A Fun Filled Weekend…

Posted on: May 11, 2014

I had a very busy fun filled weekend, which began on Friday Night with a going away party

for a friend, as she starts a new chapter in her life…

This was the only picture I got of myself that night, in the teal poncho….

The next day (Saturday)  we went to an Art & Wine Festival.   This  was us after taking a break to eat lunch at Keegan’s Irish Pub. Where we dreamed of our October trip to Ireland!!!!!!

These two pics are from my husband’s cell phone….


This is a better view of what I wore to the Art & Wine Festival.

This is the last picture that will ever be taken with my Canon camera, as I was passing it to my husband to take the next pose and we dropped it on the cement and broke it…. (sooooo saaaaadddd, but refuse to let it mess up my weekend) 

And last of all is my Mother’s Day Outfit

Taken with  my son’s camera….


I loved swishing around in my newest boho skirt…

I bought this to replace a similar one that was too big after my weight loss…


We bought this necklace at the Art and Wine Festival.

It is a steampunk style with all the watch gear peices, but this one had such pretty filagree that  added a feminine touch that  really appealed to me…


I love this open weave shrug and have it in pink and yellow as well..

I also loved wearing my purple watch my husband bought me last month.

Dear Readers, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!  I did my best to keep busy and it worked out very well to distract me from missing my mother.  I haven’t been able to shake this sadness as the 5 year anniversary of her passing came in March… Keeping busy this weekend really helped me and I so appreciate the friends, my husband and dear children who all made it possible!  


I am so grateful for my friends and family!

I am grateful to my dear brothers, who both called to wish me a Happy Mother’s Day!

I am grateful to my children for not just one day, but all the days they fill my heart with joy and my home with laughter!

I am grateful that while we spent a lot of time with friends, that Saturday was just for my husband and I!

I am grateful for the fun music at the Art & Wine Festival and my dear husband for dancing with me!  ( I swore I’d only marry a guy who would dance whenever I wanted him to and after 23 years, he has honored me tremendously in indulging me)  

I am grateful to God for blessing me with the most amazing Mother!

I am grateful to my mother for teaching me the meaning of love, by listening to me in my early twenties when I told her what I needed to feel loved and her answer of , “Oh that’s what YOU need to feel loved!”  and providing it to me for the two decades of our lives together!

I love that you wore green to the Irish pub and dreamed of your vacation! I hope you shake your sadness soon. Keeping busy really can help.

Thanks you, Cynthia… I work hard to not let the sadness overwhelm me, but Mother’s Day was too much…
The funny part is that we didn’t have plans to eat at an Irish pub, a spot of rain interrupted the Art & Wine Festival and we were downtown, surrounded by great restaurants… It worked out well though!!!

The green outfit is so pretty and fresh. Love your new steampunk necklace.
