Our baby girl....she's the most wonderful granddaughter one could hope for!
We talked about the night  she was born, her graduation from Kindergarten,
 her soccer games, her little cheerleading team, her close relationship with her baby brother,
 her love for animals, her unconditional loyalty to her long time friends and
 her amazing skills at varsity volleyball! 
She is our one and only granddaughter and 
like all grandma's, I am choosing to brag on her a bit! 
We celebrated the fifteenth year of this darling girl! 

An "Abbie selfie" making Maine Grandma "tickled pink!"
I often discover surprise selfies on my phone and 
it never fails to reduce me to puddles of laughter! 

On Thursday, she celebrated with friends at a Mexican restaurant in Burleson! 

On Saturday evening we met for dinner at The Cheesecake Factory in Southlake!

The Birthday Girl chose Red Velvet for her birthday sweet ending! 
I love birthdays that are a family affair!
She cannot wait to obtain her driver's learning permit! Remember those days?
Oh my lawd!

 This was my Saturday find.....oh be still my heart....
A touch of spring in the kitchen! 
The tulips and the gorgeous vase 
(adding this to my new collection of French Country)
were only $13.00! 

Mae Mo got her Valentine gift early....a plush pink blanket for her bed....
I knew she would be pretty in pink! 

She has my heart!
Snug as a bug in a rug.....

We are preparing for a visit from Atlanta this week....
got the to make a run to Costco for her signature Chardonnay! 

Hey, have y'all tried these yet?
They are fab! 
Less calories than Starbucks and taste divine!
My new guilty pleasure! 

The weather was just gorgeous here in Texas!
The darling was able to play a round of golf on Sunday!

We also did a lot of this!
How was your weekend?
