Weekend Update - Mother's Day

Last weekend was a good weekend. On Friday, I had to leave work early so my parents could go to Maryland. They dropped her off at my work and then we headed home. Friday was a quiet night.

On Saturday, Husband woke up with Little Miss. Then, he went golfing so Little Miss and I had the afternoon together. We went to
Chick-Fil-A for lunch and then walked around the mall. The initial thought was to buy a Mother's Day present for my mom and cards, but we may have picked up an item or two for myself as well. Hey, I'm a mother! Saturday night, the In-Laws came over for dinner. We gave Mother-in-Law a bunch of little things - a bracelet with an "L" on it (for Little Miss and Grandma's name), a picture frame with Husband and me and Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law, a little keepsake box with stained glass "Grandma" and a pink glass heart pendant. It was a nice evening.

On Sunday, I woke up with Little Miss, but she mostly ran around for an hour and then, without
breakfast or anything, went back to sleep. So, we got to sleep for 2 hours more. Then, she woke up and got breakfast. We all hung around the house. Then, Little Miss and I napped for another hour before getting ready to go to Sister's house. I made 2 salads and we head out. We had the first cookout of the year (with my side of the family anyway) and it was delicious. We gave my mom a pendant set - a turquoise pendant that says "Mom" in Korean (my sister and I bought matching ones that say "Daughter"). I also bought my mom a picture frame that says "Grandmother", "Mom", "Daughter" and put photos of my mother and Little Miss, Little Miss and me, and Little Miss by herself. Lastly, because my mom has been pitching in and watching Little Miss while Mother-in-Law recovers, I bought her a little joke gift of ibuprofin, gel inserts, a candle, and antibacterial wipes (all good grandma things). Little Miss was exhausted from playing with Nephew all night so she fell asleep on the way home.

I worked most of the evening to help get a leg up on today and then went to bed myself. And it's another week...

However, things to look forward to -
Star Trek, Nephew's birthday party, and the Taste of Arlington.
