It all happened in May

Hi all, I am back from a very hectic May. I was a very busy bee last month, and I still haven't fully recuperated. There were so many things that happened in May. Let's see, we started the month out with Girl's Day Out, which was May 4th. My friend Mandy Lou's Birthday was the day before so we turned it into a girl's day out/ birthday celebration.We started the day out thrifting, but that went bust in a hurry, we didn't find anything. Next, we headed over to Ruby Tuesday's for lunch, and boy was it yummy! Finally, the last stop of the day LegoLand Florida.

It's truly amazing what can be done with Lego's.

Did you know that it takes 570 gallons of paint to cover the White house? I didn't

We had a great time at LegoLand sitting, chatting and enjoying the beautiful weather.

May 12th  Mother's Day. I did absolutely nothing, I received several phone calls from friends and family. My son gave me the cutest little card. It made my day! The card reads Are you the Best MOM ever. The inside reads,  I'll bet my blanket on it! sweet, sweet, sweet!

May 20th my birthday, I took the day off from work and got caught up on a few things around the house. Hubby and son showered me with costume jewelry, my favorite! and more wonderful cards.

May 29th was my Mom's 75th Birthday, and Baccalaureate was held on the same night at 6:00 p.m. My youngest is graduating from High School this year.

Me, my sister and G waiting for the awards ceremony to begin.

May 30th Family came in for graduation ceremonies, plus  Academic Awards Night, tonight. My son graduated with honors and will be headed off to college in the fall. The next day my Daughter and her family arrived. They are all camera hogs, so family pics were of top priority. ha! ha! ha!

Wow what a good looking family? Look at Zsa Zsa's Girl, isn't she absolutely adorable? 


That handsome young man is OUR SON! Did I mention he graduated with honors?

The Auditorium was packed.

There he is again receiving his Diploma! I was shouting from the stands, "That's my boy", "That's my boy". After the ceremony we headed to Steak and Shake to grab a bite to eat.

Me, my sister and the graduate. We are so excited for G.

Wow, what a month to remember!


  1. Such a busy month for you and your family. Congrats to your son! Happy Belated birthday to you. Your granddaughter is the cutest.

  2. Thanks Brandi, I still haven't fully recovered. May was a very hectic month, but if it was filled with love, laughter, family, food and a whole lot of fun! Have a Great week.

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.

My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!

Chat soon...
