Yesterdays Fall Festival was Great!

Yesterday was the Fall Festival in Megan's neighborhood. I set up my jewelry table and sold about $127.00 worth of jewelry. I was pretty happy with that! There were about 600 people there but there were alot of things for kids to do so the parents were really busy with the kids. I gave alot of cards out and people said they will go to my etsy site and buy some jewelry there. Alot of them didn't bring their wallets either because they didn't know there would be vendors selling things. There were only 11 vendors, but I think I did the best. One poor vendor was selling pumpkin rolls and muffins and she hadn't sold anything by 3:00 when I bought one from her! The event started at 1:00 and was going to 5:00. She only sold 3 total at the end of the day. The girl scouts did really well too with their bake sale. While we were sitting there (John and I) Sir Purr the mascot for the Carolina Panthers football team came and asked if he could sit by John! So here is a picture of the two fo them!





This is what my table looked like when we started at 1:00.

After the Festival we drove Ken, our son-in-law back to their house and ordered pizza. When Megan came home the guys went and picked it up. What a great way to end a really nice day! The weather this weekend has been absolutely gorgeous! Who would know Christmas is next month with the temps at 79 degrees right now and the sun blazing away!! Gotta love North Carolina weather!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
