3 Things May

I’m a sucker for a good link up. I saw that The Horton Family blog is hosting a “3 Things May” link up and decided to play along. It’s always fun to learn more about me right? I’m assuming that’s why you’re here anyway!

(1) Picture fail on this one, but the boys planted me some flowers for Mother’s Day. We picked out two kinds of flowers that I also don’t know the names of, there are some purple ones and some yellow ones. We put them in my little planter on the front steps and I love them. I got a hanging basket of petunias from my in-laws in some gorgeous pinks and purples too.

(2) We are celebrating the kick off to summer with a family picnic on Memorial Day, an end of the year picnic at Ollie’s school and a date night for our 13th wedding anniversary. And gearing up for our vacation in early June!

(3) I think the three qualities that make a great mom are: patience, humor and heart. And a little prayer too. Those are all things I learned from my mom. She is special to me because she is not just my mom but my best friend. I know she will always listen to me with love. She taught me to have faith in God and that we are stronger than we know. We’re pretty much Lorelai and Rory (except I’m the coffee addict!).

This was a super fun link up! I’m hoping to do it again in June! Thanks to Laura from the Horton Family!

  1. Oh my gosh Lorelai *sigh*.

    Very nice. I wish I had that relationship with my mom. I did get her flowers for Mother’s Day, too. Seems like the perfect thing to do, right? And it’s a plant, rather than a vase of ’em.

    You do find all the linkups, don’t you? And you rocked this one.

  2. I love that picture of you and your mom. Sounds like you’ve got some great plans to kick off summer. Early congrats on your wedding anniversary!

  3. Aw, your mom sounds awesome! There are various events around the city for Memorial Day weekend so hopefully I can go to some. We’ll see what works out, because I think I’ll have the nieces and nephew a lot of that weekend. LOL Love picnics though – how fun!!!


  4. You are so fortunate to have such a lovely relationship with your mother. Such a sweet picture of the two of you.
    Congratulations on your anniversary! We are also 13 years this year 🙂
