Tickled Pink No. 54

Happy 4th of July!
(a little early)
504 Main
I am Tickled Pink to celebrate the U.S.A.!
I know I have said I do not like holidays...but this one is an exception.
July 4th has always been a favorite!
How are you celebrating?
Here is the link to the banner
We are off to the annual chili cook off at Rook No. 17's place for the 4th.
Anyone have a good chili recipe?
(You know what I am I can win with...I am not competitive at all!)
I am NOT Tickled Pink about Cars 2...anyone see it?
I am interested in hearing what other thought?
For me - too James Bond-ish.
Too much blowing things up.
Too much stupid bathroom humor.
Too much Mater.
I was expecting more...
For the record I LOVE (the original) Cars!
I know I am not the only busy lady or man out there..
I know I have been awful at returning emails and comments.
I am working on it, but when the choice is go to the park with the kids
or return emails, right now the park has to win...they grow too quickly. THANK YOU all for coming by! I appreciate it!

I LOVE the ease of sharing links on Facebook, so this is how I will make my way through Tickled Pink links. I will now get more active with that!

    Holly, thank you for hostessing... have a great 4th of July!

  12. Hi! Holly~

    I linked up my bench transformation. Linky went crazy and put up a picture of one of the buttons on my blog instead of my bench. Couldn't figure out how to change that. Oh! Well.

    Have a happy 4th of July.


  13. I haven't seen Cars 2 yet, but I just love the original version.

    I don't blame you for putting family first. It's the wise choice.

  14. HI Holly-

    I am glad to hear there are other blogger's who put life first blog second. I love to interact with all my readers and other blogger's, but there is not enough time in the day to do it all. I try to stick with a schedule and that helps me most of the time, but life happens at any given time and you have to stop and get to it to enjoy. I am trying to get caught up with returning comments myself. I hope you are enjoying your summer so far and spending quality time with your kids.
    My best- Diane


Thanks for stopping by and joining the conversation! I sure hope you come back for more!
