All over the place!

We have been a bit all over the place this past week or two. See this little cutie above? She actually turns 80 years old this week.  Meet my mother in law, Jean.  Words can't describe how much we love her and appreciate her.  We are hosting her birthday party this Saturday so we have been busy this week cleaning, trimming,  know the drill.  I am working on some picture displays and small projects for the party that I will be sharing this week. That should be fun so stay tuned!  I'll have to ask "Ama Jean" to please not visit my blog this week though!  

We also wrapped up school for the year this past week and celebrated Jack's 12th birthday! We celebrated by playing laser tag at a very, very fun facility nearby.  Too dark for pictures but SO much fun. Finally, Kara and I were lucky enough to see Taylor Swift last night in Orlando! ps - Kara said to tell you she hates this picture of herself. I think because her hair is pulled back funny.  And so it

We had great seats. I was able to snap these with my point and shoot. Check out the cute vintage dresses and microphone in the last picture here.  It was a great show.   Stay tuned this week for vintage photo display ideas, small paper and fabric projects plus some summer touches around the house. Have a great week! xoxo


  1. My daughter would be so jealous of your Taylor Swift concert and your amazing seats. What a special treat. The pictures of your MIL are just treasures. Have a lovely party in her honor!!

  2. Oh what fun you and your daughter have had, I'll say, you had GREAT seats. Catch this, my Mom turns 80 June 9th. She is in Minnesota now, so I won't see her for her BD, she wan't absolutely no celebration OK! She said age has never bothered her, but this 80 is sending her for a loop. Have fun, can't wait for pictures

Kate and I (yeah, I have to admit, I love her too), Have been big fans of hers ever since she started out a few years ago and were lucky enough to see her at the grand ole opery with some other great artists at a christmas concert. She was fabulous!
