Happy Mothers Day!!
Okay, so right away you should know I will be shamefully boasting in this post. Don't say you haven't been warned! I have had THE VERY BEST Mother's Day ever! Aside from having to wake up early for an 8:00 AM church meeting, that is. Dave and the girls and I were all matching today in our bubble gum pink hues. I actually had it together enough to to style Tiffany and Natalie's hair and still be on time, which is a huge feat for me that early in the morning. Had a fantastic Sunday at church with all the Primary children and teachers/leaders. Me and my "gals" (Primary Presidency - I am the secretary) had a glorious time, albeit slightly hectic, helping the kids make cards and frost/decorate cupcakes for their mothers, which they then presented to them in adorable little gem-adorned boxes. The BEST part of this activity is the fact that I had probably 3 (okay, more like 4, could have been 5......I lost track) cupcakes and about a pint of frosting. These are homemade cupcakes and frosting that my friend, Erin, produces and they only surface twice a year, so the whole supply and demand factor was at work. I knew I wasn't going to see another cupcake for roughly six months, so I had to store up. Oh MAN! These are hands down the tastiest treats in the world. NO kidding! Seriously! So, after gorging myself and cleaning up our mess, the girls and I headed home. Dave has to stay after church on Sundays to do his calling, so we are always alone the first hour. Now, you have to realize that Sundays are clearly the messiest day of the week in our house, due to the tornado that takes place getting us all ready to walk out the door so early. I was not exactly looking forward to coming home and cleaning it up on my special day. Imagine my surprise as I walked into an immaculate house! Floors swept and mopped, carpets vacuumed, beds made, spotless kitchen - I was stunned! Martina McBride's "There You Are" blaring from the stereo on repeat - love that song, fresh pink tulips (my favorite color, of course)in a vase on the table and a beautiful Mother's Day card, enclosing CONCERT TICKETS to both the BFD Kiss 106.1 venue and the Sarah Evans concert coming up! My sneaky boy had raced home during church to do this all for his adoring wife and make her feel special. Thank you, Dave!!! I love you so much. Then I got to crawl into bed, due to the effects of my sugar-fest now wreaking havoc on my body (yes, I know, not the best choice!) and take a long and fabulous nap. Ahhhhhh, I do feel like a Queen today. I'm going to revel in it for the next little while before I can no longer milk it. Hope you all had amazing Mothers Days as well! See, I told you it was shameless.
