Fall Friday!


It’s FRIDAY!!!

I love this day and I love the 80’s.


Honestly I think this is like the best day of the week.  THE. BEST.  It’s the kickoff to the weekend.  The time that Banjo is off school, Audi is off work, and we can just have family time.  And… it’s fall so that makes it doubly dandy.



I mean seriously?  How can you not love the hue of that red?

Tell me.  How can you not LOVE it?!  It’s super, duper dandy.

I’m thinking that I need to take some more fall pictures and put them in some photo books to preserve the memories.  Then I’ll get to view them all year long and not just in fall.

I think I might be just a tad gaga over fall Friday.

Too much?

Okay.  Moving on.

Putting the season of fall aside… Why do I like this day so very much.  Well, this day reminds me that I get to have an entire dandy weekend.  A dandy weekend of family fun.  A dandy weekend of family games.  A dandy start to weekend that culminates with church on Sunday.  That’s what we do on the weekends around here.  We spend time with family and then attend worship services on Sunday.  Then we work all week until the next Friday.  Yay for Fridays!

What do you love about Friday and what do you do on the weekend?

A dandy Friday to all!!!

Tears. I have tears.

Hello my Dandies!  I just came across this music video and I’m seriously in awe.   This talented musician is a friend to my nieces and such a beautiful person; both inside and out.  She is actually legally blind and such an inspiration to me.  Her music literally brought tears to my eyes.  It’s just so very touching.  Enjoy.

It was beyond beautiful outside yesterday.  Audi was in lectures all day and got out of work early at 3pm.  (Every so often he gets to spend all day in lectures on medical topics like:  Hearing loss, throat cancer, etc.  Exciting, right?)  So the kids and I picked him up from work and we headed to the St. Louis Zoo.  How better to spend a glorious early evening outside?


Here in St. Louis we have one of the top zoos in the nation.  And…  It’s free!  That’s right there is absolutely no entrance fee to our zoo and that’s not just for residents.  If you come to St. Louis on vacation then you too can experience our zoo for free!  (Along with our free art museum and free science center.)  Thanks to the generous donations of so many wonderful, giving St. Louisans.

Every summer the zoo has bands perform in the evenings.  It’s always packed.  We of course picked to go to the zoo on band evening.  😉

The Piano Guys Christmas

I’ve always loved this beautiful musical arrangement and my husband has known these guys since high school:


They are so very talented!

Happiest of holidays to you all!

There’s still time to get your free $10 to use at Zulily!  Banjo may want Santa to bring him a Bumblebee Transformer for Christmas, but I want Santa to bring him a guitar.  Maybe this green one?


Or in blue?


If Ruby was old enough I have a feeling that Santa would be bringing her one of these violins:

Love the colors!

Maybe I can find her one in a few years.  Ahem.  I mean maybe Santa’s elves can create one for her in a few years.  😉

All of the above can be found a Zulily and are at major savings right now!
