Weekly Recap


Camping and floating round two was last weekend.  This was the first thing I saw when we pulled up to the grounds.......



The river was beautiful, and it had a few fun features.  Like a spring-fed pool you could jump into that was 42 degrees.  Or trees you could inchworm down and launch yourself from.  I was the first one out on the tree (stalling) while the mister manned the canoe.........



Birchbox number three arrived.  It had a full size mascara and Stila eyeshadow samples - both good.  The granola bar - not so good.......



We took a little road trip to my Grampy's house.  I love this little place.  My great grandparents built it in the 1950's.  Many happy childhood memories here.....



You know how I feel about chevrons, right?  Chevrons are basically my first love.  Well.  When Schlager purchased the best rug for her new house, I just had to be a copycat.  Hey, my porch needed some attention too!  Sir Chester even approved........



I mean all's fair in friendship and chevrons.

Isn't that how the saying goes?
