A week in the life of a Princess…..

Last week will be in my memory forever as one of the best weeks I have spent with my little princess – Callie. Her parents took Drew to Cars land and Disneyland to celebrate his 4th Birthday. They felt Callie was too young to hold up to the fun filled days they would have and so I got to have her all to myself for 4 whole days. WE had so much fun and I as told Josh and Erica she is such a sweet little girl – such a sweet spirit she has.And I will just say her parents have done an amazing job teaching her to always say thank you and Please- I was most impressed. Our days were full playing princess as she walked around the house saying “Princess Callie” with her little arms spread out wide. I wish I had a video to show you just how cute that was

Her Meme sent her a special package- princess shoes and oh did she love those! Her first little high heels! It took some getting use to walking in them, as it was for all of us girls.


We colored a lot and she went to the beauty shop with me to see Holly and she loved the pearls.


It makes a princess tired to rule her kingdom and she is the best thing about going to bed and taking naps – a great excuse for me to join in!  And finally she watched me monogram and loved playing with the notions in my sewing room. I dream of her loving to sew some day?! Boy could I give her some great sewing toys!


Thanks Josh and Erica for sharing your sweet sweet girl with Grammy. I miss her already! Don’t ya’ll need another trip?

My fun Summer Vacation….

My summer is almost over…. I can always tell when my sister gets a little more stressed and the time she has for my silliness is over! Back to school for her and back to the real world for me. Summer is my favorite time of year! You know when the living is easy and everyone kind of slows down and takes life slow. I have had a very nice summer – more than I deserve for sure. I made a list at the first of summer the places I wanted to go this summer and I got to everyone of them.

First my trip to Glorietta/ Santa Fe-

Then my business trip/vacation to Washington DC-

And the last trip I took was for my soul -

A trip to Dallas to see my dear dear friends – The Links and their new home.

I had such a great time catching up and visiting with some of my oldest friends – I have known the two of them for 40 years! WOW!!

On Saturday we went out to McKinney – We ate lunch and shopped of course!

I visited my favorite booth- Ella Elaine -and saw the cutest things – she is GOOD! I especially liked her sign “Molly B’s CafĂ©”!  We ate lunch in a darling Tea Room called Gather – don’t you love the name.

When I got Home it was time to check out the Splash park with this one -



Drew had a blast and laughed non stop- Callie not so sure -

Next up on the end of summer fun?

4 days with this one – my little princess


The rest of her family is going Here!





           But most important – Cars Land

                Drew is going to LOVE this!


This is perfect for a little boy that says his name is Lightning half the time! I just wish I could be a fly on the wall to see his face!

I have been so excited for Callie and I to have our first girls weekend together. I have planned all kinds of Princess things for us to do and to keep her mind off of her missing her” DEW” (drew). Wish me luck friends – it has been a while since I kept up with a 2 year old for several days.

Just a few more days of summer living…..
