Mother's Day 2013

I woke up this morning to a Mother's Day facial.   Layla put Lily in our bed to wake me up.  Then the kids gave me art work they made for me.  It was a fun way to wake up.  

We were all craving cheeseburgers, so we went to Steak n Shake and ate burgers, fries and shakes. Calories don't count on Mother's Day!  I got a red velvet shake and it was awesome!  I was so full and really didn't eat much the rest of the day.

Gary asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day this year and I had already mentioned a set of coffee mugs I saw at Sam's, so we picked those up.  I have also been wanting a grill.  Gary uses the smoker and charcoal grill, but I want a grill I can use at our new house on the covered porch.  I want to be able to grill all kinds of summer meals. Steaks and veggies and chicken and even grilled fruits.  We did a little grill shopping and I found the perfect one.  I wanted to cook on it today, but the wind was brutal and it was down right chilly.  We decided the cool weather wasn't the best for breaking in my new grill.  Instead we set it up and showed the pups around our new place.

I had a wonderful day with Gary, the kids and our pets.  I know I am so blessed and I am thankful.  I am very giddy with excitement about our new place.  I know it isn't our forever home, but I have just been so miserable in our current house.  It feels so weird.  I wish I could explain it, but basically I haven't liked this house from the second I walked in.  

Our new house is quaint and it is surrounded by green grass and open space.  I am looking forward to cook outs with friends and tons of summer fun!  I am also very excited about seeing the sun set again.  I've mentioned it before, but I can't really see it right now living downtown.  I love the sun and can't wait to soak it up!  I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
