Busy. That's exactly what this weekend was. Busy.
Lots of packing was done. Our home is in a complete state of chaos.
The new owners of Ryan's bachelor days furniture came by and picked up their purchase, which means all of our clothing that was once tucked neatly away into drawers, is now packed in suitcases all over our bedroom floor. Awesome. Boxes have taken over every possible square inch of the lower level of our house...and though the disarray is frustrating, it symbolizes the exciting changes taking place this coming weekend! I cannot believe we are moving in 5 short days!
Ryan and I had a lot of fun this weekend shopping for things for our new digs, starting with new lamps for our bedroom....Those who know me well, know I have a serious
Moving on.....We decided to go to the historic square in downtown McKinney to check out some of the shops, and I'm so glad we did. I haven't been in forever. My mother and I used to shop and lunch there together years ago when I was a stay at home mom with little ones at my feet. Lots of great memories. It's nice to see the city working hard to keep downtown area alive. Some of the old shops are still open with lots of new ones that are to.die.for., fantastic restaurants and a wonderful winery. Speaking of the winery, after we made our way around the square, Ryan and I sat on the patio at the
Landon Winery and enjoyed one of the best glasses of Pinot Grigio I have ever had. We like it so much, we purchased a case for our new wine chiller and joined their wine club!
How fun is this!
I'm so excited to have new place to go relax, have a nice glass of wine, watch the goings on around and listen to the live music they have on the weekends after strolling through the shops. Love it, and the wine club has monthly social events, tastings, etc. to boot. Greatness.
On to Mother's Day....without.any.pictures.
I sadly left my camera at home on Sunday, so you're forced to use your imagination once again. We went over to my parent's house with the whole Carter family...we're up to 9 grandchildren now. So much fun. Needless to say, it was a great time hanging out together, despite the somewhat chilly weather. The kids played baseball outside while the adults enjoyed a rare chance to catch up with each other.
Love my family.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and Mother's Day!
Here's to another busy week!!
