Decorating is endless.
Cooking never ends.
Gardens are always changing.
And best of all shopping goes on and on!

Hence the name,
Open Ended!

Have ya missed me?

First of all I have been crazy busy
and then Blogger had a few issues.
I wrote this post last night only to find out the photos
wouldn't load and my my entire post did a disappearing act.
I kept checking back and finally things are
up and running so here we go!!

~Summertime with the Nieces~

Almost every summer I have my
nieces come to stay for several days.
And since my kids are all grown up
I look so forward to these visits!

We started out with a little swim in the pool.

Nothing like a little sun bathing and floating in the pool.

Even my daughter couldn't resist
a little pool lounging(in her work clothes).

You see she is a grown up now with a real job.
So she could only stop by for a minute.
Deep down I think sometimes she misses being a kid!:-)

Next it was off to a chick flick!

And since the movie started at 11:40 am, it was time for lunch!
So Aunt Cindy had the great idea to have a Movie Picnic!
That's when you break the rules
and sneak a little lunch in to the movie.

This will be our little secret.....shhhh.....

The movie was cute and the girls thought
Ashton Kutcher was even cute-r!!

And let me tell you it was hard on this mature women
to sit through a movie with Ashton Kutcher in it. ;-)
But anything for the nieces!!

Then we decided to use an idea from
Tracey at French Larkspur and make a little sugar scrub.
The recipe is on her blog and it was so easy and tons of fun.

The girls made some for there friends and
of course one jar for themselves.

Great job girls.
Your friends will love them!

Girls just gotta have Fun!!

the night before they left Uncle Mike sprung for a
wonderful dinner at a new organic restaurant.
And surprisingly, the meat and potatoes guy really enjoyed it too!

Thank you Emma & Elyse, I love to have you come!
It gives me an excuse to relax and have fun!

Now... I have to think up some fun stuff
for when the nephews come to visit!
