On Mother's Day my mom and I went to a local McMinnville farm to get some hanging baskets, and we totally hit the Jackpot! We filled up the truck with beautiful flowers, and I got to see a friend from high school and meet her two beautiful twin boys. If you are in the McMinnville area, I would absolutely suggest Schmidt Farms.
Today I spent the day working outside our house, planted new plants, and I am in love with our hanging baskets! This is coming from the girl who used to lie about having homework to get out of yard work (sorry Mom & Dad!)
The beautiful baskets :)
Trying an azalea on the left for the first time, and this is try #3 for getting a hydrangea to grow here on the right. I do not have a green thumb, obviously.
Our new little tree by the front door.
I love our house.

Brian and I just spent Saturday night and all day Sunday at our respective parents' houses to celebrate with our own moms for Mother's day, and it was he first time we decided to split up on a holiday. We figured that it might be the last time we are not celebrating us on this special day, so we focused fully on our moms. I think our moms each enjoyed having us for the whole day, but it was a little odd dropping him off at his parents' and heading to mine. Flashback to college!
We just got home and were heading to bed, and I, being super mushy, explained to Brian how much I missed him and how he's my favorite person. He replied with his usual "you too"and said good night, but out of nowhere about a minute later he said "happy future mother's day."
My heart melted. I'm so in love with my husband.

Mother's Day was a fun excuse to get together with my family, and celebrate our mom! Not to mention the yummy food and great company!

We are all a little sunburned, but we love it!
I had to put this one in, no one looks awesome, except for Mom. Hahaha :)

For our very "Pinterest Inspired" baby shower that my friend Jenna and I threw last week, we did a bunch of DIY crafts. One of my crafts for the party was inspired by my little sis for chalkboards made from old cabinet doors. Her blog, seen here, had a great step by step tutorial that made this a fun and cute project. Here is my version of the finished project:
I found 4 old cabinet doors downtown Portland at Re-Store, which is a habitat for humanity re-sale store downtown Portland. I found these cabinet doors for $1 a piece. That's right, $1!! Amazing! With the help of Brian, we prepped our garage for spray paint and I got to work. Here are the steps:
|1- Spray with primer|
|2- Tape off frame to protect from|
Thanks Brian for the action pic :)
