  1. What a great post! Love this. The pictures of you show a fun loving and beautiful woman. I know what you mean about wishing you had seen The Hurt Locker. Me too. Also a Jeff Bridges fan!! It looks just like you are handing each of the flower. Awesome. Yes, I had a wonderful weekend. And I intend to have a terrific week as well.

  6. I wish I did! I was dealing with two sick toddlers while being sick myself.

    Today, however, we were able to get out for a stroll in the spring temps.

    Mine was packed with a fancy party, too much food and a long night on the sofa with Oscar!

    Hope your week is good. It looks like things are warming up in your neighborhood.

  11. Oh Beth, you are such a wonderful gorgeous, caring gal. I love you had such a great weekend. I am a Jeff Bridges fan. i did not know he had been married for 33 years. that makes him more secy to me as that is a miracle in Hollywood. I also wish I had seen the hurt locker. Gottas run, the sun is still shining. have a great day.

  14. My two youngest sons arrived in Atlanta on Friday, with their ladies - Alex's finace and Jeremy's girlfriend. First, we visited my mom at her nursing home in Atlanta, an incredible place with NO odor of urine!! Then we drove to Columbus and went out to dinner with my friends. Saturday, my brother drove down with a truck and we loaded up the things from Mom's apartment that we wanted to keep. My sister barbecued that night. Sunday, we all trekked back over to the nursing home where my mom seemed in much better spirits and was hugged and teased by her towering grandsons. I took them to the airport for their flight home, happy that they had cared enough to come, in spite of my asking them not to do so!

  15. These are great! Was Mr. John home?! You're so darned cute!

    Yes, I was wishing all those things, too -- and lapping up that sun like it was an open bag of chili lime Tostitos and no one was around!
