Off to Party Like RoCk StAr

Hi all!  One of my dear friends is getting married next month and her bachelorette party is this weekend at the Crowne Plaza in Columbus Ohio.  It is a themed party, 50's.  I love themed parties, truly I do.  BUT when they send me a picture of Audrey Hephurn in those skinny capri's, HECK NO!  Katharine is more my style.  I think I will make sure the hair and makeup are perfect and the outfit will fall into place!!!  Right ???  Right???  RIGHT???  RIGHT?????  RIGHT!!!!!!

No matter what, I am going to have a blast with these girls!

What I am even more excited about is Friday and Saturday day.  Me, the future bride and her Mom are going up early so we can spend two "days" at the Country Living Fair in Columbus!!!  I can hardly wait!!!  Of course I will take lots of pictures to share with everyone!!!

So this is my inspiration picture ....

My Mom is on the far right.  This is 60's but who's counting?
She was a rock star before Rock Star's were cool!

Two days of flowers, just as nice.

Yesterday brightened so many faces with a field of sunflowers, I thought I would give a shot at a picture after I picked every one of my day lily blooms.  I know it's not all poetic or silly or enlightening, but they are just too lovely to keep to myself today!

I love reds, oranges and yellows together, boy did God have this one right!

I love the bright yellow throat of this lily and the ruffle around the leaves.  Enjoy the day my friends!

sunflowers on route 68

How do you not love sunflowers on Route 68?  Well, you just love them.  Every year this farmer plants a field of sunflowers right outside of Yellow Springs, Ohio.  They are just lovely and I wanted to share my sunshine with you today!

Is there anything better than ....

Is there anything better than (what)

Okay, here are my questions and answers, see if you can beat them!!!

Is there anything better than leftover prime rib?
Is there anything better than Ohio's Silver Queen corn on the cob with Amish butter?
Is there anything better than the first snow fall, the first sign of spring, the smell of autumn in the air and summertime in the pool?
Is there anything better than a COLD Budlight after spending hours doing yard work?
And is there anything better than that simple touch a husband gives you while you are doing dishes and then he whispers that was delicious babe?
Or the smell of apple pie from fresh picked apples on a family day at the orchard?
Is there anything better than the delicate touch of a child, just when they take your hand or touch your face?
Is there anything better than a really good football game with lots of cheers and ohhhhhs? 
Is there anything better than a good memory?
AND I can say, there is nothing better than a perfectly toasted marshmellow on a cool light breezy evening ... well, besides putting the whole thing in your mouth!!!! 

Of course I have a ton more, these were just to get you started ... I had a hard time stopping ... like family reunions, game night with the kids, skiing, vacations, a good book.  Okay okay, I am going, eesh!
