Happy Mother's Day!!

I love my Mom. We've been through a lot over these last 28+ years - specifically when I was in the age range of, oh - middle school into parts of college ;-) I'm glad we're on the other side now. She really is one of my very good friends. She is always there for me, giving, and loving.

At my wedding shower!

Switzerland :-)

Paris - 2008

There are so many more pictures than just these that I want to share but these are the one's on my computer :) My life has been filled with memories that we've created together or they've provided to help me create on my own.

Thanks for everything Mom. I love you.

There were a LOT of pictures this weekend that capture my eyes. Maybe it is because I am actually writing this on Saturday morning before Jason is up, or that it really just was a memorable weekend. Or, it might be a bit of both.

Let us start with Friday. I wish there was pictures of the Shuttle launch but it did not happen due to a mechanical issue.

Friday - The Royal Wedding

Fairy Tale!

The sheer amount of people is amazing.

Saturday - WILD Weather!!

This is interesting. The blew up the levee to save a town but in turn hurt another town. Very, very interesting.

Terrifying and gorgeous at the same time.

Sunday - The Wicked Warlock is DEAD!

Lots of power in that room.

Lots of celebration out here.

I rarely like to get political. It just doesn't interest me. Sure, I have my opinions but there really isn't any use in "fighting" with other people over theirs. They have their own opinions too. But the political backlash and slandering and commenting after the death of Osama bin Laden was too much for me. There is ALWAYS two sides (or sometimes) more to every story and this is certainly not excluded from that rule. It was very evident within a day on facebook who was on what side and the trash that was coming out of some of my "friends" mouths was astonishing. Personally, I am glad the world is one person safer. I know there are many others out there like him, who idolize him, but he can no longer direct harm towards others. For that, I am thankful.

a little over 1/3...

...of the way done with 2011 :)

Just a friendly reminder that I've been loyally {okay, I had to back track one or two times} taking a picture a day. Sometimes it is ordinary stuff, sometimes it is related to a post I might write on here, but it is always about our life.

Head over to check it out!!!

Elements Glass - Easter 2011

We headed back to Elements Glass to make Easter Eggs a few weekends ago. It was just us and my Mom. My Dad was supposed to join us but he had kneww surgery right before so we didn't think it would be best.

We had the same guy (Aaron) as our teacher and he did a great job again! We will certainly be back over and over again. They are actually doing flowers for Mother's Day but since we just made eggs we're opting out this year...

We got to use tools this time!

Mom giving it a go.

Making the "feather" pattern.

Team work. There were lots of jokes running around about the Son-In-Law (Jason) having the paddle :)

{Click to enlarge}
This is a shot of the colors going on the base. Really cool to see how they made stripes.

Jason doing it all by himself. I guess if you come back they trust you!

More team work!

Here I go.

Adding white.

Mom's for herself.

Mom's for Tony & Kellie.

i heart teddy bears...

If you know me, you know it is no secret that I love teddy bears! I love them big, small, round, fat, and preferably fluffy and soft. Well, I have found the biggest bear I've ever seen and it makes me smile :-)

I saw them on Thursday...

I took them home on Sunday...

One for me and one for my classroom. I just couldn't resist!!

I loved him on Monday :)
