It's Feeling A Lot Like...

Summa summa summa tiiime...
Time to sit back and unwind!

Don't mind if I do, Will Smith.

This weekend certainly put the summertime buzz in the air.  Beach days, pool outings and cooking out for every meal - I'm giddy just thinking about it.

In just 8 days, I will officially be on summer break.  Bring it on!

Mother's Day

Better late than never, I guess.

Mother's Day is by far my favorite celebratory day - not because the day is supposed to be about me or that it's a day to receive gifts - it's simply a day that I get to reflect on how happy I am to be a mom.

Robert always tries to provide opportunities for me to take the day to myself - like go to the beach, go shopping, get a pedicure, etc.  But Mother's Day to me is about spending time with my family and counting the two blessings I have in my life (well, three  - love you, babe).

So, what did we do for Mother's Day?  Hung out at Nascar Speedpark of course!  What Mother wouldn't find that dreamy?  We all know it's all about the kids - even on Mother's Day.

Evan's first hole-in-one!

In addition to our lovely day spent together, Robert did the grocery shopping for me and I received a very sweet homemade card from Evan and Mattie Jane.  Robert also hooked me up with a new pair of TOMS and a gift certificate for a pedicure - he's trying to tell me my dogs are barking! :)

Being a mom is the hardest job I've ever had, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.  There is no love like the love I have for my kids.  Happy Mother's Day to me!  Yay.
