The Best Way to Celebrate Mother's Day

I celebrated my first "official" Mother's Day yesterday. Last year I was 36 weeks pregnant and had NO idea I would be having Henry just five short days later.

This year Henry was here as an active almost-one-year-old and it was so much fun to celebrate with him! We kept things simple, easy and low key. It was, in fact, the best way to celebrate Mother's Day.

First, I slept in until 8am. It was amazing. Then hubs and baby brought me coffee in a new special mug.

It's all about letting the moms sleep in guys.

Thirty minutes later, he showed up with a fully loaded breakfast tray. Sprouted grain pancakes, real maple syrup, bacon, and fruit. Mmmmm!



Of course it was hard to ignore the adorable I Love Mom banner (husband with Etsy skills FTW) and big blue bag full of goodies! I got an adorable card that Henry "wrote" telling me all the reasons he loves me. So cute!

Mmmmm, breakfast in bed!

Then I scored big with a Garmin fitness tracker, antique champagne glasses, a manicure set that will fit perfectly in my purse (no more wishing I had a nail file!), scented soy candles and a booklet of "Mom vouchers" for things like a foot rub, sleeping in to 11am, etc.



All our other plans got rained out, so we hung pictures around the house. I took a nap. Then we had an early dinner at a Mediterranean place that was AH-MAZE-ZING (Cedars Mezza on Walnut Hill for all you Dallasites - do yourself a favor and go!)

I'm one lucky lady. And not just on Mother's Day - every. single. day. I hope all my mommy readers had an equally simple, stress free and lovely day!

  12. Please tell me you're going to keep that banner and display it somewhere? So sweet! Dad and Henry did great on the gifts! Have you guys managed not to float away in all this rain? Our yard is so drenched that I'm pretty sure it's either going to kill all our grass, or make it even greener.
