mother's day

Photobucket

i usually don't eat breakfast, but i certainly expect breakfast in bed on mother's day and my little dears didn't fail me. i loved hearing them downstairs working on their pictures (nash's was a train track on one side and a glass of chocolate milk spilling on the other side. haven's was a beautiful mess of scribbles.) they tried to sneak up the stairs to "wake" me up so i faked it. it'll be a heck of a day when they can ever sneak up on me; they were born with built-in megaphones. nash wished me "best mother's day" with a big hug and kiss just about every chance he could get. and haven worked very hard on a project in nursery to give to me but then loved it so much she couldn't part with it. the girl lives for projects and can spend hours on them. i think she is related to me.

bevie played his part as the bhe (best husband ever - which isn't unusual for him) and did as much as he possibly could with his gimpy arm. he even made me a delicious dinner...avocado sandwich (quite possibly my favorite food) and quinoa salad. and then, of course, there was my awesome gift: new bedding! when we moved here we lost a part of our bed somewhere along the way. i was pretty upset about it because it was a platform bed (no box spring) which meant we basically had to start from scratch and get a whole new mattress set and are back to having that with no actual bed, just a metal rail. not only that, our old bed (which was from ikea) had ikea bedding and it didn't fit the new one. it felt like we were living in our first apartment again and the regression was killing me. enter my beautiful new bedding. i am in love. and it may have gotten me out of my "i hate this freaking rental house" funk!

i feel a few projects coming on...

i wanted to take a picture of my bedding now that it's steamed and looking sharp, so thought i'd spice it up for you;) self timer + me jumping on a bed without hitting my head on the ceiling = a messy bed that isn't looking so sharp. go figure.

thanks, suzanne! it's from bed bath & beyond (i know...totally didn't expect that). it's made by echo designs and is called jaipur. this is a duvet set, but macy's also carries the comforter sets.
