It's Time for a Bit of a Break!

Hey, everyone!  At the end of my last post, I mentioned I would be taking a bloggy vacation but thought I'd better make more of an announcement than that.  I don't want any of you to think I've just abandoned ship or anything....lol!  Nothing serious is wrong, we just have some "biggie" things starting to happen around here that I really need to devote my full time and attention to for awhile.  I'm going to try to make a few visits this morning, but then I will be going "Cold Turkey" on blogging -- don't laugh, because I know most of you are as "addicted" to blogging as I am!  So anyway, I'm off to make a few quick visits (I just need a little "fix") & then going silent.  I'll share everything (well, almost) when I return.

Before I go, I'd just like to leave you with a few pics of our darling, oldest granddaughter (older by a minute or so than her twin sis).  Taylor, age 12,  has developed a passion for gymnastics over the last few year.  A month ago, during her "free gym" time, she started using the trampoline.  The coach was watching her & invited her to join the Trampoline Team.  Did you know that "Trampoline" is now an official Olympic event?  These pics were taken at a Meet about two weeks after she joined the team.  I apologize, most of the pics are a bit fuzzy, because I haven't mastered the art of taking action photos...!

She is so poised!

I know she was nervous, but she totally concealed it.

She is very slender, so she has to really work at getting height.

Seriously, ouch!

This entire Meet was set up like a "Mini Olympics," including the "medals" awards.  Taylor won two 2nd place medals & tied for 5th.  This was just the best pic, because she finally saw me in the crowd & gave me one of her sweet smiles!  Sniff, sniff.....Taylor has been in 2 more Meets since this one & just found out this week, that she is going to the Jr. National Olympics in Long Beach in July!  We are so excited and proud of her.
As always, thank you so much for stopping by.  Please don't forget me while I'm away -- heehee!  Have a great weekend y'all!

Some Green in the Desert!

   Hey, everyone!  I guess you might say I'm abiding by my New Year's resolution & only posting when I have something to share, because my posts have been far and few between.  Always something going on around here, but not all of it is "share worthy"......lol!  The Man has been doing lots of things in the yard, so I thought I'd share some of the progress.

Master Bedroom Reveal!

Hey, everyone!  I hope y'all had a wonderful Easter.  We spent Sunday afternoon with our 2 youngest "Grands," & got to enjoy watching them participate in a little neighborhood egg hunt.  So cute!  Anyway, before I start packing away the Easter decor, I wanted to share our master bedroom update.  A while back I gave you this "sneaky peek" at the fabric I was planning to use.  It was love at first sight for me!  Well, would you like to see the transformation?  Of course you would, I know y'all so well....lol!

HAPPY EASTER!

Happy Easter, everyone!  From my family to yours, we wish you a blessedly beautiful day.  However you choose to celebrate this day, we sincerely hope you are spending it with at least one person you cherish.
Sincerely,
CAS & family

My Guest Room -- Finally!

Hey everyone!  I've been a bit MIA lately, but we've been busy working on projects around here.  Some projects have been outside & others have been inside.  I actually finished up our guest room a few weeks ago, but didn't have time to post about it, so thought I'd give you a little look-see.  It's certainly not a fancy-shmancy room by many of the standards I've seen here in blogland, but I've tried to make it comfortable & inviting for both young and old alike.  It is also home to several family keepsakes that just didn't seem to work in other rooms of our home.  So grab an iced tea or cup of something & be prepared for photo overload.....lol!
