Planning Mode

Everything is coming together
and the time is ticking down

someone very special to me
is coming for a visit
and arriving tomorrow night

I am a tad bit excited....


my cousin Gina is flying in and spending a week

I have written about her visits in the past
I call her my best girl
we are two peas in a pod
and I love her with all my heart

so when she comes to visit
I know that we will have a good time
whether we are curled up on the couch chatting
and drinking tea

or

dancing into the night with a cold one in our hands


this quote says it all

~*~*~*~*~*~

So this Saturday I have planned a little family gathering
and one of the things I found on Pinterest
and fell in love with ~ I made for the week-end

Rhi over at Hey Gorgeous
made them here for a bridal shower


picture and how to found here

**disclaimer here ~ use plain dixie cups to start
or when you turn them on you will be able to see the pattern
that was on the cup!  Yes ~ I learned that my friends from experience
epic fail.... 

I am going with summer ~ sunshine ~ flipflops
and blender drinks theme
and now I bow my head once again to pray for
sunshine


the long range looks good ~ yeehaw

I have 3 days off next week so some of our plans include

a road trip to Prince Edward Island
and hopefully we will find some goodies

an appointment is made for a pedicure


movie night!
I read this book last summer and cannot wait to see the movie

of course we will have some of these


another recipe found here

spending time with family & friends
eating seafood
and just having fun

chances are you will not see me around much over the
next week or so ~ but do not worry
I shall return!
