I had been a little under the weather around here - summer colds really stink! Thankfully, no one else has really gotten this week+ long cold.....and I am almost 100% better!
It started Mother's Day (hooray), so I felt pretty crummy all day. But...it was a great excuse to have Brent wait on me hand and foot (like he would have done it anyway for my special day!)
Like any true adult, all I really wanted for Mother's Day were practical things - like plants, organization, and hugs, of course.
Friday, Emma's school was having a Mother's Day Tea Party.........so of course, we took some selfies to commemorate the occasion.
|"Mom, stop it! You're embarassing me!"|
We were also getting a little frazzled waiting for daddy to come home from work.......
Saturday, we went to Lowe's, and Emma had a blast. It's funny how certain places can entertain this girl way longer than any toy we've ever bought!
We got to work planting, with a little help from this diva..
|I have no idea where she gets this face from!|
|or this one......|
|almost done...my border plants|
One of my other presents for Mother's Day was a day trip (sans Emma) to Ikea. I had been wanting to go there for awhile, and we had picked out some things we were needing for the house. Despite feeling awful, we went anyway. When you get a chance to go, you gotta take it!
|Ikea selfie! Can you tell I am soooo stuffed up here? I even look puffy!|
|Some of our loot! I had been wanting a dresser for awhile. We have always had large, tall wardrobes in our bedroom and I really wanted something smaller...and more decoration friendly ( so I could pile more stuff on top and pretend it's decor)! I would love to have something antique and super-nice, but with the pets and Emma...I know it would get ruined right away. We actually scored big time on this dresser - it was a display without any defects that was marked down even more than the outrageously low price to begin with - AND WE DIDN'T HAVE TO PUT IT TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
|We couldn't go by Lexington, NC without a stop at my favorite BBQ!!! We even got some to take home! (Sorry the pic is bad...the other attempts are even worse... do you think my man needs a haircut or what?!)|

And of course, I can't leave out a picture of my mother for this post. I am so thankful for her friendship and blessed to see it continue to grow stronger as we get older. I love you, mom:)
