The second set was from Alisa. She sent her tags (you can find a sneak peek here) in this book/box along with some candy. How apropos!
Thank you, ladies!

The next set of tags I opened were from Cheryl. Her sneak peek can be found here. She included a hand-made card. I wish that I was talented enough to do stuff like that.
The final set of tags was from Michelle. A sneak peek of her tags can be found here. Thank you, so much, ladies - they are all awesome.

Now, I'm no artist, but this sounded like it was too cool to pass up, so I paid my $25 to participate, and am now patiently waiting for my sketchbook to arrive in the mail. I can't wait to get started!

I finally finished reading this book today. Boy, was it torture! I started it back in May, when I was at home with my ankle injury, and I just couldn't get into it. The heroine had other people's best interest at heart, but she acted like a spoiled little rich girl. She would do what she wanted, against the advice of those she cared about. And the supporting villain didn't have a backbone. It made him a little endearing, but a lot annoying. I'm just glad the book didn't get the best of me!

As usual, I enjoyed the parade of athletes, and wanted to cry while the torch was being run around the auditorium. Joe Flacco was there and walked by the band. He was close enough to touch! Unfortunately, I was star-struck and he walked away unscathed.
When I got home, I found out that Marian's tags for the "Around the World in 20 Tags" Swap had arrived. For a sneak peek, click here. They're adorable. Marian also sent a gift.
It'a a book that she was a Project Designer for.
Thank you, Marian!

It was a little different from the Regency romances that I've enjoyed in the past - it didn't have much to do with the titled and the London Season. I also got really sick of the heroine. I hope it's not the genre of book that I'm getting tired of - I have another one that I bought at the same time that I still need to read.
I also got a good start on my pillow for the Project Pillow Swap.
I initially thought to do a curvy line of petals, but now I think I'll do a few flowers. Most of the parts are cut out, I just need to finish cutting out parts for the flowers, then assemble.

I haven't been to an air show in a long time, and since we were in town anyway... It started out with a jump from an airplane with an American flag while the Star Spangled Banner was being sung.
The Navy Leapfrogs and the 101st Airborne had jumpers not too long after that.
There were aerial acrobatics performed by several different pilots in bi-planes, German planes, and a Russian Yak, fly-bys by four Raptors and a Globemaster on Saturday, and three C-130's on Sunday. An FA-18 Hornet (which is the same airframe that the Blue Angels fly) did a demonstration which included breaking the sound barrier. The Geico Sky Typers had a demonstration as well, showing how those planes would be used in combat. At Sunday's show, they actually did some sky typing.
The show ended each day with the Thunderbirds.
Of course, Tom had some criticisms, but I enjoyed myself - where else can you lay on the beach and see that kind of entertainment?

But my favorites were playing "Thriller," and implied that the fans keep coming back from the dead!
One of the Roosts even had a dance routine to the song - and they were quite good. We also had Sandra Unitas, Johnny Unitas' wife, and a former punter from the Baltimore Colts.
A couple of our band members were even in the parade, and the pep band hooped and hollered for them. It was a good time.

She also sent a sweet little hostess gift.
Which opened up to reveal this wonderful smelling candle!
Thank you, Natalea!
