You guys these past few weeks have been sooo busy. I feel like I haven’t stopped.
A couple weeks ago flew to Labrador City to spend the weekend with Jeff and his family and to keep him company on the drive back. Lab City, its not an awesome spot, but I am so glad I went. I got to see a lot of the province that I hadn’t seen before, and I loved spending time with Jeff’s family. They’re a blast. We couldn’t have asked for more generous and gracious hosts. I wish they lived closer.
The drive back was soooo long. Hours upon hours of nothing. A six hour long section of unpaved road. And zero cell service for a majority of the time. We left Lab City at 5am and got to our hotel in Forteau at 7pm. We showered, grabbed pizza for supper, and were asleep long before 10pm. The next day we got up at the crack of dawn, took the ferry to St. Barbe and hit the road for home. We finally pulled into our driveway around 2:30pm and I wanted to kiss the pavement in our driveway.
Last weekend Jeff and I had a fire with friends Friday night. Spent Saturday doing chores. Sunday was beautiful so we ate breakfast on the deck, hung out at the petting zoo in our back yard, and worked on a few wedding things (yay).

Finally sandal weather
And this past weekend I went home to spend Mother’s Day with my Momma. Which was really really nice. And I stuffed my face with lobster and mussels for the first time this year! Sooo good.
PS. I haven’t had a can of Pepsi in 8 days. Which is huge for an addict like me. Here’s to hoping the pounds start falling off.
Have you been super busy lately too? How did you spend Mother’s Day weekend?
I’m captaining the struggle bus today. I’ve managed to catch a cold and while my drug of choice, Benylin, has been doing an excellent job of keeping the sicky feelings away, my head feels hazy, and its hard to be productive. Really, I just want to put my head on my desk and have a nap.
So I’ll leave you with some pictures of my really lovely Mother’s Day weekend.
My mom got a little spoiled for Mother’s Day, we went out for lunch and she got some beautiful flowers. Pretty sure tulips are my new favorite.
My dad had his boat repainted since the last time I was home, now shes named after me. And that bad ass warrior on the front of the boat is supposed to be me.
So all in all it was a pretty good weekend. Pretty flowers, and pretty boats.
