Monday Morning Stuff!!

Good Monday Morning!! I know I am entirely too chipper for a Monday but this is my favorite time of year and it's almost the 4th of July, which I love. I know my good Texas buddies Kari and Donna are dreaming of Autumn and Christmas but I LOVE the summer, which is why I changed my blog to this summer time theme. What do you think? Does it have an endless Summer look? LOL Okay before I forget, run over to Kari's and enter her giveaway for her one year blogoversary. Below is a photo of the great gifts she is giving away. Kari was one of the first people I met in blogland and I so wish we lived closer because I just know we would have a good time or get in alot of trouble. LOL So run over there now and enter. Another wonderful blogger who has been so sweet and nice is Kat. This wonderful lady is always there with a kind word and is ready to help without even being asked. She is having some tests done in the next couple of days and I just know she would appreciate your encouraging comments and prayers. Go here to visit her.
Also wanted to share about the grandbabies photo session before I go. Well, let's just say it went. LOL Between the many dirty diapers and the spitting up of a fountain(by Cameron) it was an experience. Maddie wanted nothing to do with the photo shoot. She was willing to take whichever toy the photographer offered her and then run away and laugh and she was quite worried about baby ya ya(that's what she calls Sydney, we don't know why). So Sydney and Cameron were champs, poor Cameron he has that acid reflux so bad and when he spits up, it really is like a fountain but that little guy is so happy. But we did manage a few shots and as soon as they send me the email proofs I'll see if I can upload them.
I am on my way to see my OB/GYN for my yearly check up today. I want to do this as much as I want a root canal. LOL But it is important and I go and tell him all about my menopause fun and he tells me the same thing. Basically he doesn't know how long this will last, blah, blah, blah. I want it to be gone, now. LOL Anyway have a great Monday! Below is a photo of Kari's great giveaway!

I love your summertime banner Joannie...and look at those books, what are you and Jeanne trying to do to me? I have to water the garden and blog, I don't have time to lay around reading....darn it...hey, try peppermint for Cam's tummy's what the pediatrician advised with Michael...worked wonders...a 1/4 tsp of peppermint in sterile sugar water

Sally said...

It's mighty beachy in here! I love it!! Very pretty!

Good luck at the doc's. I feel for you with all that which is behind me now, thank goodness. hahaha

Can't wait to see the pictures - I know they'll be adorable!

Thank you for mentioning my giveaway, Joan! I'm entering you twice, just because you're so darn nice (now I wish I'd put something pink in

Can't wait to see those proofs -I know they're going to be great.

As I told you before, your new blog look is very summery and nice and happy - I'm STILL yearning for autumn, but looking at this, at least summer doesn't seem quite so bad. LOL And I wish we lived closer, too. Just imagine the write-up in the paper when Johnny Bench has us arrested for stalking. :) (And he'd almost have to because I wouldn't leave him alone until I got lots of pictures and an autographed copy of everything I could find.)ha!

I'm thinking of Kat extra hard over these next few days, too. I hope it all goes well and she gets nothing but GREAT news. Bless her heart, I know she's scared. Who wouldn't be?

Oh and hey, you enjoy that visit to your doctor, now 'ya hear? There's nothing like throwing all your dignity out the window for that once a year bonding session with humilation. Good times, eh?

Jeanne said...

I'm with Kari and DOnna on waiting for fall but I gotta tell you your header is heaven to me. Love the ocean and that's where I want to be no matter the season. I just noticed your a Lost fan. Me too! What a season we had with some answers but more questions and too long to wait.

The sun, sand, surf, and those wonderfully colorful beach chairs just scream summer to me. I love summer too.
