Party and a Find!

The girls went to Harper's birthday party on Saturday. They had a wonderful time! The adults had a wonderful time visiting!






Thank you again for your help with my kitchen table. You have been so helpful to me! "Em," thank you so much for being honest about your disappointment in the finish. That was a big red flag.

I bought a table today!
Spur of the moment stop on my way to a hair appointment.
Antique shop.
Walked in the door and I saw "the one."
I have NO chairs to go with it, but it was a deal!!!! I could not pass it up!
Could not strap it to the top of my car......Haha!
Have a friend that is going to pick it up in the next couple of days!
Now....for the chairs.............................

Just thought I'd let you know that we got my aunts table when we were married, my dad re finished it but all the chairs that went to it had broken over the years. We found chairs at World Market and have had them for five years now. They are strong and sturdy. They have held up really well. I love them. They also have benches there. I recommend looking there to see if they might have anything you like.

I am so glad you were able to find the perfect one for you! I removed a post I followed up with saying I loved the chairs and they held up well until I remembered that all of the backs broke (the lightweight criss cross part) very easily...but the rest of the chair itself is fabulous and I love how well we 'fit' in the chairs. Maybe I just had bad luck with my table being so easily prone to bubbling, but I thought a kitchen table should be able to withstand a teenager eating cereal, dripping small drops of milk, and walking away (to leave mom to wipe it a few hours later) and not bubble!

Can't wait to see pics! :)

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chu

Complicated

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
