Happy Mother's Day!

Wherever you find yourself this Mother's Day, I hope you have the sweetest one ever spent with your babies (no matter how old they are!).

And don't forget to take a little time for yourself...
listen to some soothing sounds...
light a candle...
take a bubble bath...


indulge...

totally revel in the fact that God blessed you with children and don't forget to thank Him for that honor...

However you spend your day, at the end of that day, cozy up under your covers for a good nights rest and drift off to sleep with a smile on your lips.

Sweet dreams, moms~~~

Weekend Jaunt...

This past weekend we took a little road trip to visit my parents. Soon after we arrived, we hopped back in the monster (what I call my hubby's big ole vehicle) and headed down the road to Crockett for a 90 mile long garage sale. Yes, you read that right. From Texas to Louisiana. No, we didn't travel the distance, we just shopped a small portion of it. After that we headed into town and visited a couple of antiques stores. Fun, fun, fun!
Just a few sites we saw...
No parking sign...!

Girls will be girls! Mom trying on vintage hats...

Straight ahead...sidewalk shopping!...

The front of an old bank building...

It was a great beginning to our weekend. We were tired, our feet hurt and we slept mighty good that night!

Thanks for sharing these memories with me!

Happy May!

Summer is fast approaching isn't it? It's warm and humid here where I live. The mosquitos are lovin' it!

I'm still trying to work the kinks out of this new computer config we have going here :-( but I thought I'd drop in & share a couple of tips straight from my Sweet Home to yours...

*we came up with an idea to solve the age old question "are the dishes in the dishwasher clean?" this way. When we have removed the clean dishes, we immediately fill the dispenser with soap so, if the dispenser lid is closed, we know they are dirty and just start loading them up from there.

*I started carrying antibacterial wipes in my purse a while back. They come in handy when we have left a garage sale or thrift store & have that "germy" feeling or walk in to a restaurant to have a bite to eat! (or anywhere else for that matter!) I just fill a sandwich size zipper bag with a few and pop them in my purse. Don't forget to refill when you have used the last one though! (How would I know to warn you about this? ;-/ ) I know I could buy small packets of them but that isn't always frugal. And I prefer to have a wipe over the gels that you can buy~it just feels cleaner to me. Like having a wash cloth
Do you have any tips you would like to share?
Have a great day y'all!
