Today is Mother’s Day! I was awoken to a proud little 4 y/o bringing me pancakes in bed. I took them downstairs to eat though, I honestly don’t quite get eating in bed. My husband made coffee, and then I headed off to trampoline aerobics. It was a great workout as always. Lots of leg work today, a little arms too, and a lot of bouncing.
After trampoline, I headed to the mall all by myself. Mothers out there will realize that this is a big deal. I stopped for lunch at a fancy Cheesecake Factory type place. There was a two hour wait. But I was a party of one, perfectly content to skip the line and sit at the bar. It was fantastic. This is the way I want to do Mother’s Day brunch every year! I had a grilled chicken and avocado salad and a bloody mary.
Then I went shopping! For about 5 hours. All by myself. I got some new shorts from Lulu, along with two pieces from Hard Tail, and some various shirts from Gap and H&M. Then I came home and found 2 dozen red roses, happy kids, a clean house and my husband had even done all the laundry. He also smoked a turkey breast and made mashed potatoes and stuffing from scratch, and popped open a bottle of Prosecco. And then he put both kids to bed!
I’m feeling like a very lucky mama!
