Monday Mugs: Mother's Day

How was your Mother's Day? I hope it was wonderful. I had a great weekend and decided a great way to recap it would be by liking up with Oswald Cuties Monday Mugs as the theme for today is Mother. --Today Monday Mugs is being hosted by Kim From Pair Slices-another blog I love.

My Mother's Day celebration began last week when I enjoyed a Mommy and Child tea party with Alex at her preschool.
Followed up on Friday by an adorable program Lucas' class put on. They sang "You are My Sunshine" and Skidamarinki-dinki-dink (how in the world do you spell that??) and gave us their presents they had made, including their hand print on a tile.
Saturday I got my mother's day wish and had an awesome afternoon out with my BFF CA Girl. We hit four different stores and went out to dinner at Mimi's Cafe where we both ate way too much-- too much to even have room for desert! We had lots of good laughs, showed appreciation for our meal-french style, and there may have even been an accidental partial moon in the dressing room.

I ended up with two skirts, two shirts, work out pants and a shirt (needed it after our dinner!), and two pair of shoes! Oh and Ryder's birthday present, since we were right by Toys R Us-which is this Saturday!! How is he going to be 1 already??

And here is one of the outfits
skirt-$1.68, shirt $14.40, shoes-ones I already owned.

And when I got back from shopping-Lucas and Alex were both in the shower, the house was all clean and there was a mother's day sign, flowers, and homemade cards from the kids waiting for me!
Then on Sunday Eric made breakfast-Egg and a Hats, lunch and dinner!

Lunch was chicken nuggets for the kids and a tray of sushi I had bought the day before for the grownups.
Dinner was pork chops, rice, garlic bread, pears and blueberry cake for desert.

It was a wonderful Mother's Day-weekend (the way I think it just might have to be from now on-hehe)

Hope you had a great weekend too!

***** And tomorrow is the second Tuesday of the Month--that means Time for the Status Quote!! So copy those funny/weird Facebook Status for an easy and fun post and come back and link up.
