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? 

The GRAND FINALE! GRADUATION CEREMONY JUNE 1, 2013


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!

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.

My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes.









Spode China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew?


Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings.




You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?



Are you ready for the Thanksgiving Holiday? Thanks for stopping by, Lory

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started!


These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath.


If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila! I used a pipe cleaner/chenille stem to att…

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well.(mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both parties…
