Yesterday morning I walked downstairs and found these roses waiting for me. Aren't they pretty? I love them. So does Beauty unfortunately, but I set out a bowl of food for her in hopes she'll nibble on that instead of play with the sticks and flowers. So far so good!

The house was quiet for much of yesterday. The family was at a swim meet. I was at home. I slept in a little, played with the animals, typed in my AAs (page proofs) for my November release A Little Bit of Holiday Magic and wrote a new chapter on my current book. A very nice day.

After the family arrived home, we went to Mass then out to dinner. Our dinner plans had to change because the first place, Joe's Crab Shak, had an hour and a half wait. The second place, McGrath's Fish House, a two hour wait. So we went to our old stand-by, Red Robin, and walked right in. Hubby promised me seafood this week so I get two dinners out! Not a bad compromise!

On the way home, I told hubby to stop at Dairy Queen. He looked at me strangely. I'm currently doing Whole 30 so I can't eat dessert. I told him I couldn't get dessert, but everyone else could. So we went through the drive-thru and I had three happy kidlets and a smiling hubby!

I also got presents in addition to the roses. Workout clothes, jammies and a red fleece blanket (I'm always cold because of the a/c.) A very good Mother's Day!

While we were waiting for our dessert, I was scrolling through Facebook and saw a clip I'd seen before. It just makes me smile, my family, too, so I thought that I'd share it with you! I love the smiles, the enthusiasm, the lack of embarrassment, everything about this. Enjoy!

Hope you have a great Monday!

It must be nice! I had to go out today and buy my own hanging basket for mother's day. To be honest though hubby was in the hospital Friday and Sat. Colonoscopy that went wrong, he started bleeding bad and I had to take him back to the ER a few hours after the procedure. He lost over two pints of blood so it was touch and go for a while. He is getting better now. It was a rough couple of days though.

I'm glad you had such a nice Mother's Day. And two dinners to boot. Score! :)

Re: Quilt Lady
That's scary to hear about your husband. I hopes everything turned out okay. I'd never heard of a colonoscopy going wrong. Something else to worry about.

Quilt Lady - I'm sorry to hear about your husband. I can only imagine how scary that must have been. Glad he's better. Hugs to you and prayers to both of you, too!
