What I've been Up To!

Hi everyone I hope you all had a good holiday, I sure enjoyed my long weekend! First off I'll show you all the pretty stuff, I bought new barstools at a consignment shop, they were from Pier One and still had the tag on them, I got them both for $70.00 and they were originally 115.00 each, so I think I did pretty darn good! I also dont think my boys can break these since they're metal, LOL, I'll keep my fingers crossed you never know with boys!I put my shabby chic covers on them that I already had.
This is my son Shayne with his sweet girlfriend Jamie, they were going to her prom, don't they make a nice couple (; She is a sweetheart! (You too Shayne)

Now on to the other side, that would be the dirty muddy side of my life, bet you would have never thought you would see me on an airboat, I do wear my pink in the Everglades but it usually comes back in a lovely shade of black(just kidding) I am not a very good boat helper, if we get stuck I'm not gettin off, and as a matter of fact right before this pic was taken we were stuck in the muckiest mud I have ever seen, but we got out with alot of help!

This pic is taken on an island out in the Everglades, there is actually a cabin with a.c. and a bathroom here, we stayed here most of the day.

When we were running away from this!!

And admiring the family of hawks that lived in the tree we were standing under, they were not to happy with us. Because of all this fun I didn't get my pantry done, it's still a work in progress but I hope to finish it soon and show you all the pic's. Have a great week!!

you are a brave woman going on that boat thing! i would be terrified the whole time of falling in the swamp! it sounds like fun though if i could get past the alligators/crocs, the snakes and all the other things that live in swamps! love the prom dress-it's gorgeous! and the bar stools-what a great deal!

Becky said...

Girl I would stay on the boat too! Dave tells me that at dusk in the canal that leads to his park there are more than 30 alligators that greet him as he is coming in from fishing....no thank you!
What a great looking couple.Your son is so handsome and Her dress is as pretty as she is. Makes a momma proud huh?

Oh my goodness Kelly you are so brave to go out where the alligators are, I would definitely stay in the boat. I am deathly afraid of snakes so if I saw one, you would have to call 911. YOU GO GIRL!! Who knew such a pink ruffly girl could go to the other side....LOL!!

Oops, almost forgot, Shayne looks dashingly handsome and I love your new stools.

those stools are very nice for the price! I love the photo of your son and his date, aren't those special times!? As far as the swamp, falling in or having to go in would scare the pop right outta me!! I've never been to Florida and never been on an airboat, but my daughter recently went and loved every minute of it! She saw a lot of alligators, so glad we don't have those here! EWW!

Brenda said...

You've been busy! You got a great deal on those stools, and I doubt they can be broken. I just love your place. I know, I say that every single time...

Lee Laurie said...

I love your new barstools! They are very pretty with your cushions in them. Your son is very handsome and his girlfriend is very pretty. They made a cute couple. I don't think that I could get in that boat! I would be so scared. You go girl!

My son is in Florida, and road an air boat a week ago in the Everglades. He said he had a blast. Aligators and all.

Have a great day.

Okay I LOVE your blog... Do your boys mind that the house is so girly? I have two boys (and a hubby) and I am slowly adding more pink and white into the house... I don't think they have figured it out yet :) Your Lulu is ADORABLE, that is my next dog breed for sure!
