We went to Oshkosh for brunch on Mother's Day.
When we walked into the lobby I saw these tiles on a wall
and I can't get them out of my head.
I need to call the hotel and see if they were sold
or are still available.
You know what it's like when you can't get an image
out of your head??

Oshkosh is a lovely little city on the state's biggest inland lake.
The hotel is on the Fox River which divides Oshkosh in half.

This is what I ate...
roasted veggies and cold shrimp.

This is what I didn't eat...
This is a pic of Boyd and I.
He is so sweet!
For Mother's Day he bought me all the books on my
Amazon wish list.
They are mostly art books.
I'll take a photo of titles whan they arrive.

Kristin... my first born.

Wendy... the bride-to-be.

Kristin, Wendy, and Darin

Boyd's 88 year old dad with Boyd and I.
He is not only 88 and has had a lot of health problems,
but he still delivers meals to the shut-ins
and volunteers at our air museum.

Boyd's dad with the girls.
I didn't get a photo of Boyd's mom, brother or aunt.

A good pic of the hotel, river, and lake in the background.
A drum roll, please...
Yesterday was weigh-in day and I lost...
2.8 lbs this week.
That's a total of 13.4 pounds!
Feelin' frisky!

I am so proud of you, my friend!!! Great pics.

I think that's the first REAL picture of Boyd that I've seen. Wonderful looking food, too.

All in all, it sounds like you had a phenomenal Mother's Day!

That is A LOT to celebrate, Joni! Beautiful daughters (can't see that scandihoovian heritage there, no sir), wonderful hubby, mother's day, weight loss, resisting dessert--good for you!!

You deserve the tiles. They last longer than cheesecake, anyway.

Those tiles are wonderful and I agree with artisbliss, you deserve them! You have a beautiful family, and I'm so happy you had a beautiful day as well!!!

Jacquie said...

What a lovely family! You go girl!!!

Kate said...

Well done, Joni! You're doing really well! Could you paint some tiles yourself at the pottery shop?? Just a thought. Yours'd be fab. xx

Joni, you are doing so well with your Jenny Craig program, I am very impressed.

What wonderful photos you've shared. I love them all and isn't Boyd a handsome fellow? His dad is cuts quite a fine figure, too, and I think it's an inspiration to all of us that he engages in such worthwhile endeavors. Your girls are beautiful and I'm so glad you had this time with them.

OH Joni! This is FABULOUS! Thank you for such a fun and sensational looking day full of wonderful photos and yummy's. A mother's day to remember.

awesome job on the ww. and yes, i know exactly how it feels to be fixated on something i wish i'd bought :)

for me, its a giant leather sectional from the pottery barn outlet that was marked down from 9,000 to 2,000. i realize it's a lot...but how can you beat that?
