My Day With Olivia...

What a fabulous day I had with Olivia!!! It was just some very much needed, good ole fashion, girl time...
She is my youngest, my love, and my heart!!! Let me tell you a few things about this blessing of mine... 
She is the calm in the storm, she is the voice of reason, she is my fountain of youth. She is kind, generous, sensitive, very very complicated, extremely honest, unpredictable, creative, nurturing, a good listener, ethical and loyal...
Olivia...I love your belly laughs, your long ago chubby checks, your sense of style, and your sweet nature. You are determined, organized, and driven. And with this, you will go far in life...


Our first stop, was for lunch at The Soma Center. Olivia has been a vegetarian since February, so we have been trying to find places to eat around town that cater to vegetarians. If by chance you were wondering... McDonald's absolutely does not!!! I, personally, love McDonald's french fries and quarter pounder's with cheese. YUM!!!



 


After lunch, we walked around the Historic District of Lake Worth, had ice cream from Kilwins, and did a little antique shopping for mom. Also, a little purse shopping for Olivia...





Then towards early evening, before the sun went down, we took the dogs to the beach. I don't know who had more fun, the dogs, Olivia, or me!!! Watching them run and play was a real treat...





Olivia... I love you around the moon and the stars, and back again a bazillion times...

Who Doesn't Love Vera Bradley...

I got up this morning thinking my bedroom closet looked like a hurricane went through there, or maybe some sort of explosion went off when I was not home. I, myself, could not have created such a mess!!! Well, really I can... I can make some really good messes!!! I'm just choosing not to think so in this particular case :)
When I was organizing my purses and travel bags. I came across my Vera Bradley Bags... I actually have 3 of them... Plus, I have some other really pretty items from her. Did I mention I love Vera Bradley?! Really I do...
I still have my very first Vera Bradley Weekender Bag. I bought it 17 years ago when I was going on a trip to Naples, Florida.  It has been washed a bazillion times, dried just as many, dropped, dragged, spilled way too many things on it to count, a puppy chewed on it, went to Italy and the list goes on and on... And it still looks fabulous!!! My girls now have several of there own and love them too... 


Nope...I don't work for Vera Bradley. I just love all of her things!!! It would be fun though to have " a cute little shoppe" in "a cute little town" to sell her items. Hhhmmm maybe one day...

A Little Dessert Stand...

For those of you that know me...You know that I have a ridiculous obsession for mixing bowels and cute little dessert/sandwich plates. (Oooops!!! bowls). Thank you so so much Janet for proof reading my post and leaving the comment so I would know!!!  Now, I have something very cute, that I can do with some of these plates!!! Also, what a great gift to make and give someone...
You only need three things to make this... Isn't that fabulous?!
  • Plate
  • Glass Candle Stick
  • Glue/or Low Temperature Glue Gun

 Hmmmm... I Wonder which plate I should use?!

I just love easy and fast projects!!! The brownies were delicious too...

Addendum added 7/19/10:  As I was washing by hand, my little dessert stand. It came apart...Oooops!!! Of course that was not the exact word I was thinking or actually said :)
So here is what you must use... A low temperature glue gun or a glue called E6000 in clear. I am very very sorry if someone made this and fell apart too!!!
