And believe me, I can't say that about a lot of past Mother's Days :) Bless Brian's little heart... he sure is learning after almost 13 years :)
We started out with morning cuddles with our littlest one:
I kept reminding her that it was Mother's Day, which means it was Mommy's Special Day. Got to indoctrinate them while they are young :)
Then we all squished in Brian's car to go out for breakfast.
Jaina bought me the bottle cap necklace with the "J" on it from a girl that makes them at her middle school.
While we waited for a table, Jayce won me an owl at the Skill crane in the lobby.
Breakfast was awesome :)
Then we went home and chilled for a bit while Brian did all the grocery shopping himself. I hate going grocery shopping every week with three whiny kids, so this was quite a treat!
Then Brian took the kids to Chuck E. Cheese's while I went shopping all by myself. That almost never happens!
I tried on clothes at Old Navy for over an hour. I ended up with a new bathing suit, two new tops, and two new tanks. Thanks Brian!! :)
Jocelyn thinks Chuck E. Cheese's is just as good as Disney World, so she really likes this whole Mother's Day thing.
Then we hit Costco, where I picked out some flowers for myself, and then we headed for home.
My mom gifted me with another beautiful Willow Tree. This is the one thing I collect.
I also got a paper cutter because my two kids have somehow lost mine. Now I don't have to borrow my mom's anymore :)
For dinner, Brian grilled hot dogs so I basically got out of cooking the entire day. Score!
I thought middle schoolers didn't make their mommies crafts at school anymore, but Jaina's science teacher said they had to :) We love Mrs. Johnson!
It was a great Mother's Day :) I got to spend time with my family AND have some alone time. Perfect!
