Vera Sale

I received an email this morning that the Vera Bradley site was having 50% off sale on four fabrics.

Lemon Parfait~I just bought this pattern for my daughter for her 18th birthday. I didn't like it at first but it's really starting to grow on me.

Twirly Bird Pink~ This has always been a huge fabric in our house. It's also their breast cancer awareness fabric.

Purple Punch~ An older fabric

English Meadow~I currently don't own anything in this one so I can't say if I like it or not.

The sale is only going on until tomorrow and knowing how these sales go, everything will sell out quickly. I thought I would pass this sale info along in case someone "needed" a new Vera. ;)

Happy Saturday....

Wordless wednesday

Dump trucks and dirt, it's what keeps boys busy for hours. Oh and little boys too! Ha!

Wordless Wednesday

The last few days the temperatures have almost reached 90 degrees here. Very rare. When you have to do some last minute birthday shopping there is no place better than an outdoor mall. We are very fortunate to live near two outdoor malls. This one is Bubby's favorite. Any guesses why? Ha!

Now that we have had a taste of summer like weather,I'm getting itchy to open our pool.

18 years went so fast......

Wishing my daughter a very Happy Birthday today. Tornado turns 18 today. I'm not sure where all the years have gone. In honor of her birthday I thought I would share a post I wrote for her 3 years ago. Here. Off to enjoy her dinner.

Happy Birthday Sweetie!

I'm off today to take my 17 year old for her Drivers test. Hoping things go more smoothly than the last time I was there with my 16 year old. Wish us luck. My daughter is so nervous. In our state if you don't pass parallel parking you fail. Guess what they test you on first? Yep. Parallel parking. My oldest didn't pass her drivers test on the first try because of it. Here's to better luck. HA!

Hope everyone has a nice Thursday!

Aloha Friday

It's Friday so that can only mean one thing, it's time for Island's life question. My question to you this week is:

Do you have several drafts/unfinished blog posts in your blog folder? I hate to admit this but I do. I umm...actually have several. I'm working on finally cleaning them out.
So head over to Island's life and answer her question too. Since I am Linky challenged just leave a comment with your link and I will visit your site too.

April Fool's Day

Those who know me well also know that I have always hated April Fool's Day. Even as a kid. I hate jokes. I dislike Halloween too. I know it's weird. Actually,I'm not fond of the month of April either. 8 years ago I learned to hate it even more. My hubby was diagnosed with non Hodgkin's. It began what would be a two year treatment program. A very long two years. A year later to the day my Mother in law was diagnosed with breast cancer. Which began her year of treatments. We had a couple of years of crazy times in the Burg house. Did I mention that 15 years before all of that my Dad had his kidney removed with a 9 pound tumor attached to it? He died months later. His surgery was not on April 1st but still was in April. The exception of Tornado's birthday April has not been a very good month for us. I actually dread it every year. We always have a string of bad luck in April. Why am I bringing all of this up? I woke up this morning to the news that my Dad's sister died. Lung cancer. Ugh. I just want to craw back into bed and throw the covers over my head. Praying the rest of April gets better.

How many days until April is over?
