A summer makeover...

With the last of the birthday festivities behind us now for a few months, I decided to update the blog with one of my favorite blog banners from last year. 

We won't be visiting Mackinac Island again this summer, but we will be leaving in less than 10 days for our annual week long vacation on the shores of Lake MI.



 I'll be back again on Friday with a special treat that my husband surprised me with Wednesday night. Let's just say he ventured into an antique store while I was at work and he has now scored major BROWNIE points.  I also need to do a "mail call" on my blog. I have all kinds of special treasures that have been sent to our house recently from my blogging friends.  I promise to take pics over the weekend of my goodies.

A husband who shops?! Amazing!
I did buy my hubby a few things for Father's Day that I wanted for the lake house....and he fell for it! LOL
Can't wait to see what your husband found!

Now wait a minute...not only does your husband do a fantastic job with the kids, dress up in grass skirts and take you on wonderful romantic jaunts he also goes inside the actual antique stores? I cannot fathom your luck. You certainly picked a winner...smiles...Renee
