Memorial Day Weekend

June 6, 2012 by gwendolyn

Here I am, behind the curve, again! It’s okay tho, right? I have so much I want to post, it’s kind of frustrating that I don’t have the time anymore. The silver lining is all the good stuff that life brings to keep us happy with the things we do have time for.

So, here it is. We were incredibly busy this weekend –  Each day we had an outing, which was very good for Momma. She likes to get out and see friends, since she is a social butterfly and all…

Plus, L.L. did so well with all of it and I am getting the hang of feeding her while we are out. At least that is what I like to tell myself. I will consider myself 100% successful when I don’t have to go to another room and hide.

I have lots of pictures to share, so I will do that now and explain with captions. Keep this one short and maybe I can get a few written sooner! Enjoy.

Great Friends!

Leftovers – didn’t anyone tell you not to play with your food?

Love from L.L.

Even the boys can’t resist.


In her holiday getup with Daddy!

We are pretty sure she already loves the beach!

Happy Girl!

My First Mother's Day

May 21, 2012 by gwendolyn | Comments Off on My First Mother's Day

Ok, ok, I’m a week late. What can I say? It’s hard to keep up these days. Really, I have no idea how people do it…exercise, work, take care of baby, clean house, shower, do anything personal…I’d love to know the secret!

I digress, onto Mother’s Day!

It was a pretty low key day, which was fine for a tired Momma. First, I received flowers from my delightful daughter (with a little help from Daddy with that one). Such beautiful flowers that came with the sweetest card I could have imagined. It stated, I was the best Mom and L.L. loved me with all her heart. Could you just die of the sweetness? Of course, Dad said he is going to have to have a talk with her about using his credit card. (I thought that one was pretty funny, and hope you do, too.) 

Then, we went on a family outing to Heavenly Desserts, oh joy! You all know how I feel about desserts, so this was just what the doctor ordered (not really, but if I were a doctor it would be on the order list!). The hubs and I shared selections of a peanut butter square and a chocolate cake with Bailey’s Irish Cream filling. If that wasn’t enough, we washed it down with some outstanding tea. I just love a blood red tea, don’t you?

From the hubs – I love, love, love it!

Next on the list is a card from my loving husband. He has a knack for finding some amazing cards, that I always save, and love displaying in the house. Not only did I get one from him, but also some friends & cousins. Such wonderful surprises and I will be sad when the time comes to take them off the fridge. I must say though, not all of them in the picture are for Mother’s Day, some are congratulations on the baby, but who cares! A card deserves to be displayed (as long as my husband will stand for it). This is where a little smily face should go, but I am trying really hard to abstain from using them in this blog.


And that’s that! It was a nice day and an even better weekend. We all had a good time, I even like to think that Domingo enjoyed it, too!
