Share Your Cup Thursday #99

Hello and welcome to Share Your Cup (SYC for short).  The party where you share the things that make you happy.  Starting the party early because I’m heading to St. George for our annual ‘girls getaway”.

I learned a long time ago that it’s up to you to find and make your own happiness.  We shouldn’t expect others to do it for us.  After we find our own happiness then we can go on from there and help to make others happy.

Looking forward to see what makes you happy, or in other words “fills your cup”.

What a wonderful Easter Sunday we had!  The weather was perfect and although two of our children were out of town we managed to party hard.

We feasted on ‘Café Rio’ type salads.  A little unusual for Easter, but they sure were yummy!

And played a round of Bocce ball.  Which I might mention that hubby and I won.  Despite me hitting my bird bath and a birdhouse with my ball. lol!  Seriously, I couldn’t have hit them if I tried.

Hope you had a wonderful celebration!

Now on to some great features:

Barbara from 21 Rosemary Lane shared her gorgeous garden themed bedroom makeover.  You must go get a closer look at her stenciled ceiling!

Thoughts from Alice shared her cousins wonderful clock gallery wall.

I had no clue what you were talking about when you mentioned Cafe Rio salads a week ago. I've been under a rock, I guess; so I googled and checked pinterest - now, I know. Sounds a lot like Colorado's Chipotle restaurant. I found all kinds of copy-cat recipes. I'm ready to give it a try - thanks for the inspiration!!! Sally

I am so behind in reading favorite blogs and replying to emails, but I wanted to write a post so I could join your party.

Thanks for hosting.

Susan Clayton said...

Your Easter looks like everything a family get together should be. What wonderful memories you are creating, and what an inspiration you are. Reading blogs, especially yours, I am often reminded of a Bible study for young mothers I was part of (many years ago)called Becoming a Woman of Excellence based on Proverbs. Have a blessed week. Although I don't always link up thanks for hosting -it's always a pleasure.

Hi Jann, I almost missed the party! We're Derby-bound at Panoply, but I've got to stop and admire some of these great, inspiring links - like those drop-cloth curtains (great job, Deborah at Green Willow Pond!). Have a great weekend,
