Breezy Beauty

I stole this from Donna's blog. Thanks and please forgive me dear. She is such a talented photographer and I knew she would have a picture that depicted how I felt today. The house is quite and clean, all the windows are open and there is a soft breeze blowing through the house, this is my favorite type of day it reminds me of my childhood. A day to ponder life, family, my many blessings and the love my Heavenly Father has for me. I hope everyone can fine some peace and happiness each day! Enjoy today!

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

I won this cute print from a friend of Donna's, she had a give away on her blog. I had to write a poem and because mine was so good I won. Just kidding I won because she is a sweetheart and gave everyone that entered one of her prints. Check out her Etsy shop here- she really has some cute prints.

A Mother's Love

Happy Mother's Day! I have a wonderful mother! She shows us all so much love, love for each of her daughters, son-in-laws, granddaughters, brothers, sister-in-laws and most of all her husband. She is one sharp snappy momma!! And we love her to infinity and beyond!!
The first picture is of my Mother, Grandmother, Uncle Ray and me
The second picture is my mother and me (she always said she would give me to the Indians if I didn't behave) I guess I believed her after that :)
The last picture is my Dad, Mom her brother Don and his wife Carol
What did I tell you she is sharp in so many ways and I am so glad she is my mother. I Love you!!!!

New Fave

It's not what you Gather, but what you Scatter that tells what Kind of Life you have Lived.

My new favorite quote, I think this might even be a front door quote. Have a wonderful day and Scatter some Sunshine in the lives you touch today!

We are so excited the girls will be home in 3 days!! YEAH! I've been texting Kelli they are so excited and gave me a list of foods they want when they come home. They're visiting Donna and Matt for a few days in Pocatello and then home here to Ohio. Kelli asked what I was doing and I told her blogging to avoid homework. [I'm such a good example] any way those girls are darn excited to be done for awhile, they love BYUI but are happy to be done with another year. I can't believe Kelli will be a Senior and student teaching next winter and our baby will be a Sophomore. How time flies. Spring should be here for the entire week next week I sure hope we don't go back to winter like weather I actually saw some tulips outside our family room window that is a beautiful sight. Here is to a complete week of warm weather.

Good Food Great Company

Last night for Family Home (or out) Evening we met my sister and her husband for dinner at Friday's. We ate some good food but the company was really the best. We sat and talked for over 2 hours it was so nice. We see each other a lot but it is usually on holidays, visiting my Dad, or Heather and I talking on the phone. It really was nice to be together and have one on one time with each other. Its what FHE is all about. I am so grateful for my family and the love we share.

Wonderful Celebrations

The day ended (this post is backwards I'll learn) with a romatic dinner with my Sweetheart before he left for work. I made surf and turf for him I just had surf (lobster tail), twice baked pot., salad, molten cakes with ice cream rasberries and whip cream. He is the love of my life and I love being able to celebrate with this special day with him, it is also the day he asked me to marry him. ♥ ♥ ♥

We celebrated Valentine Day on Saturday and started with breakfast for the women we Visit Teach. My partner Shelley is on the left and the lovely women we teach. These ladies are all so easy to love, they are fun and so very wise. I learn more from them each month they I can ever pretend to teach them. Yep that's me making Belgian Waffles, waffles, cranberry rasberry juice, strawberries and rasberries were the menu. It was a great start to Saturday.

The Breakfast table! All in all it was a fun day full of love!

From Amy with Love

O.k. this is the very first picture I took downloaded and uploaded all by myself. Yeah Me! :) Any way Amy gave me some Mexican Vanilla which I have been wanting for awhile. I love the bottle. It is delightful and really does taste different than the vanilla we get here. So here is to some major baking in the Murray house.

Thank Heaven for Sisters

So today I had a great day with my youngest sister Amy( she will kill me when she sees this picture). We had lunch then visited Dad. It's so funny he always tells me what a nice house I have, how nice I decorate it, keep it clean and he loves my windows. I just say thank you because it's easier than explaining that this is an Assisted Living and I don't own it. Well today he was telling me the same thing and Amy said "Dad this isn't her house it's mine" he thought for a minute and said no this is her house. It's so cute he might not know who we are but he thinks this beautiful place he lives in is my house. So funny. Amy showed me how to load pictures to the computer so hey maybe these posts will be a little more exciting. Thanks again for a fun day and all your help Amy!

Mad Shopping Skills

I might have a rather sorry life but I was so excited when my SIL called me about this lovely set of pans. Karen is my own personal shopper :) she was at JCPenney outlet today and called me about this sweet set. I have been looking for a 6 qt. pan and the best I could do was about $38 well she found this set priced at $240 on sale today at the outlet for $50 minus 25% so bottom line $37.50 tax title and out the door. I love that outlet and my SIL for her mad shopping skills.

They're Leaving on a Jet Plane

This is what it felt like sending the girls back to school today! We took them to the airport and stayed until they boarded, about 40 minutes later we got a text saying they were still on the runway. Yeah! They had only 50 minutes between connecting flights and we were 2 hours away from a computer to track anything. Yeah and a big thanks to my sister Amy she saved the day, got on tracker and kept us informed and calm. They made their connecting flight with only a few minutes to spare. Soon they will be back into the swing of another semester we will be readjusted to an empty nest and all will be well.
