Good Monday morning <3 Hoping everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July…The Artist and me had a wonderful weekend…Road Trip out to our fav places from back in the day 😉
Then on Sunday the 4th was a chill kind of day w/the Artist painting and me planning…Love, love, love to plan. Today will just be a reset kind of day where we keep wondering what day it is 😉 Does that happen to anyone else on these 3 day weekends ???
The other painting he just started yesterday, but I’m thinking it’s going to be a fav of mine !!! Don’t forget you can visit our Handmade by Amazon site and purchase any of his amazing artwork…Just follow the link <3
The weekend started out really great with me and the granddaughter getting our hair done, Chic Filet for lunch and then of course Starbucks to top off the fun day…
So much fun at the salon…Shout out to our forever beauty stylist…Mz. Lisa <3 Thank you so much for making us beautiful again <3 . Oh and I can’t forget the flower’s my wonderful husband bought for me <3 .
Back to business this week, a lot of irons in the fire. Starting a major remodel on the home but then by the end of this year it will all be done. I will update with pics of our beautius home. Let’s enjoy the rest of the summer. Busy, busy month w/birthday’s, anniversary (42nd <3 ) and vacation to New Smyrna Beach, Florida Y A Y !!!! Blessings Blogger’s on your Monday <3 … 😉
It was the best Mother’s Day ever !!! I’m not blogging til this morning b/c just been so busy. A really great kind of busy. Yes it was Mother’s Day weekend and I wasn’t sure how it was going to go as my kiddos are all over the the place i.e. East Coast, Midwest yadayadayada. Also the daughter is a nurse so I kind of figured she would probably have to work. So I told the husband let’s celebrate it on Saturday and all I really wanted was to go out south (where we use to live, south side of Chicago and visit our old stomping grounds). We could pick up some Aurelios Pizza (the Original one that started it all) and Krispy Kreme’s, probably the only one that’s left out here.
I just really need to put this Garth Brooks in here. I absolutely love it ♥️. It’s just the best song ever about mom’s ♥️ .
So out south we went and the weather was really crappy. Cold & windy, rainy and cloudy but I didn’t care. It’s all about the food. So off we went and I got a yummy Aurelio’s Pizza and 2 dozen Krispy Kreme’s. Needless to say they were gone by the time we got home. Well not the 2 dozen doughnuts, but the pizza was 😉 and the husband had a meatball sandwich. Those are just the empty boxes 😉😋
Then on Sunday Mother’s Day I was just going to chill and play with my planner stuff when the doorbell rings and it’s our Matthew, yes our #3 son all the way from Virginia. I was beyond happy as I haven’t seen him in a long time b/c of this whole pandemic thing, blah, blah, blah. He drove all the way here from Richmond, Virginia to just spend the day w/his mom. What a great son 🌹🌹
That was just the best surprise ever and I gave him a big hug and kiss and nothing ever felt so good as seeing and holding my son…What a great Mother’s Day ♥️. Thank you so much Matthew for choosing me as your mom ♥️ .
Matthew was able to hang around on Monday b/c he really wanted to see the sister too and all of his nieces and catch up with Cordell. So me and Matthew ran out to our favorite Sub place and picked up a bunch of subs and we all spent the afternoon together just having a ball. The grand babies just love my bed and so they were busy in grandmama’s room messing the whole thing up. Love all the giggles 🥰🥰
Just for a reference point with my beauties bed…This is how it looked before grandbabies got to it . The little one Mariah just loves, loves loves snuggling in it ♥️♥️
After the afternoon pizza party with everyone, Matthew had to hit the road. He left around 5:30pm back to Virginia which made me worry b/c I don’t like the whole driving thing cross country at night. He hugged me and told me everything would be fine and he’d stop for the night when he got tired and finish his journey home today. I got a text from him about 12:30 am telling me he was in Pittsburg and would be stopping for the night. I slept better knowing he was off the road ♥️♥️ It’s a mom thing.
After he left me and my girl’s went shopping to get a vase for the beautiful flowers b/c I’ve been spring cleaning and must have stored all my vases somewhere but we found a very pretty one and as per usual me and the daughter share a brain and we picked out the same vase 🥰 Then a quick trip to Starbucks for the girls and I dropped them home. She also brought me my absolutely favorite gift of all a new cup…I always need a new cup and this was just beautius. Loving the Hand Sanitizer from the Nurse 🤗🤗
Arrived back home last night around 8pm and our home was filled with flower’s, Happy Mother’s Day cards, and most importantly so much family love ♥️. Pretty sure Matthew will make it home safely and all is so right in my Mom world ♥️. Thank you so much kiddos for choosing me as your Mom. It is such an honor and I love you all ♥️♥️ …
