Mother's Day Recap

Yesterday was a fantastic day-- full of food, family and some fun surprises.

Rob got up with Liam in the morning so that I could sleep in & made a run to Starbucks to bring me back a treat!

I went to brunch with my boys and my family and Liam was so excited to give Marmi (my mom) this mug that he made for her with his footprint! She loved it, of course.

I got a lovely surprise in a little blue box from Rob & Liam:

And an adorable baby carriage charm from my parents:

I got to spend some time with my brother and soon-to-be SIL (!!! There hasn't been an official proposal yet, but they are already starting to plan the wedding for next May. It's coming!) who came down from Nashville for the weekend. (And who also gave me a card and a Starbucks gift card. So sweet!)

L to R: My brother Eric, his fiancee Sandy, my mom, my dad, me, Liam & Rob.

After brunch, we brought Liam home for a nap & Rob stayed with him so that I could run out and get some flowers for our porch. It was so nice to be able to pick out what I wanted without having to bring Liam along!

And that, was my first official Mother's Day!

It was a wonderful day, but I had so many ladies on my mind... ladies that I knew weren't spending this day the way they dream they one day will. To all of you still waiting for your babies, Iam hoping that this is the last Mother's Day you'll spend with your children in your hearts instead of your arms. I know how lucky I am... more than once I looked at Liam and said, " I love you so much. Thank you for making me a mom."


  1. I love the earrings!! Rob has excellent taste.

    It sounds like a lovely day. Especially being able to pick out those lovely flowers without distraction.

  2. awwh, happy mother's day to you!!!! next year will be even better! sounds like a special day indeed.

    loved the part of the recap where you mentioned your brother and future SIL arent really engaged but are planning the wedding. i can totally relate!!!!!!! it was weird telling people i had my dress, the invites, etc etc etc, and then have them look at my ring finger and see ZILCH. and that was 4 months before the wedding! we had been together 5 years by that point and the wedding month just kept creeping closer and closer without nick realizing it! lol. ;)

  3. Looks like a great 1st Mother's Day! I love the footprint mug! May be getting one of those myself ;O)

  4. What a nice day! I'm so glad you had such special times with all your loved ones.

  5. cute earrings!!!!!! <3 love ya!

  6. Glad you had a good mother's day- you deserve it! I found all my footprint pics- if your husband is a golfer I have an adorable golf course plate idea for father's day :)
