mommy's day

this is late, but i've been just too pooped, and my fingers have been too swollen and too much pain to type.

well, i do hope that all the mommies out there who deserved to have a great day for them, did. i know i did!

it began with hubby dearest getting ladybug and i up at the almost the crack of dawn - 7:30 am - he let me sleep in! we went off to breakfast, then he took me to my all time favorite kitchen/cooking store - Sur Le Table - and let me pick out several things, but most important, he 'made' me get my beloved Le Creuset!!!! i have been a crazy fiend for these pots for at least 10 years! my granny had 3 that are at least 40 years old, i just don't know what's happened to them. so, i hemmed and hawed about whether or not to get those pots til dh walked up behind me and told the sales lady that i'll take the purple ones. he said that that's why he brought me in the first place, and that he would have just done it himself only he didn't anticipate there being two different purples (purple is my favorite color), both of which he thought i'd like (he was right). i melted right then and there!

then off we headed to the nursery to get the supplies we needed for the raised bed garden that dh built for me. i was showered with cards from my brother, mother, and father, and then dinner was made for me! all and all i had a great day! here are a few pics... please enjoy!

That was so sweet and i love the pots! But girl, what i'm really loving is those raised garden boxes! I've just started my very own vegetable garden and flower garden so now i just go goo-goo, ga-ga over garden stuff. I can't wait to see your garden grow! Thanks for sharing!

yes, dear hubby got those boxes up in a matter of a few hours! (i wish i could clone him! well, at least all his good attributes, lol!). all i want to do is go out there and 'fiddle', but as you know being a fellow 'lupie', the sun is not our friend. good luck with your garden my friend!
