Life has kept me busy!

Hello and welcome if your here by way of Roses of Inspiration be sure to hit Mr. Linky after you've finished reading my ramblings, tons of great blogs will be featured!!!


Life has been a very busy highway for me lately!  First was my and my loves 27th Wedding Anniversary in January...can't believe its been that long!  We have been married since I was two! LOL!  Here is a photo taken by yours truely a few days after our anniversary while having dinner at Chilis.





....I must add, hubby took me to Ruths Chris  for dinner on our Anniversary and I did not get a photo!!! Crazy but guess we were caught up in the moment...Very lovely restaurant!  and he also sent me these two lovely arrangements.......


Next up we attended The Shriners Crab Feed to raise money for their Organization.  They treated our daughter 9 years ago when she was diagnosed with Progressive Idopathic Scoliosis.  She had corrective surgery at their facility in Utah and it was an AMAZING surgery.  Such lovely people worked at the hospital and the Doctor even prayed with us before surgery.  She grew 4 inches that day and has done super ever since!!  Sidetracked there....but here are some pictures from that evening....

Hubby with his buddy Roger 

Me with his wife Phyllis......GREAT COUPLE! 
Now when I eat crab I do it totally different from the norm.....I crack , split, dig and pile it high, then pour some butter over it and dig in!!!   Look at my gold!!!! haha


I was the envy at the table!!! LOL


Next on the agenda Me and a few of the ladies from the board (I am womens minstries director at our church) organized a Valentines Dinner, Music and Silent Auction to raise funds for new tables in our multipurpose room....we are in desparate need of new tables but the Lord is providing for us and things are going great!!!  I believe we almost have enought to purchase 24 tables from just two events! Woohoo!  Here are some photo's from that evenings events....

First up me and the hubster...he was goofing off and we had to take two photo's  here they are.....

Our Eldest and her boyfriend of almost three years....
 Our other daughter with her friend........
Our very dear friends that we spend quite a bit of time with....

Our friend Karen , aka adopted Grandma
the table decorations
and lastly a photo of my FAVORITE piece we won at the auction....we won several things but this is my fav.....a very old candlestick holder made all of wood!!! I had that used candle that fit perfectly with my new holder and it looks great on my ice box with water cooler on top!  We also won an old printers press drawer where they kept their letters....OH SO COOL, just couldn't get a good photo.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to let me know you visited!!!!  May Gods Blessings be yours today!!
