Weekend Highlights

I just love Sundays....and I love them even more when I don't have to go to work on Monday. Three day weekends are the best! I'm off tomorrow for Martin Luther King Day! I have had a wonderful weekend so far and I still have the rest of today and all day tomorrow to enjoy! I decided to share a few highlights from the weekend with you today.

This photo isn't from my weekend, but don't you love the flowers my kinders brought me from the playground? Tiny purple flowers...:) It amazes me how much detail something so small can have!

A sunset photo from one of mine and mama's walks. I am so proud of myself for walking 2-2 1/2 miles almost every day this week. I didn't walk on the two days when I was sick but have every other day. I have lost 6 pounds in two weeks...:) 

Friday night I got together with several of my girlfriends and sister to celebrate our friend Syleta's birthday. I've named them all below the picture. Heather...on the far left is the one some of you have been praying for. Jeana is my best friend, and Nancy is my sister. I just love this group of girls...:) We grilled steaks, had twice baked potatoes, corn on the cob,  my romaine salad, and bread. Jeana made the birthday cake....she's the when it comes to cooking! 

She also made this yummy pineapple dessert!
Isn't it pretty?

Saturday, the hubby and I got up and went to Lake City to the flea market and Lowe's so he could use a gift card my sister gave him for Christmas. We decided to try a  place we had never Italian place called Gondolier, and it was very tasty! I had a margarita pizza (white favorite)! I ate two pieces and brought the other two home for supper. 

I only ate two pieces so Joey and I could split a dessert. They had a dessert case full of amazing cakes! We chose the white chocolate with raspberry filling....heavenly!

Here's what I found at the flea market. I couldn't believe I got this adorable little cloche with the stand for just $1. It has a knob on top with a hook inside to hang something special on. I have an idea for this and will share if it works out...:) I was thrilled to find this brand new set of rubber stamps and the sweet little frame too.

The heart frame is for my Valentine's Day vignette I am working on and I was so happy to finally find a glass doorknob in my price range. I would love to have these on all the doors in my home! So....all these treasures for $6! Happy camper here...:)

Of course I couldn't go to Lake City and not stop by Michael's for a minute! I got a couple things in there for Valentine's Day, some baker's twine, and a new set of alphabet stamps. Crafty stuff just makes me happy!

Came home and piddled in the craft room for a bit and then went walking with mama. Loved the sun peeking through the tree on the way home...:)

I was happy to see my camellia's blooming so pretty after all the rain and cold weather we've had recently. Snapped a couple photos before I picked myself a new bouquet.

Happy moment last night while I was snuggled up under my fuzzy chevron blanket...this face...:) She laid her head on my leg in hopes that I would share a snack with her. Of course I did. Who could resist that sweet little face? I just love my Sadie Lou...:)

Here's a sneak peek at what I was piddling on in the craft room.....

Any guesses? I'll share tomorrow! 
Until then, have a lovely Sunday evening friends.


  1. You sound so happy, you must be feeling a whole lot better. A wonderfully filled weekend for you. I love that name Syleta (sy-lee-ta or sy-let-a?) Great treasures - the glass door knob and the little cloche. Cannot think of what you have created. Enjoy your day off.

  2. Hi Vicky! I hope you are feeling much better.

    Congratulations on your exercise program and losing the weight. I love the photo of the sunset from your walk with your Mom.

    You have more nice the heart frame!

  3. Hi Vicky, thanks so much for the update on your weekend. It looks like you had a lot of fun with your friends. I'm so glad that you are feeling better and that you lost some weight (which I need to do too!). I'm glad that there is no school tomorrow too. Have fun what ever you do tomorrow. Enjoy the week too.

  4. Hi Vicky! I've been puttering too, mostly organizational stuff so not much to blog about, but satisfying anyway! Looks like you found some sweet treasures at the flea market, too! I was going to guess that you are making a fabric scrap wreath, but I looked a little closer at the picture and there's a lightbulb in there! LOL So it's maybe some sort of lampshade? Sure looks like fun, can't wait to see it! Enjoy your Monday off... it's back to work for me tomorrow!

  5. 6 pounds in two weeks?! Way to go, girl :) Can't wait to see what you were piddling on - is it a garland with fabric strips attached to it? I was working on some owl pillows over the weekend - they make me smile :) haha

    I do hope you have a lovely week. Hugs to you!

  6. You found some great stuff and things that will be perfect for Valentine's day!
