Sooooo, remember that one picnic thing??

Uh, ha-ha!  (sheepish laugh)  Didn't I promise you a wrap up of our "life's a picnic!" event with features and all?  Like, oh, I don't know, forever ago?  Actually, it was supposed to go up on September 5th - that being Labor Day and all, it seemed like the most appropriate day for a picnic!  But then there was all that craziness with mr's parents coming, and mr's dad's birthday and then my surprise birthday, and, well, you know.

So, the good new is, I'm wrapping it up now!  I couldn't leave you all hanging.  Actually, I couldn't leave myself hanging - I HATE loose ends.  A lot.  And the other good news is, you can still put these ideas to use for a few weeks, right?  Maybe longer depending on where you live! A fall picnic could be considered even better than a summer one, right?  No bees trying to kill you, no crazy insects climbing all over you terrifying your children, no sun beating down on you burning you to a crisp... I'm just trying to look on the bright side, here.  

So today I'd like to point out some amazing projects.  Then tomorrow I'll really wrap things up nicely with a neat little bow.

Our fun "Life's a Picnic!" party got 50 links.  I wish I could feature all 50, but that would be an incredibly long post.  So I'll stick to just a few.  Go check out all of the great ideas.
