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!

Quick Catch Up

   We're home!  It's so nice to be here, too.  I love vacations, but it is so nice coming home to your own cozy bed.  sigh..  I am still sick, but my bronchitis cough has changed a bit and I am praying that it is a sign of improvement.  Thanks again for all your prayers and well wishes, dear friends.  You are truly the BEST.
   Here are some pics from Katie's ballet.  We left for the beach after her performance.  It was a lovely evening and Katie was such a cute bumble bee!


   While at the beach, the girls both got hair wraps.  They are so much fun and are supposed to last about 2 months.  Mandy became a surfer girl over night and spent much of her beach time in the water.  Robin- we watched a bit of Blue Crush and looked for your niece.:)


   Here the girls are at Lulu's.  It's the restaurant owned by Lucy Buffett (Jimmy Buffett's sister).  Yes, we ate there 4 times!  If you have ever been there, you would understand why.  Great food, dining by the water, fun music, fabulous t-shirts, and a beach for the kids- with toys!  Love it.

   This picture was taken outside our beach house.  

   Dining by the water at Lulu's...


   The colors by the water are amazing.  So simple- a piece of a shell is a masterpiece in itself...
   This shell looks like it has a heart shaped hole...

   We had one night with the most relaxing rain storm.  It's the one night that I actually got some rest and it was heavenly...


   Who knew you could have so much fun on a golf cart?  Some of our best beach memories are from giggling while we zip around!

Yes- Lulu's again.:)  Heather- this is the dress I told you about!:)


   This was our back porch at the beach house.  We enjoyed cake, long talks, games of Bananagrams and Polly Pocket here.  Katie and I also spent the most relaxing evening- just the two of us- drawing pictures here.  Heavenly.  

   Where is your favorite place to go on vacation?

Hello stranger!

I hope you are doing much better. That time at the beach was peaceful and you were able to recover some before heading home.

We will not be seeing much of the beach this year :0(

We are going to head out next Friday for a family reunion and then on a great America cross country drive to the west.

Miss you!
