Vacation Time

I plan a quick little post before we leave for vacation. We leave Thursday for Gulf Shores, Alabama...our favorite vacation place.

I was off work today to get things ready. I mopped the floors and straightened the house while hubby mowed. We have had a few showers but still have very little grass. I pulled weeds out of the front flower beds and re-filled the hummingbird feeders.

I have noticed two little bluebirds in the back yard the last few days. I would love to get a picture but if I even touch the door knob, they fly away.

I have been looking through pictures and found my prom photo. I do not remember much about the prom. My Aunt Lizzy made my dress as well as my wedding dress. I remember dressing at Grandma's house and my two aunts making bows for my hair. 

And that is it.


I do know I did not go to the prom with my future hubby. We dated once during high school but neither remember where we went. I have no explanation for my spotty amnesia. Except for bell bottom blue jeans, I had none of the reputed sixties lifestyle behaviors.

My image copyright dilemma may have been solved thanks to Etsy. Who knew so many lovely 1950s fashions were still around? In return for a link to their Etsy Store many have allowed me to use their photos. Here are a few TheFROCK.com has for sale. Cotillion Dresses Page

Although I will have my phone during vacation, I plan to be computerless. I may have serious withdrawal symptoms before I get home.

All take care.

  9. Your prom dress looks a lot like mine in our senior year. The one in my junior year was empire waist blue and was sleeveless with a little stand-up collar. But the second dress had the puffed sleeves and empire waist of this dress and was the same color! I went to both with my now hubby....he and I have been together a LONG time! :-) And happy that is so! Hope you have a wonderful vacation! "see" you when you get back!
