Today would be my Dads 59th birthday. I miss him so much and wish he were here even sick. That sounds so selfish and is I just want him back. I know I will see him again one day because I have FAITH that I will. It is just so hard letting go. I struggle with this daily. I thought it would be getting better by know but it isn't. I don't know when it will ease but for now it isn't its just as strong as the day we let go of him, April 25, 08.
We are spending the weekend at his house with Grammy because her birthday is on Sunday the 17th. It is so hard to be happy and celebrate hers when I miss him so much, but I am going to give it my best.
Have a great weekend.

Oh I have a new toy and I am so addicted to it. I had the pearl but just couldn't get that key pad straight it was so small but the Curve is awesome. I have always told Mikee I didn't need to get my e-mails on my phone but now that I can I LOVE IT.

Have you tried this stuff. I have only had the Sweet Tea Firefly and LOVE IT. It is from South Carolina. I don't like many mixed drinks and I don't like beer I do like wine from time to time but let me tell you this stuff is the best! Just add a little lemonade to it and its like a glass of sweet tea. You would really have to watch how much of it you have, I think before you would know it you would be flat on your face with this stuff. It would sneak up on you for sure. I have it on my list to get for my girls weekend coming up in a few weeks. Watch out Isle Of Palms here comes the girls with the Firefly.


Oh my, some girlfriends and I went to see this tonight and it was great. It is not for young people and has very bad language in it but is still very funny. I just love Will Ferrell he is one of my favorites.

A little more beach is what we need so we are heading out today and will be back when we get back. We only have a little more summer left so I figure we better enjoy it while we can. I hope you are enjoying yours.

I love to watch movies late at night when Mikee is away and Brady is in the bed its what I do to speed through the night. I watched this one last night and it was so good. I had never heard of it before so wasn't sure if it would be a let down or not. I also rented a few more so I will let you know about those. We have a reception tonight at the Fine Art Center to see the work the kids did who took the art classes this summer. I can't wait to see Brady's painting and pottery I will post pictures later.

Jennifer did a post on What are you reading??? so I thought I would share. This first book is a new one that I just got this past week at the beach and it is wonderful and just lifts your spirit and makes you realize God is all around us in everything that happens in our lives. Good book to give as a gift I went back and bought 3 more.

The set of books below is my fun, trash read nothing but funny from these books. Tara turned me onto this series and I can't get enough of them. Stephanie Plum is such a hoot!!
This little book is a great quick read that a friend told me about and I just finished it this weekend.



Oh my I have found a new favorite. Many of you know I love a great smelling candle when you walk into a home and for many years now I have used the same scent Red Current. Later I found out it was Oprah and Sarah Jessica Parkers favorite too. Its funny when I was on the parade of home people called me for weeks after and asked me what was the scent I used in our home. Well I always look when I am out and about and never find any scent that comes close to me liking it as well as Red Current, well I found one at Shore Thing by Archipelago called Luna and it is a lemon verbena, lavender and thyme scent and its wonderful! I bought the diffuser set (only because its all they had in that scent left) but went online and ordered the candles, Amazon has them. Just thought I would share for those of you who like these sort of things.
