Getting Ready


My front porch plants were just sitting on the concrete floor so Dear suggested I look for a plant stand. Don’t have to suggest to me twice to shop for something we need want. So on my way to buy replacement batteries for our garage door openers I went to Ross and found this Plant stand that folds up!


I love the details on the metal. It was Tuesday so they give us older gals an extra 10% off! Sweet!


Now my three plants are nice and tidy and up off the concrete.

On the shopping note we are getting ready for a big Bagdanov family weekend. My nephew Tim is getting married to Jessica a week from this Saturday. Since we are going to cram a few extra bodies into our condo for part of the week I went in search of an extra aero bed. We have a queen size one and we’re adding a twin size one.

We are very pleased with this product!

Got some jersey sheets that were on sale to go with the bed…

Our son and his wife are flying in on Tuesday night and our daughter and brother’s family are flying in on Thursday. Family Day at Disneyland is planned for Thursday for whoever is here. It will be interesting to see when I can fit in some blogging as I’m also in charge of catering the Rehearsal dinner. I’ve got lots of help for that but it takes a lot of creative mind effort to pull it off. My family is wonderful at pulling together and making an event happen so I’m not concerned. If I don’t get around like usual you will all understand why…

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Hi Ellen,
    It sounds like you have a busy week ahead of you but, I’m sure it will be lots of fun. Hey, I’m going to be at Disneyland on Thursday to! Maybe We’ll bump into each other.
    While you’re there don’t miss the California Grand Hotel. I’ve been trying to get over there because I wanted to do a post on it. It has the most beautiful architecture as it’s done in the Craftsman style and their Story Teller Cafe has great food (pricey tho). Have a great week preparing.

  2. Busy times ahead for you! I quite sympathize with the Austen quote in your previous quote. It has been hot – the cats have solved the problem by lounging on terrazo tiles. Wish I could do the same.

  3. Gotta love Ross; and your cute plant stand!

    What a busy but fun weekend for you and your family. I look forward to the pictoral report after you’ve taken a breather when it’s over.

  4. Love the new addition to your garden. Did not know about Ross’ discount. Have a wonderful time of family togetherness.

  5. Hi Ellen,

    Love that plant stand!!! I can’t wait to hear how the wedding prep is coming together on your end. You are a sweetheart for catering the rehearsal dinner, but I am sure it will be a lot of fun!!!

  6. The Bagdanov’s are rarely not busy :+) I can imagine how wonderful the food is going to be that you and probably your sister’s are going to make. Relax and enjoy!
