Make it Pretty Monday - Week 13

Hello World!  It's a holiday today!  One last summertime whirl.  Later today we will be heading to my sister's to celebrate my Mom's (aka Betty Lou) birthday.  The young lady turns 82 on the fourth! We are so happy that she is in our lives.  She's a wise, Godly woman who has the sweetest heart.  She loves to shop...quite the closet she has!  And, she plays a mean game of Scrabble.  Her Scrabble nickname is Baracuda!  Enough said.  Happy Birthday Mom!  May your year be filled with the goodness and blessings of God!  We love you!  


Off we go to kick off week 13 of Make it Pretty Monday!
