Mother’s Day Weekend in Snapshots


Friday was spent working, pet sitting, and getting gifts together for our mamas.

Malcolm likes to hang out with me while I work!

At night, we went to my mother-in-law’s and enjoyed Chinese takeout. We gave her a French press coffee maker and she reported that she loved it when she tried it out the next morning!


Saturday also included pet sitting, and a few hours spent packing up meals at our church for I.D.E.S., which stands for International Disaster Emergency Service.

I believe we packed over 20,000 meals to be shipped to mission partners and churches throughout the world. The mission partners and churches then distribute the meals to anyone in their surrounding community who is in need of food relief. It was a really great experience!

Jimmy and I also worked on our garden, which I need to blog about soon! We will be planting in within the next few weeks, and I am so pumped!


On Sunday, we went to church and then headed to my mom and dad’s for a cookout! I gave my mom this book, which was a lot of fun to customize and decorate with pictures and stickers.

After having a delicious lunch, Jimmy and I headed back home because I had some pups to take care of. Then we went to evening Bible study and then bed because we were tuckered out! It was a fun-filled weekend 🙂

Tell me about your weekend!



  1. That fruit salad from Mother’s Day looks SO delicious!! 🙂
    Definitely sounds like a wonderful weekend!! I enjoyed my Mother’s Day weekend as well… We had cheeseburgers at my parent’s house, and then they came to my house for icecream sundaes. I’ve kind of been stuck in the house since the C-section, so it was really nice to get out for a bit. 🙂

  2. I’m glad you had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend. 🙂

    You and Jimmy must be so excited about getting ready to plant your garden! I love this time of year, when nature turns green and everything starts flowering.

    I went for a trail walk with Aimée and my mum at the weekend, and we had some lunch sitting outside at a café. So relaxing! 🙂

    1. We are getting soo excited to plant our garden! I think we will be doing it next weekend 🙂 I love this time of year, too. It’s so beautiful!

      Your weekend sounds so lovely! A trail walk with Aimee, and an outdoor lunch?! Perfect!!

  3. Sounds like a great weekend 🙂 It’s awesome that you and your mama are so close! How is her new job going??

    I can’t wait to hear about your garden! It’s already gotten SO hot down here in Florida that I’ve pretty much missed the window for planting anything except potatoes 😦 lol!

    1. It was such a fun weekend!! Funny story about the job, she didn’t end up taking it! She decided she wanted to keep working for our family’s business. Yay!

      I can’t wait to post about our garden! I am getting so pumped! I can’t believe it’s already getting so hot in FL! It has been in the 60s here for most of the week, ha.

  4. Awesome weekend! 20,000 meals! What a wonderful deed.

    Can’t wait to hear about your garden. And Malcolm looks like he needs to learn to relax – so stressed in that first picture. 😉

    1. Haha, yes Malcolm needs to take a chill pill 😉 waaay too uptight!

      I can’t wait to plant our garden and start posting about it… and enjoying the bounty 🙂

  5. You’re mom is a wonderful woman who has a great couple daughters 🙂 My weekend was splendid, I visited my friends in my old city…however it made me miss them SO MUCH! Bittersweet for sure!

  6. Aw I love the photo of you and your mom! Beautiful ladies! I also love the mug you’re holding so cute! Sounds like a terrific way to celebrate Mothers Day x2 😉
