still resting, reflecting, nesting, thinking,
and all of the other things I said I needed to take time to do.
I'm re-reading all of my Shabby Chic books...
and getting inspired all over again!
And I'm hanging out with my girls...
eating ice cream cones,
watching our favorite shows,
planning our summer,
planning bedroom re-dos
(and school, of course:-)
Just hanging out.
And it feels sooooo good.
Or it did.
Now for the "ouch" part...
Friday morning, I packed my shabby chicks in the car
and went to the beach.
How perfect is that?
We needed some bonding time.
A bit of Vitamin D.
And I have a new project that involves seashells so...
It was a gorgeous day...
I found the shells...
Read a little of my book...
Sipped some sweet tea...
...and got WHACKED in the face by a flying umbrella.
It was such a calm day.
A cloudless sky and no wind to speak of...
until the freaky gust of wind picked up that umbrella and...
well, you know.
I sat there stunned.
It hit me so hard and so suddenly.
As I sat with my face in my hands,
I felt something dripping on my legs.
My poor girls...
Nice day at the beach and suddenly Mom has a bloody face.
One CT scan and a few stitches later...
and I look marvelous.
Only one problem...
we had a Ball to go to on Saturday night.
It was the Heart Ball...and of course I had a red dress.
to match my face:-)
Hey...it made for great dinner conversation.
So next time you decide to go to the beach.,
don't worry about the sharks...
or sand crabs.
Look out for those flying beach umbrellas!!!
I've missed my shabby little blog.
For those of you who don't know me well,
let me tell you one word that describes me...
Or maybe easily bored.
Because I'm ready to start changing up my blog again.
I know, I know...that is sort of taboo if you don't want to lose people.
But it's kind of like only having one style your whole life.
Or saying your favorite color is blue just because it's always been that way.
Go ahead...say you like orange now or if you're like me...
But I'm not sure what to do so please stay tuned.
In the meantime,
I am trying to visit my followers.
All 555 of them!
Isn't that amazing???
I am going to admit something really bad here.
I bet I haven't been in touch with 455 of them.
I tried to keep up but it just got away from me.
So before I come back to my blog full time,
I need to make time for these wonderful people.
I'll be seeing you...
