Prom and The Dust is Finally Rolling.........

Hello!!  Hope everyone is doing well.  Wanted to share what all has been going on around here for the last couple of weeks.  Last weekend was our daughter, Alex's prom.  Here she is all ready to head out.  I wish I had taken pics of the back of her dress as it was partially laced up and one of her hair.  Oh, but I didn't think of those things until after she was gone.

She met up with her friends before the meal for group pictures.  Here are their corsages....those little things can get quite pricey around here.  Not sure about other places. 

 And of course  we had to get a picture of their shoes. Alex is the one with the purple Converse. She does not like heels and knew right away she wanted these.  She will get more good out of these anyway!!

   We are finally drying out enough for field work to start.  Hubby started at the end of  last week and should be half done planting corn today. (Fingers crossed)  This was the view from our porch yesterday.  Our 12 year old son  (almost 13 he reminds me) out working ground.  Cracks me up how little he looks.  Look at that dust roll. I can't believe it since we have had so much rain.  My heart goes out to all of those who have lost so much in the flooding in  Illinois where the levies were broken . I can't even imagine what they are going through. I pray for drier weather so other farmers can get into the fields soon.  

This was the scene this morning from our porch....hubby planting corn. I just love corn in front of the house!!! Nobody needs to know what goes on around here anyway!!

I picked up a couple of new prim goodies last week at The Bittersweet Cabin.  These flowers look so real!!

Cute little luminary.  I had it on my back porch until the kitties knocked it over and broke the jar!!!  So I guess it will sit on the front porch bench with the crocks.

Not too much else going on.  The gloomy weather has taken most of my motivation away.  Hopefully now that the sun is shining and it is warming up, I can find it again.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day.



  1. Melissa, your daughter looked gorgeous and comfy too! What pretty girl and her dress ...I Love the colors! Cute choice on shoes..LOL good for her for going with what she wanted! I hope she had a grand time!!

  2. That was a smart move on your daughter....most girls kick their shoes off as soon as they start dancing!

    We're still not in the fields yet.....they are calling for more rain tonight. Praying it will miss us...

  3. Your daughter looks so beautiful Melissa. How smart is she wearing sensible shoes. It isn't like you can see them under their dresses anyways. I hope she had a lot of fun at her prom.
    Enjoy your week,
