Holly Robinson Peete, Formerly of "The Talk" and Rodney Peete Renew Vows: 17 Years of Marriage

I think it's so beautiful when married couple people celebrated their years of marriage by renewing the vows. It can be a huge celebration or just the 2 sitting on the couch. It's a blessing when the children are there to witness. There's so much negative news regarding marriage these days. Let's celebrate the positive!

After 17 years of marriage, Holly Robinson Peete and former NFL star Rodney Peete, renewed their vows on top of the Empire State Building.
A beautifully decorated tiered cake topped with flowers.
The Robinson-Peete family also celebrated their union as well. We did the same at our vow renewal. What a great looking family!
Wow! Holly has an amazing back! Doesn't she? The dress is gorgeous!
Holly and Rodney Robinson Peete walking down the aisle. We get to see the front of her dress. I love the beading. The dark purple flowers in the bouquet are lovely!
And hubby looks very handsome in his suit.

Ugh! Our Hallway Bathroom Toilet is Overflowing!

Oh my gosh! Our hallway bathroom toilet clogged up and overflowed into the hallway!

I immediately called the emergency maintenance person to report the incident!

Marcus and I cut the water off, mopped up all the water, threw away the bath mat and drain some of the water from the toilet. (I almost threw up)

The maintenance person told us that was smart of us to turn off the water. He did unclog the toilet successful.

Now I'm going to need a carpet cleaner to do the hallway. Ugh!

Kiana Starts Her New Job This Week! Congrats Kidlet!

Kiana, me, Charles, Marcus and Sock Monkey ~ December 2010

Kiana lived with us for almost a year after needing a temporary home. My husband and I grew to really care about her.

Even though she's grown and living on her own I do chat with her. She's always going to be a member of our family.

I can finally announce that Kiki aka Kiana has secured a job in a restaurant! Charles and I are very proud of her. We wish her the very best as she starts her job this week!

Man suffers heart attack at Heart Attack Grill - FOX5 Vegas - KVVU

The Heart Attack Grill in downtown Las Vegas lived up to its name Saturday night, when a customer dining on a "triple bypass burger" suffered an apparent heart attack!

One meal, the "quadruple bypass burger" can easily exceed 8,000 calories. Yikes!

I don't know about you but I enjoy having a meal that is memorable but not like this! You may want to skip this restaurant during your visit to Las Vegas.

Organizing My Rubber Stamps, Inks and Supplies: Mission Accomplished!

I started on my organizing mission last month and will be continuing to tackle numerous projects around our home throughout the year!

This time I decided to tackle my rubber stamps, inks, supplies and tools by getting them in one location.

I found this small decorative trunk box at Big Lots. I decided to line up the stamps on their side to make most of the space. My glitter, stamps, glue gun and embossing gun also have space.

Hubby Got a Raise! We Love You!

This is the shirt my husband wears when he's driving a bus on The Strip!

My husband phoned me this morning to let me know he got a pay raise! Marcus and I are so proud of him. He works long hours to provide for us.

"Thanks Dad for providing for us"! "You're such a great provider"!

Happy Valentine's Day from BerryMorins Bits & Tips

It's Time for My Nero Wolfe Fix!

Once a year Marcus and I will put Nero Wolfe, starring Timothy Hutton on our Netflix queue.

The writing and acting is terrific but Marcus also got hooked on the fashions, cars and the music of the '50's.

Menu Plan Monday ~ February 13, 2012

Happy Valentine's Day to you! Hubby and I celebrated on Sunday. He now has the weekends off so it was fun to spend it with him.

On Sunday, we took a walk, ended up at Big Lots, did some window shopping, test drove the office chairs and took a ride on on a patio swing. We always have the best time together.

I'll be doing our grocery shopping on Friday so our plan might change due to the grocery store weekly flyers.

Thanks to Organizing Junkie and Susie QTPies for hosting their Menu Plan Mondays.

Jumping Tandem: Sunday ~ February 12, 2012

I'm participating in Jumping Tandem: Sunday linky party today!

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV)
