Happy Birthday to her! I looove New Orleans. Did you have the most wonderful time?! I've been once and I want to take Taylor I know he'd love it. I've told him all about Cafe du Monde and beignets and they actually sell the beignet mix at the World Market store here. When we went I begged my parents to take me to a bunch of plantations. I had just read "Gone With the Wind" and I was allll over the antebellum south. I love the old mansions. If there was such a thing as past lives I lived in the antebellum south LOL.

All the best,
Allison

Happy Birthday, Staci! I haven't been to New Orleans, but have visited many of the old plantations homes in MS/LA. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them all! I know you had a great trip! BTW, you really took your looks after your Momma! You're both beautiful women!

Have a great day BJ!

Many hugs........

BJ, How fun that it's your daughter's 40th birthday~ The year I turned 40, I bought myself a gift...a pillow that said "40 & Fabulous". I figured I was going to do something positive on my 40th~ ;) Then I decided when my baby sister turned 40 five years later, I passed it on to her...then she passed it on to our niece five years after that when she turned 40. My daughter will get it next in six years. It's been fun, and the pillow LIVES ON way after everyone's 40! ;) Be sure to drop over and sign up for my Blog Give Aways! ;) Ciao for now! ~CC Catherine

Happy Birthday Stacey!
I went to Mackinac Island over the past weekend and stayed at the Grand Hotel on my son's treat. It was wonderful, the best part was spending the time with my son.

Have an awesome day!

Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter!! Loved seeing all the pictures of her, she's gorgeous like her mom:-) I've no doubt she loved New Orleans, I so wish I could go there to visit one day!! xoxo

Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter. I also love everything about New Orleans although I've never been, but someday...it is one of my dreams. I loved seeing the photos of your family and the love for one another. That is what I strive to create since I have never had it in my family of origin. I really wanted a daughter to share all of the girlie love, my jewelry and touch stones, and some day be my best friend as I see here with you and your daughter. God is good because he gave me two amazing little boys who opened my heart and taught me much more than I taught them. They are now grown and have become everything I had hoped and more. I love seeing love. Thank's for sharing your family and showing what love looks like.
