Celebrate the small things!



I love the chance to dress up in a long dress and sparkly shoes! So this week I am celebrating going to a ball tomorrow night! We go to this particular summer event every year with a group of friends and I am looking forward to it. To top it all off the sun has made a reappearance and is set to last for a week or so, will be hoping to fire up the BBQ with the family on Sunday.

I hope whatever you are doing you have a lovely weekend.

  3. A ball? That's awesome! I guess my wedding reception is the closest thing to a ball I've been too. By the time I go to a real one, I'll be one of those old guys that's blowing his nose or something during the random holiday building shots. :)

  5. Oh, I'm looking forward to hearing all about the festivities at the ball, Suzanne. I would love something like that as well. I love to dress up and listen to music, even though I'm not a dancer.

  7. How exciting! I can't remember the last time I got the chance to dress up. I think it was a cruise. I wish I had more places to go where I could get fancy :) Have a great weekend!

    1. There are too few places aren't there, Meredith? I went on a cruise and nobody really dressed up at all! Bit disappointing. Hope you find something fabulous to dress up for soon :)

  21. Sorry for my lateness in arriving. I do hope you had a ball at the Ball.

    Sunshine, a BBQ and something about tennis.

    Of course, I note another celebration. Your posting was dated the same day as my birthday. What a parade in my honour they had:)

    Be well, Suzanne.
