Calm Before the Storm

So, this weekend was one of those that makes you wonder if it's the calm before the storm!  Dude's Dude was out of town and I had a weekend of R&R (and shopping)!  We recently moved to a new house - and love it! - but it needed some flowers and such.  So I forgot to get a before and after of the back -- but here's the front
And I added these gorgeous flowers on the front porch - no idea what they are so don't even ask!

And my sweet mama, painted the flower boxes in the back AND planted the flowers!  I know I'm spoiled...and she's the best!!!

And, not only did my mom get my yard into shape, she also took this mom-to-be shopping.  I must have tried on every maternity dress in the metroplex trying to find a couple for several weddings we are attending in June.  No luck on any dresses, but I did get these cute tops for work (and play):

I must confess, this last one is way cuter than it looks here - especially with my new white jeans!  LOVE IT!

I also finished reading The Help which I highly recommend!  It's going to be a movie soon (this summer I heard?) so if you're interested in reading it before seeing it, you better get on it!  It was a great read and the perfect topper to a relaxing weeked. 

And, here's the dreaded self-portrait in poor i-phone quality.  Yes, I'm in PJs...again.  With no make-up on so I intentionally blocked my face.  And NO, I'm not so swollen that I can't wear my wedding ring.  It was 8:30 on a Saturday night my bedtime and I was cozy....  So, here I am in all my 20 week glory!
