With the little one being sick and hive-y (yep, pretty sure I just made up my own word there), I didn’t think Mother’s Day was going to be so great. Last Mother’s Day was pretty uneventful as I was still pregnant and we had a lovely brunch at the Polish Center. Yum! I sort of wanted to start a tradition of going there every year. So when I asked my husband on Saturday night what time our reservations were for and he answered with, “What reservations?” I knew that tradition had just been flushed down a big fat toilet. He didn’t listen to me when I told him that’s what I wanted to do. He didn’t make reservations. And reservations would be scarce and a shot in the dark if we tried to make them the morning of Mother’s Day. Soooo…I said, “Let’s go to Outback. I could totally go for a nice steak.” So we did! Saturday night at 5:15 p.m. you wouldn’t think there would be a wait…but there was. Only a half an hour though. So we had a nice dinner (They had a fun ‘Mum’s Day three course meal’) and headed home. Leilani ate like a champ – tried some filet mignon with some garlic mashed potatoes. Her new theme song is ‘Fancy’.
*This is how she fell asleep on the way home from IL earlier that day – I just had to share this. Someday she’ll hate me for posting it I’m sure
When I got home, there was a vase full of beautiful roses in pinks and orange. I was told Leilani picked them out for me. 🙂 And then I was told that the rest of my present was in the bathroom. Intrigued, I slowly opened the door to a yummy aromatherapy candle burning, a bottle of wine, some LUSH bath bombs, some movies, a red rose and my favorite hand lotion from LUSH. And a very nice card. My husband outdid himself. He said this was so I could continue my relaxation.
