Le Vacation Is Over

Sooo....My sidebar is missing...Any thoughts?
Luckily, I am so tired from my trip that I am not even stressing about it. It may pop back up or I can contact my lovely designers, but no matter what- I'm hoping it's a quick fix.

Let's not dwell on that, and move on to how awesome I think you all are.
I LOVED all the Birthday comments, messages, emails, tweets, and blog dedications here and here. I definitely felt the love AND got to talk to my soldier. That means that this birthday was a complete success and you all had a huge part in that. I never cease to be amazed by all the kindness and love in blogland. Just amazing...

My trip was a success too. I'm sad that the storm got in the way of meeting up with some of my fave bloggers, but it was a ton'o fun other than that. I can't wait to tell you all about it and share the pictures!
Something along these lines:



Thinking back...I don't see how we squeezed it all in to six days!
No wonder I'm so tired.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I also want to remind you that today is the final day to sign up for the Christmas Swap! Then the real fun begins ;) We've worked it out so that we will get Secret Santa's too and I'm pretty stinkin' excited about that. I think the mystery is the best part....Oh the anticipation!

Gift Swap

Here is the breakdown once again:

#1 You link up and encourage others to sign up! The more the merrier.
#2 Secret Santa assignments will be made and the fun will begin.
#3 You begin stalking their blog brainstorming fun gifts for them.
#4 Shop for something in the $10-15 range that is a MEANINGFUL or fun gift.
(Think nail polish, cute notepads, fun jewelry, and/or make them something)
#5 Mail out the gift and impatiently await yours to arrive.
#6 Keep it all a secret until we reveal with the final link up in December.

Time Frame Breakdown:
~1st Friday in November~
11/02: Sign ups close, Secret Santa's will be given, and the fun will begin!
~1st Friday in December~
12/07: We will link up our gifts and reveal who sent what to whom!

Well? What you waiting for? Go sign up ;)

Just wanted to let you know that when you get to older posts, your sidebar reappears so it's not entirely gone. Not sure if that helps diagnose the issue but just wanted to pass that along! :)

I'm glad you had fun on your trip!
