Sundays With Joy Round Up

(Photo Courtesy of Ellen Brandt of Indigo Scones)

Sundays With Joy a day late!

Can anything in my life just go smoothly? Why is it always filled with chaos? Perhaps I just create chaos everywhere I go.... who knows. 

This week for Sundays With Joy we were making the S'more Brownies. I contemplated making them. I almost did. BUT I have a S'more Brownie on the blog that is stick gooey and messy. Everything I'd expect in a s'more brownies. I just wasn't feeling the idea of another S'more post this week. Instead I promised my favorite Sundays With Joy ladies I would do a round up post instead.

I started up loading pictures getting my post going on Saturday night.... Then Ollie struck. He being the big 120lb dummy that he is....*meat head* bumped his big fatty butt into the desk my lap top was on. Knocking it to the ground. Practically crushing it. The hole where the power cord goes in kind just fell apart and wouldn't work. Which is a bad thing when you need a battery replacement to begin with. So my computer was instantly dead.

In Ollies defense my computer was irresponsibly sitting on a stack of god knows what and fell a bit too easily.

My husband was not thrilled.

He is always getting after me for not taking care of my expensive electronics properly.... like my ipad, droid, Nikon... all at this moment sitting on the counter next to a cup of water, or laying on the couch or floor.

That's just how I roll.

I am unorganized.

You can all get a feel for that probably just by reading my blog!

So yeah....

There's my story. Now for Sundays With Joy...........

We have 100+ members in our group right now. Only a small handful are bloggers who post regularly the rest of our regulars... are blog readers! They found our group through me, other blogs or even Joy herself.

A few of us Joy fan's even have had the pleasure of meeting her this year! How lucky are these ladies!

I won't lie... I am insanely jealous of these ladies and getting to meet Joy. JOY COME TO BOSTON!! Pretty please with sugar and brown butter on top??!?!?!
