Mother's Big Day (uh, night actually...)
We are such Mother's Day rebels.
Dean and the kids gave me my Mother's Day gifts yesterday. Dean couldn't stand it. He just had to see my reaction when I opened my goodies. Wouldn't even give me time to put on makeup...except for lipstick...thank goodness for THAT.
He promised no photos but whipped out the camera from a hiding place and started snapping away...sorry folks!
I was thrilled to get the lamp for my piano. I've never needed one before but in this house we have a built in nook that the piano fits into which is GREAT accoustically....but gets a bit dark in the evenings.
Imagine my joy 'o' joys when I read the box as I opened this next gift....
Oh yeah.........I KNEW it! What could a rectangular box possibly hold for an apron obsessed seamstress? A dress form! And its just my size........8-)
We always go out to dinner Saturday night for Mother's Day. It is just too crazy on Sunday.
I hate crowds and the thought of being in one just to EAT LUNCH doesn't appeal to me at all.
So we all tromped off to a movie of my choice....IRONMAN....and it ROCKS!!!
Afterwards, we went out to dinner....my choice again!
OH! And since it was 'my night' they let me dash in to Hobby Lobby for a minute to pick up a coordinating fabric for an apron I am making.........now THAT is power..........
Ah, Mother's Day........I'll miss you until next year!
