Awwwwwww. So many people were stopping to take photos and to watch. Not like we could hear it or anything, nor did any of us know the couple getting married... yet we were fascinated just the same.
I never thought I would be interested in an airshow but I liked it!
So after seeing a wedding and an air show... it was no surprise to find this guy singing and swinging his hips along the boards.
The only thing Dear Bebe was interested in was watching the seagulls. A little something for everyone, I guess!

We are having her party this weekend so to keep it low key but to celebrate her day Dear Hubs and I just had small cupcakes (the only ones he could find were Halloween themed!) and she opened one present.
The funniest moment was when she didn't know what the cupcake was all about and promptly tossed it on the floor.
Sometimes you just have to laugh. But then as you can see by the photo, she figured it out!
We have Ms. Daisy coming to see us and Mrs. Tuneful (my Sister and her family)

At the back of the store is a glass window where you can see the staff making the taffy.

But Dear Bebe still got an afternoon of being on the beach for the first time. She wasn't sure what to do with the shovel. Dear Hubs gave her a helping hand.
We'll be back soon to show you more pictures. We saw an air show too while out on the beach. It was really cool! I even managed to do some antique shopping and found some really nice pieces. I'll be showing them either on this blog or the Bella Rosa blog.
I'm still trying to recooperate from the vacation. Why is it we seem more tired from a "relaxing" trip to the beach????

I don't remember now what made me want to do it. Maybe I saw an ad somewhere or maybe it had been my recent stint back on the stage dancing, but I decided to audition for a local theatre production of Steel Magnolias.
To tell you the truth, I really didn't think I was going to get a part. I had never really acted before, I'd always been in the chorus or the dance troupe in high school... and well, that had been quite some time ago.
But it was either my skills learned while working in TV or maybe it was the fact I had red hair. It turns out the young woman who landed the role of Shelby (the Julia Roberts character) was a redhead so it must have made logical sense to select me. Or, maybe I actually did a good job in my audition.
Either way, I had NO IDEA what I was getting myself into. I hadn't seen the movie in eons. I mean, I really didn't realize which character I could be getting. I was just going to go and read some lines and well, just see.
Ha! Well, this is what happens y'all when you aren't paying attention. I was given the role of M'Lynn, the mother of Shelby. (The Sally Field character.)
So to my surprise one night while going over the script with the cast I discovered I had to portray this scene below. Oh yes.
My first reaction was. Oh no. Oh no no no no nooooooo. I can't do this. I CAN'T!!!!
The directors just looked at me like "oh yes you can."
Maybe I'm a Steel Magnolia after all.
