Happy Anniversary to us!

May 15 was our 27th wedding anniversary. We had never ever had a vacation by ourselves, so we decided this was our year.

Always wanting to go to the Florida Keys thats what we did. We stayed at Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key.
What a nice place!!!! Rooms there start at 149.00 a nite so how can you go wrong for a resort?

We drive up and wow its pretty. Lots of flowers and foliage, well maintained.
Get to our room and again WOW

The bed

The bathroom

The view from the balcony

The week we went seems to be the start of rainy season but thats ok, the temps were down and we got to do most everything we wanted except for a keys sunset.

This was the sunset we caught on our last night while having a spectacular dinner at Alma on the patio of the hotel. The sunset may not have been what we were wanting but oh that food was beyond!! It was also the most expensive meal for 2 we had ever had!

For a great beach (we were told the keys had no good beaches) go to Bahia Honda State Park. 6.00 for 2 to get in.

haha me at the beach unheard of!!

Rob loves the beach

We did go fishing which was the one thing Rob wanted to do. It was a nasty rainy morning which turned into a bright sunny morning. We caught a bunch of grunt, snapper, trigger fish. Nothing really worth keeping for us to take back and have someone cook so we gave them away.

Many more pictures are on my flickr if you would like to look.

As always the best part of vacationing is getting home to your own bed!

Visitors this week

This week has been a busy one in the neighborhood. While out watering the flowers these are the creatures I saw

Ok so the picture isnt very clear best I can do with my cheapie camera and a moving bird.

This guy was sooooooo noisy, or I wouldnt have seen him up there.

This frog was plastered to the door last night as I went to let the dog out. Needless to say the dog had to wait till the frog was gone.

Finally finished!

Well it took me nearly 5 months but the baby quilt I made for my nephews new baby is finally in the mail.
I hung it on the wall to take pix and then well, it was hard to take that down it came out so great.

Of course and as usual I found a mess up while looking at my pix, I guess I was thinking about when he was born and not when I completed the quilt for my quilt label.

I need to thank my friend Karen for machine quilting this for me. Check out her fine quilting at her etsy shop

What a great week.

My week started out pretty good by finding out I won a prize in the giveaway at PIGATOPIA STUDIO'S
I won this awesome little finger puppet donated by weeknit

Then Nicole called me and was all excited because she put one of her pieces up for sale in a gallery.

Just a quick cell phone pic but you can get the idea.

Theeeeeeeeeen Blockheadradio was having one of their Stinkin' Awesome giveaways and I was the first caller in and won a Stinkin' Awesome bracelet from Elegance by Mode Check out her blog

I am a very happy mama!!!
Thank you everyone for making my week great.
