{Beaching with the Girls}

Good Sunday afternoon everyone. I hope that you all are having a wonderful Sunday and that tomorrow, July 4th, that you enjoy your red, white and blues. I just returned from from a short getaway to Fernandina Beach with my three daughters and we had such a wonderful time. We had one shower of rain but needless to say, I was a drowned rat! But oh did it ever feel so good and I simply just give praise for the much needed rain and time away with the girls. I for sure got the biggest soaking but then I can't move as fast as my girls! LOL!  Web image We had a lovely meal at the Boathouse one evening. We had about an hour wait so we walked around the historic district for a bit and oh my! I found the cutest little Christmas ornament shop. I can't believe I did not take any pictures. Especially when I LOVE ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS.  There is nothing like the sound of the ocean and the clean salt air to me.  We had brunch one morning at Sliders and one can never go wrong with Grits and Shr

{It's My Birthday and I can Cry if I Want Too}

But, I'm NOT because I am thankful for the life that God gives to me. Whether it be another year, month, day or moment...I am truly grateful.  But turning 60 does have some advantages... Web image Gotta love Maxine! My three daughter's surprised me for my birthday. It all started with this pretty red and silver box.  Nestled inside the box was a scroll tied with red ribbon.  Here is a snap shot of my birthday gift from my daughter's and their family. I was so surprised and needless to say excited. My man was excited too because this was a treat for him as well. He was liking my birthday pretty good. LOL!  We had such a wonderful time together.  My oldest daughter and her husband. My middle daughter and her husband. My youngest daughter and her husband.  I was greeted with birthday confetti on the table and a card signed by some of the staff. The food was absolutely delicious and my b

{It's a Sweet Life}

Well now doesn't that Valentine cupcake look good? It's a shame it wasn't eatable!  I have a set of 8 these place card holders but decided to use just one for my simple dining for two at the breakfast bar.  Nothing fancy but dining at the breakfast bar is all we need for the two of us. But It sure makes me smile to doll it up just a tad.  Don't you just love the cute salt/pepper shakers?  I am enjoying using the wooden tray as well and have used it for several things. I found it at a thrift store months ago for $2. I have surely been enjoying my Valentine Tree, tablescape and other V-Day decor.  Can't decide if I want to decorate for Saint Patty's day or just wait a bit and get my "Spring on". Do you decorate for Saint Patrick's day? Web image   My man and I had a Day Date on Friday. We hit the Bass Pro Shop and came out with more bags than we needed.  We went to the Mall to do a little shopping too. Yes, I cam

{Valentine Tablescape}

Don't you just love my scripture plates? I found a set of 8 plates a few years ago at Ross and grabbed them up quick. I have enjoyed using them at different times. My centerpiece is simple as is my tablescape.  My little naked fat babies as the "Grands" call them came out to make their appearance.  Red, white and black seemed to be my color theme this year for Valentine's.  The red hearts in the center of the plates I made out of card stock. Several of you have asked me about my dining table. My grandfather built my table and benches many years ago. Nothing fancy about it but it sure means the world to me. The table is a little wider than the average dining table and it makes it hard to find a fitted tablecloth. I do have several that fit well but most often I would rather use a runner or pretty blankets or different colors of material for overlays. I have taken material when I have found it on sale and whippe
