Weekly Winners (Apr. 11 – 17)

April 18th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

My apologies to all the Weekly Winners people last week that I failed to come visit. It was a busy weekend, followed by a super busy week. I don’t think I’ve come off the adrenaline rush of the last three months of tax season. It’s all over, though, and time to move forward! First, though, a review of the last week! (The first three photos are actually from Apr. 10th, when I was out of town and couldn’t include it in last week’s post. So a little cheating going on there.)

For more weekly winners, please go visit Lotus and share some love with all of the participants!

Tickle the keys

My husband at work. I can't help it but be mushy... but I love that I caught his wedding ring in this photo. Makes me smile.

Good bye tax season

Tax season draws to an end. Crossing that day out on the calendar, was a lot like shifting gears in your vehicle. My days and pace change dramatically now.

Fried pickles & beer

Fried pickles and an icey Coors Light to celebrate the end of a good season.

Lake Belton

Drove over Lake Belton one afternoon. The sail boat made for such a peaceful image.

I'm doing a weekly "self portrait" project. I liked how this one turned out for this week.

    Seemed to be a nice week ! I had to laugh about what you wrote about the wedding ring ! After 32 years of marriage, Mr. G. had taken it off or rather the doctors had to cut it off for a light surgery, and he never could put it back because his fingers “put on weight” lol ! but even without ring we just celebrated our 40th anniversary.

      LOL! Awww! Happy Anniversary!! 40 years and we’re barreling our way towards our 4th. Love it. Makes me smile! But what a great story on the ring. LOL! Just goes to show… its not the ring that makes the marriage!

    Nice pics. Taxes… ugh. I haven’t done mine yet. I have no motivation. I’m a stay-at-home-mom with no income. Nothing they can do to me. ;)

      HAHA! There you go then!! My refund was spent before it arrived. Sad!

    Oh, God! Now I crave fried pickles!

      hehehe — there are worse things to crave. ;)

    As the wife of a CPA, tax day is typically a major holiday in our family (this year my husband isn’t in public acct, so it was less stressful) – so needless to say, your Tax Day shot really resonates with me!!

      haha! I used to call myself a tax season orphan back in the day. Shoulda known I’d be part of the family business as an adult!

    you should sell that tax day photo — totally looks commercial. same with hearts in clover.

      Wow, thanks SO MUCH. What a huge compliment. Thank you.

    Um, fried pickles? Where the heck do I get some of those?!?! Seriously, my mouth is watering!

    • April 20th, 2010 at 04:04 | #14

      haha! I got those at Texas Roadhouse, but I know various places will have them. I was only just introduced to them about two years ago. OMG HEAVEN! SO YUM!!!!

    Love the car mirror shot. Also love fried pickles. Yum!
