It seems like every blog (almost) that I look at these days has some info about the Bead Soup Blog Party (which I keep calling the Blog Soup Bead Party!). My partner is Kelly at Adventures with Kelly and what a breath of fresh air she is! She couldn't be more opposite me -- she's young, she's a gardener, she cooks, she backpacks and hikes (OMG!), she's a newlywed (a year still counts, right?). And I love reading about her active life, and her cooking, and pets. I'm very grateful to Lori for introducing us.
That said, I had a horrible time picking out beads! I wanted to send things she'd enjoy and that kind of went along with her lifestyle. But I was having so much trouble picking out the right things that I actually thought several times that I shouldn't have joined this party.
Now, you all know that one of the reasons I started this blog was so I could participate in this party. But this angst I'm having is not so fun. The package is mailed. The deed is done. I hope I didn't get it totally wrong.
No photos (I was so distressed I forgot to take any). I hope you're all having fun with this and not getting so stressed out by it!
