Hola Amigos! Mother's Day Weekend Recap




Wow, what a gorgeous and perfect weekend it was.  Hope all you mamas out there had an amazing Mother’s Day!  Here’s my recap.  And even though I’m not a mama, I don’t think you could beat my weekend one bit! 


Friday evening I met my fiance and his best friend for happy hour after work.  They had just finished a successful field day (both are P.E. teachers together) so it was a celebration too!  Tiki bar was the perfect place to kick off this beautiful weekend!


Saturday was a big, BIG day!  My bridal shower!!!!  I seriously had the most fun and couldn’t have asked for anything better.  So many of my friends and family came and were so thoughtful in their gift giving.  I will post more about it later, but for now I will just say that I had the best time and I know it will be a day that I look back on and cherish forever.  


Sunday was probably the most gorgeous day we’ve had all year.  I drank my coffee and addressed invitations on the patio, followed by thank you cards by the “pond”.  Actually, by our pool, but it’s not opened yet and the frogs were talking to me, so it seems more like pond right now!  I have a month until my beach trip, so it’s time to work on this pasty white skin of mine!



Later, my fiance’s parents and grandfather came over to have dinner and celebrate Mother’s Day. We had our first family dinner at our actual dining room table and everything was great!  


The only thing missing was my Mom, but since she had driven up the day before for the shower and my family was still staying at her house from Pittsburgh, we decided to celebrate another time.  She did so much for my shower, so I know she was exhausted and needed a day of rest! 

Now I’m ready to bang out another fantastic week.  It’s gonna be warm and sunny again (extra recess kids??) and there is still so much to look forward to.  Have a good Monday everyone!
