Last weekend, I did some new counter stool seat cover for a client at the shore. Which, I needed by trusty old Power Shot. In typical Heather fashion, knowing I needed it this week at home to finish valances for another client, I left it at the shore. So, to make a long story longer...I went to but another PowerShot, but, my local hardware giant was out of them. After a minute of panic, thinking I was going to have to use an old school staple gun that requires some actual labor to operate, I saw this! An electric staple gun for a mere $10 more than what I was planning on purchasing and it is also a nail gun...the possibilities are endless! My maiden voyage, with my new toy was a cinch...gently pull the trigger and there you have it! NO LABOR required! It's the little things! Happy Weekend!

School is finally out...we headed to the shore immediately following dismissal to prepare for the wedding festivities. Here in the Philadelphia/New Jersey area it has been raining, raining, raining! My brother and fiance just wanted to get married at the shore...on the beach, cocktails on the deck of the Yacht Club, the rehearsal dinner on the dock of our favorite restaurant...but, all the rain made it look like it was not going to happen! Someway, somehow, or maybe it was just the luck of the Irish it stopped raining the sun came out just in time for cocktail on the dock the night of the rehearsal. The day of the wedding cloudy, windy, looked like it was going to storm any second, BUT, again about and hour before the ceremony the skies cleared and the sun was shining!!! Amazing!!!!! MBM and I before the ceremony...I look like I an standing in a hole...that dress needs heels! My brother...the groom. Linda and her dad They didn't have a wedding party and had their parents stand up for them. I read a poem and one of Linda's sisters read a blessing. My girls...they were flower girls along with Linda's three nieces. Love this picture...new cousins as the girls call Linda's nieces, they were watching the bride and groom dance....it was so cute! It was a great night...then it rained for the rest of the weekend!

The girls modeling their loot from the sale. I made out pretty well for the girls and MBM, me, so so! I did see one of my very best friends, who I hardly get to see, so it was worth the trip!

What a whirlwind! The race is the biggest part of our weekend...kinda like planning a wedding. A year of planning and it is over in one day and you are exhausted after! MBM did a fabulous job again this year. With well over 5oo racers...we could have been nearly 7oo, that is how many people we turned away, the race raised over $40,000which is split between the City of Sea Isle to rebuild the Veterans Park and the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund Early morning set up...we started at 4:30 AM. You would not believe the riffraff wandering around at that time in the morning, not to mention the guy we woke up sound asleep on the pavement dead center in town...under the American flag. Team Semper Fi arriving...truly amazing young men! You can read more about them here! Kids, ours included, couldn't resist playing in the sand! Getting ready to swim...we had over 500 racers this year! This year we had the finish line, lined with kids waving and giving out American flags...This is Lulu and her gal pal Molly... After the race wrapped up..it was lunch, beers, nap, and beach!!!! GREAT DAY!!!
