Turning 18

Dinner at The Grove, followed by Lady Gaga night at South Beach. Fabulous perfection.
Happy birthday Hunter, we love you!

Friendly neighborhood Kroger floral

So last Thursday I was down the street at Kroger getting some groceries and I noticed a bouquet of Limonium in the floral area. I just love these soft little filler flowers, so I asked the grocery staff member if I could place an order. She said yes. And I quickly rattled off a list of flowers that they generally stock. Presto, wedding floral planning was complete in less than 5 minutes.

I'll be picking up a couple of bunches of roses on Monday so they will have plenty of time to open by the end of the week. I prefer rose blossoms to be mature, just to the point of fading, rather than too youthful. And I'll get the remaining flowers on Friday and have fun assembling bouquets of all sizes and augmenting them with natural clippings from the landscape.

I'm thinking a pretty crape myrtle spray on the front door will be just the thing!

Sweet touches for a wedding

Candle lanterns indoors and out.

A homemade ornament from old buttons for a doorknob.

And miles of garland.

Scenes from the prom

It's just been a few weeks since high school prom. And on the afternoon of our nephew's prom night, his mom sent me a few phone-pics. My phone is not one of those smart-handy-dandy gadgets that can perform miracles with the sweep of your little finger. The picture window is so small I couldn't see, so I had to go to the computer a couple of days later to sign into the Sprint website and actually look at a larger version of the picture.

Hunter looked handsome.

But there was another sweet face lurking there in the background. She so wanted to go. Sweet thing.

Scenes from the weekend

Last weekend, actually. Marlow has officially emerged from hibernation and spends nearly all his time lazing about the yard. In true kitty fashion.
