My first Mother's Day

I know it's been a while since I have posted but it is due to the fact that my computer is still broken. I now have a new way to post, but I will get into that later in this post.

This past weekend I celebrated my first Mother's Day. I spent the weekend at my parents house with my husband, baby and dog. We had a great weekend and beautiful weather. We were able to get out and take a walk around town on Saturday and my husband and I were even able to get out for a date night Saturday while my parents babysat.

Before we went out, my husband asked me if it was ok if the baby gave me his Mother's Day gift tonight instead of in the morning because he (the baby, who is 10 months old) was too excited to wait for the morning. I told him that if he was THAT excited then it would be ok if he gave it to me early. So my husband took the baby and they went and got my gift out and handed it to me. When I opened it, I discovered that I was the new owner of an iPad2!!! This is something that I had been talking about for weeks but did not think that there was any way that I would be able to have one since I don't have a job (well one that pays money that is). My husband told me not to expect something like this every year but he knew how much I wanted one and wanted me to know how much he appreciated everything that I do for him and our baby. Love him! So now I have a new way to blog and I am loving it!

That was a great way to start my first Mother's Day and Sunday proved to be just as good. We all got up Sunday morning and went out to breakfast. My Mother-in-law Joined us for breakfast as well. After breakfast we all went for a 5+ mile walk while the baby took a nice long nap in the stroller. After our walk we went back to my parents house for lunch. Shortly after lunch we packed up the car and headed home. That night, since it was still so nice out, we decided to grill and eat dinner outside. It was the perfect way to end a great weekend. I could not have asked for a better Mother's Day!

I have a few projects that I have been working on and a few that I can't wait to start. Now that I have a way to post, I am hoping to post about them soon. Thanks for reading and to all the other Moms out there, I hope you had a great Mother's Day as well!
