Mums the word!

I had such a great weekend.  On Friday as soon as Rhiannon got out of school I packed up the car and went to visit this beautiful soul right here.....

This woman is so wonderful!  The trip was to short but just what I needed to get my head on straight again.

Before I came home we made a quick trip to a local nursery to get the biggest cheapest and most beautiful mums ever!  They are so lush and full I could only fit three in my car.  (Mind you I also had a baby, tween and puppy.  It was a quite a full car.  best part?  They were only $3!!!!!!!!!)

After I got them in the ground it became extremely clear that I needed. more.  

Reluctantly, I went to the home depot to try and find more.  (I was only reluctant to do this because I knew they wouldn't be nearly as big or beautiful as the ones I purchased at the nursery.  I also knew they were going to be ridiculously overpriced.)

I was correct in that assumption.

Where I could only fit three of the nursery's mums in my car I could easily put 8 in the good old radio flyer.  

But I "needed" them, so I sucked it up.

The baby "helped" me plant.  (AKA putting the dirt in the wagon.)  Then the Mister caught her picking all the flowers off.  (Little stinker!)

Here she is getting an explanation on why it is NOT OKAY to pick mommy's flowers!

Buehrle even helped me out by taking the trash and scattering it all over the yard!  

(However, he has been VERY good about staying OUT of my flower beds.)

I think the best part of the weekend was finally getting our engagement photos back late last night!  They are amazing!  I couldn't be happier with the photographer we chose!  

If you, or anyone you know is getting married in the chicago area I highly recommend her!  

I hope everybody has an amazing week!
