Saturday I have a wedding shower to attend. It is for the fiancé of my friend's son. My friend recently moved away, and I am excited to see her again. After that, we are all able to attend Mass together in the late afternoon before Madison goes into work. I think the rest of us will go out for a quick bite of Chinese before a stop at Dairy Queen. My mother is away visiting my sister, but if she gets home, we will pick up a treat for her and take down along with her Mother's Day gifts as well. We got her a rosary made from the roses that adorned my father's casket just like the one Steve got me. : )
Sunday, I'm hoping to sleep in and then enjoy a special breakfast...maybe, oh...I don't know...two eggs over easy with whole wheat toast and coffee...just in case my hubby would by any chance reading this. ; ) Then we are off to Rhett's soccer game. The weather looks good for this week. Amen. After the game and when Madison gets off of work I think we will get a pizza and relax for the rest of the night. My favorite...nights with my family. : )
So that is what we will be doing this beautiful spring weekend. I hope yours is happy, and healthy, and full of family, food, and fun, whatever your plans may be. And to all the mothers and grandmothers and godmothers...Happy and Blessed Mother's Day to you.
"My mother wanted me to be her wings,
to fly as she never quite had the
courage to do.
I love her for that.
I love that she wanted to give birth
to her own wings."
American poet and writer
Have I mentioned that pink is Flynn's favorite color? As in...she may have a slight obsession with it? Now, we even bake in shades of pink.
And where might this little lady all decked in pink be heading? To see The Amazing Spiderman 2, of course. : )
My super soccer player and his awesome coach last Sunday...They were on their way to the very first game of the season. They won 4 to 0. : ) Notice the gray skies and rain falling...then add temperatures of 40 degrees with wind. The girls and I opted to stay home...
and work in this room.
We mopped, organized, and put away these things...
then set out these pretty little things...because when it is the first weekend in May, you know warmer weather has to arrive soon. : )
Arrive it did! This week has been beautiful...full of sun and warmth and signs of spring all around...
soon these trees will bloom beautiful shades of white and pink...thank Heavens...or a certain little lady would be very unhappy. : )
And speaking of a certain little lady...she's not looking so little anymore. She is so proud to hold Kirby's leash on our afternoon walks. : )
Teacher Appreciation Day this week brought this lovely surprise from my hubby and children. : )
And now, I'm off to enjoy this...a slice of cinnamon streusel coffee cake with chocolate chips. : )
