While cleaning pictures off my phone and sorting them out, I realized that lots of potential posts have gone unwritten.Confessions of a Semi-Domesticated Mama for Southern Breeze Sweet Tea, which is sweetened with Spenda and sweetens as it steeps as the Spenda is in the tea bag. I never, ever win anything, so I was really surprised to get an e-mail from Delia saying I'd won! I'd pretty well given up on sweet tea because of the sugar, but this stuff tastes like the best sweet tea and is calorie free. Winner winner chicken dinner! The sad part of the story is that my favorite grocery store doesn't carry it, but Amazon does! I've finally run out, and I think I'm going to need to restock.

I turned another year older on Saturday. Well, I suppose really it's only one day older, but now if anyone dare ask my age, I have a new number to tell them. It's certainly better than the alternative!
The celebration of birthday week continued last night with dinner with Mom and Dad at the White River Fish House in Branson. My fish tasted just like chicken fried chicken! It was delicious! I love the decor of anything Bass Pro does, and the WRFH was no exception. They should probably hire me to shop for the neat old stuff that they use in their stores and restaurants!

This post is part of the link party at Anderson+Grant's blog. See more great projects by clicking on the link below the button (since I don't know how to make the button an actual button).
I tend to assign a little too much personality to inanimate objects, so when this cool basket languished at my friend's garage sale after 2 days and a price reduction, I had to claim it. Its first life was as a baby bassinet long ago and I couldn't stand for it not to have a good home. ;) Can you see how this feeling sorry for objects might be a problem?
I liked the white paint on it and the natural distressing provided by age, but to go in this particular spot, I thought a dark color would work better.

I love decorating for fall, and find it too hard to wait for the actual first day of fall to get out the tubs of pumpkin themed goodies.
I haven't done the outside fall decorations yet since it's so hot, but I'm looking forward to getting some pumpkins and mums put out. Staying home today with a cold had given me an extra day to enjoy fall, and the cool damp weather outside is a nice addition!
