Right now Erik and I are winding down after a busy day. We are watching old seasons of Mad Men and lounging on the couch. It is a good end to a great day.
Mother’s Day is really special. I love having a day to celebrate my love for my daughter and to share with my mom how much I love her and how awesome she is. Not that we shouldn’t do these things everyday. We should and for the most part, I do. The photo above is with my mom. Many people have commented that Juliet and my mom look alike. They adore each other and it is really sweet.
On Mother’s Day I get breakfast made for me plus all the dishes get done. Erik made hash browns, pancakes, eggs and bacon. We also had (non-alcoholic) mimosas. Juliet ate a whole pancake! After breakfast Erik and I went to church and then had my family over for lunch. I was hoping we could have a picnic like last year, but it was pretty chilly in MN today, so we kept the party indoors.
We ate artichoke dip, sandwiches, salads, fruit, chips and strawberry angel food cake.
We had a fun time with the family, laughing at toddlers saying funny things and marveling at their cuteness. By the way, Juliet says “get down” now. She picked it up from me always yelling at the cat to “get down!” when he jumps up on the counter and table. She even started wagging her little finger. It’s pretty amazing hearing her little toddler voice using multiple words.

Do you like my earrings in the photo above? Blue Nile sent them to me and also a second pair to giveaway to a reader. They are super cute Leaf Chandelier Earrings in sterling silver. I’ve worn them a few times in the week I’ve had them and have gotten a lot of compliments.
