Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms! I hope you all had wonderful days and a great Mother’s Day weekend. After I got home from work on Saturday evening, two cards were waiting for me.
I loved the embroidery work on the card Scott gave me.
This was Skylar’s card to me with the message she wanted Scott to write to me:
In terms of my day, I wish I could say that I:
Took a break from laundry
Ate Bon-Bons. Or at least ate some No Bake Vanilla Cake Batter Chocolate Truffles
But none of that happened.
What did happen:
Skylar hugged her bunny
And I hugged Skylar
I Ran Errands
Packed a little bit for our trip
I got in a couple nice runs and a couple 2o minute at-home yoga/weightlifting sessions over the weekend.
Unfortunately, the weather here wasn’t nice this weekend. Gray and overcast, windy and cold. The flowers are blooming, though.
Thanks for all the great comments regarding my Fudgy Nutella Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting. Yes, they are super fudgy.
1. What did you do to celebrate Mother’s Day?
Other than opening my cards and having some extra hugs and snuggles with the family, it was business as usual for me.
Saturday and Sunday afternoons are precious times of the week for me because Scott takes Skylar for a few hours so I can slam and jam with errands, housework, cooking, blogging, you name it.
While he’s in charge of Little Miss, I’m able to be really productive and try to get a headstart on the week and get organized.
2. What does a Perfect or Dream Day include for you?
sleeping more than 5 hours and all in one stretch, i.e. 2 hours here and 2 hours there, not ideal
not being woken up with this phrase: “Mommy, I pooped. Wipe my butt!”
cooking for pleasure only with ample to time to take tons of photographs. As opposed to cooking because I actually have to feed the hungry troops and picture time is limited because everyone’s hungry.
not going to paid work
reading books and magazines
laying out and working on my tan
opening up a blue box from Tiffany
getting a massage
having a great run + yoga session
being un-productive in general
Those are a few items on my dream day list. None of that usually happens, though.
What’s on your Dream Day list?
