A HAPPY PINK SATURDAY FOURTH OF JULY...

AMERICA, AMERICA....GOD SHED HIS GRACE ON THEE....
*
THE HAPPIEST 4TH OF JULY to all my family and friends....
****************
THANK YOU, BEVERLY at HOW SWEET THE SOUND
for this fabulous PINK SATURDAY.
It has become such a part of our every week and
we all look forward to sharing our love of
pink....
*
GOD BLESS AMERICA.....
the land that I love......

*


A simple table setting for a
SIMPLE BREAKFAST FOR ONE....
*

MR. SWEET had an early appointment and MOI slept in !!
When I DID manage to drag my lazy self out of bed..
I was so hungry I couldn't get breakfast ready
quick enough...
As Mr. Sweet sometimes says...
"I'm so hungry, I could eat the North end of a bear going South!!"
***********heehee.. whoa...that's pretty hungry !!






I'm pretty sure ya'll are getting tired of seeing all my same dishes...
black, white, red, polka dot, stripes....Social Security doesn't like paying for ANY thing new!!
....and my same ole favorite meal of the entire day....
breakfast...
*
This morning...I made my hungry self
buttermilk pecan waffles..
topped with homemade strawberry preserves ...
and my favorite meat in the whole universe...
crispy bacon...
(and, I am beholden to SS for paying for my bacon!! :O)
*
o, yes...if I had to choose only one meat to eat for the rest of my entire life..
it would be.....bacon ! !!
*
......with Dunkin Donut sweet coffee..
************************************************
Happy 4th of July...
STAY SAFE...!!
and
i love you all....

Happy Pink Saturday and Fourth of July, BJ. I love celebrating our glorious country, but July 4 is kind of a hard day for me because my father died on this date.

Your breakfast looks delish - and so pretty. I think if I could only have one meat, it would be scallops. Can that count as a meat?

Aunt Julie said...

Yummy...Hope you have a Happy 4th! Stopping by from SITS to Share the Comment Love.

Your porch swing looks so wonderful framed in our flag--great photo, BJ!!

OOOOHHHHHH- I do love your happy polka dot dishes!! I've had the same set of white Corelle since 1973---I've replaced a few pieces and added a few sizes, but I still love them!! Now my son and DIL have some of their very own even though they received all sorts of fancy schmancy dishes for wedding gifts. You can't beat white dishes--unless you mix in some with black polka dots!!! :) Your breakfast looks yummy--and I LOVE bacon, too!

Hope your Pink Sat. and 4th were wonderful---hope you enjoyed the parade you attended with your grands!!! We did! L, Dana

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

I hear you on not being able to buy new stuff. That's why I love to thrift, but I've had to cut back on that too. I will be so glad when I am finally working full time again, but will still have to budget very carefully as I won't be making near as much money as I did at my old job.

I don't ever get tired of seeing you reuse your beautiful dishes in new ways! It's always a pleasure to come visit your blog.
