My First Mother’s Day

PicCollageThis weekend I got to celebrate my first ever Mother’s Day thanks to this sweet little face. It was a fun filled (yet exhausting) weekend. On Saturday night my parents came to visit and we celebrated my wonderful father’s birthday with a nice dinner out. Lots of fantastic food, wine and the most delicous pomegranate and thai basil riblets!

Sunday morning I met my two best girl friends for our weekly run around the lake. It was the perfect way to start the day, plus I needed to be able to justify the delicious brunch I was going to eat later, most importantly this donut (that is maple with bacon jimmies in case you couldn’t tell!)


We burned off brunch by wandering around the farmers market where we picked up some of the sweetest cherries. A stop in to the local toyshop was also in order, where Finn was spoiled by his grandparents with some new wooden teeters/ toys including this combo pacifier clip/teether  by Haba.  And while this mama could have really used an afternoon nap, Finn is getting is next set of teeth in and we are in full on teething mode (again). Which means lots of interrupted sleep, putting everything in his mouth, and of course boycotting naps. This round seems to be taking a much harder toll on the little guy than the last one, but they started to poke though last night so there’s an end in sight (at least for now).

Hope all the beautiful mama’s out there had an amazing day!
