Happy Mother’s Day!

I didn’t make it “home” to see my mom and big sister this weekend like originally planned, but I keep telling myself it’s okay because we’re all going on a little weekend getaway next weekend! Super excited.

Today turned out to be pretty spectacular. It’s not even 5 pm as I write this, but I’m still pretty comfortable saying that. This morning, The Fiance went to town for some fencing for our vegetable garden (so that it remains, you know, a vegetable garden as opposed to a massive play area for the dogs – they. love. to. dig.) and came home with surprises! For me! For Mother’s Day! 🙂 I may or may not have been hinting for a couple weeks about it, but regardless – he went above and beyond what I expected!

I’ve been talking about getting some pretty hanging flowers for our front porch, so he came home with three of these gorgeous things:

They’re fuchsias, and in full bloom will look like this:

So. pretty! We’ll probably be adding to the collection, and getting some that have white on the inside, instead of the purple. Oh, I just love them!

He also brought home two cards for me – one “from” the baby, and one, of course, from him. The one from the baby is too cute!

I hope you all had a great Mother’s Day – whether it was spent with your mom, your significant other’s mom, with your own babies or puppies or kitties or other monsters, or even if it was just a fantastic Sunday, regardless of the holiday.

  1. I love fuchsias, they’re so pretty. I got stuck working at the garden center part of my retail job one summer in high school/college even though I knew nothing about plants…. those were always one of my favorites.

    Also: that from-baby card is just too cute.

  6. Kaci & Cody were married Saturday, Feb. 19, 2011 at The Piazza in the Village in Colleyville. The Piazza is a bieftauully designed wedding venue with classic architecture, a beautiful chapel with rich woods and an additional ballroom for receptions. Kaci and Cody were married at the Chapel at The Piazza in the Village and had their reception at the nearby Colleyville Center. Kaci chose to do a variety of purples, white and black as her wedding colors. With the help of Kristin at Shenanigans Weddings & Events, Kaci & Cody had a beautiful and memorable wedding celebration. I hope you enjoy Part 1 of their wedding photographs which features some of their wedding details, getting ready images and some portraits.a0
