Happy Mother’s Day, moms!
My pug child gave me a beautiful plant for Mother’s Day. Isn’t Murphy so sweet? Apparently, he texted my mom the other day to ask her if she would buy him a plant for me for Mother’s Day. Pugs are so thoughtful.
After breakfast this morning, I drove out to my mom’s house to celebrate Mother’s Day with her, my sister, and my grandmother. My sister and I bought my mom a new patio set for her backyard, so we were really excited to give it to her.
Hooray for a new patio set!
How many sisters does it take to put together a patio set?
It actually wasn’t difficult to put together at all.
The instructions were easy to understand, so we had my mom’s new table and chairs all set up in no time.
While we worked, Murphy supervised.
For lunch, my sister cooked turkey burgers and sweet potato wedges while I prepared a salad with greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, and sliced almonds.
Murphy chilled under the table while we ate lunch.
Once we finished eating, he got, um, comfortable in my lap. (Why is he sitting like that?!? What a weirdo!)
The card that I gave my mom for Mother’s Day this year reminded me a lot of growing up and hearing her say the old: “If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you?” She actually said this quite a lot to me, but I’m glad I listened because it made a real difference in how I viewed peer pressure and made my own decisions.
Inside the card:
Thanks for the words of wisdom, Mom! See, I listened to you back then!
