Weekend Notes and Mothers Day

What a weekend!

Friday night was low key. We watched Dateline and Ian cooked dinner while I tacked bathtime and bedtime for Mill-Mill. He made us chicken soft tacos and refried beans. We even bought margarita mix and tequila and then just got lazy and didn't open either (don't you worry, I did work on a bottle of delicous sauvignon blanc, my favorite).  

Saturday, our big activity of the day was going to Caroline's birthday party which had a cute Mickey Mouse theme. I made the girls matching hair accessories that morning so that they could dress the part.

Later that afternoon, I was on a hair accessories kick and I made Charlotte a bow on a headband to match Camille's hairbow. Both of these are the Lilly ribbon in the "Giddy Up" print, perfect for the Kentucky Derby that day!

My second Mothers Day was a relaxing one -- a very, very good one. When we woke up, Ian took Camille out to the kitchen, giving me some time to just relax in bed with my iPad and a snoozing newborn next to me. He later came in with some fresh-squeezed orange juice and coffee. And later, he and Camille popped back in with a sweet card. She learned the phrase "Happy Mothers Day Mama" quickly and repeated it over and over, along with "Happy Mothers Day Dada" and "Happy Mothers Day Baby Chah-yette" - haha!

We tried to beat the crowds by going out for an early breakfast and then doing lunch and dinner at home. George's opened at 9 and we were one of the first groups in the door. The brunch buffet was amazing -- the usual suspects plus some really nice additions like beignets, croque monsieurs, oysters on the half shell, and creme brulee pots. It was not inexpensive, but for a once-a-year treat, it was worth it. 

My only other wish for the day besides a meal with the family was a nice walk around the neighborhood. I recently picked up this double stroller on a local resale site, so I popped the girls in it around 4 when the weather was starting to cool off just a tad and we took a nice stroll. 

We have a busy week ahead, mainly today through Wednesday. I keep telling myself that if we can make it through Wednesday, we are golden. 

Tonight I do get a nice little break -- I am getting together with some girlfriends for dinner out. Bring on the margaritas (well, margarita) and girl talk ... 8pm can't get here soon enough! Mama's gonna break out her Spanx and red lipstick!

  11. Sonora required Father's Day to be lauded on the primary Sunday in June, since it was close to her dad's birthday. HappyFathersDayquotes Or maybe, the primary Father's Day celebration happened on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington. In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson made the third Sunday of June Father's Day.
