How Was Your Mother's Day?

Mine was everything that I could have hoped for. I woke up to the wonderful smells of breakfast cooking. Brad & Kyla made some of my favorites...Corned Beef Hash, Eggs, Bacon, and Pancakes. (I am such a lucky lady because not only does Brad know how to cook, but he also enjoys it.)

After church, we had the whole family over for Brunch. There was Sushi, Boiled Shrimp, Greek Salads, Lemonade, Sweet Tea, and Margaritas. Then all the men cleaned up and watched the kids play while the moms chatted, read books, or napped. It was heavenly.

Around 5pm, it was time for cards and gift. My girls were listening to me because they gave me a reusable insulated water bottle...and my husband is sending me to my favorite Salon and Spa for some pampering...Manicure, Pedicure, Hair Color & Cut. I tell you, I was spoiled.

Because of all the food that we ate for Brunch, no one was really in the mood for a big dinner, so it was off to the local ice cream place for everyone. Bryleigh had a blast eating her first ice cream cone all by herself. As soon as my father-in-law sends me the photos, I'll post them. Looks like she is a mint chocolate chip girl...

We finished off the evening watching the finales for The Amazing Race and Celebrity Apprentice. I really wanted Luke and his mom to win, but Victor and his sister were my second choices. As for Celebrity Apprentice, all I can say is that although Joan can be a diva, I was glad she won. Something about Annie just rubbed me the wrong way. Did not like her at all.

Now I am listing to the silence in my totally trashed house. Looks like I have my day cut out for me tomorrow.

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. Let me know how your families spoiled and pampered you...and if you get the chance, go over to Lazy Moms and try to win the slotRadio MP3 player that they are giving away. If I win it, guess what Brad is getting for Father's Day...

I woke up to a pancake breakfast courtesy of my hubby and got several adorable homemade gifts from my boys.

Thanks for participating in the party! It sounds like you had a great Mother's Day. Isn't it great when they actually listen to the answer when they ask what we want? Hope you have a great week!
