Yesterday was gorgeous here in Nashville. I spied some tulips (albeit funky tulips) that had sprung up seemingly overnight.

Of course, I had to cut them and bring them into the house to enjoy.

Aren't they beautiful?

Miss Sherrie came over (my Godsend) and mom was just beaming from ear to ear. Sherrie had been on vacation for a week, and we all missed her very much. We sat in the sun and got our 20 minutes of vitamin D, all three of us! Squint!

I found this piece on my way home from Alabama last week for mom. It was absolutely the most perfect saying I had ever found. I love her so. She was the best mom ever raising me.

Well, I'm beginning to see a difference in my dieting. Let's hope I can keep it up! Geesh.

Photos for my own morale! (And yes, the guest room is my catch all after a trip! Like I've been home for a week!) Can you say L-A-Z-Y? Teheh, this is the room my brother Jim is ready to redecorate for me. Bring it on brutha!

It turned cooler today and is supposed to begin raining. I hope we get thunderstorms! The kid and I are just dying for a good one!

way to go girl! I need to get back on the wagon!
That little saying for your mom is precious! I wish I had found that when my mom could understand what it was all about....isn't it just amazing how our mothers shape us? Kinda makes me scared how my 15 year old will turn out! LOL!
Thanks for the mole info....we have some suspicious looking ones around here we have to get checked out!

Wow, the first thing I noticed as I scrolled down, was that you'd lost lots of weight. You look so pretty!

You are so lucky to have had such a wonderful mom, and she's equally as fortunate to have you.

Love those flowers. And congrats on losing weight. I have lost about 10 pounds but I have had to excercise my little heart out to do it.

Gosh're turning into a hottie! Good for you and I'm sure your new exercise will be the hub chasing you around the bedroom!
