I've been collecting little things to take to Denver with me next week. I found the cutest Pirate swim/beach towel for Matthew. At Target - I love that store! I know - they live nowhere near a beach, but I couldn't resist. Besides - they'll come here in June to visit, right? And we can go to the beach then, right? I've got Lexi's birthday gifts all ready. I got her a butterfly jewelry box that is also a music box. When you open it up, a butterfly spins while the music plays. At the opposite end of the spectrum is a Hoppy. Do you remember those round balls you sit on and hold onto two little handles and then you hop around the yard on it? Yeah, got her one of those.
The niche in the shower - we almost forgot to put it in!
The bathroom keeps evolving. The cabinet is almost done. It's being varnished and it looks amazing! I can't wait to see it assembled, installed, and topped with granite! Hardy board should be done tomorrow, tile started this weekend. Wait until you see - it'll be glorious.
L varnishing away on the cabinet doors.
The almost finished piece!
The wedding approacheth. I went back to Macy's and purchased the turquoise necklace. Next: shoes. Ashley is immersed in the planning, Scott just wants it all to be over. Typical. We meet the father in law on Friday night over dinner. Ashley calls him "Padre." I don't think I will.
Mother's Day on Sunday. I haven't a clue. We're having a BBQ dinner with mom and dad and my grandma and my aunt and my brothers and wives on Saturday - in honor of Grandma. I want to take my mom out for a nice afternoon, so it will have to wait until after Denver. She's always been so good about not being hung up on the actual day. She's always understood that, at least in our family, there has always been a multi-generational thing going on. There's ALWAYS been a great-grandmother in the picture. (That side of the family is a long-lived bunch) So it's hard to fit in all the mothers in one day. I get something quickly from my kids so I can make a date not on Mother's Day with my mom so she can be with my grandma on Mother's Day. Oldest mom takes precedence. My mom will have her day, eventually, and so, hopefully, will I. I just want to be alert enough to enjoy having reached the milestone. Until then, I will keep squirming during the Mother's Day tributes in church (Angels From Heaven! Sweet Spiritual Seraphim!) and will enjoy every minute spent laughing with the two great ladies in my life who taught me what being a mother is all about.
