- 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!

Sheila Sells Seashells... My new favorite! It's going in the shop tomorrow....
1/2 price frappuccinno's this week at Starbucks! Oh my goodness! They even have non-fat ones! How is this possible?! Run out and try one (or three!) this week between 3 and 5!
I am a huge fan of Bare Minerals. Love their mineral powder. But, there is a new name in town. Avon. Yes, I said Avon! They have a mineral powder that rivals Bare Minerals and it is much less expensive! I bought some this weekend- on promotion 2 for $10. MmmHmmm.... I do believe that Bare Minerals is (ahem) $25.
Hope you had the most amazing Mother's Day, dear friends! We went to Carrabba's for lunch and then out to see this movie! It was absolutely amazing and I highly recommend that you go and see it!
I absolutely adore my Mom. She always knows how to make me feel better. She puts up with my moods! People are drawn to her and she makes friends everywhere she goes. She is kind. She is creative. She always finds new and exciting places to explore!
She is the most wonderful Grandma. She does not favor and magically makes both my girls feel so very special.

My new favorite! Sheila Sells Seashells.... Freshwater pearls, mother of pearl, amber Swarovski crystals, nautical buttons and a fabulous seashell accented in gold! I am soooo tempted to keep this one...
Loving the blue and green- like the sea...
Going in the shop later tonight...
The best husband (and Daddy- as pictured below) in the world just took us to the beach!
See the ocean? You could hear the waves crashing as you lounged by the pool. Ahhhh....
We went down to Fort Morgan, AL and it was as lovely as always. No oil.:) There were a couple of lost jellyfish on the sand but we just tiptoed around them...
One of the perks of home schooling is being able to vacation anytime! The weather was perfect, the price was right (high season starts in a week or so) and we had the place almost all to ourselves!
We went to Lulu's for dinner almost every night. Love. That. Place. We blow bubbles at the table, listen to the live music, the kids play in the sand and we watch the boats go by. You really feel like you are on vacation- no worries. Oh, and the cheeseburgers (pepper jack cheese on mine, please) and hush puppies are unreal!
We stayed in Alabama Sunrise this year. Right by the beach:)
Bendaroos are a mother's dream. No glue, no mess and my girls both had a blast with them! We got ours at Target...
The beach house was such fun! The sun was shining inside even on the day that it rained.:)
These Nail Art Pens (Wal Mart) are a must have for summer! They come in a variety of colors. You can write letters or draw flowers on your nails! I put polka dots on mine.:)
Still tons to do to "recover" from vacation. Does everyone feel that way? Oh, and I stopped by the Blue Girl Bead shop on our way out of town. They have the most gorgeous baubles there! I cannot wait to start filling up my shop!:)
Oh, I almost forgot, I read a book called Barefoot while I was at the beach and really enjoyed it. It was not the caliber of The Help, but it was a great beach read. It's a second hand copy but would anyone like me to send it to them?
