Hello Mothers Day

Hello beautiful Mother’s Day.
Hello to my precious itty bitty baby boy.

 Hello to pretty packages wrapped for my favorite mothers.

 Hello to yummy appetizers.

 Hello future PGA tour winner–and lefty.

 Hello Mother’s Day flowers.

 Hello to my favorite Mother’s Day gift–a 2 hour mid-day nap on Grandma’s couch.

 Hello to a yummy BBQ dinner.

 Hello to cheesy toddler smiles.

Hello to my adorable gap toothed smiley boy.

 Hello to the random bass my Uncle Joe caught from my Mom’s dock.

Hello sunset kisses.

Hello peace and quiet.

Hello perfect, simple, and beautiful Mother’s Day Sunday.
Sometimes I can’t believe I’m a Momma.
Boy am I lucky.

    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) 🙂

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    I adore your dress and sweet baby bump! Where did you get it (the dress, not the bump… I know how that happens because I have one too!)??
