Show and Tell for the 15th...

I am joining in Kelli over at There is no place like home in her weekly Show and Tell Friday. This is my first time to participate and I am very excited to join in on the fun.

For Show and Tell this week, I would like to share a picture of a deer I saw earlier today. It was very exciting to see him on the side of the road at the State Park. My father-in-law stopped the car so I could get a picture of the deer. So here it is.

Summer Beauty...

Hi everybody!

I hope that all of you have had a great week so far. I am excited to be taking a little trip to Florida this week. I am currently visiting my in-laws and in just a little bit I will be heading to my families home.

Here is a picture of my beautiful lilies that are blooming at my home. So I thought that I would share some pictures of them.

Diapers, Onesies, and Cake...

Today I hosted a Baby Shower for my dear friends K. She and I are really good friends and when she told she was expecting I told her that I wanted to throw her a shower. This is her second child and she is having another boy. So, the shower was not to big but as some would call it, it was a "sprinkle" of an event.

For favors I stacked three scented tea lights and wrapped them in colorful tissue paper and ribbon.

The menu consisted of apples and caramel dip, a veggie tray, a fruit tray, spinach dip and crackers, chips and french onion dip, chicken salad, and croissants.

This is a picture of the table after the shower was over, I forgot to take a picture before. Rats!

I made the cake myself and was really happy with the way that it turned out. Here are a few pictures of it.

I also tried a punch recipe from Paula Dean. Here is the recipe.

I did place a few balloons in the living room to give the house the party "feel".

For games we did the traditional word scrambles and trivia games. We also did the mommy's girth game. We also played a make the baby's picture game. In which guests create what they think the baby will look like by taking elements from baby pictures in magazines.

We had a really nice time. K gave me this picture frame as a hostess gift.

Guess Who I Am...

Mrs. Wilt, over at The Sparrow's Nest, had her results to a Jane Austin's Heroine Quiz. I decided to give the quiz a try.

I asked my DH if this was right and he said he thought it was a good match. So, I am Elinor Dashwood.

Go over to the quiz and see who you are.

A Restful Sunday...

Hi everyone! I hope that as the end of the weekend approaches, each of you can look back and say that you had a nice weekend.

I had a very nice weekend. Late yesterday morning, I had a meeting at my church about the summer programs for children in the church. Afterwards, my DH and I went out to lunch with our pastor 's family and another sweet family in our church. It was really nice to have the opportunity to fellowship with them.

Yesterday evening, my DH and I went over to some of our friends' house for dinner and a game of spades. We had a marvelous time, even though we did get beat pretty bad in spades.

This morning, we went to church and I was working in the nursery for the sermon. Afterwards, I came home and made chili for lunch. My DH and I spent the rest of the afternoon playing board games and calling our families.

It has been a truly wonderful and restful Sunday.
