  1. hey y’all – great list! Those tulips are so pretty! Maria – I like #6 The saggy Lob. They didn’t have a #8. Which one again did you like? Can’t wait to see the final result. Is your project a new cookbook? Y’all have a great day!!

  2. Beautiful Tulips!
    So great that Maria’s dad can enjoy them too after planting them with Maria.
    Have a fabulous family weekend!

  3. I went to see the Margaret movie this week & it was cute. Won’t win any awards, but entertaining. And Judy Blume makes a cameo appearance at the beginning – watch carefully. I don’t understand the hubbub about banning this book. There’s nothing offensive about it.

    Get the #6 haircut – it’s cute!
