Splash, Dash, Dot - Having Fun Mixing Colors and Patterns

Yesterday I celebrated being a Mommy to my two beautiful boys.  
As circumstances would have it, my day looked perhaps a bit more 
familiar than I would have dreamed up for myself.  
I was the first one awake at 6:15.  
Not gonna lie... WTH??
Coffee brewed by 6:40.  
Baby from crib at 6:55.
Poopy diaper no more by 7:30. 
Three loads of laundry folded by 7:45.
Pancake breakfast ready at 8:30.
I did manage to get in my long run before church at 11:15. Big Smile.
Who knew every restaurant in town would be 
booked until 3pm on Mother's Day?! HA!

So, we ventured over to Earth Fare for lunch from the buffet.  
It was delish and turned out to be the perfect spot for a few snap shots.
It was a pretty typical day, and in retrospect 
it just wouldn't have seemed right to have it any other way.
Oh, and I did manage to get in an afternoon nap.  Suuuu-perb.

  3. accidentally called me the other morning...and there was a voicemail. Haha. No talking, just sounded like a disposal, vacuum cleaner, etc. going. I got my Fibi&Clo sandals yesterday. They fit wonderfully...thank the Lord. PS Where do you get your hair colored? I want your color, or at least lightened a little for summer. I'm at Modern for now.
