Graduation, my Mother's Day gift, & other ramblings...

It was a long, busy weekend.

There were so many invitations & occasions I wanted to attend,
but there just wasn't enough of me to go around. ;)

I did manage to make it to my friend, Megan's baby shower Saturday.
She's expecting a little girl she & her husband
 have named Zoey Lynn in July.
Maybe she'll be born on or close to Jubal's birthday, July 12th.

After the shower, Larson & I took my mama shopping for a new
outfit to wear to my niece, Lyndsay's graduation Sunday evening.
I ended up picking out two blouses she liked, so she left
the store with two outfits, a new pair of shoes, and
accessories to go with both outfits.

We decided to try a new restaurant
that they've been advertising for months,
It was supposed to be all this & all that...
Let me vent.
They DO NOT accommodate handicapped individuals,
nor do they accommodate babies/toddlers.
I didn't want to stay, but my mama was so tired from the walk
(she walks with a walker) into the restaurant,
that she didn't feel like walking all the way back out again
 when we found out they didn't have a highchair for Jubal.
I ended up just munching on Larson's salad that came
with his meal, because I wasn't spending any
more money in a restaurant that didn't seem to
 care about my mother or my child.
Just for Larson & Mama to eat ended up costing almost $50.
It was awful!!! 

On to other, happier things.

Sunday, Larson & I busted our butts trying to get a month's
worth of yardwork done before Lyndsay's graduation.
We have been so busy every weekend the entire month of May
with weddings, birthday parties, & baby showers, etc.
Larson trimmed all the hedges, I mowed the grass at our house
and at my mama's, Larson did the weed-eating at both houses,
and we pressure-washed our house.
We started at 9am and didn't finish until around 3pm.

I was supposed to be a birthday party for
a friend's little boy, Jaden, at 3pm.
Needless to say, I didn't make it. :( 
We did let Jubal get in his pool for a little while,
which he loved, of course.

Lyndsay's graduation was Sunday evening.
We are so proud of her!
She has become a beautiful, smart, determined young woman.

Lyndsay & Mammaw Brackin (my mama).

She will now go on to college at Georgia Southern University,
where she wants to go into Restaurant & Hotel Management.

I wish her much luck & hope she does well.
I know her daddy would have been so
proud of her, if he were alive.

Lyndsay with her Mammaw Street; her mother, Marianne;
her two sisters, Lynda & Lacy; and her two nieces, Ashton & Lily.
She also has a brother that was unable to attend, and several more nieces & nephews.

Also, last, but not least...
I'm so excited that my Mother's Day gift finally arrived on Monday!
It was handmade just for me by juliethefish, and I love it!!!

It came in this cute little box.

I am so happy about it!
I also ordered a 24" chain so I can dress it
up a little more when I need to.

Well, that's about all of my ramblings, for now.
It was a busy, but great weekend.

We have another busy weekend coming
up & then maybe we can rest.

Or...maybe not! ;)
