About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Bonfire on the Beach!

   On our last night at the beach we had a fabulous bonfire!  There was a full moon and we had the beach to ourselves (besides a friendly group of crab "explorers" hunting with their nets:-) ).  All week the girls had been collecting firewood found on the beach and that night we (actually, Jeff) were able to make quite a wonderful fire.  (We could not have done it without my Mom remembering the matches, though!)  We enjoyed the most delicious hotdogs (Nathan's- the BEST) and, everyone's favorite, s'mores!  I have to tell you that my husband makes the perfect toasted marshmallow.  Lightly brown and amazingly gooey on the inside- plus, no burn!  Who needs chocolate when they are that good??  The girls were sporting their cool head lights that my parents gave them (Mommy did not have to hold anything!) and Jeff got to use his new lantern.  Perfect!  Katie even found my camera lens cap that I had lost earlier that day.  It could not have been better!
