~Washi Tape, Flowers, Food Ideas, Maggie's First Boat Ride and Simple & Sweet Fridays #221~

I found lots of pretty washi tapes in different prints.
I went into the garden and started cutting flowers.
I made some cards.

Then I started to add them in a collage.

I love them displayed on a vintage board.
Carly and I surprised Stan with a light lunch.
Instead of bread, we made lettuce wraps!

I picked some of our apples this weekend.
Of course, 
it was time for an apple pie!!
I couldn't resist these beautiful sunflowers from Trader Joe's!
We took our lab, Maggie,
 for her first boat ride.
She's 12  1/2 now and loves the water.
I guess, we were always afraid she might jump off the boat.
Because of her age, we knew this was time to try and take her.
Justin, Carly's boyfriend helped out with watching her too!

The view of San Diego was beautiful!
When we anchored the boat near Sea World, 
Maggie couldn't wait to jump out!
It was a fun day watching her swim in Mission Bay!
Maggie loved her first boat ride!

  15. love your flowers with washi tape.

  16. Thanks for hosting and have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

  17. How sweet that your Maggie got to go on her first boat ride. We have life jackets for our two dogs too but still have to keep an eye on them so they try to jump off and take a swim. Thank you for the party Jody and Stan.

  18. Loved your Washi tape floral collage, Jody.

  19. You have so much going on, my fave friend! That washi tape is fun but you've taken it to a whole new level!

    Your lettuce wraps look so much more appetizing than mine, and I love them when I'm trying to avoid carbs. Thanks!

    Yay! A boat trip. Soon I hope for us as our home is renovated. Milo at 28 pounds has always had me on my toes on the boat. I'm hard on him about climbing the seats. We've tossed him off the dock so we know he can swim but seeing land is much better.

    Thanks for stopping!


  20. Jody - another beautiful post. I love the simplicity of the cards you made. How sweet!

  21. Maggie looks great for 12 1/2! Our Lab is almost 4 and thinks he's a rock star. Everyone he meets he thinks they love him and has to have attention.

    I hope she has many more healthy years. Dogs are the best!

  22. Jody, thanks so much for featuring my garden shed post! Love your flower collage with the washi tape! Apple pie looks delicious! Maggie appears to have enjoyed the ride! Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Pam @ Everyday Living

  23. Jody, this little flower idea is so clever. What a great gift this is for someone special. And the tapes in different prints are delightful. The lettuce wraps look soooooo good.....and healthy. Your apple pie looks scrumptious, and I wish I had a piece to go with my coffee this Saturday morning. Your dog is so sweet. What a fun boat ride for her.

    Happy Memorial Day weekend, my friend.

    love, ~Sheri

    1. it was good seeing pics of San Diego again. I really miss it. Such a beautiful place and rich in history. :)

  24. Such a great post, I want to comment on everything - the lettuce wraps, the flower collage, the boat ride. I could go on :-)

  25. Maggie is so sweet! Our Chocolate Gousse (pronounced goose) is 10 years old. She has her good days and bad with arthritis. Mr D and I pray that she lives into the first year of our retirement in two years. We want to be home to love on her all we can.

    Jody, your Washi Tape cards are the perfect "cheer"!
