Good morning, everyone!
As I began to write the recap for this week, I realized that each day was filled with so much that you’d be here for hours trying to get through it all. I’ve decided to try my best to hop on the blog each morning this week to fill you in on all the fun things we’ve been up to around here. We’ve been cooking up new meals, landscaping a ton (we have eight huge trees arriving today!) putting rooms together, and just hanging out. I’ll share some of the meals we’ve been cooking tomorrow 😊 Today, I want to recap Mother’s Day!
The best thing we ever did was get rid of the T.V. in our room. I’ve been falling asleep so early each evening and rising with the sun. I downloaded the sleep app that goes with the apple watch to monitor my sleep, and my patterns have been so different since moving here. I’m sure the extra sleep has a lot to do with getting worn out during the day, but I think taking out the T.V. is the biggest reason. Ok, enough about that.
I was up bright and early on Sunday morning to drink coffee, watch 90 Day Fiance, and cook breakfast for my mom. It was so fun going out on Sunday morning because we had our fence installed, which meant the dogs could go off and do their business on their own without us having to walk them a mile. I have a feeling my mornings are going to be much more relaxed now! I’ll blog more about the fence and all that I did on Saturday this week.
I was out cutting flowers from around my house for my mom’s brunch table. My dahlias love their new spot, and they have been blooming like crazy! After I sign off the blog, I have to head out and clip some more, deadhead the petunias, plant some driftwood roses, water the flowerbeds, and then get ready to plant the new trees we are having delivered! I kind of love this never-ending cycle!
And our new fence! 😊
I was so happy to cook breakfast for the family for the first time at the new house.
I made my fluffy gluten-free pancake recipe and it turned out amazing! I made a lemon berry one with juice from half a lemon, poppy seeds, blueberries, lemon zest, and blackberries! The second one was a cinnamon chocolate chip.
I have had more messages than ever about these pots. They are pretty much at every single Home Goods I go into and they come in all kinds of sizes and colors.
I also made scrambled eggs, peach and watermelon mimosas, a fresh fruit tray with yellow watermelon, grapes, berries, mandarins, and fresh coffee! Fresh flowers from my garden!
The lemon berry pancakes were AMAZING! They tasted like a fresh lemon poppy seed muffin.
After breakfast, we headed outside to play bags and run around the backyard with the dogs. It still feels so surreal that this is our new house and the dogs have their own backyard.
Later in the evening, we headed down to the hiking trails in the neighborhood. It’s so awesome because this summer, Becca and I can just throw our tube into the river from the house instead of having to drive and park the car at both ends.
Thanks for stopping by to read today! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and a happy Mother’s Day.
Questions for you!
- What’s your favorite pancake filling?
- Have you watched 90 day fiance?
- If you had to watch a cooking show, would you rather it be produce & edited clean or more of a “cook with me” style vlog.
I’ll see you in tomorrow’s blog! xo
