I had an impromptu over night visit from my Mom yesterday. I just love it when that happens, it was so good to see her. :) We did an easy dinner of tacos(Ella's FAVOURITE meal) and then Mom and I went out to run a couple of errands. One of the errands took us to Wal Mart where my mother kept saying that she couldn't believe how cheap everything was. That is why that place keeps sucking me in and why small businesses go out of business. Who can compete?!
While I was there I found this super cute EOS lip balm. I love it! It's 100% natural, 95% organic and smells great too. It now has a permanent place in my bag.
With everything sprouting, blooming and generally turning green and flowery I have been having lovely little surprises all over the yard. That is one fun thing about moving to a new place..you never know what plant life you will find as the year moves on. I was very happy to find that two of the trees in my front yard are dogwoods. I just love dogwoods, they have the prettiest blossoms.
And speaking of dogwoods, my mother who follows along on my blog(just like a good mother should ;) ) read how I wanted a pink dogwood(see post here: Happy Earth Day!) and brought me the one that had been sitting in a pot in her yard for the last five years(she bought it when Ella was born and had every intention of planting it but with their house being for sale it just never happened). I'm thrilled! And it will have a permanent home here in our yard.
I have been keeping busy with the jewelry which I am just loving. Here are a couple of pictures of the latest pieces:

Hope you're having a great day today. The weather here has been a bit dreary and Chris was actually home sick from work today so it's been kind of a lazy one. It started with a three hour phone conversation with my sister (you know it has been too long since you chatted when catching up takes three hours) and hasn't been a whole lot busier since. It's nice to have days like that once in awhile. :)
