Super Saturday #14

Hurray for Super Saturday #14…

Beautiful things, exciting things, inspiring ones…I’ll share with you those things that bring me joy and make me happy!

 

Here are three things that make me happy:

 

1) at the rehearsal dinner, an amazing, beautiful letter for Scott from Lauren…it touched everyone’s heart…as she gave him his wedding ring for the ceremony (if you want the story, let me know)  :)

Scott reading his letter...

 

emotional Lauren watching him...

2) yesterday was our Out-of-Towners’ BBQ….held in Chad and Shannon’s back yard for Scott and Lauren

very popular:)

with Lauren's grandparents

end of the evening with a tired puppy!

 

We had hot sun and bright skies, then clouds came in….and, in perfect timing, at the very end of the night, the skies opened up and it POURED for hours! We’re all assuming that was to get it out of the way for a more important day!!!

3) The most exciting of all…. today is the day of the wedding!!

These two are lovely together, and I couldn’t be happier or more honored to be the one to make them husband and wife!!

Memories of Put-in-Bay

So….a bachelor party at Put-in-Bay???  No, not Scott’s…but he did attend one recently. It brought back some memories of the great fun we used to have when we took our boat and spent the night at the Crews’ Nest Marina. We toured the island, swam in the pool, and enjoyed sleeping on the boat…conveniently named Freddie and the Dreamers!

Scott would have had this look long ago when figuring out what the partiers were doing at the main marina…

But at that time we were having our own party!!

Both on the boat and off!

Memories of great times…always wonderful!!

Today I appreciate 2 special animals who make me happy:

You have met both of them before…

The cat: before and after the ‘coming of the dog’

before, just relaxing

and after, keeping an eye out...

and then, the puppy, visiting:))))

hi, everyone!!

pretty puppy....

I love recipes also ….both old and new:

Our favorite spaghetti salad…

lots of good stuff in there

looks good, huh?

and then a new one…the easiest ever cobbler

any kind of fruit, dry cake mix, and 7Up!!

And always….SUNSHINE!!
