Celebrating a Birthday

Today is my mom's 70th birthday. Grace and myself took the day off from school to spend with her. The plan was to do a little shopping then go out to lunch. Mom really wanted to visit Belk's to see what they had on the clearance racks and stopped at the Clinque counter instead. She mentioned that she wanted some really good makeup. The Clinque employee could not have been any nicer. Mom got a make over then made her purchases. I had been contemplating taking Grace to the dermatologist for acne but decided to ask for advice here while waiting on mom. After mom finished Grace sat in the chair and had her face cleansed, moisturized and a light touch of foundation and lip gloss applied. I decided it was worth the money to help Grace and the acne situation. We all remember what growing up was like. Anywho, the pic above is of both the girls after their makeovers. They loved it. We all had a great time being together.

I can't believe how much "more grown-up" Grace looks since last time I stopped by! I know she has make-up on in this pic but she really is growing up!

I understand computer issues. When we moved back to Ohio we had our computers but no internet available! It took weeks to find a provider that could service our home. We finally found someone, but our usage is severely limited from what we had before and considerably more expensive. :(

I'll be stopping by for some gardening tips- we'll actually get to have one this year- I'm so excited! We're also getting chickens soon! I can't wait. This new country life is wonderful!
