Fun Little Updates


Just wanted to share a few things that have been going on.
First...have you ever had a friend
that fits you like a glove?
Well my friend like that is Julie.
And she just had a birthday on June 27th.
We are SO much alike it's not even funny.
EXCEPT she does not like the color
What the???
But I overlook that because she is just amazing.  :o) 
And I'm making her supper on July 26th.
It will be a great night!
So, with all this said.
Heeeeerrrreeee's Julie! 
(Think of Ed introducing Johnny Carson)

I she just not as cute as cute can be??
Love you, Julie!

So we had the Smith reunion at our house last weekend.
It was a GREAT turnout, however,
I didn't get pictures of the people here.
Yep, I'm a dork.
But my sister-in-law did, so I'll have to figure out
how to get them off Facebook.
Here's a few of the decorations I did.
I'm so glad the guys let me 'chic out' the man shed a bit.
hee hee
FYI - the man shed is still a work in process.

And one of the center pieces.

 And the 4' x 8' food table
(which ended up being totally too small!)
But it was a GREAT day.
Wonderful company
Great food
Many, many blessings!

And here's just a random picture I took last night.
Jesse and I were watching the DVD
for season 2 of Dexter
(OMG this show is thrilling!!)
And I noticed the sunlight beaming in on the
hydrangea's that my good friend, Cyndi, grew for me.
I thought you might enjoy it.
(I LOVE dried hydrangea's like there's no tomorrow!)

And here's a view of what I planted this year and the end of our patio.

There's honeysuckle in the middle trellis and a clematis on each of the side trellis's.
The honeysuckle seems to be thriving.
So if the clematis decide they don't like it here,
I'll plant a couple more honeysuckle there next here.
Here's to honeysuckle!

Yarrow decided to randomly start growing by our wood pile.
I LOVE how this happened.
Mother Nature at her best.

And I'm sure you're wondering how pretty my lilies have opened up.
I mean,
what else do you have to think about?

I have to say that the wind has not been kind to them,
but I was able to capture a picture before they didn't look so well anymore.

So that's a little bit of stuff that's been happening at my place!
Hope you all have a great day!!

Oh my goodness I love your patio and that hydrangea picture is utterly gorgeous. It should be on a birthday card somewhere!

Have a great holiday weekend.

I enjoyed seeing a little of your life. Hydrangeas are one of my favorites too.
