Happy Mother’s Day to all of you lovely women out there!
I was just thinking how I have been blessed to have so many women in my life and all of them should be celebrated today. Cheers to you! <3
This has been an eventful weekend. Friday Ina and I ran to the nursery to buy some plants for the garden. We kept it pretty simple this year: kale, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, bell peppers, jalapeño peppers, and herbs (cilantro, sage, basil, thyme, mint, and oregano).
We planted half of it on Friday night and the other half Saturday morning. We are trying the cardboard/mulch method this year in an effort to have less weeds. It took a little more prep work, but I am hoping that work pays off in the long run. I will report back.
Yesterday afternoon we celebrated my niece Hallaway’s FOURTH birthday. I remember when she was born like it was yesterday. My sister and brother-in-law just moved into a beautiful house, so it was great to finally see it and everyone else in the family. Ina has been talking about going to the party for weeks now and she throughly enjoyed herself, nail polish and all.
After the birthday party we drove straight to Dan’s dad’s house for a shrimp boil.
This meal was next level delicious. Dan’s dad and step mom sure do know how to put out a great spread. Unpictured - homemade rolls with honey butter. After we ate all the shrimp we could handle and Ina ate 4 ears of corn we sat by the fire. It was just great.
Today we are going to church, to lunch somewhere, and then having a Mother’s Day ice cream party at our house.
I hope you have a blessed Sunday!
