Our Visitor is.......

Stella!! Have you met her in blog land yet? She was invented by Lindsay-Ann of The Cross Stitch House and Lorrie of The View from my Door. She is going to travel around blog land and see how many places she can visit in one year (like Flat Stanley might do). You can go read all about her here (this is her starting place). Lindsay-Ann & Lorrie also keep track of Stella on their blog so you can always see where she is at or where she has been. Anyway, she arrived with all these goodies. Donna of Party Wishes in California sent her to me. Donna made her a sleeping bag and pillow so she would be able to travel a little more comfortably. She also sent some Chocolate Chip scone mix and some Vanilla Chai tea (cause Stella loves it) and Cadbury mini eggs for Lexi. Thank you so much Donna.♥
After being cooped up for several days traveling, she was ready to explore. She went right outside and jumped into a pile of leaves. You know we have been raking and raking those darn leaves and I don't think we have made a dent yet!
Then she went and played with Lexi. Lexi says Stella is just too much fun!
When bedtime came she laid with Lexi until Lexi fell asleep. Stella wasn't quite ready to go to bed yet so......
She came into the living room and sat with Chelsea, watching TV.
We can't wait to show Stella around Oklahoma. I think she will enjoy her visit. I hope you all have a great Friday and come back on Monday to see what we did over the weekend.

That Stella--she is one world traveler. I notice that her outfit has a few decorations on it. I wonder if they reflect her past journeys.

Oh, you're going to have such fun! Remember, Stella was at our house during Christmas? Keep your eyes on her...she can be quite the character!

Lorrie said...

It's so fun to see Stella at your house, what nice goodies Donna sent you too. I love Stella's sleepig bag, she looks very comfy in it. Thanks you Lexi for helping make Stella feel at home. Have fun with her!

Good Morning Miz Darlene,
Oh My Word! This wasn't who I was expecting but honestly I didn't know who to expect *giggles* Well I can't think of a better person in blogland for Miz Stella to visit. I'm sure between you and Lexi she'll have the best time ever in Oklahoma. Enjoy her visit!

Caren said...

I LOVE HER! What a cute idea. I can't wait to read up on her and what she's been doing. Such a cute idea.

How nice of her to bring the mini-eggs to Lexi...those are my favorites too.

Have a great weekend with Stella but be careful, I hear she likes to stay out late on the weekends and can be quite the party girl.

Yay! Stella got there okay. She had a blast with me visiting the Charles Schulze musuem and hanging out with Helmi. I am happy to see she still has the purse I made for her. I am sure she will have a blast with you and Lexi.

Donna @ Party Wishes said...

It looks like Stella and Lexi have become fast friends. Glad you like all of the goodies and that Stella likes her new sleeping bag.

Have a great time! Can't wait to see the pictures!

Darlene! So that's where Stella is! I'm glad to know she's with you and that she's going to get to see Oklahoma. I went one summer to the University in Norman for a seminar they taught in economic development. Also visited Tulsa and enjoyed that immensely! Can't wait to see where you go with Stella!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Looks like Stella is going to LOVE her new spot! She looked so sweet cuddled up with Lexi in her new sleeping bag Donna made for her!! Stella is a real fun-loving gal--I'm certain you've already noticed! I'm sure anything you show her will be a good time in Stella's book!

Happy Anniversary! I thought I was a baby at 20--you beat me! :)

Have a great weekend. L, Dana

Hi Darlene
Stella looks to be having a great time with you and Lexi. I love the sleeping bag and pillow Donna made for her and the other gifts she sent to you were lovely.
I am so glad she arrived safely and I was able to see her arrive before we leave in just a few hours time!
I look forward to catching up with the rest of her adventures when I get back.
Best Wishes
Lindsay
