I surely hope that you all have had a great weekend and that your week will bring lots of blessings your way. I have sure have had a good weekend.Anytime it's spent with family or friends it's good.
Don't you just love my little sign? My daughter Melissa and I and her two girls had a shopping day and we went to Books A Million. I spotted this little sign and I knew it would be perfect for my little room. Which in reality it is my home office but will always be my little room. More on that later!
I am reminded quite often the words of this sign.
The youngest grandgirl wanted Nana to read to her so down in the floor I went. Now let me go ahead and tell you that getting down in the floor wasn't half bad. GETTING UP? See here, I thought I was fixing to have to call SECURITY to come get me out of that floor!
That grandgirl loved every minute of it though.
Then a trip to Academy was in store and this little thing cracks me up. She is a "people person" all the way and quickly made friends with the headless man! LOL! She had to try on helmets, then she found a little track she needed to run on and do her daily exercise and of course she needed to sit and rest.
There is never a dull moment when she is around.
We made our way to Panera's, one of my favorite places to eat. The girls got to have their dessert first! YEP, that's what I am talking bout! We had lots of fun shopping.
Of course Nana had to try on different hats.
I sorta like the Tiara the best.
But my favorite picture of the day was with these two cuties.
We had such a good day and then me and man made a trip the next day to none other than Bass Pro Shop. I really
YEP, I was a happy camper...or huntress!
And my youngest daughter was a happy huntress as well as she got Mama's older boots! Which looks just like they did the day I bought them but I love the "SHE" products for the outdoor woman.
After several more stops my final destination was a trip to Bealls outlet. I always find something there and I especially love to browse through their spices and condiments. You can get the neatest stuff! I love Vidalia Onion and peppercorn dressing and when I saw this in a reusable carafe...well that was like getting two things for the price of one. I use olive oil all the time and this one has lemon and parsley! YAY! I have a recipe I am wanting to try that calls for Sriracha so it came home with me too. Sriracha has become one of the most popular condiments on the market, and for good reason. It adds a kick to your recipes and actually makes what might seem kind of boring exciting to eat! LOL! My man said I have watched entirely too many episodes of Chopped! TRUE! I can't use it to heavily as I love spicy but it HATES ME! We love Salmon and I am wanting to try out a new salmon recipe with a Sriracha glaze.
Then I was gifted these beautiful paper roses! Oh my! LOVE them! My first idea was to create a piece for my wall in my little room on canvas with fabric and using some of the paper roses.
I am still not quite sure what I will come up with but I actually love this paper rose sitting in my chair.
We finished off the weekend with church and dinner with my family and celebrated Father's Day with the men in our life along with my soninlove, Jered's birthday.
Oh, and most of you know how much I love cooking with herbs, especially those I have grown. I have several heirlooms that I must take the time to snap a picture for you to see. My Rosemary has done me well this season. In honor of my little herbs doing so well I want to have a giveaway.
Some months back I showed you all a picture of this cute salt and pepper shaker that I had bought. I actually bought two sets with intentions of gifting one set. So...now I will be sending it to one of you along with this cute hand towel.
All you have to do is tell me what is your favorite herb to cook with. Winner will be announced next week.
In closing I would like to leave this with you today.
God has no problems....only plans.
