Spring Break ~

I can't believe that Spring Break is here already and that it's only 1 week until Easter. We're going to the Beach for a few days ~ if the weather warms up and it doesn't rain. Tomorrow we're planting tons and tons of flowers and also finishing up with the Sod.

Then ~ Tuesday we'll go shopping for Beach Bunny's Prom Dress and Easter outfit. Baby Bunny wants to go to the Movies with some of her friends during Spring Break. We're also going to have Dinner at The Melting Pot one night. AND ~ we'll also spend one day at the local zoo.

Baby Bunny had her Confirmation today and everything was absolutely perfect. The Church Service was so lovely and the Luncheon was delicious. I just realized this morning that Baby Bunny and Beach Bunny are the FIFTH generation of our Family to join our Church.

We gave Baby Bunny a Necklace with an engraved Heart and Cross Pendant (pictured above). I puchased it from Fairy Tale Jewels and they have several Gorgeous designs available for Confirmation, First Communion, Baptism, etc. The Heart Pendant has Baby Bunny's initial's on the front and the following poignant Bible Verse on the back of the Pendant ~

Trust in the Lord with all of your Heart

The full Bible Verse is:

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight."
Proverbs 3:5-6

I took lots of pictures ~ but dropped my Camera on the way home. No ~ I'm not upset ~ I didn't like my Camera anyway. The pictures never turned out and I've needed to buy a new one. I'll just borrow Beach Bunny's Camera until Mother's Day AND ~ start the difficult process of selecting a "point and shoot" that's not too expensive.

Brahmin Handbags ~

What do you think? Do you like the newest designs by Brahmin? I don't mind carrying a mock Croc handbag ~ in fact I LOVE all of my Brahmin Crocodile Handbags that I've collected over the years. However, for some reason ~ I really don't want to carry a faux Anaconda wrapped around my wrist or body. Don't like the Snake ~ but LOVE the Hat (pictured above).

They have so many new designs on their website with lots of yellow red and white. I miss the Vintage Brahmin with the classic Brown Crocodile ~ maybe they'll have those traditional styles available in their Fall Collection. Hop right here to see the latest Brahmin Handbags.

So ~ say goodbye and good riddance to those boring Stamps from the Post Office.

Baby Bunny is keeping me Hopping!!

Baby Bunny ~ Age 3

Baby Bunny (who's 13 now) is really keeping me hopping!! She has been attending 3 different Church Youth Groups and is also taking Confirmation Classes at my Church. Last Sunday she was the Lay Leader at our Church and did a Fabulous job. She obviously takes after her Father because you couldn't pay me to speak in front of a group of people.

So ~ between Confirmation, Easter and being Lay Leader ~ she needed a couple of nice dresses. We spent Friday night at the Mall trying on (what seemed like) every dress. Of course ~ since she's 13 ~ we couldn't agree on anything. We took a break ~ had Dinner and then FINALLY found two dresses that she liked. One of them is a Turquoise sleeveless sheath by Calvin Klein and the other one is a Purple Dress by Adrienne Papelle. There are some really ugly dresses out there ~ we just didn't agree on which ones were ugly. We even found some cute shoes that match her new Turquoise dress.

Now ~ next weekend, I've got to take Beach Bunny shopping for a Prom Dress and an Easter outfit. Hopefully ~ we can find something that we both agree on. She's tall and thin ~ so everything looks great on her. However, she likes the trendy styles and I prefer the classic styles. Wish me luck.......

Baby Bunny (who's 13 now) is also selling her Legos Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle ~ Number 4709. We're going to put it on Ebay this week or next. She worked this past weekend putting it together ~ so that we can take pictures of it and also make sure that all of the pieces were there.

This Bunny Loves to Read ~

I've been busy reading several different books (featured below) and although they're quite different ~ I LOVE all three books.

This Lilly Pulitzer Book (pictured above) has so many Gorgeous pictures, tasty recipes and actually useful entertaining tips. It's a really Fabulous Book and I really enjoyed each and every page. I guess that Lilly Pulitzer will always remain vibrant and youthful ~ even though she's now approaching her 80's. Doesn't she seem much younger than that??

