We spent Saturday running errands for our get together with our daughter and her family, her Guy, Cordell and his mom GiGi and of course the granddaughters !!! Everyone is just growing up so fast. Here are some pics of the family ❤ We love you all to the moon and me and GiGi dressed the same right down to our jewelry and we didn’t even coordinate it that way. We are truly one brain 😉 .

The food was amazing…We did the BBQ with out of this world grill packets filled with all sort of yummy food. Shrimp, Chicken, potatoes, veggies…So good and Mr. Cordell did an amazing job on the grill !!!!

Time to get my summer on because before you know it, it’s 4th of July and the summer is over Mr. Nightlinger 😉 Three birthdays, Matthew/June, Connor/July, Me, Lizzie, & Missy/August and throw in an anniversary and the summer just flies by. Add a vaca somewhere, not quite sure where yet, but yes I think the summer really is over.

Just kidding 😉 Be safe and enjoy the summer ❤ Blessings from Scarlett ❤ .

Happy Sunday…Almost time for dinner w/the family !!!

Going over to the daughter’s home for dinner !!! On the menu for today are grilled foiled bags with shrimp, chicken and all kinds of other yummy stuff. I’m bringing Baked Beans, Snicker Apple Salad, and a quick trip on the way to small cakes for dessert…I’m getting hungry 😉

I have to admit the Smallcakes almost didn’t make it there in tack…Thankfully they gave us a free one so Grampapa & me, Grandmama got our sugar high w/o digging into the dozen 😉 .

Dinner is almost served….Y U M ❤ …

Happy Tuesday…

I can’t believe I haven’t posted since last week. Just big blogging goal’s, I was even working on my editorial calendar (which is still a work in progress 😉 ) . It’s just gotten very busy around here all of the sudden like and I really haven’t had the time to blog. I’m busy with my spring cleaning, and I was so hoping I would have it all done by Memorial Day but that sure doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.

My Spring Cleaning has really turned into a new thing. Instead of cleaning, (which I’m not that fond of anymore, been there, done that) it’s turned into Spring Buying 😉 and Spring throwing away 🙂 … Shhh let’s keep the husband out of that. Let’s just say that my Target trips are my new workout 😉 . Don’t laugh, it’s a lot of working walking and buying and carrying it to the car, unloading, yadayadayada !!! But the house is really coming together. It’s fresh and new. I’ve been taking before and after pics and I’ll try posting them when I’m all done.

My absolutely fav of all are the new shelves in the kitchen…

My new shelves ❤

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to come up with this idea. I just love, love, love my kitchen. What motivated me was the spring cleaning thing and the new book I was reading this month…I have really been on a reading kick this year. I have already read 4 books this year. Which is a really great thing. The first book I read, our Connor and his wife Missy bought me this one, “Where the Crawdads Sing.”

Connor &Missy ❤

Aren’t they just such an adorable couple…Love them to the moon ❤ One of my favorite pics of them on their Wedding Day ❤ .

Then I went on with the next 3. I’m thinking the Cookbook Club spurred me on to get the shelf thing going in my kitchen. One thing led to another and I’m back doing something I absolutely love, love, love to do…Cooking and Baking, who knew.

The daughter came over on Mother’s Day and she just had to do the same thing, so me and her dad were over at her house last weekend. Got to do another run to Target and the husband was busy assembling them at her house. She’s having the same fun I’m having b/c of course I had to get her the Instapot for her Mother’s Day gift to go on the shelves, right 😉 … Here how her shelves are progressing ❤ Absolutely loving this !!!
