FUN FILLED FRIDAY!!! Party Edition

ImageChef Sketchpad - ImageChef.com
Happy Friday Friends!  This week is the Party Edition of Fun Filled Friday!!!

This week we are partying like rock stars at the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 sponsored by http://www.5minutesformom.com/!!  Make sure you stop by and add your blog to the list so that you can get lots of partygoers to visit you.  This is sure to be a fun filled week of blogginess.

This Weeks Recap
This was the very first week of Mary's Country Life and I think I will call it a success.  The blog had over 150 views in the first week!  A big thanks goes out to each and every one of you who stopped by to give me some words of encouragement and read my crazy musings into this country life.

This week we made some fantastic food including:
Yummy Yummy Sticky Buns for breakfast on Easter Sunday, Sizzlin Salsa sure to please those spicy taste buds and Easy Fiesta Potatoes, the perfect quick and easy side dish to go with any meal.

I spent some time talking about my first ever herb garden, and wrote a very silly letter to my poor neglected kitchen.  This week was all about getting to know the blog and figuring out how things work.  I am super excited to see what the weekend holds and how next week's blogging will go.  It is sure to be full of fun, especially with the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 going on!

My Fun Filled Friday
This evening my parents came out and we had a nice little bonfire here on my property. 

My dad tending the fire.

We had a lot of fun sitting around talking and playing with the silly cats.  My cats do the funniest things sometimes, like walking down the runway for a big cat fashion show.

The cats sure are silly, but I love them to pieces! 

This weekend my husband is coming home from another long week on the road (did I mention he is a trucker?), and we are going to the swap meet here in my town.  The swap meet is a HUGE flea market and is held in the fairgrounds each spring and fall.  I plan on buying some hens that lay eggs, I had a chicken when I was a little girl and I loved it.  If anyone has any good chicken raising tips please do let me know. 

That is all there is to report on this Fun Filled Friday!  Please enjoy your weekend and dont forget to laugh and have fun!  Laughter really does make the world a better place.

Visiting through the UPB. I enjoyed reading your blog and I think you'll be glad you are embracing the country life. I don't grow herbs but we do have hens and we get a kick out of them scratching around our yard. Before too long, they will come running to see what goodies you have for them.

Of course, if you let them loose, fence in your gardens!
