Mothers Day is a pretty good idea if you ask me. It's a chance to get to celebrate the wonderful woman I call mom, and it doesn't hurt that I get a little bit of pampering being a mom too. :)
I'm generally a consumables type person, and although I think flowers are beautiful, sometimes they seem impractical as they don't last that long. Marshall brought me the best of both worlds.
He had the boys each pick out a plant/flower for me which was a wonderful idea. I can't remember what either of them are called since I don't have a green thumb or the little tag handy that came with each flower, but I don't care - they're beautiful!
Here's the indoor flower Chan gave me.
And the one Rowan got me that we will plant out in our flowerbed, once we get it cleaned out, etc. Marsh said he wanted me to pick out flowers for the bed and get it all prettied for the summer. We haven't done it yet, but I think it's a fab idea.
This morning, Marsh brought me breakfast in bed. My favorite - crepes with fresh fruit and whipped topping. At church, I was relieved of my primary duties and got to go with all of the women to Relief Society. Sometimes I feel like I'm in a rut with primary and I definitely needed the lesson today.
The rest of the afternoon consisted of a nap, and laying around. So so nice. After dinner, Marshall brought out the Magnum Ice Cream Bars. He said they used to eat them when he was in France, and searched high and low when he got back in the states for them. Could never find them. Guess what? 8 years later, they are available. Your cue to drool and head out to the grocery store to find them.
Incredible, and for the record, I don't like to share them...
And last but not least, I've been wanting something from Vera Bradley for a while. A few designs were 50% off last week, and I bought myself a Mothers Day present...at least that's my excuse.
It came yesterday and I love it. But that may not be a good thing. I'm already looking forward to someday getting a purse. :)
