Bubba meets the girl of his dreams,His first cousin Patty Ann.

He takes her out for a special dinner, And shows her a good time at the Redneck Carnival at Diggerland.

The next day they spend together and Bubba shows off his water skiing skills.

Later that night, he romances her under Special mood lighting.

A week or so later, Bubba realizes This relationship is getting serious.He makes reservations for a Valentine's Day dinner. Patty Ann was So impressed with his thoughtfulness,

A month later he proposes to Patty Ann,

And he buys her a really purdy Engagement ring.

On the day of their wedding, he Tells her how much he loves her Just before the ceremony.

Then they're off to their Honeymoon Suite,

Where they open their wedding gifts. Their favorites ?

His was the New BBQ,

Hers was the Chandelier,
Bubba takes his new bride home.

He wants to tidy up the place, So he cuts the grass with his Riding mower.
Then Bubba decides to fix a few Things around the house.He makes the bathroom a little Nicer for his sweetie,

Repairs the mirror on her car,

And installs a new flat screen TV In the living room !

Bubba works hard at his job every day. He does the best that he can with Only a 5th grade education

Snicker's the shop cat...Don't you love the way it is laying too funny!! Just in case you might want to give it a belly rub ha ha!!

~Welcome Aboard my mountain top ~

Hello Guys, I thought I would show you some random shots of my favorite room on my mountain top...Please wipe the pine tree sap off your feet and "Welcome Aboard" ha ha!!

Grab a Hot mug of coffee and a cookies to warn off the ocean's cool breeze...

I grew up in the San Francisco bay area and the ocean was only a half hour away as the sea gulf flies...So when I moved up to this mountain top it was the one thing I really missed...So what to do!!! I know I'll bring the ocean to me ha ha!!

This four seasons sun room was added on in 06...See that bathing suit hanging there that was my Mama's from the fifties....sighs

it's is right off my kitchen

Full stream ahead mate...My favorite sign as you come into my kitchen...

Love my little boat table with the cute oars legs...

I have dishes to even match the room as we do love to dine out here....

Even the flat ware has lighthouses and sail boats on it....

I keep all the dishes in this old drop front desk...that I painted white and painted the ship on it... Hey it's all about the ocean...

My diving bell helmet from the USS Navy 1941 a ships port hole with sea shells in it...
It sits on my soda frig....

I love my Ocean blue floor..

All set for dinner...

Ship's lantern

Ship's cleat's

Day time view of the ceiling...see even my fan is clear and I love the ocean blue light..
See all my beautiful cedar and pine tree's
Good night you guys and Thanks for coming by and seeing my ocean sun room in the mountains...Hope all this sea mist didn't ruin your hair do ha ha!!
I'm linking up to our sweet Marty's for Table top Tuesday at "A Stroll Thru Life"...Please go by and see our wonderful hostess...Don't you just love that lady? I know I sure do...I'm also linking up to Smiling Sally's for Blue Monday another lady I just love to pieces...

update: on Candace...she is now 35 weeks along and only have 1 more week of bed rest and then the Doctor wants her to be up and walking as much as she can...In fact he told her to go to the mall even YIPPEE!!...Hey I even told her husband it's Doctors ordered ha ha!! She still have to go to the Hospital 2 times a week for her NST test...or as I love to call it our Gilligan's Island Cruise day...we never know how long they will keep her...Last Tuesday we went in at 9am and she started having contractions and bleeding and it took until 11 pm before they could stop them...

We met with the diabetes specialist again on Friday...But she seems to feel as soon as Candace has the baby the gesational diabetes will go away at that time...

I know I have neglected my blog lately...but really have not had alot of time to blog and take care of Candace...All we want is a healthy Landen James and I will do every thing in my power to see that it happens...We have gotten every thing ready for our sweet little boy to be born...I so appreciate all the prayers you have send to my little family...You girls are the best...There are days when I come home from the hospital and just want to cry and then I see the support system I have and it's like God knows my name...God Bless you all...I love you all to the Moon and back...

Until next time from my Mountain to yours,

Hugs and smiles Glria
