date night at the Peach O Rama!

one of my favorite places to shop is 
 this time of year they have 
 a sweet promotion called...

the promo has it's own website 
and peachy market bags!
on your way to the perfect peaches, 
the bakery is filled

with sweet peach whimsy!

but the star of the show is...

right here, center stage in the 

the produce department,

with measured sweetness!

Degrees Brix (symbol °Bx) is the sugar content of an aqueous solution.
One degree Brix is 1 gram of sucrose in 100 grams of solution and represents the strength of the solution as percentage by weight (% w/w) (strictly speaking, by mass). If the solution contains dissolved solids other than pure sucrose, then the °Bx is only approximate the dissolved solid content. The °Bx is traditionally used in the wine, sugar, fruit juice, and honey industries.

i know...this is serious peach speak!

do you think mr D. had an ulterior motive
on this date night?

my sporting life...

i have a little secret...
i love football!
 i'm not real crazy about the pros...
but i love the college experience. i enjoy the game,
 but i LOVE the excitement, the energy,
the joy and the music that surrounds the game!

one of my favorite reads (and movie) is 
The Blind Side.  it's not an epic...but it's a story about  a
MOM...Leigh Anne Tuohy...(who just happens to be an interior designer!)
Sandra Bullock won the academy award for
her performance. the experience of making the movie inspired her to
 become a mom. at the beginning of the book / movie
there is a monologue that really hit home with me.
here is just a snippet!
it starts Mississippi...
...and ends with...
 "Because, as every housewife knows, the first check you write is for the mortgage,
but the second is for the insurance. The left tackle’s job is to protect
 the quarterback from what he can’t see coming. 
To protect his blind side. " Leigh Anne Tuohy

a mom "get's" to play (and teach)
the positions of quarterback and left tackle.

a mom "get's" to wear an invisible
 number one fan jersey every day.

my son's bio...

the sporting life has enriched our family. it has given us joy
and has taught us many lessons along the way.

I'm ready!

i'll be standing at kick off!
