Feeling the love. Happy Mothers Day!

I wasn't supposed to be with my husband for Mother's Day but by the grace of the Navy God and a little bit of leave time, we had the most amazing weekend.

Let me start by saying that my husband rocks. He does every holiday like its our last and always tries to top the last one. We had a Mother's Day weekend here at the R house.

On Saturday I woke up late (I love getting to sleep in when J is home) and J told me to get ready. We went to lunch at Friendly's and got some great food and ice cream (Landon was a goof with his. He cracks me up). Then we went to one of my most favorite places here in New England....The Old Mystic Village. They have the most amazing shops and have a little pond where we love to go and feed the ducks (they sell duck food for pretty cheap at the general store). We fed the ducks and walked around all of the shops. It was a lot of fun (at some point J went and got me my gift and I had no idea. lol).

Here are the pictures for the Village. The big one is Landon at lunch with his Volcano Ice cream.

That night we finished with a big ol' family movie night. We did it right with all of the fixin's. Monkey bread, candy, popcorn, ice cream and a few new movies!

This morning I once again got to sleep as long as I wanted. I think I got up close to noon. lol.

When I got up I had a note saying the boys would be back in a bit. I hung out and had some mommy quiet time (aka uninterrupted TV time).

The boys came home and were all sneaky getting everything into the other room. I was called in to find the biggest display of gifts I could imagine. J got me a new Vera purse & wallet (If you know me in real life you know my love for all things Vera), a dozen and a half of the most amazing pink roses (that I was told Lan picked out for me), a dozen chocolate covered strawberries, a balloon, cards and a picture Landon drew me at school. I never expected so much. I feel over spoiled! lol.

After we hung out for a bit I was told to go take a nap and J would take care of the house before our company showed up. So I read for a bit and took a nice little nap with the puppers.

I feel so blessed to have such an amazing husband and son. I don't know what I would do without them. Even with out the spoiling, I feel like the luckiest women in the world.
I just had to share what my hubs just put on facebook.....
Justin R: So one Vera Bradley purse, a dozen roses, a dozen chocolate covered strawberries, and a card singing "your the best" is all it takes to get an afternoon full of video games....almost worth it. Happy Mother's Day Kim

Lol. I love the way he thinks.

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day.

I don't know if you read Pioneer Woman, but there is a recipe for AMAZING Monkey bread on her site. It's SOO easy too :)
