Vacation Week and other updates!

Yipee!! It is vacation week! Each year my brother and his family come in from Indianapolis to enjoy the beach house on Fire Island. This year it is a 3-week stint. And why not? The alternative is central Indiana - a far cry from the Atlantic.

Vacation week at our house wasn't supposed to start off with a second floor bathroom pipe problem, but alas, it did. I guess it is expected with an old house - the pipe literally wore out. The water leaked through the first floor into a nice puddle in the basement. Needless to say, a lot of $$, a messy house, and a non-working bathroom was not the 'happy' start to time away from work.

AND I almost forgot!! We did the local craft fair on Fire Island over July 4th weekend. We had wagon t-shirts printed up and they were a HUGE hit. In addition - there was a celebrity there and she bought my 'hippie-chic' dress for her little girl - I was thrilled.
OH - we now have a 3 year-old in our house. She is so grown up - she just blocked me from the bathroom because she can go potty ALL BY HERSELF. She actually told me to get out of the bathroom! Oh the things to come...


  1. Hoping your vacation is wonderful and sun filled. Take in a deep breath of that lovely salt air for me! It's amazing how they grow, Happy Birthday to your daughter!

  2. Forget about home, there's no place like Fire Island, right?

  3. Looks like a beautiful place. Have fun!!

  4. Wonderful pictures!! Glad you are having a great time - hopefully you have more than one bathroom!
    I have 2 teenage boys, and one takes more time in the bathroom in the morning than a girl! would never survive with just one bathroom.
    Hope you have sunny warm days.

  5. Yay for vacation week(s)! Sorry about the bathroom pipe problem. Great pics!

  6. Good morning!! I have an award for you on my blog. Please come and get it.
    Have a great weekend!
