Winding Down

Last night we went to BFF's daughter's high school graduation. I can remember like yesterday, seeing her as a tiny newborn all wide-eyed, staring up at you from her baby car seat. Time really flies by sometimes. Things are winding down here now. College Boy is home for the summer from college, Sweet Girl has her last full day of school today, and Little Man is on his summer break from pre-school. All is well with the world, except what are we going to do this summer?? I'm afraid if we don't have reservations for hotels at the keys or at Disney yet, those won't be happening. We'll see! In the meantime, check out this video. I have seen it before, but it gets me laughing SO hard I get tears in my eyes!

Mrs. G

OK peeps, I must have too much time on my hands, because how else could I have found the time to somehow find this woman's blog and start reading it? Anyways, she has the best sense of humor! I guess she mentions many things in my past and that is what draws me in...:

Read her Oprah post here:

And then, yes, I had to read something she linked to which was HER HAIR changes over the course of her lifetime. Pretty funny because I can relate! Does anyone remember the name of that family show with Willy and Buddy??

Let me know if you read any of this and what you think. She just cracks me up!

A Wonderful Giveaway

I just wanted to mention about a wonderful giveaway on Martha's website at Vintage Trifles. What a beautiful piece! It means so much, especially near Memorial Day. You can find her website here:

Update: Darn, I didn't win it! Maybe she will make more and put them in her etsy shop to buy at a later date! :-)

The College Boy

Last week was a big day for the College boy. He turned 19 and got his wisdom teeth taken out within days of each other. He is still recovering, but is doing better than I thought, which is good. We were blessed to have his girlfriend come over and spend some time with him the day of his surgery. Here is a clip from YouTube of him playing his trumpet in a jazz concert at FSU.

I've been busy with the kids - Little Man graduated from his Wee Three school, and Sweet Girl has a recital coming up in a few weeks so we have LOTS of practices to squeeze in. On Memorial Day we will all be going to Orlando. My dear friend Kelli is having a big bash at her house, celebrating her newly adopted son's second birthday. I can't wait to see her and the kids! Lots to do, so little time. On a crafting note, I've been working on some gift cards with vintage pattern images. Lots of fun to make!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mom's out there. I wish my mother and mother-in-law were still here with us. I miss them both so. But life goes on, and hopefully I have learned what they taught me through the years so I can pass it on to my children. Yesterday was a big day. My friend Annette came over and we wheeled and dealed in the sweltering heat, selling our treasures until 1:00 and called it a day. We did pretty good I think! It was hard to part with some things. The tons of Beanie Babies that I got the kids which they have now outgrown, the Calvin Klein dress I have held onto for years to see if I could get back into it, the Scrapbooking idea books that are way outdated but have special layouts in them from favorite scrapbookers...but I have WAY too much stuff and need to lighten the load. All in all, a very good day!
