cold, wet and wonderful!

Let me just say that the weather was just complete and utter crap all weekend. We barely spent an hour outside all weekend, but it was still great. Friday, Hubby and I met on the train and drove down to N Wildwood in the rain. Dinner at the Lobster House with champagne. Saturday, I got to sleep in past 8:30 (that never happens when B is around). We went out for breakfast, took our time getting ready and hit our favorite winery (not that we've been to the others in the area) for a tasting. After that we wandered the shopping district in Cape May and had a late lunch. Then a nap at the condo and a late dinner at JP Prime. We slept in again yesterday and had a late breakfast and tried to sit on the beach, but it was just too cold and windy. So we packed up and headed home after lunch. Dinner with M-i-L and F-i-L and B was great. B was so excited to see us. I got the best cuddles and hugs and kisses. B made me a cute little basket at school and Hubby bought me this:

Her name is Fabala, after the main character in Wicked (otherwise known as the Wicked Witch of the West). Mainly because they're both green and don't like water. I spent last night loading her up. The pink behind her is going to be a little drawstring case.
I have to say I only had very mild guilt about being away from B for most of Mother's Day and that started when Hubby said he felt bad that B wouldn't have his mom at church yesterday. Of course, yesterday was Pentecost so the birthday party for the church (red balloons and noise makers) made up for my not being there!
