"I BELIEVE IN PINK! I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."— Audrey Hepburn

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every night, friends. You have done what you could. Let it go.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happy Pink Saturday!!

Well there it is ladies...can you hazard a guess as to what the hubby and I might be up to on this fine Pink Saturday? Hmmm?
Well OK, I'll tell you...we are attending a baseball game! We will be heading to the town next to us...Which just happens to be Washington DC! to see the Washington Nationals play the San Fransisco Giants! I was so hoping to see Tim Lincecum pitch, but it was not to be...he pitched last night. Oh Well...The hat? Well, I did not doctor it up...so...that is on my list of things to be gotten, if you know what I mean...

Hope you all have a very Happy Pink Saturday!!

Please join us over at Beverly's howsweetthesound for Pink Saturday!

Happy Birthday To Our Sweet Baby Boy!!

Here he is...the Birthday Boy!!! He is a great joy to our little family...
There was great sadness due to the loss of his predecessor.
Bailey came into our lives sooner than we thought he should have...
The giggles started almost right away.
Now, if  Bailey hears laughter, he comes running...for it must involve him somehow...

Bailey is a sweet little boy...our first boy, our first puppy, and the first rescue that we actually have a date of birth for! 
We are very excited about that!
Bailey is too.
This is me holding Bailey the day we picked him up...

Here we go all loaded up and ready to go...he was and is so trusting...he has always, from day one, just slipped right into our little family and brought us such joy.
We thought we rescued our Sweet Little Boy but...

I have to wonder...
So...Happy Birthday Little Bailey we Love You!

A Random Thought Thursday!

"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment"-Ralph Waldo Emmerson 
I just love that quote, don't you? I saw this the other day and I felt that it was so true that I added it to the top of my blog. There it is right at the top under the heading...
I do believe that I remain true to who I really am. I know that I am happiest when I am at my very Pinkest. There are those that sometimes wish me to be something else. There are times when I am forced to be, for short periods of time...I am never very happy then...
I always, so far, find my way back...I am glad and proud that I do...I used to believe, when I was younger, that to conform was to be what I need to be, what I should be. Now that I am older and wiser and Pinker, I am happier, and those around me are happier with me. 
That, I believe, is Accomplishment!
Hooray for older and wiser!

PS...If you like the illustration at the top just under the quote...click here...there are more where that came from...

Welcome to the 43rd edition of

Blogging  is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read  and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is  this person!?"  I know them...but yet I don't know them!  I want  to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great  way for all of us to "meet" each other!

Every Sunday Never Growing Old will post five get to know you  questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we  can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!

Java will add a linky so we can follow who participates and get to know them  better!!  Be sure to link the POST and not just your whole blog!!


1.  Caesar Salad or Garden Salad?
2.  Will you be watching the Royal Wedding on April 29th?
3.  Last thing you spent lots of money on?
4.  Window seat or aisle seat?
5.  Do you know your blood type?

My answers!!

1. Caesar Salad or Garden Salad?
   Ceasar, I believe...

2.  Will you be watching the Royal Wedding on April 29th?
    I don't know that I will watch it in real time but I am sure

3.  Last thing you spent lots of money on?
   Hmmm...hard to say as if you ask my husband I am always spending lots of money...lol...
