Miscellany Monday

Oh, my, April 1st and I think that means, April Fool's Day. But, let me assure you that my post is not fooling, it's the truth, the whole truth. ~wink~ Thanks to Carissa, no matter what's going on in her world, she always shows up for us, April Fool's Day and all.  We love you Carissa!
Formidible Women Outing.........
Last week The Formidible Women loaded up for yet another "birthday outing."  This trip took us to Jackson, MS  As you can tell from the photos, it was a rather chilly day and we were bundled up in jackets and scarves.  As always, a lot of fun was had by all, a little retail therapy, some good eats and a whole lot of thankfulness for our friendship.
Dying Eggs........
DIL invited me over to watch her and the Princess dye Easter eggs.  Oh, my, has dying eggs come a long way.  DIL saw something on Pinterest about mixing food coloring in shaving cream and dipping eggs in it and leaving it on them for a few minutes and you get this neat marbled look.  Hanna Beth was very hesitant about getting her hands down in the mixture, she isn't too fond of having dirty hands. ~how cute!~  
 
The Happy Couple.......
 This past weekend we attended a wedding reception for a precious young couple.  We have known the young man since he was born and from all reports he picked a "real jewel" for his wife. They were married at one of the Antebellum homes in South Louisiana the previous weekend in a small ceremony and then we all got to celebrate with them at the reception this weekend.  It was another lovely Southern affair. Are they not the cutest! ~smile~

An indoor hunt.........
Mother Nature caused us to have to change our egg hunt to the inside on Sat.  I was not happy about it, but there was not a thing that could be done.  So, I went about hiding eggs inside the house before the Princess and her parents arrived.  I'm not sure she could have had any more fun outside.  She was so excited about each egg and could hardly wait to open them up and see what prizes the bunny had left in each one.  It ended up being a fun time in spite of the weather.  You know, sometimes you just have to make lemonade out of lemons. ~grin~ 
 
Amazing........
 Can you believe this is the same man that walked right up to death almost two years ago?  I can't.  For the past couple of months he has done extremely well and we are so thankful. He is truly a miracle.  This picture was taken Saturday while he was over enjoying our Easter celebration with us.  Yes, God is good! 

Happy April!

  1. I never liked dying Easter eggs because I hate the smell of vinegar! When plastic eggs came out, I thought they were the best thing since sliced bread!

    What a beautiful gathering of friends! I haven't done that in way too long and it may spur me on to getting a group together....so thanks!

    Lovely wedding.....I went to one this past weekend too

  2. As a kid, i enjoyed indoor hunts more because there were more things to hide eggs in, under, behind, on top of. Not weather related either. Bet being with your granddaughter was the highlight! Your dad looks wonderful. Miraculous recovery!

  3. You formidable women look amazing as usual if not formidable! You gals could have a good time in a McDonalds, but isn't it fun to take your good times on the road? The young couple look so happy and I think he did find a beauty. Happy April to you too.
