T stands for last Tuesday in March

Hello, sorry I've been gone so long, it's been a  crazy week. I wrote about it a bit down below, Summer and Rich got sick and I did everything I could not to get it and try and keep the other two healthy. We had a lot of prayers for us and it worked,  all I got was a cold this week. Thankfully Rich and Summer are doing better now and we are back to almost normal around here.
The weather has been crazy again too, some days it's nice and others it's bitter cold and windy. Today we had the blue sky and clouds you see above and cold. No signs of spring yet and even had dustings of snow for two days that melted soon after it landed. Maybe in April it will finally stay warm enough to say it's spring.
here is my moodboard for last week, dedicated to my sister Annie who loves Ireland and Irish.
The little ones got to color in the sun, love seeing them make art.
I'm sharing my beverage here for Elizabeth's T time post this week. We went to my niece's bridal shower today. It was so cute, a fairy tale theme party since she's a big Disney/Princess fan.
Look at the pretty cake they made her, all edible and yummy.
Hope everyone had a good week, sorry I didn't make it around to everyone due to taking care of sick ones and healthy ones. Hoping this week to get around and say hello, thanks so much for stopping and always having a nice comment and support in all I share and do.
Soccer season starts next week too, meaning 5 to 6 days of the week will be about soccer and the kids go on spring break starting next Friday. We also went prom dress shopping today, we finally found a dress that hopefully will work. YAY!! Hard to believe Renee will be graduating in two months.
Have a great week everyone!


  1. Sorry to hear that you are not well, wish you and your family speedy recovery.
    What an interesting post with great pictures, I love that cake too!

  2. I'm glad you are feeling better. I really hope you stay well now.

    There is nothing Irish about me, but, like your sister, I really enjoy celebrating St. Patrick's Day. That vignette was nice and a lovely way to show your appreciation for your sister.

    I don't think I've ever had such a big meal at a bridal shower. Whoever threw that party went all out. And I really liked the little carriage nut cups. That was clever. And speaking of clever, that cake and the other decorations were beautiful. Loved the carriage and the sign. I bet she's excited for June to get here.

    Wow, prom dresses and thoughts of graduation. What a monumental time. Suddenly, only Sam will be at home and you and Rich will be almost empty nesters!

    Thanks for sharing your week with us for T this Tuesday. Sorry I haven't been around, but my Kings and Queens altered book has really taken over my life right now.

  3. I hope everyone at your house stays well for a while :)

    What a sweet cake! Too pretty to eat, but I imagine it was too good _not_ to eat lol.

  4. Glad everyone is feeling certainly is no fun at all being sick.
