Color of the Week - Green

Ahhh, I love this pot. Can you really love a pot? Well, I can say that I really do love this pot. It is called kiwi and it is gorgeous. I coveted it for quite some time but I couldn't bring myself to pay that much for a pot. But, a little GC to Williams-Sonoma courtesy of reward points and it was all mine. I hope to soon add more to my collection as it is lonely. Oh, and it really does cook beautifully. Matter of fact I have a brisket in mine right now. :)




Pretty green glasses. I bought these from a very shi-shi home store in Miami. I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them. I only break them out for company. Last time we drank out of them was at Natty's birthday party and I made a drink with prosecco, pomegranite juice, orange juice and fresh limes. Delish! :)




This is a sausage tree. I've never seen one before and I thought it was kinda neat looking. It doesn't really grow sausages. It got it's name because the things hanging from it look lik…

Yellow - Color of the Week

Image
At the apple picking farm, there was a small garden of just sunflowers. They were the most magnificent sunflowers I have ever seen. They were so tall and the colors so vibrant. I wanted to take them home with me. I thought oh they are perfect for Sharon's color of the week. So here ya go. Enjoy them...

Apple Picking

Image
Every year we go apple picking. We have our usual favorites but this time we decided to try some place new... Apple Hill Farm. It was a bit of a ways away but it was near our favorite brew pub so I was game.

They had several varities like red and golden delicious, macoun, jonagold and opalescent which were HUGE but I did not like the layout. It did not have that u-pick kinda feel. There was a private house right in the middle that you had to walk around. It wasn't at all crowded which I guess some may like but I like when there are lots of people. It makes it feel more like an event, more festive. But what do I know. It seems the rest of the family liked it just fine.




My favorite shot of the day...



Eating the fruits of their labor. LOL! Get it!? ;)




Down by the parking lot, they had an old fire engine set up with bales of hay and pumpkins. Really cute. The kiddos had to get in for a ride. Of course, they fought about who would get to drive first. But I managed to get t…

Over the summer, my brother and his fiance got married on the island of St. Lucia. They ran off and had the tropical island wedding that they both wanted. Since there was no one there to celebrate with them, Denise's parents threw them a party on Sunday.

I was so excited to meet her family. Altho my Mom and Dad have met them several times, they live in Tampa and I have enver met them. So, I got finally met them yesterday.

The food was delicious and it was nice seeing old friends and meeting new "family" too. I managed to get a few shots none of them great. I had a little too much vino. :O



Me and my crew.


My sister and her family minus the newborn.



Outside the hall.



And, finally, cutting the cake. :)

First Day of School

Image
I am always so sad on the first day of school. I enjoy having them around all summer. I will miss the lazy days of no schedule. I will miss their banter. I will miss them.

One bright spot is that both of my kiddos are in the same school this year. A good thing since that means one bus stop. And it is later so it gives me more time to run around after work.

So here are the requisite first day photos taken in my driveway before the bus came.

Natty...



Dylan...



And one shot together...

White Monday

These are so FUN to do. I love searching for things that represent me in a specific color. :D

Here are my white Monday photos...

Love these shades. Totally sleek and chic. :D




I have always wanted a men's watch. I think this one is FABOO!




Michael Kors white wedges. Wished I'd seen these at the beginning of the season!




White shells on top of sand...



Can't wait for next week's color! :)
