    Easter In The Country

    We have had such a fun day!  Here’s how we celebrate Easter in the country… Hey, I am no decorator, but this is my attempt to put together a quick centerpiece.  My mom gave me those little egg candles-they are so cute!

It is prom season.  And if working from 7:00a.m.-5:00p.m. in our family business isn’t enough, I also have the only tuxedo rental business in our area. So during the day it’s all about auto parts, and during prom season, the evenings are all about formal wear.  Ha!  What a funny combination. Prom is this weekend, so…
