One more is a little closer look at the calender. You can't see the whole thing, but it's super cute. James' sister worked very hard to make them for the girls. Thanks Aunt T !!

The Countdown is Over!

Here it is...the last day of the count down calender....We are very excited that the trip is finally here ! The eagle flies at midnight...that's code for: we leave at midnight. I think I'm the only one ready for the drive, but I'm ok with that. I'm a road trip kind of gal. Pray for safe travel and decent weather and check back for updates. I'm going to try to post some while we are gone.

This is Zoe. She's a Boston Terrorist and she wears dentures. Ok, she doesn't really, but her under bite is so bad that her teeth stick out most of the time. They are so perfect and straight that we call them dentures. Its very hard to take a picture of her because she's part kangaroo, but I like her.

A Girl and a Chicken

My mother saved one of her baby chicks from near death, and it thinks its a dog or cat ! I say "it" because its not obvious yet if it's a hen or a rooster. This chicken tries to come in the house and they've tried to get it to go with its mom and siblings, but it will chase behind mom when she turns her back. I only hope she hasn't named it. Emma loves it though and she thinks it's funny.

When I got home from work the other day she said "Look ! I'm a pirate ! Argh!!!"
Sorry for the bad quality of the photography you know.

2 More Days !

Well...give or take a few hours !!! I can almost see the castle from here. I can't wait to see my old friends, Cindy, Snow and of course my newest friend Princess Ti....I'm just as excited as the kids ! Ok, I may be MORE excited. It's debatable. Either way, the count down has been on like Donky Kong, and the end is drawing near!

Blogging again ?

Well, I'm not making any commitments, but due to recent changes in computer access, yes, I could be blogging some again. Where have I been ? What have I been doing ? Loads !!! That's my story, sticking to it. It's been so long since I posted, I really didn't know where to begin, so rather than go backwards, we will go forward and we will start with the weekend getaway.

This weekend I was privileged to get a weekend away with James, my sister and her husband, and two other couples. We went to Boerne, TX and stayed at a golf resort. The fellas got more than their share of golf while the girls shopped. The hill country is great, and given the chance, and maybe some lotto winnings (even though I don't play) I'd move there in a heart beat. There are some great shops in Boerne on a small scale and we met some very helpful and Texas friendly shop owners. We were also fortunate enough to take a little drive to Fredericksburg. It's a magical little place and I could probably spend more time there than my budget allows. I have several favorite items after the trip and here are a few of them:

Ok, I get it's not an item, but a store built inside an old Buick dealership. I really don't have a favorite item in this store. I love it all !

Always liked it, but now I love it !! It was everywhere on everything ! I've researched this morning some tutorials on making chairs like these, and once I find the right vintage base, this type of chair will be perfect for an upcoming project.

LOVE pillow cases.
I want these, plain and simple.

Mackenzie-Childs checkered grill.
I'll ever own one of these and I honestly couldn't see dirtying it up, but it was just too cute.
Emma has already asked to change her bedroom for Christmas, so I may have to consider this company. The problem would be choosing. Super funky, excellent quality.

Very soon we will be leaving for Disneyworld. I'm hoping that my blogging days aren't over and I'll be able to give a few Mickey updates while we are gone. I hope everyone is enjoying the summer and hopefully I'll be back soon !!!
