How is it the middle of May? Well, after covering my flowers almost the entire week due to frost every night, I think we’re finally in the clear! Time to wash, dry and fold the two dozen sheets and put them away for the season, hopefully! Let's get to it...warmer weekend I'm ready for ya!!

1. Mother's Day Gift

Oh, sweet friends, you talk about a precious Mother’s Day gift! My kids got me this Box. In the top portion, is a real pink rose preserved and when you pull the drawer out inside is a very special necklace. If you hold it up and look through the round gem in the middle of the heart, you will see that in a circular pattern it says I love you in 100 different languages! Isn’t that so incredibly cool! You can get the rose in several colors and there are some different designs of the necklace. I have never seen anything like this before and it is just the sweetest thing!

The circle on the left is what you see when you look through it and the 100 languages saying "I love you!"

2. Marigold Bars/Coffee

Let me shout it from the mountain tops…”I LOVE Marigold!!!”

4. Walking Shoe Poll

Last week on Instagram I asked you all the best sneakers for walking at least 5 miles every day. ASICS was the most popular at about 60%. So that’s what I went with, and I walked in them now four days, 6+ miles each day and so far, so good! These are actually cuter than I thought they would be, and they even come in pink!


5. Misc. Fun
POST of the Week 


Ok, I pretty much feel like I’m going to show you some sort of nature or foliage at my house every Friday through the spring and summer months. This week my mom was visiting, and we noticed that some of our back hostas had started to thrive and had the perfect green variegation. So, I snapped a picture as they are so pretty.


Remember Last Week when I showed you the hungry little baby robins? What a difference a week makes. Look how big they are. See the little beaks and eyes? They were peering right at me and mama Robin was squawking so I got away quick.


AND this for Thought & Motivation

Have a great weekend my Lovelies!!

  10. I love that necklace from your boys! I actually did fall one day this week and landed hard on the basement floor... later that afternoon I was going to eat lunch and I remarked that my leg was sore and sure enough I had a bruise. I mused aloud "I wonder where I got that" and my boys looked at me like I was nuts and reminded me I had just fallen earlier that day.... Yep, they were right and I'm sure that's where it came from but it didn't even register with me since it seems to happen often.

  11. I can't believe you could see in the Robin's nest so well. We had one in our tree, and I could just see the heads popping up when it was feeding time. SO cute,

  12. I love all the variations of hostas! We had easily over 40 at our old house and 0 here when we moved. I'm working on it each year! Haha! They are so easy to care for!
