Bridal Pics...Southern Style

When time came to decide on where Haley would get her bridal pics really wasn't a hard decision...the location shoot would take place at a local SOUTHERN MANSION. The mansion was built in 1855 and it is a 13,000 sq. ft. greek revival style home...her name is...Bragg-Mitchell. The home is used for lots of weddings and wedding receptions and if there was a inside area for our band, then we would had rented this home for the reception, but you just never know how HOT it might be here on the gulf coast in late July. We were really pleased with how her pics came out...our photographers did an outstanding take a look at her SOUTHERN STYLE just might need to have a glass of SWEET TEA because this mom had a hard time just picking a few pics to share with all of y'all.
                                              Happy that you came by,

                                       It was so hard to pick our favorite for her
                                       16x20 canvas that would be on display at
                                       the reception...this is the one that we went
                              it has a SPECIAL place in our
                                      dining room and if I say so looks
                                       really good in there after the makeover at
                                                         we did last year.

Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No.72...It Was Wonderful

Hello ladies...I'm so happy to be back blogging after a week away. My week was soooo wonderful...spent several days with family and friends celebrating my daughters wedding. Everything went great with the wedding and Haley had the wedding of her dreams...I don't think I've ever seen such a calm and HAPPY bride as she was...I'm one PROUD mom to say the least. Today I'm sharing a few pics from the wedding that were taken by friends of ours. We had our photographers with us from 7:00 am-6:00 believe me...we have thousands of pics coming from the two of them. I'm still very worn out from all the I'm cutting this post short...thanks a bunch for coming by.
                                                 Two very proud parents!!!!
                                    My sweet daughters...they bring me so much joy!
                                             They are sooooo very close...when
                                             Mary Claire gave her speech at the
                                             rehersal dinner, the room was filled
                                             with tears...that girl had me crying
                                          like was one awesome speech!!

                                I will be posting her bridal pics later this week, so
                                       you can see better pics of her dress...she
                                              she had her dad speechless!!!
                                 Yes...there was a you Cam!!!

                                     She was smiling like this all day long!!!

                                 My favorite pic of the two of us...can't wait
                                 to see the ones that our photographers made.
                     As you can see...we did a lot of laughing...we all had so much

More on My Blue Creek Home Disaster

Some of you may have heard that I lost my blog over the weekend. Thankfully, I had started it at before I purchased the domain and changed it to .com. This allowed me to continue to access the blog at the blogspot address with all of the contents intact. The problem is that any links you guys have do not come to me now and most of my internal links are broken.

The man who bought my domain (fair and square, I might add) has set up house at my old blog address ( For the first few days when you visited, you were redirected to GoDadddy. Today, he suddenly has six or seven posts - a new header - some talk about interior design and decorating, and google adds. Please if you go over, don't click on anything. I don't want this guy to make a cent on my traffic to this address.

Find me at for now and please change your link address to the new blogspot address if you have my button, follow me, or have me saved to favorites/bookmark.

This has taken the wind out of my sails. I am trying to decide if it's time for a break so that I can focus 100% on little Mason and family. I will keep y'all updated.

A few of my best blog friends have offered to post this on their blog for me and I appreciate you guys. Anyone else, please feel free to copy this and post it for me -I want to keep this man from getting my traffic!

And, a word of warning to those who may own their domains - don't let it expire!!! Domain squatters are waiting like vultures in the wings to buy it. One thing I WILL NOT DO is try to buy it back from him.

I sincerely appreciate each one of you,
