This Is Not Your Average Weekend!

imageIt has been a long time coming…but the time is finally here!

“This Is Not Your Average Weekend!”

My wonderful hubby and I are escaping the everyday-humdrum-up-before-the-butt crack-of-dawn-run-of-the-mill…”Well you get my meaning!” We will be going to a beautiful winery/spa called the Chateau Elan, for the weekend, to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary!  “And they said it wouldn’t last!”

Needless to say we are a tad excited!  So before I head off to finalize my packing I wanted to stop and take a moment to reflect!

Being married is a job!  It is a job I love even though I don’t get paid overtime!  I do love the perks…

A hubby who works to provide our family with the things we need.

A hubby who has a unique sense of humor that is completely different from mine.

A hubby who has fun singing…and no it doesn’t sound better in the shower!

A hubby who has been a steady rock when I have not been!

A hubby who loves me even when my face is blue?..”I had a cleansing mask on last night!”

 

I could go on but, like I said a few minutes ago, I need to go pack!  I would like to say a special THANK YOU to some sweet friends who are letting our youngest stay with them this weekend.  (You know who you are…). Without you we may not have been able to enjoy our weekend!

I will post pictures later…until then,

“May your cup runneth over with with joy, love and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: Roller-coaster Day!

Yesterday was my first day, since being in our new home, with no installs or repairs scheduled. Where to start? My bedroom…time to sort through those boxes and put things where they belonged. The task was clicking along with occasional texts with friends thrown into the chore. I reached a stopping point and sat for a moment. A friend texted me with two simple words…”Call Me!” I did as I was asked and called…she answered in a tone no one likes to hear. The news was sudden but expected. A friend of ours and member of our church had been suffering with Pancreatic Cancer and went home yesterday…to heaven! After a few stunned moments and quiet conversation the call ended and I began the notification of those who would want to know. A little while later I was contacted to get the meal organized…via e-mail…for the family after the funeral. All I was really thinking was how I was going to deliver this news to my youngest son…the thought of losing a friend and youth director had already hit him hard and this….this would shake him to the core.

SKIP TO LAST NIGHT…

Hubby calls that he is on his way home…30 minutes early. I told him dinner was in the oven and would be ready in about 10 minutes. He told me he had the tile-cutter he had loaned to a friend and would need some help getting out of the car. I watched as he pulled down the street and opened the garage door. Then being the good wife, that I am, I sent the youngest out to help! A blink of an eye later my youngest steps back into the garage and says “Daddy needs your help!” I walk through the garage and out to the truck…open the front door and hear…”it’s in the back”. I open the back door and do not see a tile-cutter…

My son is home for Veteran’s Day! He had traveled from his Army Base yesterday morning and hubby had secretly picked him up at the airport yesterday afternoon. He had been in town most of the day!
I closed the door and looked at my hubby…I opened the door and my son stepped out…I grabbed my son and held on tight!

“Yes I cried…again!” I told you it was a Roller-coaster Day!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Remember the reason for Veteran’s Day and thank them for their service!

Peach State says: Oh The Places We Can Go!

IMG_5933-0.JPG

The time has come to begin our downsizing! With the three older sons out and about…hubby has decided now is the time to buy another home!

“Oh The Places We Can Go!”

Trying to meld all of our wants and desires into one home has been an event-planners-nightmare BUT…I MAY HAVE ACTUALLY FOUND ONE TODAY!
The one pictured above is not it…seeings how a model is only available.

This will be an adventure for the both of us as this home will be built to our specsifications. “OOO…maybe I can get a screened porch!” Master on the main is a must as well as fireplace. Room for visiting children ( VISITING) and/ or entertaining is a must! They have plans including a basement that run a bit more than hubby wants but he may change his mind!

All in all a great day! Walking around empty1newly-constructed homes, with a dear friend playing body guard, was a lot of fun!

Back to reality:Now it is time to get ready for the youngest to get home from school and rush off to his doctor appointment. After that…maybe a trio to Walmar-Che’. [translation: southern term for Walmart]

I will keep you posted about the house hunting!

I better have time to swing by Starbucks on the way to the doctor.

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: Crafty Girl’s Night Out!

20140310-080632.jpg

The Pintrest call went out to the ladies by email.

“Look what we found! Why don’t we get together and do this and have a Crafty Girl’s Night Out!

So we were reminded and were encouraged to buy the supplies and RSVP!
Stencils and paint provided! I bought a glue gun along with the Burlap and headed over to the host house. Newspaper lined tables were set up in two rooms along with bowls of brown paint and sponge brushes. Yarn was in individual little balls ready to made into Pom-poms.

Here is the result!!!

We had a good time of crafts and fellowship! Plans are already in the works for the next project!

Peach State says: After My Week I Deserve Some Facebook Funnies!

20140301-071130.jpg

It has been a week of non-stop-chaotic-running-with-a-dash-of-beat-the-clock type of activity. Something everyday! I was so focused on the things that had to be done I forgot what day it was until my youngest got home yesterday! But that’s another story…After My Week I Deserve Some Facebook Funnies!

How about a couple of Straight-Jacket Award contenders:

20140301-071722.jpg
That was a close call…for a second I thought she was asking which method he preferred!

20140301-072014.jpg
This makes perfect sense! Winner!!!

A new award presentation calledShould Have Known Better:

20140301-072228.jpg

A favorite of mine this week has become a mantra of sorts with another friend…I will share if you promise to laugh!

20140301-072500.jpgThank You Mrs. Lecter!

I am missing something..fluffy and filled with love….

20140301-072750.jpg
That’s not what I meant…sounds like my friends are having the same type of week.

Trying again…

20140301-073026.jpg
Okay…so the fluffy concept did not work!

How about cleaning the house…

20140301-073130.jpg
See…a nice Fuzzy Feeling…(“Could you pass the Kleenex?”)

20140301-073428.jpg
Ah…the smell of a clean house!

20140301-073512.jpg
And I still am cleaning up after all these years!

Time to just relax at home…

20140301-073649.jpg
“Honey the Balloon Animals are out again!”

20140301-073801.jpg
Uh oh…maybe he should reconsider relaxing at home!

Well I have saved the Blog Worthy Award Winners for this next section…Can you guess the theme?

20140301-073958.jpg
(Just thinking out loud…I think I will have to make one of these for several members of my family!)

20140301-074444.jpg
Yep…this is me…is there a cure? MORE COFFEE!
