Mother's Day Weekend

Good day, blog friends.
If you live on a piece of the planet where Mother's Day was celebrated this past weekend, I hope you had a good one. And if you didn't celebrate Mother's Day, I hope there were other things that made you happy.


I loved Mother's Day this year! Carrie gave me the gift of her time, and that's always a favorite for me! We spent time together Saturday night, and then again yesterday for lunch and shopping.

My own sweet mom was on my mind a lot ~ I kept a candle burning for her, and my thoughts were of gratitude for the amazing example she set for my siblings and me.

And other than celebrating motherhood, there was a lot of this going on:


Our nephew, Cris, is graduating from ASU this week and the party is at our house! {yay!!!} I spent some time in my craft space on Saturday creating a banner and working on cupcake toppers. And of course, a party in these parts always includes cupcakes, so I geared up with baking supplies...



And since the party is at our house, there was some backyard preparation going on too. I repotted some flowers and spruced up a few existing plants and took a whole bunch of photos of flowers {totally un-party-related, but took them just the same...}.



Even though it's Monday morning there's a feeling of happy anticipation for this week! It's a short work week for us as we are taking Thursday and Friday off to celebrate with family in town.

I hope each of you have something to look forward to this week!
I'm off to make mine happen...

It sounds like you had a super weekend with Carrie. We did a lot of work in the gardens and garage this weekend as we finally got some nice weather.

Sounds fun! I to enjoy time with my daughter but she and my Grand-daughter are at Disney World for the week. I so wish I could be there with them. However,I did get to enjoy some time with my son and Grandson on Mothers Day.

Sounds like a lovely time Deb! Of course, if Carrie had anything to do with it, it would be a lovely time :-)
Garden's looking fab - so fresh and green and the flowers are beautiful.

I'm a tiny, wee bit jealous of your wonderful collection of punches... Looks like you were well equipped to make that banner!

Have a great week and enjoy the celebrations!

Lovely photos and plans to celebrate with family! Nothing is ever better than spending time with our babies...even if they're all grown up and no longer babies! Hope you have a great week and enjoy time with your family. Congrats to the graduate!
