I don't usually get much since we pretty much get what we want during the year, but this year was different....
My daughter (15) got me a monogramed cup and candy with her babysitting money and hubby was given a Mac and he fixed it up for me!!
My day was awesome!
Surprise gifts from DH. ( massage go and fish eye extend lens.)
The girls were "tricksters" and had pics of both grandsons! ( kept secret from January photo shoot)
We went to the Rays v Padres game today with M,G, and munchkin- fantastic.
Finished with steak on grill .
I have more pics to scrap too.
Watch th baby in th morning.
I made a nice lunch and took it over to my mom's house - she owns and operates a beauty salon and works so hard. We ate lunch (blessed to have both of my girls home at the same time for a few days) and played Rook and Scrabble. Randy got me some beautiful red roses, and Mary Beth got me a white rose and a cute card. Randy took us all to dinner LAST night for Italian. It's been a nice weekend.
I love your monogrammed cup, Missi! Too Cute.
Michi, sounds like you had a great weekend and lots of fun!
Lucky you Missi!
I got nothing - not even a card (wow - sound like my valentine's day? HA!) Well I guess I shouldnt say nothing - the older 2 each brought home a flower pot they made at school - and I bought myself a hanging basket for mother's day & my birthday (today) because I had a feeling I was getting nothing - and if I had to take time and go buy my MIL and mom something - by golly - I might as well get myself something too!
I am probably neglecting housework so I can be here... My Gallery
Aww, HUGS, Missi and Trina... I'm pretty much in the same boat. I told my kids to make a card for my mom. And aww, my oldest who usually does nothing at all..lol.. made me a card, too! My other two saw it and I said, where's mine from you guys..LOL! I'm awful!
Today we're going out to eat since DH had work yesterday. We'll take my parents, too.
My husband knows I'm not big into "holidays" where women expect gifts, but he did give me a gift card for Joann Fabrics since I've been trying to not stress about my job search. I would have been happy with a hug...really! He knows that too.
However, since Gabe is in school he made me a few things too. One was a cute recipe holder that he made in his class and a strawberry container in after care (he asked if he could keep that after he gave it to me). Plus me made me a few cards . He also told me to sit in a chair and relax. Too cute.
A few months back I had purchased tickets for the Ringling Bros circus for my son, husband, MIL and myself. I purposely picked Mother's Day (instead of Saturday) since it's was not as busy. I learned that from last year! I love the circus. We go every year.
