Hello and happy Sunday. Just back from PB and had such a great time, so many highlights that I cannot wait to share with you next week (and this might be my best Bluff Diaries ever)! Back to the grind:) Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. It’s rainy and cool….certainly not the glorious weather we had in PB. But I know in due time spring will be here and I am counting down the minutes. Hope you have a great week and now it’s time for a little relaxation, don’t you say? ________________ 1 MAJOR TOLE EXCITEMENT! I was doing a little happy dance when I got these progress pictures back… I mean seriously how beautiful are these planters! Also the tray tables are almost done and this order will soon be on it’s way in time for an early April delivery, just in time for spring planting. I already have my planters chosen for PB:) And some floral excitement too:) Check out my new official favorite florals in our large trellis and floral bowl, whether pink or white….think these are just stunning and just made one up for my center hall table, best part of course is no maintenance.

This was sooooooo good. I could easily make a meal of this. Here is how I made it- Ingredients- 4 avocados, juice of 1 lime, 1/2 onion (chopped small), 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, sea salt and pepper, coriander (to taste), half of a very ripe tomato (cut small), 3-4 tortilla shells Directions- I cut the avocados in half and lightly mashed them with a fork, added the cilantro, salt and pepper then tomato. I then squeezed the lemon juice (to taste) and seasoned with salt and pepper For the tortillas, I put them in a skillet with a teeny bit of olive oil and cooed them for 1-2 minutes just until they are semi hard. Then I cut them in small triangles and served while hot….YUM! 3 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST Never ever at a loss of stunning pictures to share with you…..just love this weekend’s batch! So much beauty to be found, and alwayts happy to share newly discovered accounts as well…. 4. THREE HEROES TO BE INSPIRED BY. Not a day goes by that I am still not thinking about the horrific massacre that occurred on Feb 14th and to see the outcry and demand for change is giving me hope that we will lessen the chances of this happening again. To hear about the deputies who WERE WAITING OUTSIDE as these kids and teachers were being massacred outraged me. I just can’t imagine being one of those parents and hearing this….that their kids were not even fully protected by those we trust to protect. But not everyone was such a coward that day, there were three exceptional heroes, real men who put their lives on the front line to save the children. Sadly all lost their lives doing so but what remarkable men. This story highlighted what they did so well, definitely worth the read. I hope their legacy will not only be to remember them for the heroes they were, but for being the catalyst for change to protect America’s children. 5. A MOST BEAUTIFUL BLUE AND WHITE REHEARSAL DINNER I had such a great time getting to live vicariously through this mother of the groom planning out the rehearsal dinner they were hosting in Florida. She knew she wanted to use my blue and white pieces and hired me to help her plan this out, she along with her florist went to work to fill them with flowers in the blues, purples and greens. And needless to say the effect was just incredible. She was such a joy to work with and I was so happy to hear it was such a success. Imagine the thrill in getting these pictures back….so spectacular! Susan thank you so much for letting me share these with my readers who I know like me, will be in all their blue and white glory getting to see them. 6. Are you a Series watcher/binge watcher? I never was, but we did really enjoy Suits and Billions. We had heard so much talk about Homeland over time and one night I turned it on thinking my husband might enjoy it. We………we watched it and couldn’t stop. It was so fascinating, had so many twists and turns, took you all over world, and allowed the viewer to step inside those secretive walls of the CIA. It was addicting! The cast is so talented, led by Clare Danes who is brilliant as Carrie. We watched all the seasons and now are caught up to continue every Sunday night. My next “project” has just begun, into 5 shows of the first season of The Crown which I am loving so far. And you? Any suggestions? Never thought I would join the growing ranks of being a binge watcher:) 7. SUNDAY’S SURVEY I was at CVS the other day and needed Advil, so I wandered on over and what should have taken less than 1 minute to pick up and move on took more like 4 drawn out minutes. Who knew there are now so many variations of Advil!!!! Ridiculous, there was regular Advil, extra strength Advil, Advil for migraines, Advil for allergies and it went on. I almost felt my knees buckling over the choices and trying to remember which my husband prefers. I mean, come on……essentially these all have to do the same thing, right? And this type of required brain power does not stop with Advil, I feel like it is with everything now…..too many choices is not a good thing. Surely I cannot be alone. Your thoughts on the matter? That is a wrap for this Sunday. Hope you have a wonderful and enjoyable Sunday. Always appreciate you stopping in and making TEH part of your Sunday morning routine. Until next time…… PS Last day to take advantage of special savings, 20% off ALL planters and that includes the tole and porcelain planters, even the Provence planters! Click here to visit the shop.
