Marvelous Monday!

These marvelous Mondays generally come after working weekends - because I have a couple of days to relax. After the scare of bad weather on Friday, we've had a beautiful and cool last couple of days. I'm hoping it will warm up a little today so I can spend a little time by the pool - I am in desperate need of a little sun (or a spray tan if that's all I can get). ha

R and I grilled out some delicious turkey burgers on Saturday night. I have to admit that I've always been a little weirded out by turkey burgers at restaurants, etc, but we decided to give it a shot and I loved the result. I highly recommend them! It was a lovely evening after work, and we got to sit out on the deck and relax and then have movie night. I do love movie night - and I appreciate that I get off work early enough on Saturdays to still enjoy the weekend a little.

Yesterday at church was palm Sunday (a perk of my job is that we don't open until noon on Sundays). It is a really cool service - and I always love Easter so I am looking forward to next weekend. That may also have something to do with the fact that it isn't my weekend to work. Here are a few of my Easter things around the house!

I love a good holiday - and a chance to decorate the house! Well, I'm off to do the Monday laundry and have lunch with a friend. I hope you all have a marvelous Monday as well!

Thankful Thursday

I'm back! We've had a pretty busy past week but we enjoyed every moment. We spent the past weekend in Mississippi celebrating R's and his grandmother's birthday. We surprised Grandmama Saturday with a birthday lunch and were able to keep it a secret that we were all in town until we showed up at her house. We had a great time celebrating the birthdays and relaxing outside and playing with the kids. I also got to play "dress-up" in a bunch of dresses that belonged to R's grandmother and great-grandmother. Amazingly, they almost all fit so I now have a closet full of "true vintage" clothing! It was a blast. Here are a couple of pictures from the weekend...

Now for Thankful Thursday

- The many blessings we have been given
- Our wonderful families and the chance to spend time with them
- Our wonderful friends
- Finding a new "fun" place to each in Troy, thanks to Leslie -a shout out to Old Enzor Lane and their chocolate crepes
- Green - I was getting tired of the drab winter browns in the yard
- Once again, my arsenal of Allegra and Flonase
- Gidget -and her ability to get along with all other puppies in the family (including R's parents dogs Riley and Sadie)
- Almost 1 full year of marriage to the best husband ever! (only 1 month and 1 day short of the year mark)
- Time with my sister this week
- My kindle - it allows me to read and read and read and never run out of books!

There are, of course, many more but I'm off to bake for work birthdays and it's friendship bread time!

Happy Birthday R!

I have a precious little friend, E, staying with me today while her Momma works so I decided to take advantage of nap time to do a little blogging!

I hope every survived last night's stormy weather! Our yard looks like a tree warzone but no damage, and every one is safe and sound. Seriously, though, that was the most amazing/ridiculous lightning I have ever seen. The storm even kept R up past his regularly scheduled bedtime. :)
Speaking of the birthday boy, R has the big 2-7 coming up tomorrow, and thanks to crazy work schuedules we are going to be celebrating a little early! Here is my creation for his birthday celebration!

R likes his cake :)

I kinda love this guy, so I found it necessary to celebrate him:)
My cake may not win any competitions but I had fun doing it!

I hope everyone has a happy Tuesday - I'm very thankful for the sunshine today after last night's storm!
