Mother's Day & Other Happenings

I hope all the moms had a great day yesterday.  It was my first Mother's Day and we celebrated with brunch with my family - Tatum sucked on a bagel and then had some tastes of vanilla ice cream.  I had so many friends and family members reach out - it was so nice to be thought of! 

I wouldn't have wanted to celebrate my first Mother's Day with anyone else - the little boy who made me a mom and my own mom. 

The weather was awful yesterday so we took naps, caught up on DVR, I had some time to sit by myself and during a break in the rain we ran Tatum and Stella out for a little walk.  Derek and I had some appetizers on the couch last night after Tatum went to bed to finish the day.

Things have been quiet around here because we were on vacation last week - we had a great time in Charleston and Kiawah and from the looks of it while unpacking, Tatum's already ready to take off again! 

Now that spring is here, it's time for all sorts of spring events.  Right before we left for vacation I went with some girlfriends to a Breast Cancer event filled with cocktails, appetizers and shopping.  I came home with some monogram wine glasses and jewelry. 

With Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby both on the same day this year we combined for Cinco de Derby - it was such a nice evening with Mexican food, derby attire and lots of fun.

Friday night before a very low key weekend we had a gala at the local Penn State campus - it was a very nice event and another plus was that it ended early which meant an early to bed Friday night for this mama.
