{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

{Birthday, Basketball, and a Recipe for the BEST Choclolate Frosting EVER}

YUM....yes I think I would like one of those please..... Who doesn't like chocolate covered strawberries or a piece of milk chocolate candy? My granddaughter Mallory Grace just turned 12 years old and she asked me to bake her birthday cake. Just something simple....Chocolate cake with chocolate icing and chocolate covered strawberries.  Ladies, how can a Nana turn that down? Her wish came true.... Best chocolate icing recipe ever! I will place recipe at the bottom. She's a gal after my own heart. She's a Jesus loving girl that enjoys hunting, travel ball, dressing up, makeup, jewelry and well, she loves about everything. My well rounded girl for sure. My FAVORITE grandson...yes, he's my only grandson, plays basketball. Well, he likes all sports and one doesn't end before he's playing another sport. We sure enjoy watching him play whatever sport he's in. And, I took some time out for ME! A beautiful sun set sitting i

{Good Times and Making Memories}

I am much later posting this week than usual but my mercy has time just seemed to get away from me here lately. Better late than never...right? In honor of Veterans Day I just want to thank all of those that have served or is still serving our country in the military. I have quite a few military hero's in my family. My grandfather and brother served in the Navy. One of my Soninlove's served in the Marines. My uncle served in the Air Force and I have a nephew currently serving in the Navy. My utmost thanks and gratitude stands.  My granddaughter Kyleigh was part of a Veterans day program at her school this past Friday and it was truly heart touching.   She's the cute little girl with the red top, glasses and smiling. Those kids sang their little hearts out and all our military was honored, past and present. It was truly a very special time.   My oldest and first born grandchild went to a Fall Ball recently. I can't believe she is 15 yea

{It's Been A Wonderful Weekend}

I enjoyed some time in the great outdoors with my granddaughter Mallory over the weekend.Our family enjoys deer hunting together but there's just something special when you and your grandgirl can celebrate a harvest together!  Me and the grandgirl downed some nice bucks in those old Georgia pines on Saturday morning. YEP, we showed the men folk how it's done! It was a perfect morning to sit in a tree stand with a brisk 36 degrees. My kind of hunting weather and perfect for coffee in my Georgia thermos.  Speaking of Georgia....the day even got BETTER!   Two nice bucks harvested and my Georgia Bulldogs took the win.  The guys stayed at the camp but me and the grandgirl stayed at a hotel. And, just because we were out hunting didn't mean we couldn't enjoy some of the finer things in life. Oh yeah, I had those cute little cups wrapped tightly in my suitcase along with hot chocolate, cookies, and well....LOTS OF GOODIES! Boy, our God sure is a wond
