lucky girl...

Happy Friday! It has been a long, busy week for me...the princess came home with all her "stuff". I think it all multiplied since she left with it in September!! It has all been somewhat organized and packed away until August ~ all in totes and plastic drawers ~ right outside my room. I do not think I will like looking at that all summer. Thank goodness I will be away alot. I have also been preparing for company tomorrow to celebrate my son's Confirmation ~ mostly cleaning as I am keeping appetizers simple and ordering pizza. I did not have anything planned to post today until I popped in over at Sandi's ~ drum roll please ~ I won her giveaway!!! Look at these beautiful french inspired garden markers...

Am I a lucky girl or what?! I call Sandi my fairy blog mother ~ she was there on day 1 of my blogging adventure to help me through a few behind the scene elements of my first post and always has time to help me when I need it. So, thank you Sandi for your friendship and for these little beauties!!


I actually took a few photos yesterday of the pretty flowers I bought for the party tomorrow...

I gathered a few other pitchers and will use them to hold forks, knives and spoons... I put a picture of Jake from his Christening and his First Communion into this old frame... It was so hot the day of his Christening and I put him in a little satin suit... My pride and joy...where does the time go...wasn't this just yesterday?! Um...please pay no attention to my hideous decor ~ what was I thinking!! Now for his First Communion (again keep your eyes focused on Jake)... So sweet!! The fireplace, not so much! If you take a peek here you can see what my fireplace looks like today ~ please!! I will take some pictures tomorrow of Jake and share them with you next week. For now I will share this one from our trip to Walt Disney World last year... I have had so many new visitors to my blog this week ~ it was nice meeting all of you. Thank you for stopping by today and enjoy your weekend!! This lucky girl will!

You are probably right this moment having a fun time at your party. My grand-daughter is being christened tomorrow. She lives too far way for us to go but lots of photos are forth coming. xoxo Lynn
