Happy Mothers Day to Moi

I had a wonderful Mother's Day Weekend. First, some of my girlfriends and I went to the coast. We didn't plan it to fall near mother's day, but we decided it was a wonderful gift to ourselves. It was actually for Kristi's birthday that was like three weeks previous. But hey, its a good excuse!

Julia hooked us up with a really nice condo in Newport. And the beach was gorgeous! The night we got there, we built a fire, and cooked hot dogs and s'mores. That's right, not only are we wilderness women, we're classy. Nothing like sandy, gritty, burnt hot dogs. But it was an adventure. We had fun in the next day talking . . . a lot, running on the beach, doing yoga on the beach, having a picnic on the beach, going to the farmer's market, watching a chick flick, and yes, again, talking. I had SO much fun. It's been way too long since I had a weekend with girlfriends. I'm already planning the next one! No seriously, I am. Next stop, Mexico.

Third time's a charm! It took Kristi three times to successfully cook a hot dog and eat it.

Here is our amazing fire. It was a little challenging, since Friday night was extremely windy! We also accidentally parked right next to a huge log that smelled so bad like urine. It was way too late before we discovered this. And then someone told us that within about a foot of where we were, a dog was buried. Sure enough, there was a huge pile of dug up sand.

Megan, Kristi, Dani, and Julia.
Nick watched Brizzy while I was gone. And I don't normally brag about Nick on my blog, but I really am lucky to have a husband is a good Dad. He has absolultey no qualms about watching Briz on his own. In fact, I think he likes it. So maybe I'll be a supportive wife and go away more often with my girlfriends :)
On Mother's Day, Nick got me a minitiature rose plant, some earrings, and some Cinnamon Bears. He let me sleep in, cooked me breakfast, did the dishes and the laundry (well some of it). Well done, Nick. Well done. I think I would like a quarterly mother's day. That's fair, right?

Sounds like a lovely day.

I miss being part of your girls' nights :(

I was visiting my mom. And in her ward the men took over all the callings for the last two hours of church and all the women and young women got to be together for a brief lesson, treats, and visiting while doing a craft. It was pretty awesome.

Happy Mother Day you Bazy Critch! (Are you allowed to say that to Mom's?) Was it kind of weird having mother's day for yourself or was it just awesome, I bet more the latter. Your family is adorable.

We went to Chicago for mother's day to see Peter's parents. I missed my mom but we did have a nice time and they took us out for steak dinner, so I can't complain!

All your photos made me so jealous of girl's night. I loved the hotdog shots. What a perfect way to celebrate.

Miss you lots. You look so happy. Keep it up.
