Today Meghan and I surprised Mom and went to her house for Mothers Day. She had no idea we were coming. When we got there, she was sitting on the couch on her laptop. I walked in with flowers and said Happy Mother's Day and she jumped and had such a look of shock on her face. I sure wish someone had a camera at that point! She thought with the price of gas and the fact that we were just there on Easter we wouldn't be coming.
We had a nice day. We went to a Farmers Market and I came out with boxes of plants and jars of yummy sugar free jams and bbq sauces and fresh veggies. Everything will fill up our back seat.
Mom planted me a flower
and I brought her flowers:
I brought all the fixings for a healthy dinner and we cooked it after we got back from the market. We had bison burgers topped with avocado and pico de gallo, baked butternut squash fries, spaghetti squash, baby zucchini, asparagus, a tomato and mozzarella salad, green beans and sweet potatoes. This is my plate:
I got a pedicure for a gift
and a Coach purse from the Coach outlet. For Mothers Day, they had 50% off already marked down prices and then 30% off on top of that of any/all purchases in the entire store. Can't beat 80% off! I also got a night gown and some really pretty key chains from Meghan. Emily sent me a message that Skyla ate my gift and that it wasn't edible, LOL. I'm not sure what that was!
Here is a pic of 4 generations, Nanny, Mom, Meghan and me:
It was a very nice day.
Happy Mother's Day!
