The name of the Olympic Opening Ceremony show will be ‘Isles of Wonder’ and the worldwide broadcast will commence at 9pm.

A Beautiful Home! A Bridal Shower & Pinterest!

I recently attended a bridal shower of a long time family friend in Spokane.
We meandered along country roads, reminiscent a little of Maine....swaying/winding roads until we got there.

This beautiful, custom home was at the Lake's Edge and the shower was purely picturesque!
We had alot of fun!

Are YOU using Pinterest yet?  You must check it out!
My daughter helped put on the shower and came up with wonderful ideas (off of Pinterest) for the bridal shower, including.......

A "sign-in" leaf tree!  Green paper leaves were attached with clothes pins to some bare branches (that were placed in sand/with small lights that were battery operated)---each attendee wrote on the leaf ----their name, along with any other personalized message for the new bride--to-be to read later.

We sprinkled the tablecloth with large crystal/glass was quite lovely (if I do say myself!)

Here's to a lifetime of Love, Happiness & Laughter!

p.s.   if you like the above house and are in the market to buy a new home here in the Tri Cities, TEXT or give me a call direct at 509.302.0234  Piper Barton, REMAX

I have been really, really busy this year because people, like yourselves, are buying due to the great price of homes and the unbelievably low interest rates.  It's amazing how that is affecting how much of a home you can buy!  Don't miss out! We'll have fun looking!

The Firetruck and My Angel Baby #2

My Grandson, Colt, has such a sweet heart!  This broke mine! :(

So, according to his mother (my daughter), Coltie had gone with his big 4 year old brother, Gunner James,on a field trip that Gunner's school had!  While there, Colt was running around and would not listen to his mommy.  THEN, an actual alarm went off and all the firemen were sliding down their ladders, suiting up and starting thier engines to respond to an ACTUAL FIRE!! 

CHAOS!!  Where is my child?

"Oh, Colt are in TIME OUT!"  shouts mommy.

Poor Angel Baby...was SO he is SO sad!  (where are my kleenex?  )
