A Lovely Mother's Day

I had a nice relaxing day, beginning with a shower of handmade gifts in bed. I got pictures and cards and recipe books. I even got a letter from my 7 year old stating "Even after I move out, you will always have a place in my heart." Puzzling and sweet.

Breakfast was cooked, served, and cleaned up by my husband. (The double breakfast meat is a guy thing, but I was willing to go for it.) I requested NO breakfast in bed this year since I think it's awkward and lonely up there by myself and they obliged.

Next, they put on my favorite movie and gave me a much-needed Spongebob break. Romantic comedy always tops my list and I laughed and cried my way through 50 First Dates.

Thank you, family, I love you.

Now, on to my CAbi party! I had lots of food and drinks...


Mini cupcakes (mocha, lemon, chocolate/peanut butter, vanilla, red velvet)
Deviled eggs
Pistachio'd grapes
Veggies and Dip
Sliced pineapple
Chocolate covered grapes
Orange/Pineapple Mimosas

I bought some great outfits:

And, I got to hang out with some of my best friends, without any kids or husbands around! They were banned to the baseball field and later upstairs while we all ate, drank, and tried on clothes. If we had suddenly started doing each other's hair and make-up, I would have sworn I was at a slumber party!

So, all in all, turning 29 (again) wasn't half bad. Thanks for all the birthday and Mother's Day wishes. I hope you, too, had a lovely weekend.


  1. hooray for the pictures! I knew it was going to be really good stuff!

    LOVE the outfits you picked & am really happy to know that you were treated to such a wonderful mom's day & 29th Again birthday!

    Here's to another amazing 29th year!

  2. Hi I found you on Bloggedy Blog blog with Saucy.

    I am curious...what is pistachio'd grapes? Are you stuffing grapes with the nuts?

  3. Happy Birthday and Happy Mother's Day to you! The menu looks delish!

  4. Happy Birthday! Again with the grapes! I can't wait to try them! I'm still looking for a party...how sad for me!

  5. I'm glad you had a nice Mother's Day. And hey, if I'm not mistaken, you had a birthday in there too, right? If so, Happy Belated!
