Simple Man

This is my quote on my hall chalkboard. You have to walk by it to get to the laundry room, so we pass it everyday, often more than once. The boys and I love Lynard Skynard and particularly this song. So, with all the changes going on around here, I thought this was an encouraging and inspiring quote.

Hog Heaven

Heading out today to attend orientation at the University of Arkansas with my middle son. I can't believe he starts college in August. Before I know it my youngest will be graduating.

Ballards Love

I received my June Ballards Design catalog yesterday, and I have two things I am just in love with. I have been waffling back and forth on getting these panels and think I have decided to try them in the black.
I also am in love with this lamp base, which at $59 is a pretty good price. I would love it with a bright floral print on the shade.

Well, off to make cookies. We go through dozens of them on the weekends with all the kids here boating. Have a great weekend.

American Summer

I had to go to the Walmarts today to restock after a weekend filled with hungry teenagers. While shopping I just happened to see the cutest red, white and blue drink dispenser. I try every year to buy a couple of red, white or blue items to add to my collection. A friend got me started about 5 years ago. It looks really good with my tray I bought last year at WM and the utensil holder that started it all. All the metal pieces are only $10, so great price!
