Endless Summer Vacation! Yippee!!

Nothing better than summer at the beach.......  nothing! Warm days, sand between your toes, salty sea air and gorgeous, glorious sun! Temps have been mid 70's , soft breezes it's time to break out my favorite things to do! yep SCOOTERS!! So much freaking fun!!!
 The red is my hubbies and the vintage looking blue is mine!

with 26 miles of fresh water canals , 2 lakes, the bay and the ocean  to check out I could ride all day long!  

With 3 birthdays and the 4th of July within a few days of each other we had celebrations galore! Most memorable was Christian's our grandson who is now a teenager ! 

we enjoyed a DAY OF CHRISTIAN starting with chili cheese omelets in the morning. Lunch at the RED GENIE PIZZA yummy best pizza the crispy crunchy boneless wings too!

Then off to the beach to set off fireworks!  The fun continues!

Must show you my new kitchen curtains that I made!

Newest  Knock off !
Joss & Main had these same curtains for $65.00 for the 2 panels which I ordered then kept getting emails from them that they were back ordered 2 months later still no curtains . 
I do not handle waiting well. I searched and searched for these curtains to no avail.  Finally a search for Sea friends fabric brought me to  
For $8.49 a yard I was able to make these same curtain!  Saving over $50.00 !!! woo hoo!

another picture of them! and my husband handy work my newly tiled back splash and marble tile counters.... I so love them!
