A Tea Break…

We chose Attic Secrets in Marysville for our tea on the Saturday after Thanksgiving since we planned to shop at the Navy Exchange Complex afterwards.

My sister Lana, Sister-in-law Letty, Me, DIL Laura and daughter Katie.

We each chose our teacups and brought them to our table and selected our tea.

We were so pleased to see a gluten free tea choice for Letty on the menu, too.

After our lovely leisurely tea we headed to the Navy Exchange to do a little tax free shopping. We made a couple more stops to Cost Plus, Hobby Lobby, and a grocery store before heading back to Josh and Laura’s to see what the guys accomplished. Besides their construction project Josh managed to make a great pot of chili and a pan of gluten free cornbread for us all to enjoy. Here are the construction project collages!

A useless door in Josh and Laura’s family room that was a drafty nuisance! Out with the door.

In with new framing, plywood, and insulation.

New tar paper on the exterior and matching siding.

New drywall and mud on the inside waiting for a few more coats and then sanding before a paint job and added baseboard. These workers are done with their job for the day!

We enjoyed the great chili and cornbread and pomegranate margaritas. Some of us headed home while another group stayed and played some rip roaring table games.

  1. Boy, you not only get a lot done when your family and friends come together, you have fun doing it ! I love seeing the tea room. Tea with women you love is a special blessing.

  2. What a fun day you tea-drinking ladies had! You look like a jolly bunch.

    The men got some good work done. Glad you fed and watered them well!!!

  3. That tea place Attic Secrets reminds me of the lovely place you took us too a couple of years ago… Such ‘girl fun’ … while the guys work! smile
