May Day

Does anyone know where April went? I can’t believe it’s already May. This year is just flying by and I don’t know how to slow it down.

I would say sorry for not blogging over the weekend, but I’m not :)  The weekend was full of family, friends, food, and a lot of fun, and I didn’t want to turn my computer on and miss anything.

We celebrated a birthday, a graduation, and the fact that we’ll have one more family member in a little over a month. I didn’t get to see my mom and Mammaw, but we did Skype with my Dad Saturday evening, so I almost got to see everyone!

I’ve got a bunch of pictures that should recap my weekend pretty well. Here’s what you missed Mom! :)

French Toast made with homemade sourdough, Amish market bacon (the best!), fruit salad.

And check this out.

Maggie’s not allowed up on the couches/chairs because she sheds so much. But she weasled her way up into Nick’s lap while he was napping ;) It was so cute, I let her stay up there long enough to get a couple of pictures.


This weekend was packed full of good times and I’m glad I didn’t miss out on anything.

The bad thing? I’ve started to get a head cold and I’m not happy about it. My head has been super congested the past few days, so I bought some cold medicine last night and am crossing my fingers that it doesn’t get worse.

Breakfast + coffee time for us! Gotta get going – it’s going to be a busy Monday.


What did you do this weekend? Any fun plans for the month of May?
