Late Friday morning my mom & I headed out to run some errands. I needed to get stuff for bachelorette party invitations & she needed to get stuff for flower pots & gardens. Knowing that it was going to be in the 80s/90s I didn't even hesitate when getting picking out clothes. It had to be a dress. I actually own that dress in two different colors/patterns (beige & mint). After a bunch of deliberation on how I wanted the invitations to look, and how much work/money I wanted to put into them, I finally had the supplies I needed. We ran a couple of other errands & then chose Noodles & Company for lunch. We don't have Noodles in Texas so I hadn't been there forever. I got the same thing I always get, & actually the only thing I've ever had from there. The Pesto Cavatappi with grilled chicken. It is SO good. I'm sure the other pastas/salads/soups are good too but hey I know I'm in love with that one. After Noodles we ventured off to find flowers. Those two pictures are just a brief snapshot of all the flowers my mom bought. She always plants flowers but there's a family reunion at our house in July so she went flower crazy, & apparently still isn't done. When my brother got off work that night my mom, dad, & I met up with him at a newer Mexican place in town called Mi Terra. Because it's pretty much my favorite, I of course got barbacoa tacos. When barbacoa is an option, I get it. I also got a mango margarita. The food was really good. It was better than I was honestly expecting considering I live in a middle of nowhere Minnesota town.
Saturday was a productive day. My mom & I planted most of the flowers that she had bought the day before. We also spray painted a few pots to plant more flowers in later. We already have the plants for the yellow one, there are actually 2, but flowers still need to be picked out & purchased for the blue ones. That night we made a little bonfire & my brother came over so we could roast hot dogs & make smores.
I really don't know where Sunday went. I feel like I didn't really do a whole lot & yet the day flew by. I designed the bachelorette party invites & got them all set up so that tomorrow I can put them together & get them mailed out. For an hour or two we went to my grandparents' to visit & mow lawn. For supper that night my dad smoked & grilled some pork ribs & beef ribs. Like I said, I feel like nothing really happened & yet the day was over in a flash.
