Basket of Sunflowers

Basket of Sunflowers

One day I’m going to own an old pick-up truck.

I’m still trying to decide the color…

…but I have time to think.

It’s waiting its turn in line behind braces for 3 mouths of teeth…family beach trips…college tuitions…

…you get the idea. :)

And one day I’m going to plant a field of sunflowers and cut them by the buckets full and load them into my pick-up truck and take them down to my town square and sell them at the farmer’s market.

I think I’ll wear a straw hat with a red and white gingham bow…

The New Kroger Franklin Marketplace

Posted by on May 11, 2014 in Uncategorized | 2 comments

**Kroger selected several bloggers, including me, to create posts about the Franklin Grand Opening, and provided me with a $100 Kroger gift card, a gift bag valued at $100 and a complimentary lunch to thank me for my participation and post…

but all opinions are 100% mine!**

I’m typically not the type of person to be impressed with a grocery store.

I go grocery shopping because I have a family of people that depend on me to feed them.

This is not one of the errands on my list that I look forward to.

But after touring this new Kroger store in Franklin, TN…

…I realize it’s because I’ve never been to a grocery store like this!

Because wowzer!

This is not your average “run in and fill your basket as fast as you can so you can get on to what you really want to do” kind of grocery store.

This is an experience!

My Favorites of 2013

Posted by on Dec 30, 2013 in Uncategorized | 9 comments

 Our Christmas break started with an amazing…fun-filled…roller-coaster riding…show watching…character meeting…road trip to Disney World with some of our dearest friends on the planet! :)

Followed by a round of some unknown lingering virus…

…which led to us all watching entirely too much television.

And since we only have basic cable, we rely on Netflix for most of our shows.

I have practically memorized every episode of Cake Boss

…and, The Next Great Baker

…so, I encouraged the girls to look around and see what else they could find.

That little search led to the discovery of 17 Kids and Counting.

We have finished the first 2 seasons, and my girls can now list all of the Duggar children …by namein order.

{I’m so proud.}

 There are now 19 Duggar children, so I was tempted to list my favorite 19 projects of 2013…

…but, I decided that might be too many. :)

So, here are my 10 favorites…
