Sunday Delight: We are Back!

Happy Sunday Everyone!
We are back!  I am so happy to tell you we (my computer) and I are back to blogging.  Last week, my computer's motherboard fired and died.  Sigh!  It was awful!!!!  I was whining and so upset because I had to make the discussion between getting this one fixed or getting a new laptop.  ARGH!  That is hard because I am a MAC girl through and through.  So the cost of fixing the motherboard at $400.00 looked a lot better than the $2,000 I would have to pay to get a used MAC Book Pro.  I bit the bullet and here we are back in the saddle.  Wheeww!  Going a week without my laptop is a mess.  Never again!   I hope!  
Now I have like 20 reviews to do and a million post to get caught up on.
