Well....our weekend in general was pretty relaxing and enjoyable! Friday night Maddie had volleyball practice and afterwards we stopped by Target....one of my FAVORITE stores! We started off going to Starbucks and having drinks! Then...SHOPPING! Maddie got a great pair of cute gladiator sandals, and I scored a cute blouse! Plus, I got the new Lady Antebellum CD.....and Maddie and I jammed home to it! LOVE it! We had a great time together....I cherish the alone time I get with her. She is my little "mini me" and I enjoy shopping with her!
I am decorating one of the hallways in black and white frames.....so these work perfect! I also repainted the zebra tins that I bought for Maddie last weekend with hot pink trim (forgot to take a pic).
Today was Mother's Day and it was a BLESSED one! I slept in a bit and woke up to flowers! We then got dressed and went to my FAVORITE place to eat on Mother's Day....Blue Mesa Grill! Every Sunday they have a wonderful brunch buffet....but on Mother's Day it is extra special and so crowded! They offer breakfast and lunch plus yummy desserts and they have the best sweet potato chips ever! Well...I love them anyways! They also have unlimited champagne and mimosas. We dined with my parents and Brant's parents and the kids. We had a great time having them all together. It made it and extra special day!
I LOVE being their MOTHER!!!

Mom and I did some shopping before lunch at Pottery Barn and Williams and Sonoma and some other neat shops. After lunch, we went to Barnes and Nobles and I got 2 great books....one of them I have been wanting for a while now. "The Farm Chicks In The Kitchen".
I have to share with you all what my precious kids gave me for Mother's Day. Reid wrote me a poem. YES....that's right Reid! My big, tough, football player of a boy wrote a sweet poem and showed a softer side. It was such a thoughtful and sweet gift and a forever memory! He also snuck away one of the frames I had repainted and framed it! Even better!!
Well....I hope all of my friends, family and fellow bloggers had a BLESSED Mother's Day!! I can't wait to hear how you all spent your day!
