Back Home....

Last Wednesday we went to Joplin to spend Thanksgiving with our daughter and her family.  Of course the day was filled with fun and lots of yummy food.

This year our oldest granddaughter will not be coming home this Christmas because she'll spend it with her fiance's family.   So I took her Christmas snuggle quilt to her so I could give it to her in person.   Now that she's seen it I can show it here.    Yeah she loved it!   (I had to giggle when I saw this pic with her peeking over the top).

Jessi & Grant's wedding will be next Oct and she wanted to wait until I came down so I could share the dress hunt with her & her mom.   See the little pink paper heart in the center/top of the picture.  Behind those mirror doors is her dressing room.  It didn't take long at all.  #4 was The One!!  She looked so beautiful!!

The next day Deb had scheduled a pedicure & manicure for us.  Believe it or not but I have never had either one before.  I've always done my own nails and have never polished my toes.  How Fun.  Made a believer out of me.  haha  I will absolutely have both again.   First was the pedicure then came the manicure.  What a sweet little gal that worked on me.  
BTW.... see my feet?  Those are called flip flops now.  NOT thongs!  (As those of us of a certain age used to call them).  I cracked everyone up as my daughter corrected me.  LOL  
Now we're back home and I'm starting to get back into the groove.  Spent yesterday doing a bit of cleaning.  Then back to my studio to sew on a binding.  One more binding to do today and I'll be ready to get all the snuggles washed and wrapped for Christmas.  

It's been a wonderful week.   Glad you stopped by.....Linda


  1. I've never had a pedicure or manicure either. And they are still thongs to me as well, but guess that does have a much different connotation these days. LOL

    1. hahaha Yes it certainly does Mary. I tried talking my way around my comment.... but Deb kept insisting I call them flip-flops. Such a fuddy duddy my daughter is. LOL

  2. Welcome back! Sounds like you had a GREAT time! Picking out a wedding dress - what fun! And I call then thongs, too! Like the song says - "I miss back when a hoe was a hoe and a Coke was a coke". I think that BOB might have kept insisting that Deb call them thongs - because what they call a thong today is really not a thong at all - haha - ;))

    1. Thanks Kitty. Oh yes I did have a super great time. And maybe BOB could have gotten away with it but I tried and kept everyone hootin' and hollerin' and lost. hahaha Like that song.


I try to always reply back to anyone that takes their precious time to comment on my blog so I sure hope you have your email enabled.
Thanks for stopping by and
I hope you're having a great day....Linda
