mommy day

mother's day was nice.
quiet, for the most part, and lazy, for the most part.
john worked hard to get my garden ready for me (my only request for a gift).
it is ready for planting now and i can't wait.

the kiddos made me sweet little mementos at school and were very excited to give them to me.
they picked me out a cute pair of earrings and a bracelet and presented them to me with BIG smiles!
i slept in (with anna).
john made breakfast and cleaned up the kitchen.
we ate dinner with my parents and chilled.

the day before i went to tj maxx and found amy butler bedding there.
i bought some new sheets and pillow shams and a cute pair of new shoes.
so i guess those were part of my mother's day too.
happy mother's day, amy. well, don't mind if i do!

i also had a super exciting present in my mailbox!
matthew mead's summer magazine was waiting for me to dive right in.
which i did, tore it open right there on the porch.
did y'all see meg duerksen's spread??!?!!?!
you must. it's amazing. her photography was perfect.
loved it.

lots of wonderful things this weekend, all for me.
hope you had a wonderful weekend too.
happy monday, friends!
