Happy Mother’s Day

Steve, MJ, and Ty turned Mother’s Day into Mommy Week – I was so spoiled!  I received surprise gifts the three days I was at work from each of my boys...

On Wednesday, I received these beautiful flowers from MJ:

On Thursday, Ty sent me these delicious chocolate-covered strawberries from Shari’s Berries:

On Friday, my loving husband sent this gorgeous bouquet of flowers (baby #3 hasn’t figured out how to use daddy’s credit card yet)!

Each gift had a sweet, precious note attached.  I couldn’t have felt more special and loved. 

On Saturday night, MJ woke up with a terrible earache – he was so miserable he couldn’t go back to sleep.  Steve took him to urgent care Sunday morning, and he was diagnosed with a double ear infection…I felt horrible for him.  My sweet husband stayed home with the kids so I could go to mass.  We spent the rest of our rainy Mother’s Day relaxing and enjoying quality time at home together…it was just perfect.

MJ’s preschool had Muffins for Moms last week as well- we had a wonderful time celebrating all of the mommies!

Three weeks left until I receive the precious gift of becoming a mother for the third time.  It’s hard to believe it is so close.  Steve and I ran in our neighborhood’s annual 5K this weekend.  I’m not sure which is harder- running a very hilly course pushing a double stroller with over 65 pounds of kids inside (which Steve did) or running it 9 months pregnant!  haha

37 weeks


And to our moms - thank you for being the extraordinary women that you are.  We are thankful every day that you continue to be such a big part of our lives and the lives of our children.  We are beyond blessed.


  1. Only Jules would run a 5K at 37 weeks! LOL! Love it and miss you so much.


  2. Wow-what a week! Very special! Love you

  3. Happy Mother's Day! That's so awesome that you were so spoiled. I didn't run the Brookhaven Bolt as Emma had swim lessons but didn't even think about the fact that you may be running it! Super impressed that you ran it 37 weeks pregnant!
