Last night we dropped the baby at Sister’s house and jaunted off to Six Flags for some big boy fun!!
We braved Thunder River. And it won.
We ogled the Batmobile. (Do you just adore the skull hoodie the PCP chose at Old Navy? Makes me all the happier that I took full advantage of the days of shortalls and button ons.)

We drank ice cold shots of Coca-Cola in a igloo where it was snowing inside.
And took the Mine Train like old pros.
We screamed on the Scream Machine, raced the bumper cars and more than our minds were bent on the Mind Bender. And little John was fast alseep in the car before we even hit the highway.
We’ve been to mass and now the boys have changed into their Falcons’ jerseys and retreated to the basement. It’s so quiet upstairs I could almost nap!

I’m back today with…wait for it…MORE oysters! It’s a bonafide oyster bonanza at Dixie Delights this week. (Just kidding. I promise this is the last of my oyster inspired posts for a while.) When my eyes first spied this lovely oyster lantern on the glossy and coveted pages of Wisteria, I made it one of… Read More
Seeing as I was sucked into the Pinterest fervor a couple of months ago, I’ve had ample time to dot my various boards with all sorts of pinterest-ing finds. From the baby’s impending Mickey Mouse inspired third birthday bash… …to forty-eight mouthwatering eats and drinks I hope to one day make… …there is something for… Read More
Gracing my home in the form of mirrors, candle holders, oil paintings and even wine corks, it’s no secret that I have a oyster fetish. So, I’m just over the moon with one of my newest additions to my oyster addiction…the oyster frame! Living on the coast, Mother and Daddy-O frequently enjoy the gorgeously shelled… Read More
