Williams Station Day

Last weekend was Williams Station Day in Atmore, AL and we had most of the whole family together for the very first time! My parents, Brett and I, and Cory drove up to meet Jim and Marlene and then Marlene's mom, Mildred {a.k.a. MeMe}, drove up from Fort Morgan as well. That was the first time my parents had met MeMe!

Mar had a successful day of sales and, as always, had a great booth. I just love her work. :)

I haven't edited many of the photos from last weekend, but I did take a bunch on my phone. Since I'm the world's worst at keeping my photos organized, I'll share my favorites so I won't lose them!

Crow Mountain

Brett and I {along with his younger brother, Cory} drove up to Scottsboro last weekend for three reasons. We really wanted to see Jim and Mar again, I had a barn to visit in Tennessee, and it's apple season on Crow Mountain! In the 6 years that Brett and I have been together, we've never timed it to where we could get apples from the Crow Mountain orchard.

Right down the lane from the orchard was a small cemetery next to a beautiful pond. There were old {circa 1950s} wooden tables built against the treeline and some {not-so-old-but-still-not-new} outhouses nearby. I thought it would be cute to get some pictures of the boys with the outhouse. I think they turned out so cute!

These guys are so funny. I wish I had edited some of the "outtakes" from our mini-shoot. They had me cracking up something fierce. Their sense of humor is totally genetic! They get it from they Daddy!

After we came home from Crow Mountain, Mar and I shooed the boys off to the golf course so we could put our fresh apples to good use.

We turned these pretty Jonathan apples into some yummy goodies!

I made a caramel apple cheesecake and Marlene made an apple pie. Both tasted as good as they looked!

There's a good chance that we'll be able to see both of them again this weekend as well. Mar is setting up a booth at the William's Station Day in Atmore. I'm hoping that Cory can drive up and Brett, myself, and my parents can drive over. It will be nice to have the whole {extended!} family get together!

These boots were made for horse shows!

Even though my only Western Pleasure horse was sold this summer, I'm still planning to go to quite a few shows this fall and next year. And of course, horse shows mean new boots! :)


I am head over heels {no pun intended!} with these boots. Seriously. I need these babies!

Yard Sale and Turnip Greens

I woke up bright and early this morning {despite a pretty rude sinus headache} to hit up a couple yardsales with my mom. This is the first time all year that I've gone and I'm pretty excited about what all I scored for $20. I forgot to take pictures of everything before I put everything away, but I'll try for photos next time!

Brett is a happy hubby tonight because I'm breaking out some old recipes of my grandmother's for supper. Ham steaks, cornbread, and turnip greens are on the menu followed by chocolate cake for dessert. The house smells SO good right now. :)
