I know everyone has already posted about their Mother’s Day, but I wanted to save mine for today for my “Feel Good Friday” post. I had a great Mother’s Day weekend! The weather was unfortunately cold and pretty craptastic, but we made the best of it.
Alivia actually gave me her present early, on Tuesday when I went to “Muffins with Mom.” No, I’m not talking about the visor! Are you ready? You’re going to love it!
Isn’t it the most beautiful birdhouse ever? I can’t wait to put it up, but apparently I need to mount it on a post. Hmm…Shawn is not the handiest person in the world, so I’m not sure how that’s going to work out. Oh, and sorry about the bad picture, I have no idea why Lainey and I both have the same “WTF?” look on our face.
Saturday night Shawn took the girls and I out to dinner at a local Mexican place called “Trini’s.” The food is always delish, and the Sangria definitely hit the spot! The service was terrible though, and I actually fired our waitress. Yes, you heard me. I fired her. She took our drink order and then didn’t come back for 10 minutes. Another waitress finally came over asking if we needed more chips and salsa, so I said “Yes, and we need a new waitress!” I think Shawn was embarrassed, but nobody makes me wait 10 minutes for my Sangria!
On Sunday morning Shawn and the girls gave me another gift, which was also really special. It’s not so much the gift that’s special though, but the story behind it. First, here is the present:
I’m not sure if you can tell from the picture, but it’s one of those really big wall clocks. I had a clock similar to this, but it stopped working and we never got it fixed. Several months ago I showed Shawn this clock at this store and he was basically like “Uh-huh, yeah that’s nice.” In other words, he wasn’t listening.
But, it turns out someone else was listening. When Shawn asked the girls what they wanted to get me for Mother’s Day, Lainey reminded him of the clock, and insisted that they get it! Can you believe it? This made me smile, especially since for the last 20 years I have been helping my Dad buy gifts for my Mom.
It was also perfect timing (haha, no pun intended) for the clock, because guess what?! My new furniture is coming on Saturday! I’m so excited I could pee my pants! The only downside is that we are without living room furniture for a few days because my cousin, who bought our old set, came and picked it up tonight. Oh well, more room to
fall off ride my bike, right?!
I hope everyone has a great weekend, and had something to feel good about this week! To link up and play along with “Feel Good Friday,” just click on the picture below:
