Its been a whirlwind......




This has got to be one of my busiest summers to date!!!

its all good though, lots of memories being made! :)


Just thought Id share a few pics from our recent trip in the New England states,


Cant show too much because I have to get back to the bathroom redo!


you know the one I just knew, would take me a mere day to complete! .........
(I'm rolling my eyes right now)

well this room has given me a run for my money and though I'm 95% done it will continue to take some tweaking...... I will post pictures of it in a couple of days.

But for now I will entertain you with pictures of my trip up the East Coast....

The picture above is me, hubby and little guy in front of the Breakers Mansion in Newport Rhode Island.....

If your ever there its a must see.....

The Vanderbilt's lived like royalty and the house inside was more elaborate than some castles I have toured.

The shot below was taken at the Portland Maine light house.

Just gorgeous it was everything I thought the rocky shore of Maine would look like....




Below the picture is my niece Brogan she was visiting from California and went on the trip with us....


Here she is having the Maine Lobster experience.....She wasn't impressed ....


(Can you imagine??? who doesn't love lobster)


She is a typical California health food kinda girl and doesn't eat allot of meat.


that's why her skin looks like porcelain and she is as thin as a rail!


I did get her addicted to Dunkin Donuts coffee while she was here.


A few days after she got home she would call me whimpering....


"I need my Dunkin!!! "...hee hee...


Oh well more for us!!!!!


My husband and I tried to become vegetarians one time it lasted about 3 days then we saw a billboard for a steak restaurant and that was the end of our vegetarian days....


My husband is from Argentina and their main diet is beef.


He could eat it mourning noon and night.


and yes you guessed it he is thin and low cholesterol!!!

Well im off to finish my pink frou frouie bathroom......

but before I do I have just a few more things I want to share with you.....


Ive been a very lucky girl and bestowed with some wonderful awards from some other very sweet blogging ladies who are very talented and have great blogs.....


The first one is from my Marina Capano she has a blog called.....' Only cute things'


http://wwwpurocolor.blogspot.com/


Marina has a home decorating show in Argentina and has developed a following here in the states.


She honored me with the Brilliant Weblog award........



I never thought of myself as brilliant but if Marina saids so it must be true...hee hee...

thank you Marina!

I will try to live up to this very nice award!!!
The next award I receive was from Melissa from 'Its a Charmed Life' blog

http://charmschooljewels.blogspot.com/

You must visit Melissa..... she has a website that she designs and sells the most wonderful fun charm bracelets using the most unique items.......

Ive been trying to buy one but they sell out so quickly!

Melissa bestowed upon me the Arte Y Pico
The originator of the award said that "this award is dedicated to the many who nourish and enrich the spirit and creativity of others"

I feel so honored that Melissa felt that I met that criteria and chose me to receive this award.


Again I will try my best to live up to this award......



I'm suppose to pass both of these awards onto 5 other ladies who I feel are deserving and believe me when I tell you it was a hard choice there are so many good blogs out there that have inspired me..........
but Ive narrowed it to the following blogs........

Cindy from the 'Romantic Home' http://romantichome.blogspot.com
Cindy is always working on projects in her home and sharing the how too with us.

Connie from 'Living Beautifully' http://connie-livingbeautifully.blogspot.com
I just love Connie!
She is like a breath of fresh air so funny and witty! you will love her!

Heather from 'Pretty Petals' www.prettypetals.typepad.com
Ive told you before how much I love Heather and how she has inspired me.
She is one talented girl!

Alice from 'Romantic Thoughts from Alice' http://romanticthoughtsfromalicew.blogspot.com
She has a beautiful blog and always has the most amazing photos.
She also does web design and blog work she is most talented!

Jo-Anne from 'Vintage Rose Collection" http://vintagerosecollection.blogspot.com
Jo-Annes site is one I have gone to from the beginning she is sooo talented and her work and site are beautiful one of the ones I go to for inspiration when I'm having a block.

I have to add one more because I feel she is most deserving.....
and that is Polly from Counting your blessings http://countingyourblessings.blogspot.com/
Polly has a great blog that is full of things she allows you to use to design and create your own blog. she has free banners and all kinds of downloads. check her out its a must!!

So that's it for now.
I hope to be taking pictures of the bathroom tomorrow for you all to see so staaaayyyy tuned!!
lots of hugs coming your way!
Sandy
