{high}

I'm still on a high from my 1st true Mother's Day weekend.

Last year when we celebrated I looked like this (notice my belly was too big to fit in the shot)...



Oh what a difference a year has made! Here I am with the boys yesterday...I know I am a little biased but aren't they just the most handsome boys you've ever seen?!?!



I was definitely spoiled this weekend, and it start on Friday when I got home from work. I walked into the house to see this...



My lovely mother-in-law had started painting our dining room!!! And she got so much done in just a short amount of time. She also made the curtains for Ben's room. Wonder woman she is, I tell ya.

Then, the hubby leads me to the garage to show me my Mother's Day present...

A swing for the back patio!!! I can't tell you how excited I am about that swing. Our porch swing at the old house was one of my favorite places to relax, so to have one at the new house is so exciting. I can't wait to get it put together so I can enjoy it.

On Saturday, we had a Mother's Day lunch at a local restaurant. My mom and sister came, as well as my Wonder Woman of a mother-in-law, her sister, and my sister-in-law. We had so much fun, ate some yummy food (especially the desserts) and exchanged heartfelt cards and gifts. Here are a few pics from our lunch...





Mmmmmmm....



And yesterday, the hubs and I spent a leisurely morning with the boys, then had a nice lunch at mother-in-law's house, followed by a much needed trip to Target. What a great weekend it was...perfect for celebrating being a Mom.

Hope all of my other mommy friends had an equally great weekend!!
