My Half Mother's Day

I have to give props to my husband who on Saturday said to me on his very own, ‘So I guess you actually kind of get to celebrate Mother’s Day tomorrow.’ Why yes, hubby, don’t mind if I do. He called it my Half Mother’s Day and if it means sleeping in and a yummy breakfast feast that I don’t have to cook then I am all in. I don’t think he even knows my blog name so I know that there is no way he read it on my bump date so I am even more impressed that he actually came up with it on his own.

We had a pretty lazy Sunday (shocker) with a sinfully long sleep in, a little Netflix bingeing, and then a family dinner.

My mother went away for the weekend and visited my older sister (pretty sure my nephews were the main draw there and I don’t think my sister minded one bit if it meant she could enjoy a bit of freedom) so we were only on the hook for a date with my mother-in-law. We were thinking of taking her somewhere for lunch and then got a call that there was going to be a big Sunday dinner so we joined his two brothers and their families, his grandma and his mom for one of the best prime rib dinners I have had in a long time. I don’t know if it’s because I’m pregnant but the food was AMAZING, and the mashed potatoes were out of this world – I was told the secret is to add warm milk, not cold. I hope I remember that the next time I’m making them.

It’s so crazy to think that next Mother’s Day I will be celebrating with my own little nugget. And yes I realize that the sleep in will likely be a distant memory… but I will be expecting a delicious breakfast feast!

The weather this weekend was amazing and I managed to get this guy to take a selfie with me!

A lazy Sunday morning... and he would kill me if he knew I posted this but how cute are they??
