Washed up !


Can you tell I'm in need of a vacation?

Bad! My decorating has gone to the beach! I mean if my husband doesn't hurry up and get me outta here I just may cover our walls in sea grass. Replace our floors with old wooden planks from a boat. Hang a tropical net over our bed. Hire a cabana boy to bring me my sonic drinks...{you know that last one is really not a bad idea}!
...but for now I must stay put and allow Madison to complete dance classes and art lessons....and try not to set up a salt water aquarium in the middle of our kitchen. So just please hang in there with me while my brain has gone to the beach and left my body washed up here in my backyard. OOOOOOO gotta go. Ally , our wonder dog has just gotten one of my neighbors chickens....AGAIN!

  10. The beach sounds really good to me right now!!! We just got home from a 2 1/2 hour ball practice. If it was between the beach or ball practice.....the beach would win EVERY time!

  13. I'm thinking "beach" too. I just put a photo of shells on my blog header and I'm dreaming of aqua for a beachy bedroom redo! Since I only live 30 minutes from the beach, I don't know why I don't just get in the car and go out there for a few hours. ???

  14. If you follow my blog you will see where my heart and mind are constantly...at the beach! It is the place that feeds my soul, and I feel closer to God there than anywhere else on earth. Now I am just trying to figure out how to turn my 40 year old ranch-style home in TN into a beach retreat. Hmmm...

  26. I'm in love with those star fish.
    Of course, ever since I've started seeing beachy houses I've been coveting one and since I can't have one, I'm thinking my house should be one and I'll settle for a big ole pool instead of the ocean. But I can dream.
