Lately.........



And, here's what's been going on lately.............



I have replaced some of my fall decor with more of a Thanksgiving look.  I love these tall candlesticks and the lovely fall candle rings sitting atop.  These will serve as our Thanksgiving table scape. The candlesticks are plenty tall enough to remain in place during the meal.



I love turkey's and the one on top is one I've had a few years and the one on bottom is a new one.  I tried to talk myself out of buying him but he was just so pretty and he's really BIG.  He makes quite a statement sitting on the end of our bar.



Okay, I really stepped out of "my box" with this.  I rarely post any pictures of myself modeling/styling clothes.  It's sort of out of my comfort zone.  But, I just had to show you my camouflage jeggings.  I was shopping with my daughter when I saw these, tried them on and Bridget really liked them on me so I bought them.  For a gal that's a more classic style gal, this look was definitely out of "my box."  Andrea and Lisa, I know I should have had these pics taken outside but it was a rainy day and I ran to my husband's office and had one of the staff snap these real quick. ~just sayin'~ I'll try to do better next time. ~smile~



This past Friday was my Dad's 89th birthday. My brother and I hosted a party for him at the facility where he lives.  Several folks that have known him over the years dropped by to join in the celebration as well.  As you can see, he was really enjoying all the attention from the women.~chuckle~



My youngest brother and his wife came in from Iowa to help with the celebration and to spend the weekend with us.  Daddy had such a wonderful time and he will be recovering the remainder of the week from all the excitement of his birthday and the weekend. 

And I leave you with this...........
