The Adventure Starts Here: Mother's Day Weekend

Mother's Day Weekend

This weekend was all about celebrating the moms in our life, me included :)  We got together with both of our families, Chris and Noah took me out to breakfast, I got some amazing gifts, and I even got to sneak away with a friend for a mani/pedi during nap!

My boys definitely outdid themselves this year!  We had wanted to try a restaurant in our new town, but they only took reservations for 6 or more people and when we found out the wait was going to be 90 minutes, we gave up.  We drove back to our old town and went to the Morristown Deli, which is where we went for breakfast last year as well.  The day started off foggy and overcast, but just as we got there, the sun started peeking through the clouds, so we sat outside.

In addition to breakfast, they spoiled me with gifts.  We stopped by the local nursery on the way home.  I love peonies, so in addition to the last three stems they had left, we bought a peony bush to plant in our front yard!  When we got home, Chris Noah surprised me with the Blue Topaz ring I had on my Mother's Day Gift Guide.  I love how Noah is even wowed by the ring!

Since we live close by to both of our families, we were also able to spend Mother's Day weekend with both of our moms :)  My parents came over for Sunday dinner and we gave my mom (Grandma) some hydrangeas.  While some might be against hosting and making dinner on Mother's Day, I loved it and preferred it!  It was great to let Noah be at his own house with his own toys... it made for a very relaxed evening.  It was a beautiful night, so while we ate dinner inside (because of bees), we hung out on the deck afterwards while Noah played in his sand table.

^^^ my dad helped Chris plant the new peony bush and Noah then watered it for me :)

And since we seem to celebrate every holiday with a candle and singing, we did the same for Mother's Day... singing "Happy Mama's Day"!

We celebrated with Chris' family on Saturday and brought Chris' mom (Nonna) a bouquet of flowers.  Noah thought long and hard as to what color flowers to choose... pink was the winner :)  

^^^ Noah loves watermelon just as much as Chris does... it is a borderline addiction!

We also celebrated Justin's birthday (a few weeks late) this weekend since he was away for his actual birthday.  Noah had to help him blow out the candles!  

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day Weekend!
