I have been having a blast this week. It has been a tough 3 weeks in a lot of ways and I so needed time to rest, regroup, re-evaluate and relax. I got all of those accomplished and today I felt the need to write a quick post of this and that and the other.
I made a new friend flying out of Rochester last week. Mayo Clinic basically supports all the flights out of that airport from the looks of it. My new friend, Cheryl, lives in Texas and we immediately became fast friends. I was cracking up over the sign on the door which plainly, although not so plainly in my picture, states “NO Piggybacking”. It struck us both as funny so we tried to pose in a piggyback fashion.
We have been spending time on the beach. I may have gotten a bit too much sun. Oops. Guess that 30 SPF was not working the way I intended it to but it’s all good. I will bronze soon. Chris did buy me a hat but did not spring for the $180 model. I am sporting the $19.99 one now. He said his love was conditional and that it did not include spending that much money on a hat. You may call us the Hatfields.
We have been enjoying fabulous food. The place we ate this morning for breakfast was to die for. Seriously. It is called the The Perfect Pig and you guys all know how much I love my pig farmer friends and piggies, right? This place had THE best grits I have ever tasted in my life and I have tasted quite a few. Yum. Yum.MORE OF THE OTHER
Did I mention we are spending time at the beach? I gotta get the house sold in Iowa so I can be down here more, right? This week it will go back on the market. Fingers crossed.And finally:
One of the fun things that I like to do is review products and every once in a while I get the opportunity to do just that. Influenster has sent me some products to try and one of the things that they encourage their reviewers to do is write a blog post about the product. I received this product for review and am always happy to share my thoughts on it. This time around I received a nice box filled with Dessange products.I used the shampoo and conditioner for a week and let me tell you — this stuff is wonderful! The fragrance is light and pleasant and I loved the way the products went on my hair. I usually wash my hair daily so it gets a lot of “exercise” but these products did not dry it out nor did they make it feel too oily or heavy. I loved the way my hair styled after I used these products and I think that they are a definite winner. I am not sure if it is this shampoo and conditioner but my hair has stood up in the Alabama heat this past week and looked the best it has looked in a long time. I love the fact that this product is for colored hair because that is my life right now—-coloring that gray away. “I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.”

I´m glad you had a chance to regroup, rest and relax. Your hair looks fabulous!! You will love your new home, I just know it. Good luck with the house sale.
It’s fun to see snapshots of your vacation! I love those little pig salt and pepper shakers. I’ll also have to give these hair products a try.
I’m glad you had time to get some R&R. Hope you’re okay. 🙂
You’re lookin’ great ! Have never really had vacation. I did go to the shopping mall though. Two years ago.
You may be calling yourselves the “Hatfields” by I think you’re the real McCoy..
You are looking so good. The vacation, time away has obviously sited you well.
Thanks, Judith! I appreciate the sweet comment! I need to pop over and see what is going on with you. Somehow I think I lost your blog from my feed so I need to go fix that!
I meant ‘suited’ you not ‘sited’ you
Those little piggies are cute!
They are adorable, aren’t they? And very photogenic.
You sound happy and relaxed and that is good my friend. Not that you usually don’t. But you know…
I’m not surprised either that you made a new friend at the airport. That’s the Beth Ann way.
It is the Beth Ann way. 🙂

I love that you were able to relax. I sure do miss you though! I’ll be able to hit the beach in about 3 weeks myself 🙂
