feelin' the love...

and feelin' a little better:)


thank you, loves, for your well wishes!!!

(katherine in destin 1996)

over the past 5 days, i have accomplished very little (other than damaging the bank account) here on the lane. if not at my fingertips, it has not been completed, ha!!!

speaking of "at my fingertips", it is quite scary what a girl can do with her laptop, the internet, and her credit card, NO???

since saturday morning...

*i have organized a vacation*

given that john has taken a new job within his company, he told me to take katherine to florida without him for her break next month. he is going to be swamped at work!!! therefore, i got online and found a perfect condo on the beach in destin, florida where my brother, katherine, chico, maggie and i will be relaxing for a whole week in april. my brother nor chico has ever been to florida. (and, if anyone is wondering... those two will be sharing bunk beds, lol;)

as this is kind of last-minute, i was thrilled to find an available place on the beach and especially one where i can take my maggiepie!!! my brother usually keeps her when we are out of town.

anyway, we are really looking forward to the sun, sand, and ocean!!!

and...

*i have shopped*

the prom and the military ball are almost at hand.
thus, katherine expressed a need for a new bathing suit...

"what does one have to do with the other???"
you may be wondering...

well, one of her dresses is haltered, and the other is strapless,
so, she needs a bandau (strapless) bikini so as not to have tan-lines.

last night, i found and ordered her two suits.

further, she NEEDED some new shorts:?
i ordered those as well.

WHEW, kitty katherine should be set, now, for spring and summer!!!

~@~@~@~@~@~

all in all, that's what i've been doing these past few days.
(well, "that" plus sneezing, coughing and blowing my nose:/)

~@~@~@~@~@~

are you going on a trip for spring (fall in australia, huh) break???
are you there now???
have you already been???

if so, i hope you safely enjoyed/are enjoying/will enjoy it:D

love and God's blessings,
dani xx

Amanda said...

Ohh, you are so lucky going to Florida ~ wish i could come too!
I haven't seen or felt warm sunshine since our summer break in Canada a couple of years ago now lol!!

I'm afraid for our Easter break will be spent in sunny Scotland (hear the sarcasm? LOL!) As long as it stays dry for a few days, i will be happy!

Don't you just love internet shopping?!

I'm so glad you are feeling better now. Give Maggiepie a cuddle from me.

Love,

I hope you have a bunch of fun!

I am just packing my suitcase.....please do not go without me ~ I am sure that I can get over to Kentucky before you leave!!
I need sunshine, I need a break ~ I need a beach......
I promise not to wear a bikini and scare you ha ha !!
We have got nothing planned here ~ we have a long weekend at Easter when we may go and visit family ~ but nothing else planned apart from that!!
I know that you will have a wonderful time (and yes, I am jealous ha ha !!)
Love and big hugs Tab XXXX

Hi Dani

Online shopping is so much fun, then there is the anticipation of the parcels arriving in the mail (which is also exciting). I love browsing online (so much easier than taking Savvy and Blakie to the shops with me). We organised our last holiday online and it was perfect.

We are not going away over the Easter break. Autumn here is perfect weather for going to parks, having picnics and lots of outdoor painting.

Dani, I hope you are feeling fully recovered again soon, but in the meantime keep giving that credit card a workout. Retail therapy is bound to make you feel better, plus the fact that we are thinking of you my friend.

Lots of love and hugs
Elise

Last thing I heard, Maggie was naming little Rousseau, Johnny (after Mr. Cash himself;). But, I don't think it's in stone yet.

I've study some of his writings, but nothing too in depth. Philosophy and philosophers oddly fascinate me, whether it be someone such as Plato or even Karl Marx. Just the way these people think is pure genius. haha

And, yes! I'm so glad to be getting near being finished with this work. But, next week I get a whole new load :/ Fuuuuun fun.

Hannah

You guys are gonna have fun, fun, fun! I can't wait to read all about it and see all of the great pictures you'll take.

We usually go to Hawaii each year so that will be our nice big vacation. We missed it last year due to Jake and his accident/surgery. We won't miss it this year that's for sure! Aloha!!

MoziEsmé said...

Glad you're feeling a little better! We've been recovering from sniffles here, too. Though no definite vacations to Florida in sight - what fun!

How fun!!!! I'm heading to Jax to spend some time with the twinnies soon! Look out Florida! Here come Dani B. and Mrs. Maverick! Think they can handle us? ;) I hope you had fun with your retail therapy!

Glad you are feeling better!!!

You have been busy internet shopping, huh?!

Your trip sounds amazing ;)

SuzanSayz said...

Wow, it sounds so fun.
Sorry I have not commented for a while. I have been too busy to do any blogging at all. And not so much BUSY, busy, more like really bad time management.
Have I ever mentioned how irresponsible I can be?

Cristin@Serendipity said...

Sounds like you've been very productive! :)
...I'm looking forward to SPRING BREAK...and some R&R! Hope you are feeling better soon...

Lisa said...

You are going to the beach! Oh the fun! I have been craving a nice relaxing day at the beach.....but it's not in the works for a few more months...

{love that pic of Katherine!}

Do you have this in pink? said...

How exciting, My sister went to Florida a yr ago and just loved it. We're going to Bali in about 10 days and I'm just so excited, my entire family is going, 12 of us in all, can't wait.
K seriously needed those new bathers, there's no way she can go to a prom with tan lines! I love her thinking. She really is a doll was as a little girl and still is, your so lucky D, until Kitty came along I never realised just how amazing it would be to be blessed with a daughter.
Hope that sniffles better,
Em

I'm glad to see you are feeling a bit better now. Knowing that I'd be in Florida soon would make me feel better anytime ;)

I hope you guys have a great time!

Love,
