Pink Tomato Festival

Last night we took Drex to the Pink Tomato Festival. If you've ever heard of Bradley county tomatoes that us what the festival is about. Its been going on for years, hubby said he remembers going when he was the same age as Drex and that was......well a few years ago!

Drex wanted to ride everything. He rode the rides all by himself except for the merry go round. I was scared he would fall off when it started going up and down so I rode with him. His papa videoed us you can heart Drex laughing so hard. I think I enjoyed it almost as much as he did!

He seen the screamer and wanted on it....I don't even get on that crazy thing.

We are going to Silver Dollar City in a couple weeks and watching him enjoy his self so much last night let's us know he's going to like SDC.

Before going I wanted to say thanks to every one who entered the Shabby Apple giveaway! I really appreciate it

Are you and your family going on vacation this year? Where are you going? Is really like to know. :)

Glimpses of where I come from.....

I thought I'd take some pictures of the area I live in and post them on here.

I think I live in a beautiful state and can find so many things that are peaceful to me.

Bales of hay all lined up in a field, a lone deer grazing in another field or even a grown up area that has potential.

I'd love to see the country side or city of where you live!

RELATIVELY CLOSE by Judy Serrano *book review*

Recovering from the latest family trauma has made the Montiago family wake up to the fact that their priorities have definitely been misplaced. With Max throwing himself into the depths of his work as an FBI operative, he inadvertently sends the wrong message to his wife and brothers. In Relatively Close, the third book of the series, Lilly fights for the attention of her husband, until it becomes painfully clear that she is up against a mistress way more powerful than the ones she has fought before. Keeping it relatively close is something with which Lilly is way too familiar. She turns her attentions to another, only to find out that the reality of the business, which has kept her dripping in diamonds and living in mansions, is nothing more than an ugly reminder of El Diablo anda suelto: The devil running loose.

My Review

This is the third book in this series by Judy Serrano and I'm still wanting more! This book picks up where Brother Number Three left off and Lilly is still just as confused! I think that's why I like her so much....I can relate... to the confusion, not all these brothers head over heels in love with her!

I'm not even sure who I want Lilly with!

Thank you Judy Serrano for another fabulous book.... eagerly awaiting the next one!

I also wanted to mention (pats self on back) That Judy Serrano has a quote from me on the COVER of the book! YAY! I was so excited to see that. Thank you!!

I highly recommend this book...just be sure to read the first two before you read this one.


I was given this book for my honest opinion, no other compensation was received.

I really hate that I look goofy in hats. I see so many Id love to make and wear. I've been super busy making them for other people though. Above....where ever blogger droid inserted my pictures are some I've made recently. The lil pink one is the first I've made with a brim around it. Its going to a special little girl who is turning one. The puppy I made for Drex not to long ago, the gray with flower is for sale, its a tester so its marked down and the flip flops are mine!
Of course I couldn't leave a Recent pic of Drex out. Hes getting so big. He wanted to take Mickey home with him. Looks terrified in this pic but its just because that mouse had a big head and it was hard for him to get a grip on Drex.
I'm not even sure how many of you are even still reading my blog...when I post, but thanks for hanging in there.

Please keep my cousin Kathy in your prayers. Its been over a month now since any one has heard from her. (The story is in previous post)
