BEST OF THE WEEKEND AND A CALL FOR CO-HOSTS












Howdy do, friends! 
So glad to see you here at Best of the Weekend!  
After an unbearable heat wave 
(which I'd still take over snow any day!),
we have had a fabulous stretch of glorious summer weather.
As you are reading this, I'll be sitting on the deck
hopefully with a cocktail in one hand, 
and a mosquito swatter in the other. 


  Before we get to the party,
I've got a bit of business to discuss.
One of our BOTW co-hosts, Katherine, 
has had to leave the party
due to other obligations.
Sooooooo.......we are looking for a new co-host.

In fact, we'd love to find two new co-hosts!
If you are interested, please send me an email at
mstoodygooshoes36@gmail.com
I'd love to hear from you!

Okay, are you ready to start this party?
Let's get to it! 



We'd appreciate it if you'd follow your co-hosts!

PHOTO DIARY JUNE 2018: THINGS CHANGE





Photo Diary June 2018 | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes



In June, things changed..........

Friendships were rekindled.
A baby bird hatched.
A new leaf appeared.
Blossoms bloomed bolder.
  Days grew longer, then shorter.
The bathroom had a facelift.
A puppy got a summer hairdo. 
Storm clouds loomed; skies turned pink.
We went from here to there; there to here. 

Change was good. 




 June plants were busting out all over.

Sometimes you need to change your pants.

And sometimes, you need to change your proofreader. Hail to the Chief.

Time spent in New York City was a nice break from the suburbs.......

BEST OF THE WEEKEND AND HAMILTON!












Hello, and welcome to Best Of The Weekend!
I hope you all had a great 4th of July.
Guess where I am right now as we start this party?
I'm FINALLY seeing the Broadway show, Hamilton!

It's a total coincidence that I'm seeing this story about
Alexander Hamilton, one of the founding fathers of our country, 
during the week we celebrate America's independence.
 I'm super-pumped!

Okay, are you ready to start this party?
Let's get to it!


We'd appreciate it if you'd follow your co-hosts!
