I hope you all had a great weekend, I'm running a little behind this week already! If you're not a mom yet then I hope you had fun celebrating your own mom, mother-in-law, or mother figure in your life. Now that I am a mom myself I appreciate all mothers, especially my own and my mother-in-law (who had 5 boys!!), so much more. Being a mom is the best and hardest job I have ever had. Words cannot even explain how thankful I am on a daily basis that I have the opportunity to be a mom.
My first Mother's Day weekend was wonderful. Kyle had to travel to Detroit for the day on Saturday so he took Friday off so we didn't feel like we were losing a weekend day. My boys did such a great job making me feel special and celebrating me all weekend long.
My Mother's Day started on Thursday with Kyle coming home early (before 8pm!!) and cooking dinner for us...
On Friday morning I got a much needed pedicure. It was amazing to sit there with nothing to do and have someone rub my feet. I also got to catch up on magazines I've had sitting around.
We then headed to downtown Annapolis to eat some Mexican food and shop. It was a little cooler than expected but we still had a great time.
My new rug from RugsUSA came on Thursday night and we got it set up on Friday. So far I'm really liking it. I hadn't planned to go this dark but with a dog and baby it makes sense right now. Plus I was able to nab it for 55% off so that works for me :)
Anything to get a couple of minutes to wash dishes
There was screaming and barking going on in this picture
I heard some banging the other morning and then I loud thud so I ran into Miller's room to find this. When I got in there he had this hands on the elephant picture but scooted over to the other side of the crib when he saw me. When I asked where the picture went he looked back for a few mintues- it was pretty hysterical. It was like he was trying to tell me he wanted to redecorate. Thankfully he dropped the picture behind his crib and not on his head.
Sunday was a picture perfect day as far as weather goes and an even better first Mother's Day. I got to sleep in until 7am and was treated to donuts and iced coffee. After a long family walk we then headed down to my parents house and the spent the afternoon laying by the pool. We finished it with dinner at my parents where we got to celebrate my Mom and Grandma too so it was extra special.
My Mother's Day gift was this blouse. It's my first Lilly Pulitzer Elsa Top and I have to say I'm in love. The quality is great and I love the way it hangs on me. Plus it's long which is always a plus for this tall girl.
Here it is in brighter lighting
My handsome little man checking out the pond.
Trying to escape off the deck
My mom snapped this picture with my phone when I was wasn't looking and it's my favorite. Words cannot even express how lucky I feel to be this little boy's mama. Even when he's being wild and crazy or cranky and stubborn he's still the best little person in the world.
