Hey there!
Hi! I'm Billie Jo, a wife to one and mother to four who loves all things home and family. During the day I homeschool, do laundry, and drink way excessive amounts of coffee. I would much rather read than exercise, and I am blessed to live the life I dreamed of.

Plans For St. Patrick's Day Weekend


Get out your green because St. Patrick's Day is here! This weekend is all about celebrating the green and gold. Well, sort of. My sister Margie and I and our families are taking my mom and our friend Blueberry Mary out for fish fry tonight! Sunday is Mary's birthday, and we are so happy to be able to celebrate with her.  Saturday Marian is coming! The guys have plans after Mass in the evening, so the girls and I are deciding between a crazy night out with dinner and a movie, or a quiet night in with dinner and a movie. Stay tuned.  Sunday is St. Patrick's Day, and we have awesome plans to stay home and eat festive food. And that is our exciting weekend. Hope your weekend is fun and festive too!


Celebrating today...



And in years past...




I am planning on making the fruit rainbow Sunday morning, along with some cinnamon rolls.

The countdown to my 50th birthday is on!
Six months from today I will turn 50, and in preparation, I am revisiting some quotes from some of my favorite people. Just because I can.

Have a great weekend, my friends.
Read a book, take a walk, eat that cookie.
Celebrate.

  11. Enjoy your special celebration this weekend, Dear Friend, I am resting and trying to catch up with blogging today, as it has been a busy week for me.
    I loved all the thoughts and photos, the china is so pretty, and the rainbow fruit tray is a must try for me.
    Happy Saint Patricks Day.
