  1. Looks like a perfect day 🙂 Love your dress btw – where did you get it??!! I can’t believe the length is perfect! I have such a hard time finding maxi dresses that actually fit my 4’11.5” frame!
    Mother’s Day over here was a typical day, I got to sleep in, had a nice breakfast, then spent quality time with the hubs & boys. Finished reading the Hunger Games & finished it off by finding out my gift was a trip to Budapest for Memorial Day weekend! (we live in England right now so we’re not THAT crazy) 🙂

  2. What a wonderful mother’s day! Mine was amazing. We spent it at the zoo.

  3. Awww lovely pictures! Happy Mother’s Day!


  4. I want to be where you are 🙂 the water seems so relaxing. Mine was spent with my 3 wonderful children and amazing husband. It was perfect. Great Sacrament Meeting where the children and men sang to us mothers. Then off to home for some relaxin’ with the family. I too feel very lucky to be a Mom.

  5. Happy Mothers Day to you!

  15. I always love your pictures! 🙂 This was my first Mother’s Day and it was a quiet day (exactly how I wanted it to be, lol!). My husband took care of our 3 month old, let me sleep in, cooked dinner, and changed all the poopy diapers. Such a great day!

  16. You look adorable! I love that dress on you and your little belly is so adorable. We had a wonderful Mother’s Day complete with diamond earrings as a gift. Woop! Miss you friend. We need to get together.

  20. Great pictures. Thanks for sharing! I had dinner with my daughter and her husband and just took it easy all day! Renee

  21. What a great mother’s day! I love all the pictures and you look great! Our mother’s day wasn’t too exciting because my hubby and two out of three kids had the stomach flu. So I was just taking care of them! However, my hubby allowed me to leave and go shopping for a bit. I did take two kids that were decently well. LOL Oh being a mom. So worth it. I can hardly believe I’m a mom too

  22. i spent mother’s day with my momma! it was the best!

    happy belated mother’s day, friend!

  25. Happy Mother’s day Ashley!! 🙂 Times TWO!!! I’m not a momma yet, so I spent the weekend spoiling my momma along with my sister!
