spt - the recap


in your easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it...
o.k., o.k., i get it!! NOBODY wears easter bonnets anymore.

this recap is proving to be quite a challenge for me.

i typically spend tuesday perusing the image consultant blogs, commenting, laughing, learning... i then come back on wednesday morning, check on the folks who post tuesday nights, and by that time, a recap "theme" has emerged. (i know, i know, it seems a bit redundant to have a theme to describe the week's theme. what can i say? i'm a theme girl!)

the front-runner for this week's recap seemed to be (in no particular order):

"i've never had a bonnet, and honestly would never think of wearing one;" or the similar "you won't catch us in matching outfits!" (jill - and you MUST know i say this tongue in cheek!! your photos and self-portrait were adorable!!)

"my best-laid plans for a family photo on easter went awry due to [insert reason here];" (tina, allison, amanda)

"i didn't read this week's challenge until a) this morning, b) one hour ago, c) wait, there's a weekly challenge?!?" (price cream parlor)

"look how cute i was as a child at easter!" (sista # 2, michelle a, amy s, jenny)

fortunately, we also got some great family shots (including MOMS!)(stephanie, dana, tiffanie, sheri, becca, jenny d, andy,michelle m, mandy, andrea - really, she's in the photo. you just have to look closely!)

there were some wonderful easter thoughts shared, and i urge you to check out neighbor jane payne so she can share a great story with you!

and i am so happy to see some "absentees" made it back around to the blogosphere this week! (stacy, we TOTALLY forgive your st. patrick's day banner! sandi gets a major spt prize for retro-posting all the spt challenges she missed while in dial-up mode! and claudia put up a 100 list that should not be missed!!)

chris, katherine, and laurie m hop-hop-hopped on board for this week's challenge. welcome!!

in just a few months, spt has grown from 10 image consultants to 60!! (and i know there are more out there!!) i hope you are enjoying it as much as i am!

Lelly, I think I can speak for all of us spt'ers (!?!) when I say YOU ARE INCREDIBLE! Thanks for doing all of the work for spt. We think about the spt, we take one or two (or 50) spt and we post our take on it with or without words. Your interest in reading and commenting on all of the spt's AND recapping is a lot of work and we thank you... :)

Here's a heartfelt thanks from a newbie. It's amazing how it is spreading--but it seems like so much fun so it was hard not to join in. You're amazing!

It's becoming a phenomenon lelly! Just like Kristi's pink Christmas.

Lelly, I can't thank you enough for what you do. I love taking the challenge. To me it means growth, searching, pondering, etc.

Rachel said...

Because you can never hear it enough, YOU ARE AMAZING! THANK YOU for doing this week after week...how awesome that it has grown so quickly! I look forward to these challenges each week - You ROCK!

carlo said...

are you tired by the time thursday comes? between the spt posts and then the recap? :) thanks again.

Stephanie said...

Thanks so much for heading this SPT...I love it!! It's so fun....I actually look forward to Tuesdays.

Amanda :-) said...

I do NOT envy you trying to recap 60 SPTs, Lelly! I, for one, would totally understand if you only did a monthly recap rather than a weekly one!

Bridget said...

Thanks for all of the fun you are bringing us. Can't wait till next week!
