Welcome to my little world! My name is Donna and I'm the mother of one very spoiled kitty named Clarice. I was a banker for over 20 years but now I'm a SAHM and loving every minute of it. I'm a super, huge Bon Jovi fan and an avid cross stitcher. I love decorating my home with flea market finds, primitive style items and vintage items. My hubby says if the last three generations threw it out as trash it'll end up in our house as a decoration.

Way overdue post but it's gonna be short

Hi everybody and hope your summer days have been sunshine filled.  This is a very, very short post because in spite of long summer days, I never seem to find a spare minute.

I just returned Wednesday night from family vacation with my folks and 2 nieces.  Rachel graduated so her gift was a trip to Washington DC to watch the fireworks on July 4th then on to a few magical days in Virginia Beach.  We watched the fireworks from the steps of the Lincoln monument and what a magical night that was.  I'll share all the details and pictures later.
My family left yesterday and arrived home safely late last night in Arkansas.  Did I mention this was a driving trip so 5 of us crammed into my folks car along with all the "stuff" the teenage girls brought along?  They had suitcases, shoe bags which were duffel bags, makeup bags, beach bags, pillows, blankies, ect..... UGH!  I packed for the 8 days in a overnight bag and still had room to spare.

Anyway, I got back just in time to do my laundry, clean my house and love on my Clarice before Mark and I leave on Sunday for Jamaica for 10 glorious nights!  I'm only packing the overnight bag's worth of clothes but I have to take huge vats of sunscreen since this beautiful freckled skin just don't tan.  I'm so looking forward to taking this vacation to recover from the other vacation.  I just hate leaving Clarice again but Jamaica only allows animals from the UK or Ireland into the country and they must be unvaccinated....huh...go figure!

So off to start downloading many, many books to get ready to leave in the morning and I'll post more after we return.

Do something today that makes you smile my friends!
