Happy Sunday~

Another weekend gone, why must
they go so fast?

We have had had a nice
weekend here at home.
Trying to get some things done around here.

It's hot here, I don't know about you, but
here it's hot! The kind of hot
that makes you just go "uhhgg"
when you walk out the door. The kind of
hot, when you are outside
all you hear is the hum of the air conditioners
running throughout the neighborhood.

Sounds like it's sticking around for a while,
which is no surprise.  Our county fair
starts on Wednesday, it's usually unbearable
for the fair.  I am anxious for the fair,
my niece is riding horses, I am going
to make a point to slip away from work to see her!

I have been working on the mudroom area again.

I took down my Fourth of July decor and working on
some new decor.

I love the look of all the beach decor that
I am seeing this summer.

And if you follow me on pinterest, you
may have noticed I have a new board
for my new love of beach decor.

Here are a few peeks of what is going on
in the mudroom right now. :)

I hope to have it finished soon. It always
takes me a while, I tweek it and have to
re tweek it till I get the
look I want.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and stay cool.
I am going to end this post with some pretty
roses, a sleepy puppy and a new pillow.

delish desserts and Papa turns 80~

Hope you had a wonderful weekend

and Happy Sunday!

This weekend we have been celebrating
my Father in Law's 80th

We had a party for him Saturday night
with lots of family and food.

This is him. :) He is such a
sweet man; I love him! ;)

All the grandkids call him
Papa;  he is such a good Papa. :)

So, today; which is his actual birthday, we, meaning the kids,
spouses and grandkids all got together
at the in laws house for more food!

My one Sister in Law made these
wonderful bars; oh my goodness these are yummy bars!

to make, you have to try these!

I had my fair share, so much though, I
went on 2 walks today! :) Hopefully
I worked them off! :)

Take care!

I am far I have not gotten very far.
I don't know why I thought I had time to read
this summer!

So tiny, but yet so good. Of course we
had to hit DQ on the 4th of July.

Always in front of my stove when I am making supper.
I guess it's her way of helping?

Smores on 4th of July....of course!

one of my favorite chairs in the house
this has been passed down our family 3

This one wasn't an instagram pic, but it's so
cute I have to share. When ever I sit down
to eat a meal. Bailey lays under my chair
and usually falls asleep. 

Hope you all have a great weekend. I have been so messed up
with my days since the 4th was in the middle of the
week! So glad it's Friday! :)
