A Wonderful Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!  I hope you all have a wonderful day today.  We will be sharing the afternoon with friends.  I’m going to make our favorite pretzel dogs and our friend is bringing his famous homemade salsa which, even if I didn’t like him I would invite him just for this stuff.  It is to.die.for.

If I can convince him to let me I will share the recipe with you.  I have tried making it, but it never turns out like his.  Of course, I’m not the best example since I tend to mess up cereal.

I’m sure the kids will do a little swimming while the adults lounge.

Then as the sun goes down’ we’ll eat some more and sit out on the front porch enjoying each other’s company.

May you have a blessed Memorial Day!

  2. I love love love love love your back deck! & your newly painted front porch is so lovely!!! TY for all you share on your blog, I feel like sometimes I just dont measure up but your blog reminds me that we are all different. Its okay if we are a family who sleeps in everyday or we change things all the time lol
    TY for all the encouragment you share….who knows maybe one day we will be at Canton at the same time and we can meet lol
    Blessings on this Memorial Day!

  3. Lisa, Your back porch is so pretty! Enjoy your company.

  4. Sounds like a great day!


  5. Loved seeing the pictures on today’s post, but I have to admit that my heart swelled with pride just a bit when I saw the American flag and the Texas flag framed up so nicely together. I’ll have to pin that to my Deep in the Heart of Texas pin board (http://pinterest.com/suzannejackson/deep-in-the-heart-of-texas/). My mama was right: you can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t take Texas out of the girl!

  6. your decorations look gorgeous! have a lovely day

  7. OH Lisa,
    Everything looks so lovely!! Is it really Tuesday? Wow, is all I can say!! You had quite the productive weekend. 🙂

    Did you make your flags? If so would you be willing to share how it was done? Have a wonderful week! I think you should be having a cooling trend…. I know it just got here after a week of record breaking temperatures… it was really crazy as Mama & Papa Roland were up for Ian’s graduation and it was hotter here than it was in Louisiana which is where they are from.
    Later, once again have a wonderful day!

  8. LOVE YOUR FRAMED FLAGS!! I have an Oregon flag that flew over the capital building that I would love to frame like that. Could you tell us your secret please? Or better yet, come to COOL Oregon and show me how. You’ll want to go home to defrost!!
