Happy Pink St. Nicholas Saturday!!!


Thanks Bridget!   I don't know how deserving I am, but I'll take what I can get!   Bridget's My Silly Blog IS really cool.  I don't know how she comes up with'em....

I get to pass the award on to 10 more deserving bloggers.   I will choose the first 10 Pink Saturday Visitors  who participate in Beverly's Pink Saturday Fun!   If you want to join in,  then please visit Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound.  She has the list of over 100 participants.  

If you take the Butterfly Award please be advised that you need to follow the rules.

  • Put the logo on your blog.
  • Add a link to the person who awarded you.
  • Nominate 10 other blogs.
  • Add links to those blogs on yours.
  • Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.
Since I am leaving this award for my first 10 visitor/commenters I will have to return later in the day to add the links to follow up on my award.   I think that this will be fun.  It will be interesting to see who makes the first 10 comments.   Everybody always comes up with such wonderful ideas.   

Today is St. Nicholas Day!   We used to find a piece or two of candy in our boots in the cloak room at our parochial grade school St. Bernard's.   St. Nicholas would visit our classroom and pass out a switch stick to our Sister so she could use it on all the naughty boys & girls.
Of course, that was never me!!!!!   

Unfortunately,  the only Christmas decorating I have accomplished is my blog.   (We do have our priorities, right girls?)   However, my Dad is finished with his Christmas shopping.  He ran me ragged again yesterday,   but it included lunch at TGIF's,  so I guess it was worth it.   We each have their frequent lunch punch cards and they are almost full.  Just two more weeks and we receive a free lunch!   Woo Hoo!

Think of me as you leisurely read each others blogs today as I will be setting up my Christmas Tree and hopefully  putting out my decorations.  I will hopefully stop by for a visit to your blog later tonight.  

Hope you Have A Happy Pink Saturday!

Robyn

Hi Robyn, thank you for visiting my blog on my very first Pink Saturday. My pink tree is in my bedroom, as my husband thinks it is too far out there. So, we'll be putting up a green tree in the living room. Your blog looks amazing! Kathleen
