Flower beds & yard sales

Last week was the Sardinia wide yard sale.  Yes, we ended our vacation a day short so I could get back and get ready.  We put all our junk, err extra stuff we don't need out and still banked a couple hundred dollars!

I used the money to buy new patio furniture for our front deck and plant flower beds in front of our house. I fully intended on taking a picture so I could show everyone, but it's been raining forever sooo.   Pictures to come soon:)

Have a fantastic Tuesday everyone!!!

Mother's Day & Shania Twain

It's something that I said in passing.

Something that I wanted.

For Mother's Day, Robby got me one of the most thoughtful gifts to date.  Why?  Because generally, he gets me anything(within obvious reason) that I want throughout the year and therefore when gift giving seasons roll around... there's really not too much that I want so I always have to tell him exactly what I want.  Which store.  Which brand.  Sometimes even the bar code.

When I was younger, I wanted the Shania Twain Greatest Hits album.  Yes, I realize to some of you, that may seem like the worlds biggest oxy moron.  My mother wouldn't get it for me because she said that she was a bad role model for me.  To this day, I still have no idea what her personal life consists of, but I'm sure my mom was probably right.  But how many celebrities are really great role models?  I can't think of many.

I told Robby this story a month or so ago.  How I wanted it so much, but never got it.  Mother's day came.  I had the sweetest note on my bedside table telling me what a good mom I was to Will.  (Sometimes I feel like I don't have the patience to deal with the terrible two's that we're currently going through, so it's always welcomed to hear that I'm not a sucky mom:).  The note ended with telling me to open my iphone and go into my playlists.  I got Shania Twain's greatest hits album!!!!!!

I! was! so! excited!

So, I started my mother's day off right with having a dance party with the coolest 20 month old you'll ever meet and my pride and joy.

Best Mother's day to date.

Rainy days & the Zoo

April showers bring May... showers?

Confession time:  I actually love rainy days.

Totally dig them.

However, Will and I got a zoo pass that I've only been able to use once because it's rained sooo much.  So, yes... while I LOVE rainy days, I am ready for a small break.  I need some sunshine and some warm weather.

Come on Mother Nature... Bring it on!!!!
