Dress of the week August 27th!

Good  morning Ladies  !   It is  starting  off  with   rain  showers  and  rumbles of  thunder in the  distance .   The  weather  has  been on the  cooler  side ,  in the  high  70s  into the  early 80s. It is  usually  warmer  in August  but  I  will take it. The  grass  is looking   well!  I did  not   get to post  last  week.   I don’t like  missing  weeks  but I am back !

August 22 H.S.

We  had a  pretty  relaxing  weekend   gone  by.  We  did a  few  projects  around  the  house ,  got the   grass  cut  and  generally  were   able to   take it  easy.  On Sunday  we   chatted  with my Parents  and  sister who  just  visited. My sister was  at  their house  dropping off a  new iPad I picked up  for  them ! It  works so much better  to  video chat with!  We  went to  church  at   a nearby parish for  a  change.  It was a  lovely  ceremony. We  stopped   for  a  late  lunch on the  way  home.  Our  daughter  continues  to  do well  at   driving,  she is  getting  better all the  time .  On Tuesday our oldest  son  started a new season of  flag football . It is  a  less  rough  game  than   regular (American Football)   but  learning all the  skills  also. He  also had  practice  on Thursday.   We  got  ready  for  school   this week  with  supplies   and  clothes  purchased .   I am going off on  a tangent here,  but I would love to see  the  schools  bring in  uniforms ! I wore a    uniform  to  school  while not the  prettiest in fashion sense  everyone had the  same !  it was a  coed  school .  It was a  grey blouse , grey skirt   Maroon sweater with Maroon tie .  In the cooler  months tights  were included.  In later  years it was optional to wear  grey pants/trousers.   The boys wore  the same   with grey shirt and  Pants . Anyway  I can see the  value in a  uniform !!! 

 

 

 

Visitors 2022  part 2 ! 

I  left off  last  time ending  day 2 of our visitors trip.    Friday  we  went out  and  about  seeing  some  quaint  towns in the   area . I dropped  our  daughter off at  her  softball tournament  before  that  and another  parent  took  her  home ! Thank you  !   My Sister  went to  dsw  shoe  store  and  got  some  great  bargains and  cute  sandals  !    In  the    evening  we went to the  mall of  America, it  had  been 17 years  since  they had  been there( the time  we got married!)   We   walked all around  and  they got to see  all the  pretty, and   novel stores  but  did not  do  much  shopping.  We  had  dinner  in the  mall before  coming home.   We then had  game  night !  We introduced  them to  corn hole or bean  bags  where the  first  team to 21  wins. It was  so much fun , we  played in teams of  two. corn hole

 

 On  Saturday  they  slept in  a  bit.  They  got   some  breakfast and  I then took  them  to a  nice town on the  cannon  river  called  Northfield.  It is  a lovely   town with a lot of  history  and lots of  small shops.  We   came  back  at  about  1pm  as  we  were  having a little  party get together .  My in-laws came  along with my  brother in-law  and  his  son .   Our  friends Brandon, Josette and Maddi also  joined us.  We  had  a  nice  l late  lunch . The  visitors  got to peel  corn  for the    first  time ,  a  fun  experience. We  had  a  lovely  chat  together   and   played a  few  fun  games of  spoons,   played with a  deck of  cards  and  giant  spoons!   We  had a  few  nightcap  drinks !    My sister  made  her  Irish coffees  so good !!   Sunday  came  quick and  their last  day with us.    We  did  a bit of  chatting   after  they  had  packed  their  bags.  Then at   1pm  it  was  time  to  go to the  airport.  I  dropped  them  at   departures and had an emotional goodbye , until we  meet again .  It  was  a  fabulous   few   days and  lovely memories  made .

  1. I’m glad to hear that you made happy memories with your guests! I can imagine saying farewell was emotional. I know because it was sad to see my daughter leave after her visit and not having seen her for three years. Time and distance (and money) makes it difficult to get together as often as we’d like.

    The floral dress is a 10, I have a dress with lace at the waist.

    Enjoy the weekend!

    1. There was definitely a lot of good memories made Carmen ! It was emotional saying goodbye to my friend, and especial my sister and her husband . I am sure it was not easy to see Jean leave. I hope she makes it home soon ! Thanks for the dress rating, the lace is a fun feature to the dress. We are having a nice weekend, have a blessed Sunday Carmen , Terri xo.