This is also a great little book entitled: Everyday Happy ~ 365 Ways to a Better You by Jenny Hare (seriously her last name is Hare ~ like a Bunny). It's a book to assist you in finding your inner happiness and it has things to do each day to achieve happiness.
"If life is getting you down, try a daily dose of happiness! This pocketbook personal trainer is packed with healthy snacks and herbal remedies to get you feeling great, energy boosting exercises you can do at your desk and motivational meditations for a more positive outlook."

I just finished reading Jenny Sanford's Book ~ Staying True. I found this Book so intriguing and read it in just one night ~ one rather late night. Jenny Sanford is incredibly strong with an unwaivering faith and is the epitome of grace and elegance. At one point ~ she said:
"I have tried my best to act responsibly, patiently, and fairly and will freely welcome the next chapter with no regrets from the past and no fears for the future. I will persevere with my feet firmly planted - preferably with some sand between my toes- focused on my priorities and looking onward and ever upward."
I think she said that so eloquently.

More Bunnies ~

There are only 24 days until Easter and maybe we'll have a "cool" Easter and can actually wear Sweaters. This weekend ~ we're going shopping for our Easter outfits. In the meantime ~ today I worked on displaying some of our Bunnies throughout the House.

Tomorrow ~ if the weather is nice ~ we're going to plant lots of flowers around the Oak Trees in the front yard. Our house was selected and will be featured in a forthcoming "Coffee Table" Book ~ so I want the yard to look nice. Hope I haven't missed the deadline to return the release form and submit a brief history (without the Ghost Stories) of our house. Guess I'd better quit procrastinating and get those documents in the mail.

Count Your Blessings ~

As you know already ~ I teach the 2-3 year old Sunday School class at Church and today the lesson is "Jesus and the Children". It's one of my favorite stories and I found a flannel board set to use ~ as well as a cute art project to make. I also just puchased the "Wee Sing Bible Songs" CD ~ which has so many Fabulous songs on it. It's on sale right now at Books A Million for only $1.77 ~ just hop right here to purchase it. They also have "Wee Sing More Bible Songs" for $3.00 ~ but they're only on sale for a limited time.

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow."
- Melodie Beatie

I saw this quote the other day and found it enlightening. I guess it means to be grateful and Count Your Blessings. So ~ today I'll be counting my many Blessings. Now ~ if I can just find something to wear to Church today ~ I'll be grateful for that...

Jimmy Buffett and Take the Weather with You

Exciting news ~ Mr. Bunny met Jimmy Buffett this week. How cool is that??? I'll post all the pictures later. I actually met him YEARS ago ~ okay DECADES ago ~ ions before he became an Icon ~ but for some reason he doesn't remember me.

My Sister has been here for a week and when she left today ~ I told her "Take the Weather with you". She lives in Atlanta and she couldn't believe how cold it's been here in Florida. This morning it was 35 degrees and now at 1:00 pm it's 57 degrees ~ which is still too cold for Florida ~ especially since it's March.

Jimmy Buffett has recorded over 350 songs ~ think I'll go and listen to a few of his songs. AND ~ maybe it'll inspire "Mother Nature" to warm things up ~ cause Every Bunny LOVES Jimmy Buffett ~ especially Mother Nature.

Butterfly shaped Flowers ~

Ready for Spring ~ yet??!!? I just purchased these pretty Butterfly shaped fabric flowers from Tracy B. Designs over on Etsy. I thought they might encourage Spring to hurry and arrive. I'm so tired of the cold weather and can't wait for the temps to get above 70 degrees.

I also Special ordered some additional fabric flowers from Tracy in Spring colors. If you'd like to hurry Spring along ~ then you can hop on over to Tracy's Etsy Shop and order a bunch of these cute flowers too. She has lots of other eco friendly and adorable designs in her Etsy Shop.
