First Day of May...

Today I spent the day with my mom. I took her shopping to find her Mother's Day gift. Miguel is doing a lot of work on her yard so I wanted to get her something to put out there. We went by HL, but she didn't find anything she really liked. I picked up something for a wish RAK and two cute stamps that were half off.

So I was going to take her to Big Lots to look at this really cute planter thingie I had seen earlier in the week. On the way over, I went by M's by Ingram. On the way there we saw this really cute wishing well planter out in front of this little store. I had just seen one in the morning on the drive over to my mom's and was thinking I'd love to find her something like that, so we stopped to take a look.

They had the cutest stuff out front. The small wishing well was $45. As we were heading into the store, I noticed a much larger one out front. I checked the price and it was only $9 more!!! So I got her that one instead. My mom is always saying not to spend money on her, but I think she is worth it and so much more. I wish I had more $$$ to buy my mom all sorts of things:)...but I do what I can:)

So that completed our M day shopping. I went by M's and found some cool goodies in some $ bins; some MM velvet stickers, some chipboard letters, some Vintage Hip flowers and a few other goodies.

Afterwards we went and had lunch at this Chinese restaurant we like. Hadn't had Chinese in a while. Ended up taking my mom to Big Lots anyway then went by Walmart real quick. My mom bought me a pair of sandals I wanted. I just LOVE the Earth Shoes that W carries. They are my FAVE shoe.

Took my mom home after I picked up the kids and hung out there for a while. Brought Lij home with me for the weekend.

Got a couple of LOs done over the last few days...
This one was inspired by a LO by Sasha Farina. I used CI paper; background and Cosmo Cricket Hello Sunshine pp. I LOVE this line. Prima flowers and bling flourish, AL buttons, 7 Gypsies A La Card sticker strips and a small doilie.

This one was inspired by a LO I saw on the Prima blog. Background paper is Prima as are all the flowers. Lil' Davis chip alphas and number circle, Bazzill Edge, BG pp and HS verb sticker.

This past week I spent some time outside working on the courtyard. I started clearing out the area; got all the leaves raked out and pulled a whole bunch of weeds. This coming week, I hope to get those pavers out, clean out some more and then start leveling the ground. I wish I'd taken some before pics, but I'm going to try to remember to take some as I make progress.

I'm exhausted so I am heading off to bed. Hope everyone has a nice National Scrapbooking Day tomorrow. Maybe I'll get some scrapping done myself. I just gotta make a quick run to Walmart and the PO, so the rest of my day is free:)
