Thanks to my thoughtful friends and family, I had a wonderful Mother’s Day!
The weekend kicked off with my stepdaughter, Gretchen having flowers delivered to me on Friday with the most thoughtful and sincere little note attached to them. Also on Friday, I had card to open from my friend, Shannon who lives in Texas. She just wanted to let me know that she was cheering for me. How sweet!
We celebrated on Sunday with a brunch in honor of my mom and Nan at our house. My brother and sister-in-law were there. I made Quiche Lorraine and a spinach quiche. My sister-in-law made her famous artichoke dip and brought fresh pineapple as a side dish. I announced as I brought the pineapple to the table, “Eat your pineapple, everyone! It will help your embryos stick to your uterus!” My brother shook his head and said, “Ew.” We finished off lunch with chocolate mousse pie, and it was dee-lish.
Of course, we sent the mothers home with cards and flowers, but that’s not all. It seemed as though everyone was inspired to honor me, on this Mother’s Day. It was really amazing. As I was preparing for our guests’ arrival, Michael handed me a card and said, “Happy Mother’s Day.” It had the most wonderful message for me inside that just made me feel, from my head to my toes, proud that he is the one who will be my Baby Daddy. Nan gave me a set of antique blocks for the nursery. They are going to look great when everything is all set up and we are waiting for the babies’ arrival. Did I just use baby in the plural again? Yep. Looks like I did. My mom gave me a cute little gift bag that had in it a beautifully written card and the sweetest little treasure inside.
Anyone want to guess what the gift was? Yep. Bling.
Can you see what the card that the necklace is attached to says?
A girl, a boy, a single baby or twins, one thing is for certain. There will be love.
