A Rose by Any Other Name

I got flowers! I was so surprised. I was on the phone with my mom when someone knocked on my door in the middle of the day. I'm thinking it's some solicitor. Nope, it's flowers for me! I thought it was a mistake. Nope, my sister and my mom had sent me flowers for all my hard work with the gym and the weight loss. How sweet is that?!

UPDATE: Condider this my photo scavenger hunt post as well. :) It's perfect for the theme.



And here's a closeup

They must've smelled really good, because Pooh kept trying to get at them, so I put them on the floor so he could investigate. I think he thought that they were his, because he wasn't happy when I tried to take them away.


And this is cute, I don't care who you are!

That's so nice of your family! And that last picture of Mr Pooh bear could go on Cute Overload!

Flowers?!!! How neat is that?!!! What an awesome way to show how much support you're getting from your mother and sister!

Oh and the two pics of Pooh is just darling. (I love 'em both---where he's showing off his belly is just adorable)

Ummmmmmmmmmm, ya-a!!!! That Brad Paisley is hot, isn't he?!!! Eye candy and sweet voice too. *fanning myself* "Is it hot in here?"

Such pretty flowers!! I can imagine how wonderful they smell on this side of the screen!!

Great job on all your hard work. Keep it up!! You'll be string bikini ready in time for summer! :)

Renee said...

That last picture of Pooh is adorable! I'll have to show DD as she is a big Pooh fan (yep, your Pooh)

re Tampoon: that's what my friend's DD called them when she was reading the book. Neither girl wants to try them.

Oh, flowers for you! they are wonderful (you seem to have a wonderful family!). Pretty flowers, but your cat is the cutest!

Kukka-Maria said...

Oh. My. Gawd!

Pooh is so freakin' cut lying by those flowers. My own cuteness is feeling a little bit threatened. I guess I'll have to up my adorable factor the next time the camera is out.

I think I would consider dating him (if he would pledge his undying devotion and love to me).

Janet said...

That IS cute! Very nice flowers and very nice mom & sis ;-)

Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

I was going to comment on how beautiful the flowers were in the 2nd picture, but then when I saw that Pooh had jumped in there. Well, he just made it even more pretty, furry & cute.

Congrats again on all your hard work!

I remember awhile back you posted about going to a singles dinner thing. Was that speed dating? I'm going speed dating next week.

Bone said...

Congrats on the flowers, and the weight loss.

I should do more thoughtful things for people. Oh well.

It's hard for me to keep flowers around the house because my cats will eat them and get sick.

Beautiful flowers!

YOU HAVE SUCH A COOL MOM! Sheesh, I'd have to send MYSELF flowers! And yes, that flower/cat pic is VERY cute. What a ham you have there. ;)

Cindy said...

I love the one with Pooh laying beside the flowers and looking up. Makes me think of my Ricky with Valentine's roses. He thought they were to eat. I have a picture of him nibbling on them somewhere.

My cat would have eaten those flowers as soon as I turned my back on him. Pretty kitty!

What pretty flowers. What a cute picture of your cat. To funny that he decided he owned them. I love the story with the pictures. Nice hunt contribution and congratulations on the weight loss.

Amy said...

What a wonderful mother and sister! I need to get back to the gym to prepare for the wedding but it's hard to have the motivation to step foot back in there after so long being away. I applaud you! And that pooh bear just seems to be everywhere :-)

Katherine said...

Awww, that last pic of "Pooh and Flowers" is too precious! Animals rock. So glad you got unexpected flowers - that's the best!
