Oops! So I missed yesterday,
but honestly there wasn't much to miss.
It was cloudy and overcast ALL day!
Well this morning the sun is shining and we're getting ready for an afternoon on the boat!
First though, it's time for some breakfast on the deck!
Happy Weekend friends!

Seems so trivial now, but at the time I was one step away from going Bridezilla on my florist
The day before our wedding my mom and I went to the flower shop to finalize the centerpieces. When we got there the florist said some of my bouquet flowers had arrived and very excitedly brought out a Gardenia.
Definitely NOT for my bouquet.
In fact no where in any of our wedding flowers did we have gardenia.
When I questioned her she brought out the order form and said, no look, it says "Gardenia" right here.
We got married.
Life went one.
My mom and I often joked about it every time we saw a Gardenia.
"Hey look mom, it's "grandma's rosary"
Fast forward almost 2 years.
One of my good friends sent me a plant after my mom died.
She didn't know this story or the little inside joke we had about this simple little flower, so when I opened it up I smiled at the irony of it.
Well the smile stopped there.
I've watered this plant.
Watched it bud time and time again only to have them drop before a single flower opened.
I thought maybe it was just dormant for the winter.
Or it wasn't getting enough sunlight.
I googled and found out they're very temperamental.
Great. I have the woman of the plant world.
So I went out and bought the special fertilizer it likes.
Moved it to a sunnier spot in the house.
Tried not to let the dogs tail smack it every.single.time we went outside.
Moved it outdoors now that the weather is nicer cause Mr. Google told me it likes humidity.
I basically became BFF's with a plant.
And I waited.
It only took 7 months.
But I actually got my grandmother's rosary to bloom!
And people say I don't have a green thumb!

Hello all!! Time for another edition of things that we like at our house.
Things no one paid me to talk about.
|It also come with a pretty serious harnass,|
but I took it out to run through the wash
and it never made it back on.
So there you have it. Another round of reviews! What are some of your faves, I always love getting real mom advice!

At least once week, often times more than that.....I see something that quite frankly makes me stop dead in my tracks and say:
Really? If the only thing holding up that building is that makeshift scaffolding, I think I'll take my chances and park on the street.

We spent our Saturday Morning at one of my favorite places...
the grocery store!
Of course my favorite helper tagged along.
Boy loves riding in the cart!
And yes our shopping carts have cup holders.
I mean, where else is mommy supposed to put her starbucks!

I was flipping through my phone last night and found a few funnies I thought I'd share!
|What? Doesn't every parent let their child nap on a pallet of wine?|
|Yep. My son frequently flips me the bird.|
|Apparently our son drinks coffee now cause this is how I found Jamie's sippy after daddy washed all the bottles|
That's all I got peeps! Happy Friday!

So mom thinks the reason you all come back and read her silly antics time and time again are due to her fantastic writing skills and witty humor.....
But let's be honest,
we all know who the REAL star of this blog is.
We're off to the lake for the weekend to help Grandpa blow out his Birthday candles!
