This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Celebrating Mothers

Today was my SECOND Mother's Day!! I worked last night so my dear hubby called me shortly after midnight to tell me "Happy Mother's Day" and see how my night was going. I *thankfully* had a very easy night and got to relax and chat with my friend Rachel! We are working on planning our joint family vacay to the Illinois River next month. More info on that later though ;)

When I got off work that morning I headed to my mom's house for--what else? Coffee and chit chat!! I wished her a happy Mother's Day and spent a couple of hours over there before heading home to go to bed. When I got up this afternoon, Nick had helped Brad "write" me a note saying that he loves me. I cut some fresh roses from our backyard and we all 3 headed down to Foster to spend the evening with Nick's family.

His mom cooked a delicious ham dinner for all of us. Some storms were close by so we spent the rest of our time there sitting outside talking while the children played and the clouds blew by. Then little boy started getting tired so we packed up and headed back home--he was asleep before we hit the highway! When we got home, I put him right to bed and while I was doing that, Nick surprised me with some fresh flowers and a nice glass of Moscato! We sat together on the back patio with a candle and enjoyed the breezy weather.

Tomorrow my mom is coming here at noon and I am taking her out to a fabulous little Italian restaurant here in Norman. Then we are going to come back to my house and work on our coupon boxes! We went to a coupon class together last week and we are both ready and gung-ho to beat the system and perfect the coupon game! We are still working on getting started, so when we make a bit more progress I will update on that also!

I hope all of the mothers out there had a fabulous day and remember--it's not really about all the gifts you get or getting taken out to dinner. It is about remembering how blessed we are to be a mother and to get the chance to earn a child's love. I am beyond blessed with my little miracle baby who has been so healthy, a great sleeper, and has his daddy's good looks! I know he loves me, and hopefully soon he will understand how much I love him!
