Mother's Day 2014

I hope all you mommies had a wonderful weekend being celebrated!  I was sure spoiled with so much love from my two boys!  Saturday morning, I took some "me" time and it was glorious!  I went for a mile swim & then soaked in the hot tub for a bit afterwards.  It's amazing how just a few minutes of relaxing and not having to rush off to do something can energize you for the rest of the day.  Then I treated myself to pedicure, which finished up just in time to put Liam down for a nap and take a little snooze myself.  I need mornings like these where I can turn off "mommy mode" for a just a few hours a little more often!  It makes for a much happier mama and in turn a happy babe!

Sunday, I was celebrated like a queen & it felt good!
Slept in until 10:15am.
Woke up to a champagne breakfast & presents!
(Sweets, flowers, & lululemon are practically my love language)

It was a rainy day, and Liam has a bit of a cold...
but that only meant plenty of couch snuggles!
And a little Spring cleaning.
2+ hour nap time.
1+ hour attempted potty time.
(Apparently Liam can hold his pee longer than I am willing 
to sit on a cold bathroom floor and read books)
Happy hour with a nice bottle of wine (Durigutti Reserve Malbec)
while Conor makes stuffed chicken breasts for dinner.
"Me" time while the babe is in the tub.
Kisses, snuggles, nursies.
Backgammon ('cause we're old).
Early to bed.
Perfect day with the two greatest loves of my life.

I feel incredibly lucky to have the sweet little boy that I do, and am thankful everyday that he is mine & I am his!  I wish I could have spent the day with my own mom as well, but at least I get to see her in 1 week!  I cannot wait!  She's one of the best.  Best mom, best friend, best cook, best gardener, & best nana!
Happy (late) Mother's Day to all!
