Mother's Day Weekend Miscellanea

With the hub gone, it's been a very quiet weekend.

Friday, we were bombarded with boxes of flowers coming from all around. My flowers of the month arrived, a beautiful bouquet of iris and red tulips. Such a pretty pairing.

Mom received two huge bouquets from her sons. The house is full of lovely blooms. She also received candies, cards and calls from all of her loved ones. Can you tell she was so happy? (I tell you, I sure am spying that Tiffany blue vase! hehe)

When the kid arrived home from school on Friday, we headed into Nashville to check out a new little cupcake shop, Gigi's. We have been munching on them ever since. They are luscious. Too luscious. No wonder I'm fat. I do love my cupcakes.

Yesterday, we went out to our local nursery and finally picked up some ferns for the top porch thinking it was all clear to put them out. This is my favorite place. Everything is home grown by mom and pop and baskets are a mere $6 each. Now, that's a bargain. And, we're keeping it local, baby. Yea.

Well, today we are having gale winds. No lie. Murphy's law, right? They are swinging about like the man on the flying trapeze. I've had to take several of them down before they went airborne! And it's 60 degrees out there. Burr doggy.

Ok, tomorrow I head to Hotlanta first thing in the morning after dropping the kid off at school. There's not stopping me this time. Haha. I am so looking forward to seeing Amy even though it will only be one night. We'll get in as much as we can, won't we Aim! Watch out Atlanta, here I come!
