Countdown, checklists, gardening …

So, the countdown for the twins’ open-house is in full swing.  Menu has been determined, multiple negotiations for set-up and décor have occurred, deep-cleaning is about to begin … Oh, how I love being Martha Stewart!  [Umm, NOT! –  but I’m proud of my kids, love my house and 100 closest family/friends that enjoy that kind of thing … so, it’s all good!]

We even managed to blanch/freeze 6 quarts of beans … Watch out Martha/Pioneer Woman/Caroline Ingalls … I’m catching up with you!

Oh yeah … the Studio:  I’m still on a night light ‘kick’ … Here’s our latest designs.

While I whine, subtly (?) and publicly … I also know I am one blessed, happy gal.  Our first-born turned 24 yesterday.  The kids recently got together, all grown-up style (sans parents – what’s up with that???) – to meet for dinner.  Awww!  Healthy generational foot-prints – they make me happy!  And, I’ve managed 3 sunshine pool days so far this week.  Life is good!
