Hey There

Hey there folks.  It's been way too long since I blogged. Things have just been busy, and of course we've had some beautiful weather.  Beautiful weather before the scorching summer sets in makes me want to spend more time outdoors of course.


I enjoyed shopping with my niece Melody yesterday.  She has just received her engagement ring and will now have the joy of planning a beautiful wedding.


That'll keep me busy.

Simply Crisp & Beautiful

It's been so beautiful, a mixture of warms days then cooler days followed by colder nights.  We are fully experiencing spring.

Just perfect weather for getting outside and enjoying God's beauty.





 
But our little munchkins below, bless their hearts they are still cold.  They are in Missouri.  But they were able to get out and take advantage of a beautiful sunny weekend and go the large zoo they live close to.
 
 
 

 
And my mom and I are already enjoying some thrifting/junkin'.  We went last week and will probably be stopping in a few places tomorrow as we travel up into the country to donate some clothes to a church up there with a thrift store. 
 
So you need to get out there an enjoy!  I hope you are.

My Latest Perfect Find

I am so excited.  I found the very same mirror that I fell in love with a few weeks ago.  I found the mirror online but it was in the UK and the wrong color. 

This is the one I found online.  I knew nothing else would make me happy for a dresser top mirror once I saw this.  I would have to paint it if I ordered this one, not to mention what the shipping would cost.  I had already been looking around at stores and could not find one anywhere.  

 
The other night I decided to go shopping after work before coming home.  I found a beautiful pastel floral maxi dress for spring/summer which was already the greatest find ever!  It's hard these days to find a pretty pastel floral dress.  Have you noticed how for the past few years everything has been color blocked, bold bright colors and wild prints?  I can't stand it!  I want flowers please. 
 
I decided to run into just one more store before heading home and there was my mirror.  My mirror in the perfect distressed bronze color, sitting there for me to grab as fast as I could and think about the price later.  It was 40% off so great price too! 

 
Am I a happy girl?  Yes! I'm known for being very thrifty and persistent when shopping for just what I want and it seems to pay off a lot. 
Some of you may frown on this, but years ago a young lady told me she prayed before shopping.  She prayed that God would help her spend their hard earned money wisely and to help her find great deals.  I've done the same ever since.  I can't even remember the last time I have had buyer's remorse over anything big or small.   

 
Are you a great bargain hunter?  Are you usually successful in finding exactly what you want and not settling?

Eggs Eggs and More Eggs

Good morning everyone.  After a little break in laying eggs for us, those nice hens have started again.   

Can you smell that spring is on it's way?  Well we do honestly have a while before the temps will be warm everyday, but it's coming. 

 
I sure hope everyone has a wonderful day and weekend.

Birthday Son

Oh my.  Twenty years ago today we were blessed with the birth of our son.  What a wonderful blessing it's been. 

 
This kiddo has brought us more joy, happiness, love, and laughter than we could have ever imagined.  Of course we've also had some adventures, scares, and accidents.  What parent hasn't though?  It's been so worth it!
 
 
He wanted me to make him a cheesecake. 
 
He's so smart and talented.  Recently he learned the wood working method called Intarsia.  He has made a lot of beautiful pieces so far. 
 
 
I came home from work the other night and this beautiful raccoon was hanging on my living room wall.  I love it. 
 
Happy Birthday Matthew.  Your dad and I love you so much and we are so thankful to God for you son.
