Ice cream with whipped cream and a cherry on top. . .

The Ice Cream - we snuck away last week and took a small vacation. We literally went out the door a week ago Sunday headed to Destin, calling on the way down for reservations! It was soooooo nice! Upper 80's and nobody there to fight over pool chairs with. We laid on the beach, swam in the ocean, antiqued and visited Seaside. Here are a couple of photos we took there:



The Whipped Cream - we then headed to the mountains (and high in the 60's!) for the weekend. This was only my second time to the Smokey Mountains since I have lived here. The leaves were just starting to change and we even saw a momma bear with two cubs while hiking on Saturday. Here is a photo of my guys all decked out and ready to go:


The cherry on top - my husband surprised me last week with tickets to the John Mayer concert (last night). So we drove back into town, and then headed to Starwood for the concert. So nice of him to do this since he knows I'm so in love with this guy! Really an amazing concert - "Gravity" live is really something you don't want to miss if the tour comes to you. I am patiently waiting for him to come back to Nashville. . . Look for my "Ode to John" in the gallery this month - you will notice more than one layout inspired by his lyrics!

Speaking of the site, kits go out tomorrow! Remember, we did not perform any billing this month. You have to go to the site and purchase these kits if you would like to have them. The Gallery will be up on the 12th by the end of the day. I am down to only a couple of the past Project Kits available (March, April and July) so if you would still like one of these, we can send you an invoice. Scroll down the blog to see the entry with the prices. I have so few left that these will not be going up for sale on the new site. Get them while they last! Just use the contact link at the site to request an invoice.

Have a great night!

Pin It!

How fun--an spontaneous family adventure! I love it those! Sounds like you all had a great time. And you sound very refreshed! :)

Very curious about what you found while antiqueing. Something fabulous no doubt!!!

So glad you got away for the week! Well deserved vacation. Our weather was wonderful too...but back to reality with strep throat when we returned after one day of mother's day out!

Sounds like lots of fun. What a nice hubby you have...
But, where's our little hint at the guest designer???

It sounds like you had a great time at the beach, and in the mountains. What a nice break for all of you.
I can't wait to see the new inspiration, and the new site. :-)

I am sooo jealous! John Mayer! My husband went to some huge concert in Houston last month and got to see him...for the second time. But has he gotten me tickets yet?? No! I will have to tell him about your surprise, and maybe he will get the hint! I'm so glad your family had a nice getaway.

Have a blessed Day!

Lucky me! Just got the October kits on the front porch today. So glad I live close to you. They are awesome, as usual. Thanks for all the great stuff!

I used to live in Niceville, FL (just over the bridge from Destin) miss the beach and miss Seaside even MORE!!!
Think I would take the Smokies over the beach any day though!

Lucky girl! You made me feel much better. The other day, I was wondering if I was the only "older" woman, not a teen, that thought JM was hot and steamy. Looking forward to meeting you in March.
