Old is new again

I love the 70s. If I could go back in time and be a grown up during that era, I'd do it in a heartbeat (with my iphone, of course)

Joe and I got rid if patio furniture that was falling apart. I have been googling vintage patio furniture for a few days and came up with this!

A plain metal folding chair, painted and repadded!  How cute is that?  I bought these chairs for $4!  A couple cans of paint and some material and BAM!

My second find was this step stool. My grandmother had one in her house and my siblings and me fought over who got to sit in it!  It's not identical, but I love it!

A taste of summer

We had such a good time today with friends we don't see much. We started a neighborhood crawfish boil a few years ago, and it has grown!

Each couple invited whomever and we stuff our face.  Joe sweats his hiney off, but boils the best bugs this side of New Iberia!

So many plans made for summer. It's great having teacher friends.

Hollie and I plan on hitting the golf course!
With and without Joe and Jake!

Missing Linda bc she moved to a new school, but we will walk the park in the mornings.

We started "going steady" January 19, 1985 and have been together ever since. 

I know we look like this...

But I feel like we are still....

Random Phone Dump!

Not sure what we did without camera phones, or cellphones in general.  I take pictures of everything!

My handsome hippie!
My silly boy goofing off in the hotel.

My middle and me taking a selfie!  Dad let him have a few sips of his crown, so he posed with me!

Our daily wrestling match!

Me and a coworker touring a plastics plant.

Best coworkers EVER!  Love that Michele and I have known each other for 13 years and now our families are so close.

Boys home for spring break and where to they head? The Jefferies house of course, which is fine by me.

Sleeping teens on a road trip! A lot different than screaming babies in a car seat.

Pistache humping my sister in law and my sister in law doesn't mind one bit!

My baby eating salad!  Gets that from his Momma!

Pistache staring at me with his tongue sticking out, waiting for a bite!

My tomatoes!!!!!

Mitch working hard on the lifeguard stand.

My love of 30 years!

Joe lost his glasses in my truck and I, being the Wonder Woman I am, found them!

A Tshirt I am designing for all of our feeder schools to get the youngsters excited about attending Brook!

Our non gmo/organic oat/peanut butter balls.

Something I use to remind my boys!

A dress I can't wait to receive.

Mitchy Mommy day facial!

Pistache driving us to shop!

June birthdays kill us, so we start early!  Drew wanted a basketball goal and I had a coupon that expired today. 

It took us 5 hours to assemble it but that swooshing sound is worth it!  I can't believe Spencer is about to be 21, Mitch 18, and Drew 11!  Time flies when you're raising boys.

Joe and I rewarded ourselves with beer on the back patio!
