Yesterday was the perfect kind of day.
It started out with breakfast at Der Dutchmans- to celebrate mom`s Mother`s Day.
Btw, the Der Dutch buffet is so good. The french toast and baked oatmeal with rhubarb yogurt was to DIE FOR. And I`m not just saying that because I work there.
We decided to “hit” a few antique malls. We went to the one in Walnut Creek (best prices) and the one across from Hiland High School (best selection).
The key at both places is to stay on the porch. They have the best stuff out on the porch.
I bought a cute birdhouse $6, a short fat tin pail (for weeds) $6, a cool vintage postcard $1, and these birds $2 (below).
You might say “ugly”, yes, you may.
I painted mine white- shocker, I know. And I have to say they look pretty cute-o.
Inspiration (above) came from Tracey @ French Larkspur.
My current favorite blog.
Here is Julana looking darling with her green jacket and baby bump.
Three cheers for baby Yoder #3 on the way. 🙂
Anyways- the day was colder than COLD! It was awful we needed winter coats so bad. Oh, and it was raining lots.
Not your pretty kind of day.
So we went to Java Jos Coffee Bar in Berlin.
It was so warm and cozy in there.
Plus, the lighting was so nice. Mmmm…
I couldn`t stop snapping pics- the lighting was so perfect.
^^My other sister, Joy and my baby, Laila.
Mom had to leave after the one antique mall so I never got her on any pictures. Sad.
Happy Mom`s Day anyways. Love ya!
Laila is all “over in ice cream dreamland”.
“Here let me help you, baby.”
Rainy days call for CUTE KID`S RAIN BOOTS.
They make me smile. 🙂
Julana, Joy and I- the married sisters.
I love being with my sisters.
We all talk super loud, it`s always humbling but fun.

“I love you Isaac!”
Elle dream is to get a cone at Java Jos.
Every time we drive by that place, she asks if we can stop for a cone.
It was so fun to tell her “YES!” this time, when she (sure enough), asked.
I loved telling her GRACIE will be there too. She was thri-il-led.
The kidders and I.
Today I am just at home (I like that lots too)- so I am doing mundane stuff- painting a room, doing laundry, changing bed sheets, and managing girls and their constant girlie squealing.
