Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

You, guys! I am dying over here. I miss you all so, so much! My Mother's Day was very eventful and has left me without power, cable, and internet. Our power is back up, but it's taking the cable company a little longer to get their act together. Long story short. We went out for an early morning breakfast on Sunday at the Waffle House- nothing but the best for mom ;) And we returned to this.

Happy Mother's Day to me!!

The tree was huge and had ripped down all the power and cable lines for us and the next-door neighbors. I am so thankful the tree didn't do any serious damage to either house because I know it could have been much worse. We spent the entirity of Mother's Day with chainsaws, cutting up the tree and dragging limbs. It was not ideal, but the entire family rallied for ten hours and got it done. I am thankful for my husband's family- three generations out there working (including three moms on Mother's Day!) together toward a common goal.

But the lack of internet has really messed up my blogging schedule! I will be back up and running tomorrow with an awesome Wardrobe Challenge organized by Tori at My Thrifty Chic and I can't wait for you to see it! In the meantime, bear with me and know I'll be back (say it in the "Terminator" voice so you'll know how serious I am!)

I did like it! I am keeping my fingers crossed that I win :)

And we definitely had lots of quality family time ;)

It wasn't ideal, but it could have been so much worse, so I am thankful!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I'm definitely frustrated!
You would have done a much better job, but it has inspired me to to relearn some basic sewing this summer. So that's a good thing!

I'm ready for some normalcy!
