I'm a Proud Mama

I just have to toot Rachael's horn a little bit since she doesn't do it herself very often.  Her performance is from this summer when she was in Vermont.  Check her out  here for a scene from Carmen.

Howliday Thursday

Here we are again and another Thursday of fun.  I found some Halloween treats that you might like.  I think I'll make a batch of Oreo mummies.

Zulily is Awesome!!!

I found this great site for kids clothes called Zulily.  I may have ordered a few things for Beansie's birthday.  They have killer sales and add new merchandise everyday.  Most things are at least 50% off.  The pretty things below are just a sample of what's on sale today.  I didn't order any of these, so they are still up for grabs.

Christmas Polka Dots $27.99

Miss Thang would look like an angel in this.  $22.99

Eiffel Tower  $22.99

For Halloween??  $17.99

Organic Floral Dress  $15.99

Organic Orange Hippie Hearts  $15.99

I Love to Find a New Blog

I found a great new site called Ill Seen, Ill Said run by Jane out of Toronto.  She has the best feature called Three of a Kind.  I love how she matches up her trios.  The colors and patterns are divine.  She also has an online shop. All pictures below are from her blog.  Enjoy!

Sundays at the Spa

The next few Sundays are going to be fabulous.  I signed up for a six week meditation course at Boyne Mountain's Solace Spa.  It also gets me a day pass for the spa every Sunday.  There is a restorative yoga class right before the meditation class.  A friend and I spent 4 hours at the spa this past Sunday.  After our classes, we suited up and lounged in the whirlpool, sauna and steam room.  I could get used to this!!!

TGIF

I had a very busy week of meetings and such.  I'm snuggled up on the couch and looking forward to a good night's sleep.  I have projects tomorrow and my new meditation class at the spa at Boyne Mountain on Sunday.  How is your weekend shaping up?

Hey, Amber why didn't we think of this?  I love the colorful paint behind the star burst clock.

Holiday Thursday

Ooooh, I love Holiday Thursday already.  I found so many vintage Halloween decorations and cards.  There is something about these that are quaint and innocent.  It reminds me of when I was a kid.  We used to take our pillowcases and trick or treat on our own.  I remember when I was in fourth grade and my best friend and I roamed the subdivisions and traveled at least a couple of miles from home.  Everyone did it.  It was a different era where kids were let loose in the world.  There were so many of us boomers that we traveled  in huge packs.  Safety in numbers I guess.

Women Can, Women Do!

I took the afternoon off and went to the annual Women Can, Women Do luncheon put on by the Woman's Resource Center at Bay Harbor this afternoon.  There were over 400 women and 43 tables.  Each one decorated by area businesses.  They were unbelievable.  This was the year that they decorated chairs as well as the tables.  So much fun!



 Ohh look it's Maryanne M. and Sharon W.  Don't you love the roses?

First Day of School Pics

Here is a couple of shots of M's first day of fourth grade.  I can't believe he is so tall and grown up.  How can he be getting older faster that his grandma.  It's a miracle!


Okay, nobody is sure what Miss Thang is doing here except not looking at the camera.


Here is the little girl all clean and ready for bed.  Bear?  What bear?

Stairways to Heaven

Look at all these very cool stairways.  I love clever storage ideas.  And who wouldn't want stairs with a slide?  Enjoy!
