LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Fun Monday

Monday my sweet Hubby actually got a day off. He started a second job almost two months ago and is working 75 to 80 hours a week. This second job will be full time soon, as they are training him for a management position. Then he can cut back on these crazy hours. I literally pray him out the door every day and down the road as he is living on 3-4 hours of sleep every night. Since I have been sick, I haven't been able to get as much work done as I used to, and any type of job for me out of the home isn't plausible now , so he stepped up and is taking the slack. My sweet, sweet man.
I love this man more than you could possibly imagine. I am so terribly blessed. He wakes up every day with a smile on his face and never ever complains. I am truly loved like Christ loves the church , he is such an awesome man of God. Tears are streaming down my face as I write this, as truly, nothing in my life I EVER did measures up to the Blessing that this man is in my life. Monday he had a day off, and instead of catching up on some much needed sleep, he called my Mom and said, I am taking you ladies to lunch and thrifting !! We ended up at this casino for lunch, Sam's Town. None of us gamble, but they have a good Buffet and they have a great fresh salad bar . It was 109 degrees out and this sounded wonderful !! Inside the casino is this Atrium, luckily for us, air conditioned. lol !! And there were Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My !!! Here is hubby with Mom. :)



Is that place cool or what ? It was like a little oasis in the middle of the desert. All of the plants were real, it is climate controlled in there. Everything outside is pretty much brown and dead for the summer, so this was so fun just to stroll though. And on a Monday afternoon, not crowded really either.

I bought lots of stuff at the thrift stores and am making up some things for Etsy. I found these vintage doll cups and couldn't pass them up. Are they sweet or what ??


Last week, look what I got in the mail !!! Sweet Miss Connie sent me this Gorgeous lingerie bag !!! ( Oops, I should have ironed it ) Is this the prettiest thing or what ??? I love the yummy vintage pink. I think she has more on her new selling Boutique " La Maison Rose"

And I got this sweetest little shabby roses plate from Steph's new Boutique " Angelic Accents A La Carte "


Both ladies are having Flea Market Fridays, and have fresh items listed every few days, so please go check them out, there is some great Stuff to be had !! Finally, if you haven't already signed up for my giveaway this Saturday, please go to my last post and sign up !! Thanks so much for all of the doll kit purchases. I have had so much fun making them. I will be offering white ones tomorrow on etsy and Saturday I will post some pictures of what I made with my own Dress me Doll kits. :) I cant wait to see what you made with yours !! :)

Hugs,

Rhea

Hi Rhea, thank you for stopping by my pink saturday and posting such sweet comments! Yes I think we do have the same little plate with roses, I bought mine from Steph too! I love little plates like that, I keep them in guest bedrooms for guests to put their jewerly and change in at the end of the day.
