Both girls gave me these new bath products from Bath and Body. Have you smelled these yet???? Oh my....you should. They are to die for. Summer Vanillas Berry. Yummmmm.
This is what was in my Minnie bag from youngest daughter. A new make up bag. She said she chose this pattern for me because it has flowers on it and the color pink. Two things she knows I like.
Yummy candy for me.
Sweet home made cards from my girls.
The kids took me out to lunch after church. This fine dining establishment was what I picked. It is the cutest McDonald's. It is decorated like a log cabin. Very clean and neat. I knew that every place would be busy on Mother's day and daddy had to fly out for work, so we just went someplace quick. I also knew the kids would love it and I really do love those hot salty fries. Yum!
Here we are....me and my girls.
Later in the afternoon, I ran to Michaels to get a couple things I needed to finish a project. I decided this mama needed happy hour. I am a real wild one.......Sonic half price drinks.......Low Cal Cherry Limeade. I really must contain myself. Hee hee.
After the kids got to bed and hubby had safely made it to his destination, I popped some of my most favorite food and cracked open a diet coke and watched Titanic on the telly. It was a lovely day.
I did not get to spend it with my family or friends like I usually do. That was hard for me. Tears came to my eyes while we were eating lunch because I missed them and our tradition.
And lastly, this was on my calendar for Mother's Day. Enough said. :)

So mama, even though I am not there with you physically to celebrate this special day for mothers, I am with you in your heart and you are in mine.
I love you so very much,

We survived the big night! Well, I never had any doubt that darling daughter would not....it was me I was worried about. This part of mothering is new for me. Letting my daughter go off to a dance. :) Sniff....sniff.
We were very thankful. The rain held off until the pretty girls got into the school. Then down it came. It would of really messed up their pretty hair-do's if we would of been caught out in that downpour!
She meet up with a group of friends at another friends house. We took their pictures in front of the most wonderful smelling lilac bush. It was like perfume from God.
And lastly at the school, she meet up with her date for the evening. He is the sweetest young man. He even bought her a corsage for the evening. Awwww.
She called me when the dance was over and told me she had a "FANTASTIC TIME" and also that "two hours was not nearly long enough for a dance mom."
I vaguely remember that.....so very long ago.
I am so very proud of you sweet baby girl. I am proud of the young woman you are becoming. I am proud of the choices you are faced with and make. I am proud to be your mama. XOXOXO
Her daddy and I were a little quiet when we left her at the school. I don't know about him, but this song came to my heart......
(you will have to pause my playlist so both are not playing at the same time)
