Still kicking

I have not posted in a bit and I know I promised a Mother's Day post. I just have not had time to sit down and write lengthy posts. I am so sorry.

Mother's Day was actually pretty great.

We had reservations at this amazing little bistro on the outskirts of town. The food was....DIVINE. That's the only word I have for it. Jennifer had some absolutely delicious oatmeal crusted french toast that just melted in your mouth. Lorelli had these awesome pancakes (that she shared with me) that had this delicious little citrus butter and strawberries on top. I have never had citrus butter, but MAN it was GOOOD! My breakfast was a simple eggs and bacon with roasted potatoes (which I shared with Lorelli). My eggs were so good that I did not even salt or pepper them. I just ate them. They had been cooked in that same citrus butter that was on Lorelli's pancakes. Jennifer and I both had mimosas. Our breakfast came with a basket of pastries and a choice of a fruit cup or a parfait. I can not even tell you how good it all was. Seriously, it was completely drool worthy.

We left breakfast satiated and ready to take on the beauty of the day. We went to Home Depot and Lowe's and bought a bunch of stuff to get our garden going. Flowers, dirt, mulch, rocks, ground cover plants, hanging pots, a bird feeder. TONS. OF. STUFF

We spent the afternoon, Lorelli included, digging up and weeding and willing the two GOOD SIZED flower beds in the back yard. In these we planted phlox and poppies which are BEAUTIFUL!!! Our phlox is not doing so well now, but after we planted it, it went three days because someone (me) forgot to water it. OOPS!!! I am hoping that it perks up, but if it doesn't, I am taking it back to Home Depot and getting my money back. (Did you know you can do that?)

We got to take a nap while Lorelli played and hung out with Grandma.

We worked in the front garden beds, clearing them of the debris from the fall decorations. Then we weeded and planted in them and covered them back with little white marble chips.

We got a little bit of sunburn. But mostly...we just enjoyed the day together. The sun was shining. The birds were singing. And we didn't have to do anything except BE.
