Reporting Back

After all my stressing, my cleaning frenzy and my Triple Red Alert, I'm happy to report that my son's girlfriend is an absolute sweetheart. She even brought me flowers! Next time I get this crazy, I hope someone will remind me of this.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. As fun as the weekend has been, I'm looking forward to getting back to my normal routine, and being able to visit you all again. I have some great garden pictures to share with you, and I feel the need to set a pretty table soon, too. :)


  1. Good morning, and welcome back to your daily routine.

    I knew your son's girlfriend would love everything. She must have been charmed.

    I love your new banner.

  2. ahhh, of course she loved YOU and don't they look adorable? So glad you had a nice visit!


  3. Glad it all turned out well. They look like a nice couple together. I am sure she enjoyed the visit. Why wouldn't she?
    Have a great day, Janie

  4. Glad you had a good time. I'm sure she was a bit nervous before arriving, too. ~Adrienne~

  5. Mary - I knew it would be wonderful. We stress way too much about the dusting and stuff because it's all about the people and the fun.

    Like Adrienne said, if you think you were nervous, multiply that by 10 and that's how nervous that young woman was.

    She's adorable, he's adorable......but what's that on the wall behind them?????? Is that a mural? Have you featured it and I just missed it? Looks wonderful

  6. I knew all along how much she would love you AND your sweet home and I TRIED to tell you this but...you know how us women are. We gotta find it out for ourselves!
    They look so cute!
    hugs, bj

  7. Mary,

    I am so happy that all went so well.
    Not that any of us ever doubted that for a minute!

    Love you new banner photo too!


  19. Hi!
    So glad everything turned out well! She looks like a lovely young woman.

  20. But of course your son would choose a wonderful girlfriend. Glad that it went well!

  21. Beautiful flowers, and how thoughtful of her! The bonus is that not only does your son have a sweet girlfriend, you have a nice clean house as well!

  22. She looks really sweet and cute! They look great together!

    All of your flowers look lovely...


  23. Hi Mary
    I believe, you cannot reassuring on the girlfriend of your son look…
    not in vain, bring he her proudly to you home.
    Greetings from Barbara, which arrived in its little, red house.

  24. I can't belive it has taken me 3 days to get a chance to catch up and check out how the girlfriend visit went. Sounds like it was all ok. If nothing else you have done things you wanted doing anyway.
    Nothing like a 'panic attack' to make us catch up with things.

  25. I'm happy to hear it all went so well Mary. How could she not love you??! The flowers she bought you are just gorgeous too!
