{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

{Red, White and Blue}

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!   Memorial Day honors America’s military men and women who lost their lives in service to their country and I don't know about y'all but RED, WHITE and BLUE will always prevail in my book.  And my youngest granddaughter got all caught up with the RED, WHITE AND BLUE.... AND TWO! She is celebrating her 2nd birthday today and a little ham she is!  I done a little photo shoot of her to celebrate her red, white and two and she surely brought on the smiles.  And the grins... And  the wide mouth expressions when she would hear a tractor mowing in the fields nearby!   We had a ball snapping pictures for this sweet girl.  She just melts this Nana's heart... I can't believe our youngest is already TWO!  My mercy! I could just kiss her little face off! And pretty much do.  Our family celebrated her birthday with a little family party with cake, cupcakes and ice cream. She was

{Birthday, Cakes and Bread}

This sweet sweet granddaughter just celebrated her 9th birthday. I know y'all, seems my tribe has a birthday every month and well, we just about do!  Kyleigh brings our family so much joy. She has the sweetest and most loving personality ever.  This child never meets a stranger and loves with her whole heart.    Our family celebrated her birthday with a little party but then she got to spend the day  at the beach with her cousin. Oh the days of bikinis and eating what you wanted too................ I took a day to bake cakes to freeze for upcoming birthdays and well, maybe a Sunday dinner. Yep, we have another family birthday coming up this month.  I love baking fresh bread and haven't baked any in a while so decided on a loaf of fresh rosemary bread. Gathered some rosemary from my herbs and whipped up a loaf. The worst part is waiting on it to rise. But I was painting a new pump house my husband built so the time went by p

{Girls Just Wanna Have Fun} And We Did!

We had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday. Let me just tell y'all a little secret. There is NEVER a dull or boring moment when my three daughter's are around! After a wonderful lunch we all went outside and while the younger kids played us older kids played too. We set up a tripod with a remote control switch and we snapped no telling how pictures of ourselves goofing off.  We got so tickled one time at ourselves because I had put the remote control in my pants pocket and I was trying to find it  non-conspicuously to snap a picture!    These gals of mine are crazy! A couple of the younger girls got in on the fun. Needless to say a lot of my flowers got picked yesterday! My oldest daughter did manage to get a picture with her two kids and the grandson doesn't like standing still long enough for a picture so that was a blessing.  I was truly lavished with sweet gifts from my girls. I was so excited about my new coo

{Birthday, Nail appointment and Flowers} A great combination huh?

My first born celebrated her birthday and I must say, her daddy is sure getting older!  We had a wonderful lunch and my oldest granddaughter baked her mama a birthday cake. Doesn't it look too pretty to eat? My grandgirl has become quite the baker and that makes me so happy. Kristy is quite amazing. She truly has a kind and humble spirit that shows the love of Christ to her family, friends and to all that know her. We couldn't be more proud of her. I decided it was time to do my nails so I made myself a nail appointment at Cindy's Nail Salon .  I have no excuse for not doing them as I keep plenty of nail supplies around for the grandgirls. Mercy, I have a whole cabinet of nail stuff.  When you have five granddaughters then you have nail supplies, hair bows, lipstick and stuff to make cookies! I probably threw away at least a dozen bottles that had dried up. But finally narrowed it down to a few of my favorite colors.   Now to mak
