Hey there!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  We celebrated my Dad's 70th birthday.  Yes, that cake was shining bright!

I told you a little about my Dad earlier, remember the glimpses of his garage?

The family had a great time partying together, and my sisters got a big kick out of this photo, since it looks like the wheat is shooting out of my head.  I told them it was just my crown.  :)

We spent some time at my sister's house on Saturday, and I had to share this photo of Emily.  My exposure was messed up but we thought it was funny...she's already ready for Halloween!

For those of you who are local, I wanted to share a fun shopping opportunity with you that will happen this weekend.  On Saturday, Nov. 2, there will be an India Jewelry Sale held at our church.  This sale is held to validate the business platform of a missionary family living in India.  Exporting the jewelry provides them with their business visa and gives them an identity in the community.  All profits from the sale go to the Southern Baptist International Mission Board.

 I've been to this sale in the past and am so impressed with the huge selection and variety offered.  Pieces are priced between $2-$12, so you can get lots of Christmas shopping done!  These are a few samples of what will be available, but you can see more on the India Jewelry Sale Facebook page.  The sale will be on Saturday from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at Quail Springs Baptist Church, 14613 N. May Avenue, OKC, 73134.  (Enter on the North side at the archway, Cash or Check only.)

I'll be stopping by, I hope to see you there!

Finally, I normally don't post on the weekend, but Saturday was my day to share my Modern and Fresh Fall home tour.  If you missed it you can catch it here.

We had a few outtakes from the photos...

Happy Monday everybody!
