Weekend Recap: Mother’s Day Weekend and a Winner

We had a GREAT weekend around these parts.  And I hope you did too! 
For starters….the winner of the I.O. Metro Giveaway is comment #2…Linda S. 
(this says 9 comments, but one wasn’t local…she was just leaving a comment.  So there were 8 entries).
 Linda…. email me to make arrangements for picking up your prize!
This weekend mom and I started off picking strawberries at Wild Things Farm.  Since I’m not getting a CSA box this week, I needed my strawberry fix. 

We had never done this before, and we asked the guy for advice.  He said “Pick the red ones.” Ha!  So we did.  We each picked about 3/4 of  a bucket full. 

I came home and gave Mikey a pupcake- a puppy safe cupcake from Bliss Cupcakes.  He licked that plate clean.

Then we went to lunch at Patron with our moms (and my dad too!).  We had a great Mexican lunch, some cupcakes (to celebrate mom’s birthday as well), and then we went to Cross My Art for a painting class. We had a great time, and we made some masterpieces!
We came home and I grilled supper for everyone: steaks, potatoes, asparagus, corn, and beans. Yum-O.
Sunday was a great service at church (we went to our contemporary service for a change up!), and then some rest and cleaning.  We also went on a nice walk with Mikey and mom as well.

This weekend was so nice.  Family time, good food, being active outside, and rest.  I’ll take it!
How was your Mother’s Day?


  1. I’ve never picked strawberries but have always wanted too-they aren’t in season here yet though! Were they super juicy and tasty, like better than grocery store bought ones?
