Momma Mia

What a wonderful Mother's Day weekend I had! I may or may not have gone a little overboard on the amount of Vitamin D I received over the weekend, however I'm a sucker for the sun and the warmth. It's a clear sign that I work inside most of the time and that my skins sees very little of that yellow guy in the clouds. We were blessed with a beautiful weather weekend in the Lou. Sunny and in the 80's the whole, entire weekend! Woohoo!
I came home to this on Thursday after work
We had a great weekend and went non-stop.
We relaxed a lil' bit on Saturday morning
And attended (Daddy, me, Aunt Lou, Uncle Aaron, Papa and Papa's buddy Bill) the St. Louis Microfest in the afternoon (Thanks Meme!)
And Uncle Aaron's surprise 30th afterwards (pictures of that later).
I was feeling it by last night and it was well worth every minute of exhaustion.
I'm so tired today and pretty sure at 32 going all weekend, especially when drinking is involved, will turn into a cold of some sort. Lovely. 33 is knocking on my front door, so I better keep up the zinc today. Yesterday I woke up with a sore throat and today I have the dry, scratchy throat and cough. Ummmmm...talking about my ailments makes me sound old.
Mark and Mia put together my gift on Friday afternoon, a set of black rockers and a table for our front porch. They are a perfect fit for that bare spot. I love them. Mia and I sat in them yesterday afternoon, she in one, I in the other and sang Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star about 15 times. We just rocked and sang. So cute, especially when they can't make out all the words, yet have the tune and the cute lil' voice.
See how cute my new rockers are:
They are ready for a bottle of wine.
Anyway, as I reflect back on my Mother's Day weekend I really, truly recognize how very blessed I am to have such a wonderful Mom. She's a great mom, a great grandma and an amazing friend. I could not be more thankful. The fact that Mia calls her Meme, is even better. Not sure where she got it from, but it's her thing and I like it (she's Grandma Nan to my other nieces).
I took about 812 pictures this weekend, so maybe, just maybe I will get them downloaded and edited sooner than later and share them soon!
Have a great week everybody!
