Monday: Pick-Me-Up

So hubs got sick last week... I worked four 12hr days... add that to being around him/taking care of him and doing all the chores/errands while he was sick=

I now have his cold.
I'm so glad I have today off work...

But I did enjoyed my weekend... went to a friend's bridal shower and came home with these pretties :I know a lot of people that don't like carnations, they think they are cheap, a lame substitute for roses, or just really hate them because in high school they never got handed one on Valentine's day. *Newsflash: it was high-school, get over it! I never got them either, and look at me now... married to a hot marine who is more of a man than most of the guys I knew in high school will ever be.

But I think they are pretty.

"What is delicate, durable, and delightful all in one? The carnation, scientifically known as Dianthus caryophyllus, is a historically rich and meaningful flower choice. With its scientific name dianthus roughly translating to "flower of love" or "flower of the gods", depending on the source, this flower is one that has been revered for centuries."

Read all the history here.

As icky as I feel today,
Eating my breakfast with
these flowers on the table
made me feel just a bit better.


  1. I think carnations are gorgeous! Feel better!

  2. my church always has a bucket of carnations at the pulpit on mothers day, and at the end of the sermon all the kids are supposed to go up and get one for their mothers! so i have always looked at them as something so desirable and couldnt wait for my turn! of course this year... when finally it was my turn to get one in church. they didnt do it! gaaaaaaahh (i guess cause our church has over 400 people per service now haha)

  3. Flowers always brighten my mood, regardless of what kind!! And honestly roses are getting old, people! Maybe it's just me, but they just seem boring and overdone. Oh yes, still lovely, but not my #1!!


I love hearing from you all! =)
