Mother’s Day Recap & Great Fall Park : Round 2

So yesterday was a fabulous Mother’s Day. As I posted yesterday, I got a beautiful card from Jackson. He and Boyf are so sweet. mas pics 504

We started off the morning with pictures in the backyard. Here is my mom and I, and then Boyf and I. Obviously, Jackson and I are a package deal so he is in the picture too!mas pics 439mas pics 435-1

For brunch, we went to Vinifera, which is a wine bar and bistro by my house. We started off our meal there with a mango juice and a mimosa. Yum!

I had the lobster frittata and it was TO DIE FOR. So good, seriously. There was some serious YUM going on on my plate. I enjoyed the decorations on the plate too. The petals (yes petals) on my plate we edible. I ate it ALL. mas pics 445 Post brunch, we headed back to Great Falls (again) . To enter the park you pay $5.00, and the pass they give you is good for 3 days. So my parents were talking about how they wanted to see the falls since it rained so much this week, and we went over there to check it out. Clearly, Jackson came again too. mas pics 447    The Falls had less water this time! So nuts how in less than 24 hours there was a noticeable difference in the water going through. mas pics 429mas pics 417mas pics 430 mas pics 431  

Here is Jackson and I posing for yet another picture. It shows how far the water has come up from the River in the past years. mas pics 418 mas pics 419

These are the flowers I got for my mom. I just LOVE the color! So fresh. I also got her this purple pearl necklace and earring set she had been eyeing up. She very much enjoyed it. :)mas pics 503

Library Card

I have been telling myself for weeks I was going to go to the library and get a card. I have been spending so much money buying books these days, I really needed to cut back. So I went today and got a card. I had one in high school, but I haven’t been to a library since. mas pics 450 

I am so excited now. I have such a huge list of books I want to read on goodreads so it will be awesome to be using the library system again. I feel so thrifty! This is definitely going to count towards my TSL point tally on Bobbi’s site! Check out my keychain with my new library card on it. I have a lot going on on my key ring!

Also, please embrace my stack of books. I really have no business getting a library card right now and bringing new books into my world. My ‘to-read’ stack is piled high! Does anyone else out there buy all these books and then not have time to read them all and wind up with a huge stack? The pile is always high! I’ve got lots of reading to do!

Also,  a SHOUT OUT OF LOVE to Boyf is in order. He fixed my Windows Live Writer which has been the bane of my existence for some time now. I am not sure what he did, or how he did it. All I know is that he fixed it, its working now and I am so happy. It’s so much easier to blog with it. If you aren’t using it, download Windows Live Writer right now. Stop reading and go download! Go!

Thanks again Boyf. You’re the best. Xo.
