My Mom Came to Visit

As most of you know by now, I took a little break from blogging last week because my Mom was visiting. She was here for a week, from last Monday until yesterday and we squished in a lot of fun together. I realized a little too late that we weren't that great at taking pictures of all our fun but we did do our best and I am here to show you what we did through photos.

We did four puzzles through out the week, since we made a pretty awesome team and puzzles are fun.

500 pieces

1,000 pieces

500 pieces

750 pieces
We had quite the set up going for some of them, since we had to spread out all the pieces. I thought it was a little funny how many tables we had going.

We also went shopping and bought a total of 23 books. Most of them were mine, I'm ashamed to say.

But really, I scored some awesome deals. And Mom bought some for me, so I didn't spend THAT much. At least that's what I keep telling myself.

We played cribbage and Settlers of Catan. Although we played Settlers like eight times and cribbage only once.

I won multiple times.

We also went to a ladies event at our church where the theme was backwards night. I went as Dan. Don't you think I looked awesome?

Okay, awesome and a little creepy. But it was tons of fun.

We went to the Farmer's Market and bought super delicious apples that were called Mutsu (I think) and we ate a bunch of them.

We ate yummy food, including stir fry twice, and mom reminded me that I owned chopsticks. I have lost my touch with them though and took forever to finish my bowl.

But don't you worry, now that I know I have some, I will work on my skills.

Other things we did were go for walks, watch movies, and some miscellaneous shopping. It was a really good week and I'm super happy that she came to visit me.

Thanks for understanding my need to take a bit of a break while she was here, but I am back now!


  1. I'm so glad that your mother was able to get away ... and made a point to do so. Great for both of you .... time together with new memories. Blogging will be back on track .... as it has been with this latest post. Thanks for update

  2. Sounds like a great week. So glad for you that you could spend this time together. We love making puzzles too. Our dining room table is covered with puzzle pieces right now. I really like the one you showed of the flowers (of course).

  3. Wow! You guys were definitely ambitious with the puzzles!

  4. Bunny - I had a great time with her. Especially since she hadn't visited since when she came with you back in 2011!

    Ellie - Dan won't let me do puzzles on our dining room table since I take too long, so we have to set up a separate table. The flowers one was beautiful but so hard!

    Jackie - I know! Mom kept pulling out more and more.

  5. Sounds like a great visit with your mom. I'm glad you got that time with her. :)

  6. Stasy - It was a great visit and it was special having a full week with her. It has been a while since that has happened.
