Mothers Day

Arcade Night, The Wright Brother’s National Memorial, and Other Fun

Picking up where I left off in my last post, we are enjoying our time in the Outer Banks! We had another nice weather day on Saturday so my mom, Sadie, and I made it to a new-to-us park while my dad and Jimmy went to day two of the car show.

I definitely had a wicked sunburn from the day before, so I made sure to wear a long sleeve shirt and lots of sunscreen 😂 (more…)

Mother’s Day 2020

We had a lovely Mother’s Day in the Zottola household!

Succulents in decorative pot and yellow tulips

My mother-in-law and sister-in-law gifted me succulents and beautiful yellow tulips!

It started with Jimmy bringing everyone into bed to wake me up. Having Jimmy, Sadie, Malcolm, and Niva all piled into bed is one of my favorite ways to wake up. It’s total chaos, but the best kind.

We had church online, and then Jimmy ordered us Starbucks coffee and it was glorious! I had a tall blonde roast with cream and he had a cafe misto. 

I got to do some of my most favorite things:

  • Watercoloring
  • Worked on our garden
  • Took a family walk around our neighborhood

We also got the grass cut and weed whacked while Sadie was napping, and then finished out the day with the evening church service online.

Afterwards, I did a bit of real estate work while Jimmy worked on our dryer.

Broken dryer

I turned it on the other day and heard a loud noise + saw a flash. We turned it on and it seemed like it was working, but we quickly figured out it wasn’t actually drying anything because the heating element broke. Hopefully we’ll get it back in working order soon 🙂

How was your Mother’s Day?
