Mother's Day Weekend

Thank you so much for all of your kind words and well wishes on our pregnancy! I'm still having a hard time wrapping my mind around the fact that we are actually pregnant, my body however is already reminding me. IVF bloat plus a pregnancy after twins means I'm already rocking that "is she pregnant or did she have too many beers" look. Really it just looks like I had too many beers. ;)

Onto our weekend. We had busy mornings all last week filled with appointments and mornings at work. Friday was the only day with nothing scheduled, so what did we do? If you guessed got out of the house early, you'd be right. We hit up the park and Target right out of the gate. By 10:45 we were all hungry, so it was off to Chipotle for early lunch. Then we went to Meijer, the whole reason we left the house, to pick up supplies for a Saturday night party. Friday evening was pretty chill, and we spent it eating leftovers and hanging out at home.

I woke up bright and early Saturday morning, so I made my work trip into the daycare and picked up Dunkin Donuts before the kids were even awake. Yeah, I was feeling pretty accomplished. Harrison and Brooke got in a lot of tablet time after breakfast while I cleaned the bathrooms and kitchen.

We made a couple more daycare trips, took naps, picked up balloons, and before we knew it, it was party time. Our friend David turns 30 today, (Happy Birthday, David!!) so we helped his wife host a surprise party for him. Brooke and Harrison were so excited to say surprise. They had been talking about the party all week, since we picked out a card, so we let them stay up late and enjoy the festivities.

We had a hot dog bar, amazing side dishes provided by our peeps, and lots of beer for those partaking. One of David's friends made a fabulous chocolate peanut butter cake. It was amazing, and I'm still thinking about the peanut butter icing. We played Guesstures, and I called it a night around 12:30. I think the party went until about 3:00 and judging from the lack of beer left in the cooler, I think everyone had a good time.

Harrison and Brooke were of course up by 7:30 on Sunday. Since Rob didn't come to bed until almost 4, we vacated the house early so he could sleep. Daycare trips, a park visit, and breakfast with my littles filled our morning. Someone at breakfast was kind enough to pay for our meal. I thought it was our friends we ran into, but they swore it wasn't them, so thank you to the lovely person(s) who paid for our breakfast. That was so sweet of you!

I was definitely in need of a nap, so we all took naps in the afternoon and then headed to Biaggi's in the evening for dinner. Italian food is always the way to my heart, although so is Mexican food. Brooke and Harrison filled up on bread and refused to eat the mac and cheese they so wanted. They were really good for the entire meal even though they were done eating before our food ever arrived. Three trips to check out the bathroom and two to go desserts later, we were headed home. H and B were asleep by 9, and I wasn't too far behind.

I hope all of you had a fabulous Mother's Day. Whether you're already a mom, play the role of mom, are a dog mom, are an expecting mom, or you are a mom in your heart and still waiting on your miracle, know that you are loved and appreciated every day, and especially yesterday. An extra special Mother's Day wish to my mom and my MIL! We love both of you so much!
