Jenny's Hot Dog Bar 30th Birthday Party

Last night Megan threw Jenny a 30th Birthday Party!  We had alot of fun!!  Jenny has always loved hot dogs  and she loves poppies.  Megan combined both into her party!  The hot dog bar was such a huge success.  Here is a picture of the table Megan had:

Megan had all the topping to make every kind of hot dog you could imagine.  She and Ken printed out a list of the hot dog types (chili dogs, Chicago dog, etc.).  Very creative!  All the paper products were poppy red and in her kitchen eating area she had made tissue paper poppies, they looked awesome!  Megan had photos of Jenny all over the place from when she was a baby to the present.  She also had 30 poppy red balloons all over the place.  Megan is such a good sister!!

We had an awesome time and I doubt Jenny will forget her 30th!!!

Love you girls!!

Happy Birthday Jenny!!



Today is my baby's 30th birthday!  Where has the time gone-it has just flown on by!  Jenny is a remarkable young woman.  Mom of two boys, wife to Kevin, sister to Megan and daughter to John and I.  She had her last baby 3.5 weeks ago and she looks wonderful.  She is very artistic (painting, sewing, knitting, etc.).  Jenny is thoughtful.  She has a friend who has pancreatic cancer and she wanted to help with their medical bills so she decided to have  Tricky Tray (Chinese Auction) to raise funds for her.  Even though she was pregnant with Jack she went out and got donations and contributions for this event.   I am so glad she lives not too far away so we can see her frequently!

I hope she is having a wonderful day today!  I will be watching the boys tonight so she and Kevin can go out for dinner :).

She makes pretty babies too!

Happy Birthday Jenny-love you!!

Breakfast out, raised beds and jewelry!

Today was a busy one!  John and I had breakfast at Poppyseeds with Megan and Ken-fun as always.  It was so cold we went back to their house for tea.  Then we headed home to figure out what size raised beds we were going to make for our veggie garden.  Then off to Lowe's to buy the lumber.  We got everything we needed and then some!  A foxglove plant, Japanese Painted Fern, 2 hanging baskets for the front porch, 1 hanging fuschia plant, 2 tomato plants, 1 pak of yellow crook neck squash and zucchini squash plant.  John hung up the hanging baskets on the front porch and then the fushia on the back porch.  Then we decided to start on the raised beds.  We have one 4' x 8' box done and tomorrow we will do the second one.  John had to mow the lawn and that is why the second box isn't done.  While he was mowing the lawn, I went upstairs and made a bookmark for a customer, 1 necklace and a pair of earrings for my Mom for Mother's day and another necklace for my etsy site.  I also made the same necklace that I made for my Mom over again for my site.  Here are all the items I made:

 Bookmark for a customer
 Babette Necklace
The Sea Necklace

Tomorrow John and I will be finishing the second raised bed and then we will relax the rest of the day!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Making garden boxes this weekend!

John and I are finally going to make the raised bed boxes for our veggie garden tomorrow!  We will be going to Lowe's to get the lumber, then we will construct them, then fill will dirt and finally plant tomatoes, cukes and squash.  That is all I'm doing this year.  I hope they turn out!  I have been pinning some box directions on pinterest and a friend of mine sent me a site that I need to look at tonight.  With all the information out there, we should be able to do this!

I will take photos and post them on here sometime this weekend for all to see.  Wish us luck!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
