Happy Monday, Friends! I hope all of the moms had a great Mother’s Day Weekend! Mine was great… so I figured I’d so a quick little Mother’s Day Weekend Recap for you.
David went to pick up my stepdaughter on Friday. He gets her every other weekend. Thankfully, this week he was able to leave to get her a little earlier (she lives 2 1/2 hours away, but her Granny does meet David halfway on Fridays). They got home a little after I did on Friday night. Alexis had just gotten back that morning from a school trip to Washington, D.C. So we got caught up on a few highlights of her trip.
Mother’s Day Gifts!
Then David handed me the last part of my gift (the others had come earlier in the week). It was the last book that was on my Amazon Wishlist! (Scroll down to see the other books I got!).
Then, Alexis went to grab her gift for me. And I failed to get pictures! But, she got me a couple of bags of Reese’s, and a candle that smells like one of my favorite things: The Beach! She also got me an awesome Mother’s Day card. Since we don’t have her very often, I don’t always think of myself as a “mom.” But I have been a part of her life since she was about 3 or 4!
On Saturday, I got up and did my usual routine: walked the pups and got in a little run. I also desperately needed to clean my house. So I knocked that out, while David washed the vehicles. Then I helped him clean and vacuum out the vehicles. By lunchtime, most of the chores (except ALL. THE. LAUNDRY. If you know, you know!) were done! So we decided to head out for lunch… My choice! And I, of course, picked my all time favorite! Then the evening got really interesting… I got to experience my first ever BULLFIGHTING event. Not bull riding. Bull FIGHTING!
