Halloween, 2010

I know! I know!
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, & I'm talking about Halloween.
I just wanted to share a couple of pics from Halloween.

{The Fat One got into the candy}

{I was Little Miss Muffet}

{Along came a spider, but he didn't scare me away!}


{My sister, Anna, was a scarecrow}

{Simeon & Anna}

{Carol, Dad, Haven & Anna}

{Anna & I}

{Haven & Carol}

{Her costume was so warm that she passed out!}

{Her 1st Halloween was tiresome!}

New Name

So, as you can tell, I decided to make a name change.
I've seen a few blogs with the same name as mine,
so I thought I'd go with something different.
I remember looking at some color samples one time,
and Buttercup & Lagoon were two of the available colors.
Buttercup was a dark yellow, and Lagoon was a bright blue.
I love these two colors together,
and I liked the way it sounded when you say them together...Buttercup Lagoon.
It sounds like the name of a cute little thrift shop or bakery.
And now, it's the name of my blog.

Buttercup Lagoon...where I share a few of my favorite things!

New Post

So.....it's been more than 3 months since I've posted a new post. It's weird. I've been through a lot in the last 3 months. And I've really had a ton of free time to post. Honestly, I could've posted a new post every. single. day. I could've posted 3 & 4 posts per day. I've seriously had that much time on my hands. Anyway.....the time has past. It's over...done. I can't go back & change it. From this day forward I will...um, move forward! So, here's to pushing forth!

p.s. The above photo has nothing to do with a new post of moving/pushing forward. I just like the colors of these coffee mugs. They make me smile every time I see them!
