7 Quick Takes (Vol. TGIF!!)

5 Sep

7 Quick Takes Friday

1. My trusty steed is back!!  My car made it out of the shop.

While my car was out of commission, I borrowed FOUR vehicles.

My family is tres genereux!

2. This week has been long.  I know we just had Labor Day, but still.  This week has been long.  TGIF!!!!

3.  A while back I mentioned my flower patch.  And do you recall how I mentioned that I planted marigolds, lavender and xenias?  Well, SOMEHOW (?????) my lavender has grown into sunflowers????  Don’t ask me how that happened, but imagine my dissapointment.  I was SOOO.  SOOOOOO excited that the lavender from seed was growing for me.  And you know what the lavender did?  It just up and changed flowers on me.  LOL. Golly. Here is proof to show you the packets that I planted from:


And here is a picture of what grew from each packet:


(marigolds, BIG YELLOW SUNFLOWERS and xenias.  GEEEPPERSSS!!!)

4. This is my little brother’s dog, affectionately called “small fry.”  She always jumps into the front and center of all the action, especially when food is involved.  No, she does not eat meals with the family 😉


5. My sisters and I, with the help of the men in our family, have been busy replacing some windows on our house.  Here is part of the project:


6.  Earlier this summer one of my friends who is a hairstylist came over and did my make-up, nails and hair for me before I went ballroom dancing.  She is a gem!  Look at the way she twisted the hair into a fishtail braid.  So much talent in that girl!     I need to learn how to do my hair like this!



7. My friends Laura, Kacie and I on vacation this summer.  I’m so blessed to have such amazing, inspiring friends!


Have a beautiful weekend, my friends!

    Yay for having your trusty steed back! That’s completely wacko about the flowers . . . did the seeds seem big like sunflower seeds? I’ve never heard of that happening! And your hair is super cute. Yay life!

      Actually the seeds were very small, so I’m not really sure WHAT happened LOL.
