Michigan Treasures :)

Besides going to the Beach, my favorite thing to do in Michigan (or on any vacation) is to go antiquing...That's just how our Mother raised us ;) My husband's even grown to like it (well, he deals with it).  Paven decided to start a puppy dog collection on this vacation, which is a good thing because it gives her something to look for & keeps her entertained (my Mom's idea) & it worked :)

She brought her own money, but I'm pretty sure she spent it all on candy :)

Here's some of the cool stuff we came home with...I think this pitcher is my favorite :)

Love me some Pyrex Bowls :)

& anything orange or yellow :)

 Paven found 2 puppies to start her collection...

 I think she has good taste :)

Stuff My Grandma Says :)


 Grandma's not saying much these days...I miss talking to her so much sometimes...She was always full of jokes, stories, & useless information ;) Here are just a few words of wisdom from my Grandma Jumps that could apply to almost any situation you might find yourself in & that just make me smile ♥

"Always ask yourself:  'Is a moment's pleasure worth a lifetime of agony?'"

"Be sure your sins will find you out."

"This too shall pass."

"Don't love something that can't love you back."

"Never date a man you wouldn't marry."

"Alcohol increases desire, but decreases performance."

"That's very fonstevious." ~A totally made up word (by her father).

"Church is a place for sinners."

She's an amazing, complicated, loving, compassionate, giving, funny, musical, wise, God-loving, strong woman & I hope that I'm just a little bit like her...

This was taken over the summer on my Aunt's 50th Birthday...I think she had a good time :)

Thinking about you today, Grandma, & thankful for all the ways you have influenced my life ♥
