Friday Favorites...Happy Mother's Day!

We are on the downhill swing now with only nine school days (after today) left until summer. I don't think my mind has yet fully grasped the fact that Devin will be starting high school in August. HIGH SCHOOL. And Dracen will begin his last two years of elementary school. I've never been more thankful that our middle school here is only two grades, 7th and 8th, because let me tell you, it has been a doozie. He told me this morning that several kids got sent home early yesterday for making themselves pass out. How insane is that? 

In other news, spring finally decided to show up here over the past two days. It has been absolutely beautiful though showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast for tomorrow and we are supposed to head to Jamestown for the annual North Carolina Wiener Roast put on by the Dachshund rescue groups. This will be our fourth straight year attending and I think I'm going to give Charlene her shot at the races this year since Brisco (the bolter) has refused to race both times I've entered him.

Should be interesting.

Dracen says he's going to sneak behind my back in order to win and buy me a Dachshund gift for Mother's Day in the silent auction. That child can be so thoughtful when he wants to be. He took it upon himself to cook us dinner Monday night. (spaghetti and salad) and folded his arms across his chest, huffed and puffed, and threatened to throw the towel in if I didn't stop trying to help him although I was only trying to guide him in order to prevent him from burning the house down. I have to say, I was impressed. Although he didn't seem to mind me "helping" with the cleanup afterwards since he was nowhere to be found during that process. 

And since it is Mother's Day weekend I chose this adorable photo for my first favorite this week...

Staying close to mom
How much cuter can cute get?

Bike ride!
Now I don't care who you are,
this right here is just plain funny.

Powerful thought
This really hit home with me.

I like you
Made me chuckle and also reminded me
of that line from Django I shared with
y'all a couple of weeks ago, which has also
become my favorite way to address Li'l Bit...
"Hey, little troublemaker."


I'd wear it
So I don't normally wear writing on my
shirts but I think I could consider making
an exception for this (name that movie).

DIY Inspiration
This was an old dresser turned wine cabinet.
I think I could do it.

I'd love to get my coffee on in one of these.
Would make a great Mother's Day gift too.

My Mom and Me

"Fore She Was Mama"
This song cracks me up.
And here's to hoping my boys never
find my box. (just joking, there's no box)
You believe me, don't you?

Happy Mother's Day Weekend!

  2. If your experience is anything like ours has been, HS will be a tremendous relief compared to MS.

    That is, of course, once you get past the shock of "OMG, I've got a kid in high school !" ;)
