Mother's Day

Ahh yes, it's Mother's Day again.  Happy Mother's Day to all you lovely mommy bloggers out there!  Last year I was a mommy to be, my hubby got me a sweet card, but we didn't do anything to really celebrate.  This year, however, I deserve a little celebration!

My Mother's Day has been ongoing really, it started out with a 1hour massage thanks to my very own Momma.  It was soo nice and relaxing.  I could do that every week if they weren't soo pricey!  Such a treat. My mom and I are also planning to buy Emily Giffin's newest book to share which comes out on May 11th.  Then to top off our gifts to each other we are going to see Sex And the City 2 in theaters when it comes out at the end of the month.  It's soo nice when my mom and I can just spend some time together and enjoy it without distraction.  Not to mention none of the boys would go to the movie with us even if we wanted them to.  We learned our lesson about taking them to chick flicks last year!

My mother in law {or mother-in-love as I like to call her} went way above and beyond for me this year.  I did not expect anything, I mean I knew she'd get me something, but figured it might be a card and something from Lane Bryant.  She introduced me to shopping there after Aiden was born and their clothes have really helped me get through post baby weight trouble.  But NO... she went and spent WAYY more than she should have on me and got me a new Coach purse!  That's right ladies - be jealous.  It's beautiful.  I told her she shouldn't have, and felt horrible accepting it because I know she probably put it on a credit card and well, I just felt guilty.  However, when someone offers you a Coach purse you DO NOT say no.  You love it and enjoy it.  I hadn't bought myself a Coach purse in 3 years, I have just been rotating my 3 every so often.  Now I will carry a new one, for probably way longer than I should.  :)  I got the purse pictured below, the khaki poppy.  It's got that purple silk on the inside too.  It's the perfect size for me too - my phone and flip video camera fit perfect in the front pockets!
To top it off my husband and son are soo very wonderful to me.  Kris took Aiden out shopping to get me just what I really wanted - a new bath pillow {not some cheap one that deflates or doesn't stay put either!}.  They too spoiled me.  He came home with a 3 sectioned 2 inch thick foam bath pillow.  Oh it's soo cozy, seriously, awesome.  He also let Aiden pick out a bath caddy to fit on the tub.  It holds my book open, a glass of wine and a candle.  My bath that night was an hour long ladies... it was great.  He also bought a double headed shower head.  We didn't really NEED this, but oh my it's such a treat.  The second shower head comes off so we can use it to rinse Aiden off in the tub or I can use it to clean the shower walls easier! 


All in all I have had a great Mother's Day.  I am writing this on Saturday night, so I imagine I will get to sleep in tomorrow and will get french toast and coffee in bed from my hubby.  He usually does that for me for my birthday and such.  Very sweet man he is.  I also can imagine that I will be told to just relax and read a book and enjoy the day.  If anything really special happens I'll be sure to update. 
{EDIT}  Okay so I got a handmade card with my morning breakfast.  Aiden even had ink on him.  He came in and took a nap in bed with me, something he hasn't done in months.  Kris let me do nothing all day and it was very relaxing.  I even went to the hot tub for a bit with my own momma.  Can't beat that.

I looove Emily Griffin - well except her last book wasn't so awesome - but I didn't know she had a new book coming out! So excited to read it!

And Happy Mothers Day (late)! It looks like you had an awesome weekend!

I LOVE EMily Griffin! LOVED all her books and I totally forgot about the new one. I will wait a week and then buy it used on Amazon! :)
Happy MOther's day and YOU really made me want to take a bath! I whined and whined about how the house we lived in before we bought our house only had a shower and no tub! Now, i have 2 tubs and have been in the house for a year, and have YET to take a bath! I need to get on that.
