Awesome time with BFF

Saturday, May 26, 2012

Had a wonderful day with BFF. We went all around town into little shops...just having fun. Enjoyed myself. Hubby and BFF's hubby met up with us for dinner. Then BFF and I took off with "baby" and spent a couple hours touring the countryside. We had a blast. She makes me laugh just to look at her.

Taking off for an adventure tomorrow. Looking forward to time together.

Off to get some rest in preparation for tomorrow.

Awesome weather!

    Nice the weather co-operated with you and that Baby provided you with a good tour. I have a BBF but we haven't gotten together in years---just talk on phone. If I had a bucket list a day together eating, laughing and walking down memory lane with her would be a wish.

Fabulous Friday

Friday, May 25, 2012

On the countdown for the busy weekend....Downstairs off my list...tonight upstairs and hall bathroom. Going to do some baking tonight and put together a new receipe for breakfast casserole. Friends should get in around midnight or so.

Going to Mom's for lunch as her retirement complex is having a Memorial Day luncheon and hubby and I are going with her so she will go. We keep going to events when we know about them to encourage her to go to the extra events there. Sometimes it gets her going to them. Since you have to sign up for them she usually won't go but if we ask to go with her...she will go. Won't be spending much time with her this weekend so it will be a nice event for her.

Finding little moths in the house and they are driving me crazy. Been trying to find where they are coming from. No old cereal and have been going through boxed foods to see if there are any old ones I need to get rid of...ugh!

Gonna be an awesome weekend. BFF's always make me laugh and help me blow off steam. Boss gave me tickets to PGA practise for the big guys Monday...so hubby and our friend are going to go to watch them on Monday...that means we get to have a girls day....oh what to do what to do....I know we'll come up with something. Marc will go with hubby to parade Saturday....so another girls time....awesome!

Off to make it a great day!

    Happy Memorial Day weekend and thanks for coming to my blog.

Moths in the house, I have had before and had to put moth balls in my main closet.

That breakfast casserole sounds wonderful. Because I don't have an oven I do one in the CrockPot. I love a good hearty stick to the rib food for guests.

Have fun this weekend, and thanks for taking such good care of your Mom. We only get one.

Got a good night's rest

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Got our flowers planted and mulched two flower beds last night. Still have a lot more to go but that's all we're doing before company comes this weekend! Had a good night's sleep! The night before had a lousy night's sleep and felt really tired all day. Not sure how I would do working in the yard last night...felt worn out before I started but really felt better afterwards. Only worked about 2 hours so we didn't kill ourselves.

I have volunteer petunias growing up in two areas...some had grown quite large...so scouped them into pots and hopefully they will take off and make a couple of nice pots of petunias. Came in and made dinner and didn't get too much housework done. Will have to get on that tonight. Got the bedding washed and put on yesterday morning...so that's done.

Son may be able to hook us up with fun car for our friends to drive this weekend. Starting to get my focus on fun with our BFFs. We enjoy our times with them. Helps to blow off some steam.

Off to make it a great day!

Wow! So much for life slowing down!

Crazy week ahead and more craziness! Helping to plan for bridal shower for dear friends. God has truly blessed me with treasured friends. They treated me to dinner and dessert last night as we planned for bridal shower for one of my dear friends. We have been friends together since our children were little. Gradually we all three have gone to work full time. One of them is a nurse and we supported her as she went back to school, the other one works with children in the school system and I work in the insurance field. Different paths but we still get together once in awhile. Now another baby is getting married and we are planning a bridal shower when she comes home for a visit. We don't get together often but a couple of times a year. We are all busy ladies but we love the Lord and he keeps bringing us back together. Our lives have taken such different turns over the years and none of us are where we ever dreamed we would be....Treasured friendships! How precious they are.

Getting hair done tonight. Still have the flowers to plant....and NOW...our Best Friends are going to come out this weekend. I know best friends love you the way you are right????My house is a mess...how to get it put together before they get here. Still have to plant my flowers and now hubby wants to get in some mulch to put around the flowers after we plant them....I have Wednesday night to do it. I know it will get done. Been missing our best friends and we were just with them in February. She makes me laugh and I love to spend time with them.

Hubby had phone interview with new company building in our town. They said they would probably get back and let him know if he would be going further in the interview process this week. That would be a great answer to prayer if he could get a job so close to home..yet I'm ready for him to get back into the workforce however. I think the burden of supporting the family is wearing on me.

Got in a lunch time walk. Didn't see any deer while walking and as I was driving out of the nature center...saw movement and there was a deer standing in the middle of the field watching and grazing. The frogs were going nuts in the pond while I walk around it. Croak, Croak, Croak...the ducks were swimming around. It was a neat site. Fills my heart with joy to be out in nature and see some of God's creation.

Off to make it a great day!

    I think it is wonderful that you take the time to enjoy nature. So many don't. As for the busyness happening in your life right now it's wonderful that you remain so active. True friends aren't going to give a rat's.... about how your house looks, they are there to spend time with you, not your house.. lol..

I'll be praying for hubby to get that job...

Have a wonderful day ~ Hugs.. Donna

    I see all those things too, on my walks. I feel blessed that God and the deer consider me worthy to see them.

    Sweet, lady, this is unbelievable! It was filled with news and excitement.

Two important things on my list would just be enjoying friends that are tried and true and getting out in God's good nature this season.

Glad, so glad, you have the time to blog!

    Holy Moley. I am just now getting the gist of what an active exerciser you are. May God continue to give you strength to accomplish these things I never did!
