Inspire Me Monday + Mom’s Day Adventures

Welcome to Inspire Me Monday Linky Party! I hope you have a weekend as wonderful as I did! This past Mother’s Day weekend I did something I rarely ever do, because the sheer thought of doing it sends my heart into anxiety driven palpitations….

I unplugged! Yep, no Facebook, no Twitter, no Google +, no Pinterest (gasp!)… nada. Yes, I did one Instagram, but that’s it. Thankfully I have the capability to pre-schedule all social media posts (except Instragram). I can not tell you how freeing it was! Ok, don’t get me wrong, I love you all, but sometimes a girl just needs to let go of the cyber world and live in the REAL WORLD for a bit.

My 4 kiddos, hubs, and I spent the gorgeous, warm (85º +) and sunny weekend boating, skiing, swimming and exploring the multitude of waterways we have her in southeast coastal Virginia.

Put it this way…. this was my view for most of Saturday and Sunday! (Note to self: time for a pedicure…)

I packed gourmet picnic lunches each day to make the holiday weekend a bit more special. The water is still a tad bit cool for me (I like it 80+), but the kids are little fishes! My kids headed to the swim platform of our boat and just as they were ready to jump in to take a dip, THIS GUY SLITHERED BY!!!! Mr. Water Moccasin (deadly venomous, aggressive and completely native to our area).

EEEEK! Let’s just say the desire to swim in that area was put on hold for a few hours. But regardless of the snake, the quality time spent “trapped” on our boat with my four kids is something I would never give up! I am a very blessed mama! Happy Mother’s Day to all you mama’s out there!

Enough about me! It’s time to show me what YOU have been up to! In case you missed any of last week’s features, be sure to check them out here:

  1. What a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend you had. A picture I took yesterday looked very similar to yours except your pedicure looks better than mine. That’s definitely on my list of things to do. If I saw a snake like you saw, there’s no way I’d ever get in the water. Blah!

  2. Ahh, looks so relaxing…well except for the snake! Thanks again for hosting!

  3. Thanks so much for the party!

  4. What an amazing Mother’s Day weekend! I enjoyed mine with my family right in the backyard. Sure wish we were closer to some water! Life to the full! Melissa

  5. Looks like a ton of fun! We are going to hit the low 90’s by mid week so I’m thinking we need to hit the lake too – although that snake would keep me out of the water. We have cougars, coyotes etc… that can wander through our yard at any given moment so I guess it is all about the regional “predators” and what you are used to. But still… 🙂

  6. Okay, so I’ve got the spankin new pedicure, but I did not have that view this weekend. I think you win! Thanks again for featuring my umbrella planter. Glad to see you had a lovely Mother’s day! XO

  7. Looks like you had a fabulous Mother’s Day. Thanks so much for hosting. 🙂
