Our Weekend In Photos

And just like that, another weekend is in the books. Two things--first, on the weather scale Indiana scored a 12 out of 10 this weekend. Mad props to you sunshine and warmth. At one point I was sweating--SWEATING. I didn't even know I was capable of such a thing anymore. Two, it's almost the middle of May already. I don't understand this. I promise you last week it was the end of January and I was swearing at the amount of snow that never stopped falling. How it goes from that to sitting outside for dinner with friends in a matter of what seemed like 7 days I'm not sure, but I'll take it.

Between the Alt For Everyone conference I attended [all from behind my computer], sitting outside at Starbucks for four hours [yes four], wandering around our local farmers market, celebrating my mother with an outdoor lunch, spilling ice cream all over my dog's head, and breaking in the boat for the first time this year, it was fantastic. Here's a little bit of what took place from behind the lens of my camera. I still can't decide if I over-edited these photos but that's neither here nor there at this point. Popcorn and pineapple is calling my name and you know that those are two things I can't hit the ignore button on. COMING POPPY PINEY. [that's the cute name for popcorn and pineapple].

This would be pre-ice cream spill. She is now sticky and a teeny tiny bit more of a hot mess than she typically is. I could give her a bath but then that would involve giving her a bath so I think I'll pass and just love her past her imperfect fur. Reason number two million why I don't have currently have kids. I would choose love over bath time.


Because my mom went and decided to give birth to me [holler] I decided I would cook [which actually means purchase everything and make nothing] lunch...I thought it seemed like a fair trade off. Also, I'm pretty sure hosting lunch is equivalent to giving birth. Having to remember to take things out of the oven at a certain time is worth at least three solid pushes of a kids head through your you know what. Which reminds me, somebody please tell me that the whole kid coming out of your vajayjay is a joke. Certainly those measurements don't line up. Anyhow, happy mothers day moms. Jobs well done getting us kids out..however that may be. Let's eat! 

And because going through birth was so stressful [just think guys--we had to be the ones to come out of that little space] I found it necessary to wind down Mothers Day out on the water with a silver bullet in hand, toes in the air, and a smile plastered on my face. Pretty sure that's the same position I was when in the womb.

All in all, it was pretty great and I am so thankful for days like these.

ps. On a more serious note--thank you to all of the moms out there. You make this world such an incredible special place to be. The way that you perform the hardest task ever given with such love and passion is admirable. Way to go mamma's, you rock. But seriously, I am sorry about your private parts. #ouch

  11. How To Stop A Divorce And Save Your Marriage?(Dr.Brave).

    Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in TEXAS,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly email this wonderful man {bravespellcaster@gmail.com},i f you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Brave for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, Thanks..
