Random Tuesday: Fun-Filled Week!

Tuesday, October 20, 2015

Happy Random Tuesday, My Lovelies!!!  We've had a wonderful week of autumn fun.

1.   We visited the Mt. Laurel Fall Festival.  Here are a few of the scarecrows on display:

Lucky Dog Grooming sponsored this scarecrow.

This one if from Mr. Harry's Chickin De-Lux.  No, this is not a typo!

2.   Finlay loved the dog park!

Shelley and Finlay enjoying one of our gorgeous October days

3.   We visited a model home at Mt. Laurel.  I loved the master bathroom and kids' study best!  This year Mt. Laurel will host the Southern Living Magazine's idea house.  They will break ground on it soon!

Got to *love* the tilework

Reclaimed wood on the walls...

3.   Have any of you heard about the new NOOK readouts?  Check it out!  I'm enjoying reading the blurbs.

4.   Happy 23rd Birthday to my #1 daughter, Shanley Belle!  I am so proud of the woman you've become.

Shanley Belle reading to Shelley.  She was helping Shelley with her SLP (speech language pathology).  Now, Shanley is in a graduate program for communicative disorders, and is working on a dissertation that will enable her to earn her PhD.

5.   Shelley and I are preparing for the Witches' Tea Party @ A Fanciful Twist, so this is the last post until Literary Friday.  Saturday we'll be busy visiting everyone's party.  It should be fun!

Until next time...

  1. What a great place to visit. Love the beautiful home tour and also the scarecrows are adorable.
    Shelley and Finlay are too cute too.
    Have a great rest of the week.

  2. Such an interesting post! It's so wonderful that your daughters inspire each other. It's neat that you might be able to visit and idea house. In regards to your last post, I have not read anything scary, but someone lent my daughter a mystery, so I might get to it. I placed it by the daybed, and the laundry is in the same room. :) xoxo

  3. Gorgeous home tour! I love that bathroom.

  4. Ricki, your daughter's a cutie . I love the reclaimed wood on the walls. I like to see headboards made of it also. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  5. Happy Birthday to your sweet daughter. Look how reading to her sister probably changed (or shaped) the course of her life. Isn't that wonderful?!?!!!!
    Scarecrows are comical-they always make me smile and I love the picture in the doggy park. xo Diana

  6. Oh- Forgot- That is a fantastic house, too!

  7. What a fun time! The scarecrows are adorable, but it's the photo of those two cuties reading that warms my heart. Happy Birthday to Shanley Belle!

  8. Sweet photos of your daughter's.
    And Finlay too. :-)

  9. I like the look of that bath, just saying,

  10. Your daughters are adorable together! Happy Birthday to Shanley! Love that house - the walls are amazing!

  11. Your daughters are so cute. It is wonderful that Shanley found her passion at such an early age.

  12. Happy Bday to your daughter too! Hope she had a good one!
