's a really good friend.

bubbles with the bubbly......
too fun and good for you for embracing the good times.

Happy Sewing and safe trip to Lancaster.

What a fun post, thank you. I sometimes think we forget about the fun side of life as we get older.

Have fun at the show too.
