Time to Hang Up the Rain Boots and Bring Out the Sunshine


We had a nice sunshiny day for Easter.  Perfect for a grill out and  egg hunt.  It took us an hour to find the prize egg.  I forgot where I hid it.  Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this otherwise, my family's diagnosis may stick. (I did hide more than one prize egg.)

Even though the rain has dissipated, I'm on the lookout for rain boots.  I just think they are cute.  Check these out.







I'll probably settle on these affordable pair from Target and place them next to my umbrella holder in the foyer.


Speaking of being on the lookout, here's my little son looking out on a beautiful view last week.

It's from The Pinnacle Club in Augusta, GA.  We were there for a dinner honoring the Doc and 13 others who were being inducted to AOA.  

"Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, a professional medical organization, recognizes and advocates for excellence in scholarship and the highest ideals in the profession of medicine. Their values include honesty, honorable conduct, morality, virtue, unselfishness, ethical ideals, dedication to serving others, and leadership. Members have a compelling drive to do well and to advance the medical profession and exemplify the highest standards of professionalism."

Guess you could say, we were pretty much on top of the world that day. 

Thanks to everyone for all the nice comments you wrote last week.  I have enjoyed reading them all. 
Trying to get back in the blog groove. 
Last week to enter giveaway!

I don't know that I could slosh around in the rain in Coach boots. Love the colorful ones above them! What a great way to brighten up a grey day. The polka-dotted Target boots are really fun, too. Glad you had a nice trip. Another big congrats to the hubs. Such an incredible honor. Thanks for sharing.

I was beginning to worry that I was the only person who forgets where she puts things! I am currently looking for a white platter that I needed for Easter dinner yesterday! I guess I need to start writing down where I put stuff! :)

MeMeSue said...

Is that your fence with the boots? I ADORE that!! I love the look of the boots but I don't know if I could wear feet have become pretty fickle as I've gotten older! LOL

Sarah said...

Beatrice, first off congratulations to the Doc. What a terrific honor! Cute photo! No rain boots here, though I've envied the ones I've seen. Need to add these to my list, but we've been in a drought for so long that rain hardly appears in our vocabulary these days. Still they would be fun. Love the shot of the boots hanging on the fence all planted with sunny flowers. Cute idea.
Hope you find the missing egg.
Hugs ~ Sarah

Love the boots!! I wish I could put ours away, it is supposed to rain all week!
Your little man is so handsome and that view is beautiful. :)

That is too funny, forgetting where the prize egg was. Oh well, at least your husband didn't say that the Easter Bunny must be getting lazy because of where "he" hid the easter basket this year for my step-son. Umm, I guess laziness could be the correct term. We always hide the baskets for the kids, and now only one kid qualifies for hide and seek baskets, as the other kids are now MEN!

Loretta said...

What a clever idea! Hugs!

Amanda said...

Congratulations to the Doc! Those wellies on the fence are a fabulous idea, so cute! I have the sweetest pair of polka dot wellies, no idea where they are though, your not alone in forgetting things!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Great boots and congrats to the Doc. Great recognition.

raggygirlvintage said...

Congrats to your hubby and the wonderful wife and family who support him:-)
I love wellies too but never find them all that comfy! I do love those kids boots planted up with flowers though, I tend to pick up cute kids shoes, skates etc when I see them....
oh, and when we had guests for Easter dinner yesterday someone sat on an egg hidden in the sofa, so yes, we're still finding the forgotten eggs too!!

Pamela Gordon said...

Tammy, you are not alone. I count the eggs so that I'll know how many I am hiding. I hide the eggs, then forget where I hid them and how many I hid. LOL!!!

Shirley said...

Oh I need new boots too. Even if we have no rain some days, the boots protect me from all creepy things at the edge of our property..snakes, nesting bees and who knows what else lurks under the leaves..I love the red one's...

Best Wishes..

Those boots filled with flowers along that picket fence, are so freakin' cute! And of course, the other pairs are nothing to "sneeze at" either!

Dayle said...

I'm so diggin those rain boots on the fence. Too cute! I bought an old pair of rainboots a couple years back. I display them with flowers on my drop-leaf antique table in my foyer. They get so many compliments, and they're just plain jane. Love the idea of doing different colors though.

Congrats to your husband! Awesome.

I'm in love with the red boots with the bow. I've lived in my Hunter boots for the past 6 months-I'm ready to stow them away for a bit.

Bringing Pretty Back said...

I have always wanted a cute pair of these boots , but have never gotten any. They are darling aren't they!
I know! I understand, I can NOT WAIT to finally be in the new little house. We have lived in this house for almost 20 yearsand I don't like it. It has never been "me". Always just made do with everything. I am so excited to finally decorate with the colors and things I LOVE.
Hopefully we will both be settled soon!
Have a pretty day!
