steppin' out {sunday} - mother's day edition

happy mother's day ladies!!

i hope everyone has been having a wonderful weekend & enjoying their moms, their motherhood, or their baby's mamas.  i definitely have.  i'm kind of feeling like this is my first real mother's day.  last year parker was like a week or two old & motherhood hadn't quite sunk in.  i felt more like a caretaker than a mother.  now?  i'm legit.  i'm totally & completely entrenched into being someone's mom & i love it.  and i'm loving today.

sam asked me what i wanted for mother's day & i only had a few requests... six to be exact.  to sleep in, an amazing dinner made by him, my favorite dessert, a family after-dinner walk, & a pedicure.  we're five for six.  it's pouring outside & it's not looking like the walk is gonna happen.  boooooo to you seattle.

i got a pedicure yesterday afternoon & it was glorious.  it was only the second one i've had since parker's been alive & i was going through serious pedi withdrawals.  i enjoyed every second of it.


this morning i woke up at 8:30 to the sound of parker & sam playing in the living room.  nothin better than that.  we just finished a freaking delicious meal made by sam of bbq steak, oven-fries, & strawberry-spinach salad.  crazy-good.  i'm saving a big bowl of cookies n' cream ice cream w/ crunched up oreos for dessert until after parker goes to bed, & i'm calling this the best mother's day ever.  EVER.  

and this is what we looked like when we went to church today.  it was even sunny for a few minutes so we could take pictures.  thank you mother's day gods.


{linking up with harper's happenings for steppin' out saturday & really are you serious for mommy & me monday.  you should too.}

and now i want to thank my own mom for being amazing & awesome & for bringing me up right & for always being an amazing example of motherhood to me & being a wonderful grandma to my baby.  and thank you to my mother-in-law for raising me a handsome husband & father to my son.  i have so much love for these two amazing women.  thanks for being awesome.

& i have all kinds of love for all of y'all who click twice to vote for our little blog.

  16. I love your outfit! I wish I could afford pedicures more often than I get them. They make me feel like a whole new woman. That and getting my brows waxed.
