Pink Saturday

Hello pinkie friends and welcome to my Pink Saturday post. As always, we want to thank our lovely hostess Beverly for hosting this fun event every week.

This has been an incredibly busy week getting ready for my company. Nothing like company coming to get the house cleaned up and the junk cleared out. Hubby has been teasing me all week about the number of boxes I had saved 'just in case I need them.'
Today I would like to share something a little different. It is all pink and it's all leading up to an exciting announcement..... Talk about Christmas in July!

One can't have a party without pink balloons, can one?

Pink roses, is there any other colour that bespeaks romance and femininity as well?
OK, slip on your best pink bracelet.Pink diamonds are precious but there are some things in this world more precious than diamonds!

There are some gifts so sweet they don't require a bow!
Isn't this pink baby bonnet just darling? Pink, ribbon, and lace, how sweet is that?
This frothy and sequined little pink baby's dress is adorable, isn't it?
Love these little pink lacey-frilled socks! I've always wanted to buy one of these headbands!Well, after having three precious baby boys myself, who I wouldn't trade for anything in the world by the way, and then being blessed with four sweet little grandsons, I had pretty much given up on ever having a granddaughter.... Then lo and behold, this past week, my middle son and his wife, who flew in at 1:30 AM this morning, with my little not quite two year old grandson, had it confirmed that their baby on the way is indeed a girl! I am so excited! After almost thirty-six years of buying blue, I get to buy pink!!

I am going to get a little pink princess for Christmas! What wonderful news, and all in time for Christmas in July!

I am going to have some pink lemonade and celebrate!

Would you like to join me?

Here's to GIRL POWER or should I say PINK POWER!

Happy Pink Saturday everyone! Be sure to visit all the pinkies lined up at Beverly's!
I wish you all a very pink weekend.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

  6. Sandi -how wonderful for you to be able to indulge your love of pink with a little baby girl!! I have a granddaughter (born in April) and it is so much fun - I also have a little grandson and he's pretty cool too!!

  7. Hi: I am so happy for you. A grandbaby! Think of all the pink! What a blessing! Have a great weekend.

  8. Sandi, this is thrilling news. With two daughters and four granddaughters (only two grandsons) myself, I know how much you are going to enjoy your new little princess.
    Just think, you'll have a little lady to share all your tea things with and tea parties to throw!
    Enjoy the visit with your family.

  9. Congratulations Sandi Sweetie...
    Happy Pink Saturday and you are going to get a little precious pink bundle for Christmas. Can't you just smell that baby smell already?

    We have 8 gandchildren. 4 - boys and 4 - girls. Half and half. Our newest grandchild was born June 10, a beautiful little boy named James. If we could only have the grandkids first, we wouldn't have our own. Aren't they a bundle of fun?

    Thank you for my balloon. I love my bracelet, it is just precious, and darlin I love the pink lemonade. It has been so HOT here in Phoenix, I think I will drink another glass for the road.

    Please stop by and let me share my pink post with you.

    Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

  18. Sandi,
    CONGRATS to you on a new Grandbaby girl coming your way!!
    I too have sons and there seems to be no chance of any Grands in the near future so someday I hope to have a baby girl in the family too!!
