Open House Party


Welcome to the Open House Party!


This is the last day to enter the GIVEAWAY for a $50.00 gift of your
choice from Novica.

We had family visiting for the last seven days and they just left to
return to Orlando.  I especially enjoyed spending time with two of
 our adorable grandchildren. 

 Now I know why God gives children to young people... I am exhausted!

We have a really busy summer planned, including a trip to Destin  and
one to Orlando.  In July our grandson will be staying with us for two
weeks and we have lots of summer fun planned. In addition, we are still
trying to sale our house and just made a huge reduction in price..uuggh! 
  Hopefully, we will be moving this summer.

There is so much going on right now I have decided to put the Home Tour
 on hiatus until Fall.   This part of the party is so time consuming it just makes
 sense for me to put it on hold for a while. 

  The Linky party will still be held each week and I hope you will continue
 to link to the Open House party.  I will be featuring some of my favorite
links from the previous week.

Thanks for your understanding and I am excited to see what you have to
share this week.

On to the Linky party...

Sounds like a fun summer filled with travel & family!

Sorry you had to lower your asking price - that happened to us on our last house and it was so stressful!! But it finally sold and we moved on which will happen to you (did you try burying a St Joseph statue in the yard)?!

It's okay to take a break, Sherry. Glad you got to spend time with family. Praying you sell, and move on. Thanks for hosting.

Yes, they do wear you out. Leila is a handful now. Deeby do this and Deeby do that. That is how she says Grammy. Can't quite do the g r yet. Totally understand the party situation. Thanks for hosting.

I know how exhausting young kids can be! I was with a group of them this morning for a couple of hours. But, they sure do put a smile on my face!! Thanks for hosting.

That's too bad about bringing the price down on the house. I do hope you get a great offer and enjoy your summer. Thanks for hosting the link party with all you have going on.

Oh-I sure hope your house sells, Sherry. We have decided to wait a few years to see if the market pops back a bit...although I don't think we took quite as big of a hit as a lot of the country did. Hope you can get some rest before the next grandchild adventure- xo Diana

Candy said...

Thanks so much for hosting. I have linked up and linked back to you. Also following by GFC. Now Im going up to visit some of the other linkees. Is that a word? 8-)

Richella said...

Sherry, I am so glad to be linking up with you this week! Your party is lovely. Speaking as one who has been the blessed recipient of your Open House post in the past, I KNOW you must spend a lot of time on those posts! So it certainly makes sense to me that you would take a break from that part of the process.

I am so sorry that you've had to reduce your asking price. Your home is so beautiful--I would have thought that it would sell in a heartbeat! But there's just no predicting the real estate market, is there? I hope it moves quickly for you now.

Take care!

Hi Sherry,
I've got my grands all week while my daughter is on her honeymoon and I just made the comment to hubby tonight that I'm glad I had my children when young (gave birth to all 3 before I hit 30). Hope you sell your house soon. Thanks for hosting.
