Yay the sun is shining and it’s early, way to early to be up. Husband forgot his phone, so yes I had to get up and let him in to get it. At least he didn’t miss the bus so I didn’t have to drive him to the train.
Still getting my bearings back from the road trip and yesterday I got all new windows. So you know how it is when you are walking over workman all day. You get nothing done but the windows look amazing and I love, love, love my home. Like Dorothy said, “There’s no place like home!!!” Now onto redecorating the remaining spaces, Kitchen, Dining and Living Room and the Guest Bedroom ❤ . Hope to have it all done by the holidays. I’ll be posting pics so stay tuned. We were going to move, but we hate moving and we really love where we are right now. It’s simple and easy ❤ So we are staying put ❤ .
Here are somemore pics of our youngest getting married. It was a beautius wedding and she was a stunning bride !!! It definitely was what every mother & father hopes and dreams about for their children. I say, “Thank You,” for the privilege of being Connie’s (Connor’s) mom. He is every parents dream child. Actually they both have been such a blessing (son Matthew/The Best Man) ❤ .
Connie was so touched seeing and feeling the love from his big brother, Matthew. He said to me, “I caught Matthew crying, no way he can deny it now 😉 .” I was pretty much crying through the entire ceremony. Here’s some really great pics ❤ Enjoy ❤
Welcome to our family, Melissa #frainsthename #frainforever ❤ .
I can’t end this post w/o mentioning are friend’s who also made the trip out east with us. These guys are the real deal when it comes to friends. We have been on this journey together, happy times and sad, good and not so good, for 40 years !!! Yes 40 years and as everything is posted now #bestfriendsforever, #wearefamily . We will love you both for the next 40 😉 . Thank you for sharing this special day with us ❤ .
I guess the husband’s didn’t get the memo when the photographer told us let’s take a funny picture, #toocoolforschool…I know, I’m old but I still have a great time, #agreatlife and I love blogging. It’s almost Friday, Y A Y !!! Let’s have a great day ❤ . Oh yes one more thing, the husband painted the, “Happily Ever After” announcement picture that was set up at the Reception Venue ❤ .
Back home from a long, long road trip but it was great !!! I’ll save that for tomorrow. Today’s prompt for Song Lyric Sunday is truck/bus/lorry… Like I said I was just on the road for what seemed like forever and I’m a big fan of trucks. The husband is a great driver, he’s so safe. He gets behind one of those big 18 wheeler’s and basically follows him home. Riding in back of the trucker is the safe haven for us on the road. Here is today’s song…It’s Roll On (Eighteen Wheeler) by Alabama.
This song was going through my head the whole way there and back. It’s a great road tripping tune ❤ and me and the husband sing a lot when we are on the road.
Happy Song Lyric Sunday blogger’s. The weekends fly by as they always do and today’s just about the last day of September. Today also is the husband’s Bday…Happy Birthday Husband. Sorry I digress…back to Song Lyric Sunday. This week’s theme is “Train Songs.”
This is a great one since I come from a long line of railroader’s (is that even a word 😉 ) My dad had a career with the Illinois Central Gulf Railroad in Chicago where he retired from, RIP. I worked for the railroad in Chicago for the ICG’s electric line in Randolph Street Station (under the Prudential Building) before my days of a SAHM 🙂 . I was an Administrative Assistant to the Chief of the Electrical Engineer. Best boss I ever had, again RIP !!!!
This was the first song I thought of when I saw the prompt. When me and the husband were dating and he was in college at Northwestern University in Evanston we saw Steve Goodman live in concert (gone too soon). This is a song he wrote. I remember my dad singing this song too. Always loved to listen to dad when he sang ❤ .
