Friday faux pas

To my 19 faithful followers, I apologize for not posting a Friday Food for the past two weeks.  Oh, another excuse?  Yes, that’s right.  Deal with it.

My youngest brother’s wedding was two Fridays ago and I traveled all the way across the country to attend it, so I thought I’d better use my time hanging out with my family instead of blogging.


All my siblings made the trip except for one of my sisters, who had a very good reason for not being there, but it sure wasn’t the same without her!



Then this past Friday, my computer decided to freak out on me and I spent every spare moment of the weekend trying to fix it.  When I realized that this problem was not going to be solved on my own, I resigned myself to the fact that I would have to call up customer service, sit on hold for 30 minutes or so while I waited to be connected to some nice young woman over in India and then have a nice little chat while I tried to understand what in the world she was saying.  After two hours on the phone into the wee hours of Monday morning , I hung up.  My computer was still NOT working, but I knew what I had to do.  Well, first what I had to do was go to bed.  But when I woke up, I started the painful process of backing up all my files and then restoring my computer back to the original factory settings.  It’s kind of like a Benjamin Button thing—my computer is 8 months old, but now it’s like it’s a brand new little baby again.  Annoying, but at least it works now.

Anyway, I have a bunch of Friday Food posts in the works for the next few weeks, so I promise that I won’t disappoint-- at least not for a while!

Missing a post over a wedding and computer glitches? How could you?
You look lovely in the pics and she is an ADORABLE Bride. Love the hair! Oh my goodness. Pictures like that make me want to grow my hair out. Then the next day I do my hair and think how much I love short hair. Then the cycle begins again. :)

Looking forward to Fridays food post.
