Welcome 2013!

It is Monday morning, January 7th.  I know that we are already one week into 2013, but for me it feels like today is the first day of the year.  Why, you may ask?

The kids went back to school today. With that depressing event (oh, you should have heard them last night and this morning moaning about going back!) I feel like I can get my act together and start my own goals for 2013.


First off, you may be wondering where I have been.  The last time you heard from me I was off to explore the new “Hobby Lobby”.  No, I have not only just now returned from my expedition.  ALthough for me, it does not feel all that long ago as it has been a whirlwind around here lately!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Hobby Lobby and found many treasures on my first, second and ahem, my third trip there.  My first trip was 2 hours long and I still did not make it to the holiday section.  Baby Girl was so excited to go with me and we explored the store’s huge holiday section together.

My girlfriends and I had another very successful Holiday Boutique at the beginning of December.  I was working like crazy making items to be sold, decorating our house for Christmas, hosting a Breakfast Dinner party, preparing for our Annual Christmas Party for 130 people, creating baskets for clients, shopping for gifts, volunteering, painting…Oh yes, and all of that on top of being sick.  For 4 weeks!!!  You get the idea.  Although I love my Blog and sharing with you, my reader (are any of you left?) my love of decorating and parties, my family was questioning my sanity already without adding the pressure of blogging.

So, enough excuses aside, here are some pics of what I have been up to these last many weeks~

One of my goals for 2013 is to continue to grow  my business and to write  for my Butterscotch Lady blog more regularly.  Did you make any New Year’s Resolutions? I would love for you to leave a comment and let me know what they are.  We can help each other keep our resolutions!

Much love to all!

Until next time,

Butterscotch Lady


  1. Yay! Butterscotch Lady is back!! One resolution I have is to spend less time worrying about events/people/situations that are out of my control, and instead focus my energy on those dear, true friends who add beauty to my world and life! You are an amazing person and friend, Miss BL! ❤ Haven't been to Hobby Lobby yet and am dying to go! Maybe an excursion sometime soon? 🙂
