Top Ten Things I Loved About Mother's Day

top-ten-tuesday Happy Very Belated Mother’s Day. I hope you had a good one. Whether you are a mom yourself, I hope you enjoyed time with family. I had a fantastic day which I thought I would recap for you “Top Ten” style.

  1. Starting the party the night before. Well party might be too strong of a word. Since I fell asleep at 8:30 pm. So, so sad. I would blame pregnancy, but I sometime do that when I ain’t preggo. But that sure is nice when it happens on Mother’s Day eve and your family lets you sleep in. 11 hours of sleep baby!!
  2. Being greeted in the morning by two little girls and breakfast in bed. They were so excited to serve it to me, it was priceless.
  3. Immediately upon setting the tray on my lap, Hannah grabbed some blueberries and a big bite of my pancake. Just wouldn’t be Mom’s Day without someone pawing at my food.
  4. Snuggling in bed and reading with Lily. The best part is that she read Junie B Jones and I read Better Homes and Garden. Love not having to read to her!!
  5. Did I mention I didn’t get out of bed until noon???
  6. Homemade cards
  7. Hubby scoring MAJOR bonus points giving me two, count them two, full size Toblerones!! Oh and a pre-natal massage. Man do I need one of those.
  8. An afternoon picnic at the park with my parents. Good food, good family, lots of giggles oh and a big ole pile of guacamole.
  9. Topping the night off with a blizzard packed with Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. For the baby….dairy is very important.
  10. Realizing at the end of the day how blessed you are with an amazing husband and two kids you adore. And who, despite a whole host of failings, seem to adore you too. I think I’ll keep them around :)

To play along in the Top Ten Tuesday carnival, head over to Oh Amanda.

    I’m sorry, I just can’t get past the ELEVEN stinkin’ hours of sleep. I haven’t had that in…well, at least 7 months. What am I saying? I haven’t had 6 hours of sleep in the last 7 months! *sigh*

    Happy Mother’s Day to you, preggo mama!

  4. And being the mother of this amazing blogger, I have to say she has made my motherhood such a blessing. She and her precious brother gave me plenty of gray hairs( now colored of course) but I thank God for loaning them to me for all these years. And now getting to watch them become parents–what could be more amazing!!!

  5. Oh my word 11 hours of sleep!! That is awesome.

  8. I refuse to believe you didn’t get out of bed until noon. You absolutely most definitely had to pee like four times in that eleven hours, right? RIGHT?? Otherwise my own pregnant bladder is insanely jealous!

    did you find out baby’s gender? Are you going to? Mine’s a girl and I am SO HAPPY. :)
