PICTURE TIME!

We had an awesome day about a week ago when the clouds were just so white and puffy, the sky was the prettiest blue and I just had to snap some pictures.
(click on them to enlarge)

These are some pictures from Venice Beach where we had a delicious dinner celebrating Tristen's birthday last weekend. I didn't take picture of our awesome meals but I did take one after we finished the desserts!

Guess what we found at the garden shop last weekend. Ranunculus flowers! That's right, I now have my own planted in our yard.
Look what I received in the mail the other day. It's the Hallmark Dreambook for 2011 which of course has all the new ornaments in it for this year. Here is a sneak peak. I am so excited!!

There is a new post over at Debby's Tree.

Awesome shots Debby. I really like the clouds especially. The times I have flown I love watching the jet go through clouds. Blessings.

Fantastic pictures. Having dinner on the beach sounds divine. I haven't been to the ocean in years and it's crazy how many people in Oklahoma have never seen it. Have fun with your ornament book

I wish we lived by each other
we would sit on the couch and play the "which one is your favorie" page game in the ornament magazine.

I love those flowers. I think they have the prettiest colors. I planted some buds in the fall but I don't see any sign of them coming up at all. I wonder why.
