My First Mother’s Day

Alright, so in my humble opinion, I believe that it was my second mother’s day (last year and this year), BUT this was my first mother’s day to spend with my boys. Last year, I was about 17 weeks pregnant with baby. We didn’t know his gender and I was still waiting for that moment to feel him kick.

I digress…

These were the faces I woke up to that morning!

My Handsome Man

May 13th, 2012 was one of the most special days of my life. Matt and Noah (mostly Matt all Matt) were so THOUGHTFUL. Matt had been planning this day for some time. First of all, Matt made a surprise appointment for me to get my hair done. I’ve been kind of fed up with all the hair loss, drabness, and lack of life hair that I have been rocking since about January. He made surprise arrangements for me to get it cut, colored, and styled. It was SO fun. I have never done anything to my hair, and this girl was awesome. I even was able to enjoy a mimosa during the appointment and felt like quite the princess. I had two hours of just me time, which I rarely get.

 Afterwards, he surprised me with lunch. We usually don’t eat out except on date nights, so this was super sweet and I was STARVING. I chowed out on a delicious burger from Austin Java while sitting outside. The weather was perfect. It was amazing and Noah was loving people watching. He wanted some of my burger, but I told him red meat was not yet apart of his not. He understood-not. Homeboy was grabbing at my plate all lunch.

The new do!

 After eating, we drove home and Matt surprised me with me new running kicks. Yes, I am starting to get back into running and boy was it time. The tread was low on my other pair- I was starting to feel it in my heels. We then walked to Randall’s to buy me some BLUE BELL- my favorite treat after dinner. Oh yes, and it was ON SALE. I found the last of my favorite flavor- dessert trio. It was perfect.

We made dinner together and talked about our favorite memories. We tried a new dish that involved cinnamon, Romano cheese, noodles, and ground beef. It was very unique, and I think I will make it again. I’m now trying to add variety to our little menu in the Clem house.

My Boys with our groceries

We went to bed fairly early. We were both tuckered out from waking up at 6 a.m. That’s a long story, but Matt was able to go serve the homeless downtown with our small group. He took my place- which was so thoughtful, and I was glad to have the extra time to just relax in bed and read.
Overall, it was a wonderful day. I am so blessed. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for the next mother’s days to come.
