Well, Helloooooo There!


Hi! How are you? Good to see you! Krikey, it's been a while. Were you beginning to think that I'd stuck you forever in Jack Skellington's world of Halloween haunts? I sure was.

A big "thank you" goes out to Cookie Magazine (really, truly, thank you a million and one times) for getting me back into action. (Scroll down the page to see one of my photos in a post on Reading Nooks.) And thanks to all of you (you know who you are...) for your gentle (except when you called me your sorry, lame-o blogger friend) but persistent nudges back in this direction. Nothing was wrong. I just seemed to have lost my virtual voice somehow. And even though I've kept quiet tabs on everyone else this whole time, it feels very nice to be back.

As for the photo? It was from our crazy school sock-hop event. This is only our second time attending, yet each time I've been completely blown away with the thorough 50's-ness of everyone's attire. And the dancing? Wow. The PE teacher makes sure that the kids know how to do all of the dances, from the monster mash to the hand jive and everything between. And the kids actually dance, the whole time. Sweaty, crazy, fall-asleep-the-second-you-get-home dancing. Fun times, Fonz!

Dang, those are some cute little greasers you got there! And Zoe's poodle skirt turned out so cute! What a fun school event. K's school had a Hawaiian luau, which she attended with her daddy-o while I stayed home sicky-o. Blah. Glad your back on the blog-o-rama-bing-bang!

Greetings from Crawfordsville "still the home of Luke Menard although he is NOT the next American Idol". This town has been absolutely crazy with Luke Menard fever. Banners, posters, and front page news all over town.

Love the 50's picture. Sounds like all had a blast at the sock hop. Brings back fond memories from the 60's. I'm too young to remember the 50's plus I was living in Germany at the time where I'm sure the polka was the hit of the decade.
Zoe's birthday is coming up so we hope you'll post some party pictures before you get in another blogger slump. Glad to have you back.

You're back! I have heard stories about those sock-hops... sounds like way too much fun! I know how much you hate to dress up but I'm glad you could go along with it for the kids. :)

So YOU'RE the one! The famous Meegan Blue. My sister Laura (see above) told me all about you. We've been blog stalkers for a long time now. Now we have our own, and I believe, If you trace it all back, it begins with you.
Nice to meet you!
