Our Mother's Day Weekend

Friday night was our usual. We worked late and I picked up Little C's while Ad picked up E. I randomly checked Redbox to see if any good movies were playing and 'Little Fockers' was out so I decided to reserve it and it pick it up on my way home, too. E went to sleep early because she only had 1 nap and was super duper tired. Then Ad and I enjoyed the best $6 date night :) Pizza and a movie! Seriously, Little C's was only $5 for a large pizza and $1 for our Redbox movie....pure awesomeness if ya ask me!! Love the inventors of the Redbox! Greatest thing since sliced bread in my opinion!!

Saturday I worked and Ad kept E. He called me at work and said Ella Jae was walking through the house looking for me....she was crying, saying 'mommy' and even peeked up over the side of the bed to look for me ha! So I talked to her on the phone and she was all better :) Love that little snickerdoodle!!

We played outside with her big red ball that she likes to pick up over her head :) The ball is bigger than her ha!

She also spent some time sitting in her pick chair that Mama bought for her. This one stays on the porch and we move it to the ground so she won't fall off the porch with it. The child has more chairs than carter has liver pills!!

Also on Saturday, I went on a girls night to celebrate this beauty's birthday....

We went to Wild Wings to eat dinner, and I was so excited about it because I love me some Wild Wings!! I had been craving the Buffarella Wrap :)

Then we went bowling. I am NO bowler. I pretty much stink. Like for real! I seriously bowled like a 36 or something. Just about all the other girls broke 100 LOL! Told ya I was bad ha! But it was fun!!

We were all super tired by the end of the night because some of us are mommy's and others are nurses. So our bedtimes are pretty early ha!

Then ofcourse we had to make a pitstop at Starbucks! Yummo! Love the lovelies!!

Happy birthday, Jess! I hope you had a wonderful birthday and birthday dinner celebrating your special day! I am so thankful for our friendship! You have the sweetest spirit and kindest heart! Love ya, girl!!

Sunday was Mother's Day! Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! Adam was so sweet to get up with Ella Jae. Then when I got up, my favorites gave me a precious scrapbook of my baby pictures and comparable ones of Ella Jae along with sprinkle of my Mama and Momma mixed in, too! Adam worked really hard to make it and I will always treasure it! Ella Jae got me this watch that I have been wanting! Girlfriend has good taste already!! I loved my special gifts!

Adam also went to the grocery for me to pick up some things I needed to make dessert to take, and he even brought me breakfast from Dunkin Donuts, too :) After church we went to my grandma's for lunch and then to his parents' house to celebrate with Ad's family. We had kabobs!!!

The kabobs are a tradtition that I started by accident. We had them randomly one year and since I have always requested it so now it is a must on Mother's Day!!

I ofcourse had to get a picture of me and my girl!! Love her to pieces even if she will not stay still for longer than 2 seconds and look at the camera ha!

I thought she looked so stinkin' cute in her sailor pantsuit for church! I did change her not long after this picture ha!

I also had to throw this picture in here because you can totally see that her first top tooth came through! Thank goodness! But definitely, the one beside it is now trying to come through. never ends ha! Bless her little heart!

We had a great weekend! It was so nice to celebrate Mother's Day with the women in our life, those who have been like Mother's to me the past 13 years, and my second year as a Mom! Mother's Day has always been a sad day for me until last year. I no longer have to be sad that I don't get to celebrate with my Mom on this day because I get to celebrate BEING a Mommy to Ella Jae. I can't think of a greater reason to celebrate! I know my Mom is smiling down on us and celebrating with us. God knew that I needed Ella Jae as much as she needs me. I thank Him everyday for giving me the most precious gift, and I pray that I never take being a Mommy to Ella Jae for granted. It is such a joy, honor, and priviledge to get to be a Mommy, Ella Jae's Mommy!
