Howdy Sugar Pie Darlin’s! I recently made a trip from The Farmhouse in Missouri to Sunny Cali (my home State) and thought I’d share a few photos of my time there! My hubby and I were missing one of our kidlets and knowing he is to be married soon we decided to take advantage of some free air miles to go spend some precious time with him.
We are so proud of our son J.J.! He just finished College (Cal State San Marcos) this past fall and is looking forward to his graduation ceremony in May. Then in June he will exchange Marriage vows with the wonderful and adorable Miss Tiffany! J.J. has worked all through College and has established himself with a great company that will provide a wonderful future for him and his new bride. He is kindhearted, responsible, honorable, HiLaRiOuS and loves the Lord. I am one thankful mama!
Beautiful Miss Tiffany Rose is…well, beautiful! Inside and out she is just precious! She too just graduated from College (Cal Baptist in Riverside, CA) and is going to be a Math teacher. She has so many qualities about her that sparkle and make me so thankful that the Lord brought her and J.J. together. She is so sweet, polite, thoughtful, joyful, and as you can see, so AdOrAbLe! She also loves the Lord and is devoted to Him. What a blessing! I’m so very thankful. My hubby and I love spending time with them!
Of course a trip to California must include a stop here. In-n-Out. Oh. My! The best hamburgers IN THE WORLD!
I can’t explain what it is but no other fast food place compares. Period. It’s just plain delicious! My mouth is watering!
And the French Fries! Okay now…as we Italians say FA-get-about-it! If you’ve eaten at In-n-Out you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t you must go and have a taste someday. They have restuarants all over California, a few in Texas, Utah, Arizona, and Nevada. One word: YUM-a-licious! I’m serious.
Other happenings in lovely Cali….
My sister Sherry from Glamarella Junk has a space in this darling shop in San Diego. Vignettes. It’s full of beautiful and delightful things. Rachel Ashwell, the originator of the style-term Shabby Chic, often shops here when she’s in town. Come take a peek!
Here I am with my sister Sherry. Her Glamarella Jewels are amazing!

She sells lots of vintage goodies such as, hand dyed slips, silk flower pins with vintage jewel centers, necklaces, candles, furnishings and home accessories. Her newest ventures include staging for magazine photo shoots. Proud of my sis!
