I was finally able to finish my Hobo Bag.  My parents and great friend visited over the weekend of the 4th of July and the projects being completed were pouring out.

The guys worked on the deck while my mom helped me finish up some projects.  Isnt this bag so much fun and oh the stuff it can hold is endless.  Mom was very patient in taking me step by step through the pattern instructions.

Other projects are soon to come along with pictures of the awesome deck that is now attached to our house!

Off to try out that thing people call "relaxing."  It sounds pretty awesome!!  :)

...very little compared to my usual weekend accomplishments.  BUT..I did work on these hot pad holders and sure had fun.  I am learning with each one and cannot wait to do my extra fun ones my mom got me to do!

Off to bed to start a new dish rag now and enjoy my nice clean sheets.  I just love the feeling of fresh sheets, dont you?

Guten Nacht.

I WISH I WAS......

Here again.......

These were our first steps on the ocean and just the beginning of our wedding vacation.  We packed 6 adults and, oh gosh, 8 suitcases and 4 bags into a midsized car!  It was quite the trip from Orlando to Flagler Beach, but in the end we have many stories and laughs from it. 

We ate at a cute place just across the street from the ocean and took turns walking over to the ocean to dip our toes in.  We all went for a beach stroll to work off the great food and fun drinks then.  You are always bound and determined to see something you really don't care to see when strolling the beaches in Florida!!  We got a picture, but trust me and take my word for it!

The dock was beautiful and we couldn't wait to be one of the many beach combers for the next 4 days.

  After our stroll on the beach we were able to catch the very end of the local farmers markets.  We all went nuts with vegetables!  After it was all purchased and bagged up, Josh asked just where we were going to put it in the already over packed car.  We just laughed. Put mom in first and then surround her with bags, it worked perfect and off to the beach house we went..................
