Favorite Friday

This week my most favorite thing is this A.MAZ.ING picture I got of Cubby on vacay last week in Florida!!!!!! I just love everything about it...the way his two little front teeth are just barely showing, his look of total excitement, the way his goggles and Spongebob bathing suit match his boogie board....I took it at just the right exact moment!

And I have to mention the shells we came home with. We always come home with treasures and shells from the beach. I string a few on a ribbon and hang them on my christmas tree every year with a tag with the date on it....I have a whole collection of them.

Look at this little display on the window sill in my kitchen. I treated myself to this little jar a few weeks ago (and yes, I've toyed with the idea of doing another "What is it Wednesday" in this little jar....but I'm not sure) and I put the pieces of coral I found in there. And how 'bout the other three shells???! Aren't they terrific! Our good friend at my mom's beach club gave one to each of the kids one morning. They are truly the most beautiful shells I've ever held. The next morning when we saw him I asked him where he found them....did he have to snorkel just off shore? What time in the morning does one have to get there to find something like this? Can you believe he had a whole bag of them from the Pottery BARN???!!!! I couldn't believe it! I'm glad he fessed up, because I would have ran myself ragged trying to find more.....but for reals? The Pottery Barn?! Oh well.....shhhh......don't tell anyone :)

I live in Melbourne, FL and have been ALL over Florida beaches, and a whole shell like that is just impossible to find! Yep, can you believe us natives here have to buy shells?? LOL!

No shells here. Alas!
