Mother's Day Fun!

I feel blessed to say that my Mom is one of my best friends! And with each passing year, I appreciate her more and more...the love and sacrifice she made as she raised my brother and I {she is why I always aspired to be a stay-at-home-mommy} and the love and wisdom she offers today as I walk this journey of motherhood. She's everything to me.

This year I wanted to do something a little different than I have in years past and take her out on a surprise Mother/Daughter date. My amazing Dad (thanks Dad!) offered to watch the kiddos so I could take my momma out on Friday. I didn't tell her anything other than to be ready at 9:45am.

Our first stop, of course, was manicures at our favorite nail salon {TLC Nails}. Next, was lunch and dessert at Memory Lane Tea Room. I was excited to take her there because I was pretty sure she had never been before. I was correct and she was thrilled to try it out. {The baked fudge is out.of.this.world! Seriously!!}

We enjoyed the best conversation and company together! It had been far too long since we had one on one time. Usually the kiddos are with us, which is fine and we enjoy that immensely, but sometimes just mother/daughter time is necessary!

Overall, I had a great time and I know she had a great time because she told me over and over how much she enjoyed it. Love you, Mom!!

  9. What a fun day! Baked fudge is one of my favorite desserts, so I'm definitely going to have to go try it out! And I completely agree with being able to recognize the sacrifice your mom made once you become a mom. I already appreciated everything my mom did for us, but it's on a completely different level now that I'm a mom. Ps....your mom's comment made me tear up!

  10. Mother/daughter dates are so fun. My mom and I recently had one - it had been ages since we hung out without the kids, and we had such a good time! I love all of the pictures, and your mom looks like she could be your sister! :)

  16. You are such a good daughter. Your children will show you the same love and gratitude because you have modeled it so well. Manicures with momma always make for a great date!
