RUMOR HAS IT...I'M IN ROMANTIC HOMES!


Our 4th of July fireworks display is shot off the island and at dusk, a zillion boats go out on the lake and anchor to watch.  The number of guests we now have for the holiday has made it impossible to go out, so we walk down to the boat launch to watch it.  It was spectacular, as always.

So, run out and get your copy of Romantic Homes at Walgreens, CVS or your favorite grocery store.  And remember, you never know who is watching your blog! :)

XO,
Jane

Congratulations!!! That is so exciting and I will have to hunt up an issue! Blogging is so fun! Saturday Amber and Mike + the quads + us + the nanny all went to lunch at Gloria's and someone recognized us from our blogs. Turns out she used to work with Sabrina and had spread the word back on those dark June days of 2012 when we were praying so hard for Harrison to make it! We felt like celebrities!

sissie said...

I saw it Jane and I'm so excited for you. Maybe one day I'll get my few minutes of fame. I think it's always a blogger's dream to be featured in Romantic Homes.

Love reading about your fun time at the Lake house.

Karen said...

Well congrats to you!....

and your lakeside retreat is such an awesome place to share with family and friends, and get some rest and relaxation in yourself! We are constantly on the lookout for something like it not too far from here, so far, no luck in our price range. (small... lol).

Angela Ryder said...

Congratulations, Jane!! I will definitely pick up a copy!! Your lakeside home looks so awesome! What a wonderful place to make special memories with family and friends!~~Angela

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Jane! So excited for you!! GRATS!!

I won a copy of Romantic Homes and just got it a few days ago and haven't read it yet - gotta do so!

I am so glad you enjoyed almost your entire holiday. Sounds like where I grew up on Lake Erie - we had islands and a sand bar and everyone swims, boats, water skis, jet skis, etc. I do get terribly homesick in the summertime, as I live inland now. A person never outgrows the water love.

Now: loose cobblestones. Not good.
Six years ago I tripped on some almost just like that, on an incline. I lost footing, built u p momentum, and by the time I fell down the hill I broke 3 left ribs, my left elbow and right writst and arm. Oh y es, having both arms in casts in fun stuff, my friend.

I am SO sorry you twisted your ankle, that hurts like the dickens - but am glad you didn't end in casts like I did. That was so humiliating now even being able to scratch my own nose or use the restroom alone. My daughters saved me in that department, came to live with me for a while. And my hubs earned his wings.

Thanks for your visit - big hugs and prayers for quick healing! Stay off that ankle till it heals!

Penny said...

Great news Jane. I will go get a copy of Romantic Home next time I am at the grocery store. Good luck to Al on his surgery. I know healing will be easier sitting by the water. Hope your ankle is better.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Congrats on the feature! That is so exciting! I know I would be on cloud nine :)

Hope you have a great week!

Traci said...

It sounds like a fabulous weekend! Sending prayers to your husband. Hope all goes well & he recovers quickly. That's so awesome about your blog in the magazine!

Cozy Little House said...

Congrats! (Go buy another copy anyway.)
Brenda

Melanie said...

Before you even posted this, I bought a copy of Romantic homes a few days ago ONLY because you were in it! :-) So exciting. I shoved it in Brian's face and said, "Look, look, Jane is in here!" And he was like, "Uh huh." I don't think men are too impressed by these things. Oh well. lol

Sounds like you had a fantastic time at the lake house and oh my, those pies look so delicious!

I will be keeping Al in my prayers tomorrow. Love and blessings to you both! Will send you a private email later today. xoxo

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

Jane, I saw it in Romantic Homes and was SO excited for you!! I think it's awesome and so deserved! We went to the lake for four days over the 4th and you might have noticed in the weather forcasts....it has RAINED ALOT DOWN HERE!!!! Rained every.single.day!!! :( BUT, we made the best of it and had fun despite the weather! lol Hope you are having a great summer!

Lou Cinda :)

Keep Calm and Decorate said...

Oh my gosh! You are a celebrity now. I must go pick up a copy. Congratulations on your magazine feature! :)

Shelia Williamson said...

Hi Janie! Oh, I'm so sorry you hurt you tiny ankle! I know sprains can hurt a lot more than a broken bone. Sounds like you had a great 4th though! Loved seeing all of those cute little fuzzy faces! I'm so proud for you being in the magazine. I just don't buy them anymore and will have to go and get it just because you're in there!
Be a sweetie,
Shleia ;)

Kelly said...

Congrats on being mentioned in the magazine! I just saw it today, btw. I have to say, it was fun to see the Boston Terrier in the crate. He's a different color than mine. I bet he loved being at the lake! Looks like y'all had a great holiday.

chateau chic said...

Kim Wilson said...

Yay! Congratulations Jane! How exciting! ;)

Tammy @ A Walk in the Countryside said...

Congratulations! What an honor! It looks like ya'll had a great time on the 4th! The lake we usually go to is closed this summer! Last year during a hurricane, the dam came close to bursting so they drained the lake for repairs! I do miss going there with the kids to ride the jet skis!

Babs said...

Now that's the perfect way to celebrate the 4th..or any holiday. Congratulations, too, on being in Romantic Homes. I'll check it out at the store. Thanks.

Low Tide High Style said...

Jane, congratulations on RH, you so deserve it, and yes buy a bunch of copies! I will look for it at the store. I'm sorry about your ankle, but it looks like you guys had an amazing holiday! And I hope your husband's surgery went well...sorry I just read about it!

Sorry about your ankle but it sounds like you have a wonderful holiday celebrating with family and friends.

Hi Jane, I am trying to catch up with friends this evening. It has been hot and I don't handle that to well. I enjoyed your blog and even if it was only a paragraph it is still an honor. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

OMG Jane,
That is so cool!
Yes I am dying to know what they wrote, now to see if our local wally had any copies.
Sorry I am so late getting around to visit, it's just been one of those weeks.
