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!

Red, White and Blueberries

   I love berries, especially when you get to pick them yourself!  We had a blast picking red raspberries and blueberries this weekend.  I LOVE raspberries!  I even risked a "spider encounter" for them!  (You never know when you are going to come across something with 8 legs- ugh)  These pictures make me think of the 4th of July.  Wouldn't this be great for a 4th of July party?  Parfait glasses filled with sweet berries- and perhaps some vanilla ice cream?  Yummmmy!
What big plans do you have for the 4th of July?

oh..good question from dragovich! Those do look SCRUMPTIOUS! My big plans are camping (hopefully this time without a tadpole...whew..so MAYBE some relaxing? yes? maybe?) then going out on the boat on the fourth to watch the big fireworks show across the lake. What big plans do YOU have berry lady?

We have talked about staying at the Chateau on the Lake in Branson- dreamy!!!! They have a kid's club, bonfires at night, a big "bear" that brings cookies and milk to the kids at bedtime, scuba diving, a huge kid's playground, they serve afternoon tea, have an ice cream parlor, a movie theater in the hotel, and I could go on... Can you tell I want to go??? Oh, they also have a huge fireworks display- just for the hotel guests.:-) Lori

Last year we had a cookout then watched the gorgeous fireworks from a top the kid's playset. We are amazed how many fireworks are shot in the Springdale/Tontitown area! This year we'll hang out in the treehouse! Branson always sounds great to me and oh how the Chateau lavishes on you!!!!!
