Mom comes to visit

This weekend we got the pleasure of having our first house guest! Mom came down to see us Friday night and left Saturday afternoon. It was such a blessing to spend Friday evening with my mom and my husband, then do what mom and I do best (shop and eat) on Saturday morning.

Our first stop was an adorable shop in Republic that my mom’s dear friend Carrie owns, Minden Place Antiques. This candle makes me so excited for fall!

I’m a sucker for cheesy sayings.

This shop is ready for fall! I’m looking forward to that chilly fall weather.

It was so difficult to leave without taking this little guy with me.

After chatting with Carrie and her mom, we made our way back to Springfield for lunch. I’ve been itching to try the Aviary Cafe and Creperie and I thought it would be the perfect place to take mom. Of course, it was adorable. Totally in love. Like, how cute is this:

I could have taken a million pictures of this place (especially the bathroom), but it was pretty crowded so I thought that might make for some awkward encounters.

The umbrellas! So neat.

The mashed potatoes are to die for. I’d definitely recommend them.

It was such a blessing to have mom here this weekend. I’m so lucky to have a best friend in my mom. I wish she was here to go antique-ing with me more often! Love you mama :)
