I had a wonderful Mother's day weekend and I hope all you Mother's did too. It is nice to have a special day to be reminded that you are loved and appreciated.
On Mother's day my oldest (Janae) took me out for Mexican food and to the movie "Heaven is for real"--it was a great movie and dinner was delicious. So fun to have a night out! She also bought me a gift certificate to a Annie Sloan chalk paint stockist in an neighboring town that I didn't know existed. I am very excited to go visit that shop...and have money to spend! Janae always spoils me!
I woke up in the morning of Mother's day to the kids cleaning house and making me these cup cakes.
Chantel said it took her forever to spell out the words in little candy pearls. What sweet kids I have.
My very thoughtful Dad bought me roses with a note that said he and my Mom are so proud of the Mother I am. Very touching.
It went on to say that he had bought me his favorite red and white rose and then my Mother told him I don't like red and so he went back and bought me pink.
So I got double the roses! Mom's always know what you like :)
My husband bought me a beautiful Clematis for the yard and even said he would plant it for me.
On Mothers day I also of course went to see my own Mother- my Mother in law- and Grandma. I wish I would have taken pictures! Mother's day was also my Dad's birthday--so a big weekend for our family!
This weekend I also got to go to a lifetime friends wedding (we have known each other since we were 2). Hadn't seen her in years and was so happy to see how happy she is and meet her new husband (who has to be one of the world's nicest guys--immediately felt like I had known him forever). So enjoyed seeing her parents too. Some people it just doesn't matter how many years go by of not seeing each other there is a bond there that is like they are family. It was such a lovely celebration.
Another fun event of the weekend was the Doggie dash--where we raised money for the Oregon Humane Society. It was such a fun event--I heard there was 4000 dogs there! I didn't see one dog fight either. It was so fun!
There were people and dogs as far as the eye could see!
We met one of Janae's Facebook friends there that she had never met in real life..and so we did the 2.5 mile walk with 9 Poms (4 being Janae's and 5 belonging to her friend). Janae's friend was so nice--we really enjoyed walking with her and her fur kids.
We had a fun time! The dogs were so good--I think they were nervous about all the big dogs around. :) We got a lot of attention from other doggie dashers with all those Poms walking together!
How was your Mother's day weekend? Just wonderful I hope :)
Thanks for visiting!
