Elizer's Baby Shower

I had to post this in honor to Elizer who is going to be a first time momma. Congratulations Ellie!

Over the weekend my sister- in- law and I, threw my step-daughter a baby shower. I never had hosted one before, so all of it was kinda new to me. It was awesome and we all had lots of fun. Many thanks to everyone for your heartfelt wishes.

Proud Parents to be

The Color Green

I have a thing for the color green. I don’t know why. I just love the way it reminds me of a nice manicured lawn or maybe because it is the color of our greenbacks. I really can't pin point it.

I have different shades of green in my kitchen and on my bathroom walls. I also have a large French wardrobe painted in the green color shown below in my living area. It seems I can’t get enough of it.

As soon as I put something in the store in this color it vanishes. I guess I am not alone.
