Birthday Day 

We had such a nice day yesterday celebrating Ada's birthday. 

Balloon (number 8 of course :o)..) and presents were waiting for our  
birthday girl when she woke up. 
After opening the gifts and breakfast we went to take the boat to
 Ellis Island and to the Statue of Liberty. 

The day ended with singing happy birthday and a big 
 chocolate/vanilla ice cream cake :o)

heart is. And this poster says it all !!

My Missing New Roof 

The boys are still working on putting on our new roof. 
It is a lot of work, but I know they are also having a good time, because I hear 
them laugh a lot. :o)  
They are wrapping it up early today, because tonight is the 
Bill Maher show in Atlantic City. It will be nice for them to take a 
break and go and have a good laugh with Mr. Maher. 

I just dropped Ada off at a her friend from her dance school's birthday 
pool party. She will have a lot of fun for sure... 
After I pick her up we are stopping by our friend's house who is having 
a surprise birthday party for her husband... 
So much going on this Saturday !!! :o)

Thursday's Word 


Happy Thursday 

How is your week going? 

It is chilly by us this morning. 
I hope it will get warmer because tonight we are meeting up with 2 of 
Ada's friends from her dance school and their mother. 

Every Thursday night during the summer our town shows a movie by 

our City Hall plaza.  They put up a big screen and people come with their 
chairs, blankets  etc to watch the movie.
It is such a nice event and you always run into people you know.
 And they have free pop corn :o) 
Tonight they are showing "Wizard of Oz". 

Now time for my morning coffee, before it gets cold.

Happy Thursday.
A late post today from our little house. 
I am home alone. 
Mr J. took the girls to Six Flags Great Adventure Park today. 
Besides going on the rides there is a concert which the girls were dying to go to.  
They were going to meet up with my sister-in-law and her kids, 
so they could all go together to sing and dance along and have a good time :o) 

Time for some Marie-time for me :o) 
I am about to throw myself on the sofa and watch some of 
my favorite shows. .. And tonight is also a new episode of Hannibal. 

Vi ses !

Have a great night !!

The "Exclusive Mix n Chic Style Challenge"

Chairish contacted me to see if I was up for a fun challenge. 
Their Exclusive Mix n Chic Style Challenge. 
Oh yes I was (!!) because I am a Shabby Chic kind of girl and just by taking 
a quick look at their website, I knew it was going to 
be a fun challenge for me :o) 

So... If I could design a living room space these
are the furniture I would choose from Chairish

I would pick a white sofa of course. Nothing works for me besides 
white sofa(s) and it has to be comfy for sure. 
For a coffee table I would select this primitive boot bench with this 
total Shabby Chic look. 
And I would add a nice mix of candle holders and a big glass vase with 
some (pink) flowers on it for decor.
For the chairs I would pick these 2. 
One one each side of the coffee table/bench 

This Antique Gustavian Style Armchairs on one side and.... 

 .... this French Regency Armchair With Painted Frame on the other side 

I was debating if I would add a dresser or an armoire. 
When I saw this French Provincial Armoire I feel in love.  
Totally in love... 
I would fill it up with some of favorite things for display.

For decor in the living room, and to also add some color, I would of 
course add some cushions to the sofa. 
Behind the sofa I would have some white shelving with a mix of frames.
Maybe have an old barn door against the wall as decoration. 
For lighting I would either add a chandelier or some floor lamps. 
I would also have some big baskets filled with quilts and blankets.
I could go on and on..... 

Going shopping at Chairish you would be able to buy everything for a house.
A big house. 
I know I could easily find everything I need.

Happy 4th of July


Today is American Independence Day and we always throw a BBQ on 4th of July. 
No exceptions this year. 
Not sure about the weather, very cloudy, but according to the weather 
forecast we are not getting any rain. 
I hope the sun will come out at some point :o) 

We are ready to eat some food off the grill and for the kids to have fun. 

Tonight we are all going to the park to see the fireworks. 
The kids love it. 
And the adults too. 

Time for me to get going here.....

Have a wonderful 4th of July and I will see you tomorrow. 


Thursday, July 2, 2015


It is Thursday but "Friday" for me. 
We are off tomorrow for the 4th of July weekend. 
I have to work a few hours in the morning, but from home, so it's all good. 
...And then I am going to treat myself with a pedicure and a little bit 
of summer clothes shopping. 
I just love to have days off :o) 

Have a niiiice Thursday
