Hello yall! Happy Monday to you. Hope everyone had a nice weekend and if you're in Texas- a safe one. We've had some serious crazy weather here in DFW area with flash floods, tornados, winds and rain. Yesterday morning the tornado sirens woke us up blaring into our bedroom. We don't live far from the fire station and our window faces the street. Not the best way to start your day for sure. Our neighborhood was Ok thank goodness!
Since Mom lives so far away and I'm not a mom myself, Mother's Day was always just another day. After church, Todd and I had a fun day running errands and grabbing quick lunch. We ate Canes chicken because it was buy one get one free for the occasion. Later in the afternoon I received a sweet text from my stepdaughter Alison that made my day.
I invited my stepmom Deb to dinner and told her to pick where and when to meet. We enjoyed a yummy dinner ( Mexican food) and I bought her 2 bouquets of flowers from the grocery store close by. They were gorgeous roses and tulips. Daddy was feeling good and it was so great to spend some time with them.
When we got home, I had a card on my pillow from Jax and Lila. Todd said they saved their money and pitched in to buy me a card but he had to cover the difference. lol!! They are too sweet and I love being a mom to furry babies.
Just before we went to bed, my stepson Collin sent Todd a text that said : Tell Holli happy Mother's Day from us. This is the first time he has ever acknowledged me for Mother's Day and it means so much.
I saved the texts by taking pictures of them.
So overall my day was a good one and I'm very blessed.
Last week we had a few days of sunshine and I was sent an idea from my sister in law using vintage cars. I was inspired and went to Home Depot to buy some soil and some succulents. I'm very pleased on how they turned out. Now I'm just concerned they don't blow away or get flooded in my backyard.
So did you have a good weekend?
