{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


SWEET SUMMER TIME..... Web image.... There is nothing better than a warm blanket on a chilly night EXCEPT for watermelon and ice cream with the family in the summer! That large family began because of this couple, my husband's parents. My motherinlove went home to be with the Lord a few years back but she surely instilled in each of her children the importance of FAMILY . They had four children. And minus quite a few that could not be there with us, this is FAMILY . The Conner family finally got to be together  (due to Covid restrictions) for watermelon, ice cream and fellowship and what a great time had by all. Not everyone could come but for those that could, we surely enjoyed our time together. The little ones enjoyed their time together so much. We had a red neck slip and slide, little pool, water tables, watermelon seed spitting contest, ice cream galore, drinks, cake, and watermelon! I mean really, what else could a kid want.....OR ADULT ! We surely did enjoy our special

{It's Been a Nana Kind Of Weekend}

Kyleigh and I had a little one on one time this weekend and there was never a dull moment NOR a quiet one. LOL! But, she likes to sleep in in the mornings and then get up and lay around a bit! We call it "Our quiet time" . A girl after my own heart!  Fresh jumbo blueberry and chocolate chip muffins was on the agenda for one morning.  Of course she loves to share with her cousin Ada, my 4 year old grandgirl, so share is what we did.  This sweet girl gives more away than she keeps. Including gifts that you may give to her! LOL! She got a lesson in re-potting flowers and loved it.  Not sure what she liked the best. Digging in the dirt or wearing my gloves. Two of the pink petals fell off during the re-potting stage and she picks them up and carries them to lay on the grass by the pond. She told me that when the wind blew that those petals would fly to heaven so her Grandmother (On her dad's side) and her 2-Nanny as she called her (on her mom's side) would each have a pre

{Food And Family} What Better Combination?

I hope that you all have been enjoying your weekend. We have had lots of rain and with trying to work outside this weekend well, it's been a hit and a miss! But I am enjoying a little bounty from my little garden and of course baking! And, trying out a new recipe for grilled chicken that I would like to share. SO GOOD!  Of course my family enjoyed the cake after Sunday dinner too. Who doesn't like cake balls on top drizzled in Hersey's chocolate glaze????  I tried a new recipe for a marinade and a sauce for grilled chicken wings. If you like chicken and you like to grill  then this recipe is a MUST . Marinade   2-3 lbs chicken wings 3/4 cup of Olive Oil 2 tablespoons of onion powder 2 tablespoons of Garlic powder (I used garlic and herbs) 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper Juice of one lemon 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of black pepper Mix with a whisk and coat chicken pieces. Place in a bowl wrapped with foil or plastic wrap or Ziplock bags. Refrigerate overnight. Al


Well Nana has been back at it again snapping pictures of two of grandgirls. These girls are sisters and they each have their own unique personality in which I wouldn't have it any other way. They each bring their own style and charisma to the table and it surely makes life more interesting and fun. This girl loves her some ball playin g. She plays travel ball and enjoys it so much. She is our "Sports" girl for sure.  She's little but oh is she fast! Just give this cute girl a dance costume or for that matter, any kind of prissy clothes, makeup and jewelry and she is good to go. She loves to dance. This girl right here loves her some Star Bucks and enjoys being with her friends and family. This sweet thing here loves glitter, bling, dress up and dippin dots ice cream!  Most often the first place she explores is my latest jewelry buys! She is truly a girl after my own heart because she LOVES her some lipstick! Marty and I took a little time for "Just us" and
