Treats With My Sweets

Yesterday i was a 'weee bit' naughty and bought myself a gorgeous old 2 seater sofa for the front porch. You know when you see something that just calls your name (shannon, shannon, like a fog horn...)....(cmon we've ALL been there MANY times)..but you know deep down that you really shouldnt buy it...Where will you put it? Will you have to eat 2 minute noodles all week just to pay for it??
YES i too pondered these questions when i spotted THE SOFA !
But i NEEDED it. I mean REALLY NEEDED IT. As bad as i NEED chocolate (im not kidding).
And then the sales lady said it was only $30. Well HELLLOOOOOO...COME TO MAMA sweet sofa i said.

And so it did.
And a new love has developed....

And this afternoon the sofa was delivered so i thought what better way to celebrate than to have afternoon tea on it with Sam when he got home from pre school.
I bought him a little celebration prezzie too and wrapped it. My Joy is his joy afterall :)

But first i had to get dads cat off the sofa (no Logan thats not your new bed darling).
You see it??? You see my sofa?? Aww isnt she just lovely !

Some yummy cakes and a drink waiting for my boy and I.

Opening the prezzie ......i looooove giving prezzies.

TOY STORY #2. Apparantly i am a 'really good' mum , LOL.

'Let them eat cake'

Time to bring out the throw blanket, it was getting kind of chilly.

I love my little man. He's so funny and witty and he's my best little buddy.
I love that we can just cuddle up and read a book together and giggle....thats what its all about. I love being his mum.

Thanks for taking a trip down 'mushyville' with me . LOL.

Big Hugs,

Shannon what a great addition to your front porch.
Sam is such a sweetheart who wouldn't want to share afternoon tea and treats with him

What a lovely blog! So many pretties! Love the pic of you and your son. I'm glad you brought home the sofa... you really DID need it! ; )


And just how are you gonna keep Logy off the sofa? Also, did you guys keep me a cupcake?

The sofa is a great buy!!! I think a little cake break is perfect to welcome it to your home.
So you and I are partners....How did I get so lucky? I will send you my info. via e-mail.
You are a very sweet MUM!

Dolly said...

$30! What a deal!! Well, of course you HAD to have it!
My goodness, little Sam is turning into such a little man!

Linda said...

Hi Shann,
You had to take that sofa home I can't believe that it was only $30! I also love having special afternoon teas with my boys, if we have the time after school before they go to their various sports. Our favourite was always hot chips at the park then some time on the swings. Although my oldest is getting to old for that now.
Cheers Linda

Where did you find something as gorgeous as that lounge around here? It looks like a perfect place to read too :-)


Hiya Sharon ! It was up at St Vinnies in Cox Avenue in Penrith. They know me by name there now!

And yep, a great reading spot :)

GardenGoose said...

aww how sweet...and a bit mushy too...but what the hey..the sofa is pretty and a good find and I'd get all mushy with a sweet little darling guy like that too(after all we moms adore our babies)..I can tell he's got his mama wrapped around his little finger.
hope you have a lovely week.

I've definitely gotten the same calling from furniture, usually at high end antique stores. This one looks like it knew your name right off the bat. What a great sofa; looks so cozy!

Hi dear Shann,
Such very precious pictures of you and Sam! I love to remember times like this that I spent with my boys when they were little. My youngest son Jeff is now 25 years old, I can hardly believe it!

Your sofa is so very pretty and it is the perfect place to cuddle up with your sweet little Sam!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog~
Love & Hugs,
Carol Anne

Awwwwww ~smiles~
Shann... how sweet to walk down "mushyville" with you! Your son is one fine-looking young man! Your love for each other shines through and it's such a joy.

I am lovin' your "new" sofa so much... and the price just makes it even better! I'm so happy for you and your son... cuddlin' and snugglin' on your porch!

You were such a sweetheart, Shann, to leave such kind and moving comments for me... thank you ~hug~ Also, many thanks for the prayers for Cat, and for me. We can always use prayers... they really do help.

I was so sad to learn of your loss, too. I have no doubts of your struggles, Shann ~sigh~ Please accept my prayers; and I'll be asking God to direct your angel~friend towards my Mom's soft cloud for love and snuggles. I know that soon God will wrap you up in Peace, as well. ~gentle hug~

Hi Shann,
I love your new sofa - so how are those two minute noodles? Gosh, I know exactly what you mean about something calling my name - voices from all around - buy me, buy me! You made a great selection and it looks so cozy.

That picture of you and Sam is precious. Oh, can I come by and have some of those goodies, they look delicious and sit on the sofa for a while with Logan?

Happy day!

You had to have the couch! We all agree, it is adorable, wow, what a great find. Kiss your little guy! My guys are 19, and 20 and still love to sit on my lap! Not for long though, they grow up quick, enjoy your couch and your little guy, you deserve it!
