Where is this month going?!
sorry for the abscence. a lot's been going on. i don't know how my favourite on-line journal owners do it...post interesting words and or delicious photos everyday, that is. i need to work on that big time...
but don't you think that EVERYDAY is 'Mother's Day?'
woke up to my dh's clamouring of pots&pans early in the morning. the lil' ones and my dh were making me a beautiful breakfast of pancakes, bacon, eggs, chocolate-covered strawberries+bananas, juicy grapes+melons, lil' chocolate mini-cupcakes+mini-chocolate chip muffins and toasted French loaves...mmmmm!
we then went to early mass and afterwards visited our sweet Angel Sinead...wished she was here with us...that would just make my Mother's Day absolutely perfect but we all know that Sinead is in a better place and is looking down on us...dh + the kiddos also made me a fantastic dinner of ribs, peas/corn, rice + French loaves...simply DIVINE! my hubby can sure grill mean+delectable ribs...oh...i was going nutz+boltz... then after dinner, we took a family bike ride to my sis' house and hung out playing wii...simply a gorgeous day and beautiful memories were made.
speaking of gorgeousness...
this past spring break...the lil' munchkins and i visited my sis, Mary ann. i finally had the chance to visit her sweet + beautiful friend, CJ's, adorable French shoppe called Annabelle's...what a gorgeous shoppe CJ owns...i swooned at the very sight of that humongus eiffel tower picture behind the counter...i also was silently screaming with delight at every single sweet corner...this shoppe was truly filled to the brim with utter sweetness...CJ was a doll (and so was her very HANDSOME son, Matt-who helps manages the shoppe-btw...he's not attached and well...if you know what i mean!) CJ was wonderful and let me take some shots of her shoppe...simply BEAUTIFUL!
she also started her adventures into blogland and has been posting some wonderful stories about her shoppe and her dreams...please do visit her blog + website + brick+mortar shoppe in Beloit, WI...you will surely love everything you see...CJ's shoppe is INCREDIBLE!
i adore this! the mannequin + pink gown...ahhh soooo tres jolie!
i heart this poster!
