Happy belated Mother's Day to all the mom's out there :) I hope you were able to celebrate however you wished!
As for this family, we kept it low-key. I had to fly out for business last night - so that made for a day of packing etc. And that was okay. Ali had a hockey tournament all weekend and on Sunday she didn't have any games. So that left us with me being the only restriction (my travel) . .well, I did have to pack yet.
So what did we actually do? As much as I would have loved to have had Grandma and Grandpa over and celebrate with a grand dessert - instead we kept it just to us (Hubby, myself and the kiddos). It was my choice on where to go to for breakfast - and I chose Denny's. I do have a hankerin' for diners . .. and Denny's is fairly close to home and usually has no waiting (which is an important thing when you have a toddler).
And thus we celebrated over breakfast. .. .I enjoyed the bacon-maple milkshake along with a bacon cheeseburger that had a fried egg on it. Hey, no where did it say that I had to order breakfast food . . .and besides, my hamburger did have bacon and egg on it! And it was delicious . . yum!!
As well, I received some sweet new hockey bling in the form of earrings! They are gold and say "hockey mom". Pretty awesome stuff! I do love jewelry :)
Here is a photo .. .not too glamorous, but here is me and the kiddos:
And then before you knew it, I was packed and kissing my family goodbye at the airport. But I did have a very sweet surprise waiting for me in more hotel room:
Thank you to my hubby for not only the chocolates, but for always encouraging me and supporting my general craziness. And an equally as big thank you to the kiddos - they are the greatest :)
