Happy Birthday Babe

to the sexiest man alive...'s not
Johnny Depp(not this time).

It's my dear hubby John,
a man I married 23 years ago,
a man that supports my every adventure,
who makes me realize... not to
sweat the small things.
Who makes me laugh at myself
when I do or say dumb things.

A man that loves his boys dearly,
especially during 4th of July!

haha...they were looking at a firework that
was NOT supposed to go over in the woods.

A man that kicks his heels up
and has plain fun with
his family.

Happy Birthday Babe.

Angel Food cake...his favorite!

Lustre lamps and typewriters

Oh Gosh....
did I tell you how much eye
candy is at the estate
sale that I'm working at?

A pair of Lustre lamps
caught my eye...

and I think they noticed it too...

 they kept a very
soft magical voice...

I kept shushing them...
but they just didn't listen.

so now they sit happily
in my house.

 Sandi the previous owner said...
 that she remembers the lamps sitting
in her grandmothers house.

Remington Rand typewriter
for my space at the

And a very heavy Underwood
typewriter...also for
my space.

Worst Nightmare

What an interesting night tonite was!
The game was supposed to start at 6pm
It was delayed about an hour due to lightning!
An hour later while
watching the game, the lightning siren
goes off again...we leave the
field and wait in the car until...
mmmm...half an hour later.

Then a parents worst nightmare happened,
a Cocoa player was injured.

An hour and a half later...
The Raiders beat the Cocoa Tigers

Our prayers go to the family and friends
of Cocoa Tigers #20...

After 3 delays...we finally got
home around 9:30!

Practical Magic photos will
be posted tomorrow...
come by and check it out.
