Now this is just too cute for words. You know how I love little girl kitchen items well this would be just the ticket! I was just thinking about the differences between boys and girls. Ever realize that all of the toys we buy our little girls have to do with babies, kitchen and laundry. But the toys little boys get are trucks, boats, motorcycles. Know wonder they never grow up! Little girls are trained from the moment of birth to work, boys to play!

Little known fact: I really wanted nothing more in life than to be June Cleaver! I wanted the little white picket fence house, manicured yard, and to be a stay at home, pie baking mother. I wanted my children to come home from school to a kitchen filled with the smell of fresh baked cookies. And to know the security of not being left at home alone. Knowing that when they arrived home, love and happiness filled the house they lived in.
What were your dreams?

I just love all of the romantic fashions of the 1950's Women looked so put together in those days with the clutch purse and kid leather gloves.
I really love the long gloves on this beauty. I have a pair, but never have worn them.

This cookbook is wonderful. She has sections covering everything from cocktails to how to set a table. There is also a chapter on what not to serve your guests, ideas on appetizers and desserts that you do not have to cook. Another chapter features ideas on flavoring your foods with herbs and spices. This is a simple book, using everyday foods. The layout is easy to follow and photos are wonderful!
I plan to spend some time this weekend poring over the new ideas and trying some out on my sweetie!
I am going to thrift shop. Have a great Friday. See you tomorrow for Pink Saturday!

This weekend, we watched several movies together and this was one that I really enjoyed. If you have not watched Fireproof, you really need to rent a copy of it and watch with your spouse. I have seen two other movies that Alex Kendrick has written/produced/directed. Facing the Giants and Flywheel. All of his movies have a wonderful spiritual message and completely family oriented. Facing the Giants is such a great film for teens, it is about a football team that learns many lessons through having faith in the ability that God has given them. Fireproof is about a young married couple facing so many of the trials and temptations that we face in everyday life.
I love the phrase he uses in the movie."You NEVER leave your partner in a fire" When the going gets tough that is exactly what many couple choose to do. They walk out, divorce and think the grass is greener on the other side. It is not! Life is what we choose to make of it and so is marriage. We learn through the hard times what we are really made of. I think one of the most important things we should learn is that no ONE person can make you happy. We have to be happy with our self. Love yourself and then it is so easy to love your partner. We are to be a compliment to our spouse, a helper, a lover, a true soul mate. We sign a covenant when we marry not a contract. A covenant is for life! Through the good ,the bad ,and the ugly! We must pray for our spouse and lift them up, not ever demean and tear them down. Even when we do not feel like being nice. We must! Harsh words will last forever. Kind words soothe and calm a storm!
Have a wonderful week. I have two more days at work and then will enjoy being off for a few days. Hoping to make it to Canton Tx this weekend for Laurie Anna's Serendipity weekend! Sounds like so much fun!
