I had big plans to post about my daughter’s 19th Birthday. Her LAST teenage year. Her beginning as a mom…..
Fail….Her birthday was May 6th. Luckily, I took a photo.
My next big blog plan was to post about Mother’s Day. I wanted to be all weepy as my daughter is becoming a mother and I am her mother. How I drove to Oklahoma for the day to see MY MOM. Then, spent Sunday with my other mom, Jason’s Mom. And of course to end it with photos of Sydney and me. I handed my camera to Hubby and had him photograph us for her weekly pregnancy photos AND Mother’s Day.
It was sweet.
But it never got posted.
I, also, did not post about my photography groups’ first reception at the Arlington Museum of Art. We had veggies, fruit, cheese, and crackers. Not nearly enough wine…like only an hour’s worth.
I bought this beautiful bouquet from Central Market. We put some of the flowers in little lens cup holders and set them on the table.
It was so incredibly cute. Of course, after the reception I took them home and enjoyed them another week. I think pink gerbers are my very favorite. Now, we have had our second reception. It was not near as crowded as the first, but lots of fun. Did I mention how beautiful all the photographs on the wall are?
How about how I failed at Spring? You know….the season of beautiful blooms. A nature photographer’s haven. Well, I took them. I took TONS of photos at my Momma Sue’s beautiful spring yard on Easter Sunday (I took some of the kids too – heh).
Her hyacinth bloom. A new edition to her potted plant collection.
Her gorgeous wisteria. A yearly favorite as they are always gorgeous and wisty.
The incredible clover. A favorite of the bees every year, and who knew clover was so pretty!
And most importantly, a BLUE BIRD!
I love blue birds.
And this is what I meant to show you on my blog…..but didn’t.
My last blog miss is from my staycation at the end of March. That’s right. I took a whole week and stayed at home….sort of….I kinda went to Oklahoma for my Mom’s birthday and I made lots of other plans and lunches too.
My stay at home week ended up being a busy one, but super fun. And over wayyyyy too fast.
But one of the things I did on my vacation was go to the Fort Worth Zoo. A favorite place of mine. I happened to catch this little Road Runner at feeding time. I must say I have never seen a bird SO proud of his dinner “catch” in my whole life. He pranced around and around to every window showing off his find and shaking his tail feathers.
I’m sure many will think it gross, but I thought it was so funny. Not to mention, he is a beautiful bird, with or without mice in his beak.
That’s all for now. Stay tuned for the second part of How I failed my blog…..
It may include…anniversaries….and more zoo photos.
