it was BEAUTIFUL yesterday!
i mean... BeAuTiFuL...
ice cream sandwiches for our bellies...
flippity flops on our feet...
sunscreen on our noses...
wind in our hair...
dirt under our nails!


after the gym little bit & i stopped by a REALLY fun garden shop for some COLOR!
not only did i find what i want for Mother's Day... oh yes i DID...
and already called the hubby... oh yes i DID... 
but we had fun just walking about the rows of  splendor!
i could purchase dainty... fluffy flowers til the cows come home!
they are HAPPPINESS! 


as we were singing & digging... having a ball...
i went to pick up a really large pot...
when a foot away from me popped out a SNAKE!
a BIG snake...
with the top part of it's scaly body springing up to see me...
probably a mama with babies she wants to protect... :)...


and i don't know what was funnier...
how high i jumped & how loud i squealed
OR
the fact that i bolted as fast as i could for the camera!
DARN thing slithered away...
shoot...
NOW...
we have a pet snake in our BACK yard!   
what!!!!!!
that thing...
ugh...
it better slither away from here...
cause i'm also a mama with babies to protect!  :) 
RIGHT...
like WHAT would i do...
take it's picture & yell for somebody ELSE to catch it!
