The BEST day!

Mother's Day is one of my most favorite days!  Our rule is I get to do whatever I want on Mother's Day and Andy gets to do what he wants on Father's Day.  Yep, it's a sweet set-up!  So after church we headed to Carraba's for lunch and then I decided I wanted a nap and then to go for a walk so we headed to the Cahaba.  Look at these precious babies!

HeeHee...we told the kids there were trolls under the foot-bridges so Abby decided to investigate....

After our stroll we went for sorbet at Doodles in Cahaba Heights.  You gotta see my gifts........look at all of these lovely flowers!



And a miniature Orchid
But the sugar on my smacks was what Andy brought me back from New Mexico.......

a cookbook from my favorite restaurant and key lime truffles from my favorite chocolate shop!
Sigh....I heart that man!

On the craft side of life.... I've been honing some sewing skills by making a play outfit for Abby (that's the back of the top)and a pair of (obnoxious)shorts for Ben.  Got LOTS more to work on though!

Did you tell her that Poppy always said he was a troll and lived under a bridge?

Thank you so much for your visit to my blog. I enjoyed reading about your Mother's Day! It sounds perfect! Of course, with flowers and chocolate and those sweet babies, how could it not be! I had an outfit very similar to what you are making -- my mom made mine. It was bright red with white polka dots and trimmed in rick-rack. It was so cute!
