Pink Saturday - Catching up

Wow! What a week it has been!  The last week of school for K-Bear, Tiger and Dragon.  M-Lyons had a fabulous play date on Monday and I spent most of the week glued to ESPN hollering at footballers-
And can you believe it?  Greece & South Korea are battling for number 2 in their group and England and the United States are as well.  What?  We are of course cheering for USA and South Korea.  North Korea played an amazing game against Brazil.  I hope they do well-

Tuesday night I ran out to meet my friend M at the Kimball Theater in Williamsburg to see the Swedish Movie The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  Sadly it was sold out, so we went to the Fat Canary instead for a glass of wine.  I had a Spanish Rioja which was lovely as was the conversation.

Wednesday was a playdate at the park.

Thursday I took the younger two to the library to begin our summer project (family project re: revolutionary war) and attempted to get some laundry done.

Friday my friend Susan came over with her three kids.  The kids played well and Susan and I talked about her role as Martha Washington for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.  Fascinating.  And Nana came to have rootbeer floats with the kids for their last day of school.

And now it is time for Pink Saturday again!

I was out and about last week at the Williamsburg Antique Mall while M watched my kids. I was looking for white dishes with gold trim to use for our Cocktail Party last Saturday (catered by Florimontes - fabulous!) And saw these ones with the pink rose border. They reminded me of dishes my mom had. I thought they were "Baba's" (my great grandmother Fitzgerald) but I showed the photo to mom today and she said they were Nana Eitelbach's. Cool. Either way they evoke feelings of home, hearth and happiness and I may just go back and buy them. Mom was going to check hers at home and see if they had any markings that would help me know if these are the same or just similiar.

Pink Saturday is hosted weekly by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound please stop in for a visit.

Beverly also features participating bloggers, so stop by and see who she is featuring this week.

And I would like to encourage you to stop by Dog Mom Diva. I am new to her blog but she hooked me with her last Pink Saturday post- all about aprons! and they are cute!

What a nice way to start the summer vacation, with root beer floats. It could be a tradition.

I love those dishes. They really are pretty and do evoke special feelings. I hope you end up getting them. I love special, unique dishes and I love finding them at different places. They can make a home so special.

Happy Pink Saturday!!! I enjoy your pink, so much.
Here's to the start of a Happy Summer.

I saw "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" last weekend. The book was better than the movie, in MHO
