{My First Mother's Day}

Tuesday, May 12, 2009 , ,

Sunday was my very first Mother's Day. I've joined the ranks of the maternal women who get to celebrate the joys of being a mother on a special day of the year. But I have to say... it's felt more like Mother's Week to me.

The fun started last Wednesday, when I pulled into the driveway, home from a shopping trip with Eis. I spotted a package on my doorstep. When I saw the box said on the side, I have to admit my first thought was, "Uh oh... did I drink too much and order something on Amazon again? Justin is going to kill me..." But I couldn't remember any recent "Heather's-had-one-too-many's" {heheh..} so puzzled, I unloaded our groceries and Eisley and set out unwrapping the box.

What I found inside surprised and delighted me. Martha's Encyclopedia of Crafts! A book I've had my eye on for a few weeks now.

Upon reading the packing slip I saw, "Happy Mother's Day! Love, Mom"

Thanks Mom! I love it and there's SO many crafts I'm already itching to try...
especially the marbleizing craft. I can't wait to try this one...
That was my very first Mother's Day gift. Ever.

On Mother's Day, we went to early church and then Justin left us for work. Sad :-( but a short day for him. We ordered Chinese food for dinner. Yum!
Oh, and I can't forget to mention - we also *all* got a really precious Mother's Day gift: a new nephew named Noah! (Say that five times fast.)

Yes, little Noah was born on Mother's Day and is healthy and cute as a button and we can't wait to meet him!

Monday I worked hard ;-) piping one hundred forget-me-nots for cake class.

Today Eisley's cousin Moriah (the new big sister) came over for a haircut with Grandma Holly. Afterwards Justin took us ladies (Holly, myself, and Miss Eisley) out to the Augustine Grill which was really lovely.
On Saturday Bea and I had lunch at PF Changs where she gifted me with an Anthro giftcard {be still my heart}. So, today a trip to the mall was in order. Justin promised to let me pick out something at Anthro too as a Mother's Day gift from him and Eisley. Ooh! A giftcard and a husband's debit card...

What'd I choose?

Well, I've had my eye on this silverware for quite a while now. A 5-piece set is $24 {which actually didn't seem like much when we saw a blah design 5-piece set at Williams Sonoma for $90!} and this silverware has been on my mind so much lately, I've decided to start a collection. Eventually I hope to have 8-10 sets. So I'll get a few here and there when I have a little extra spending money. Next month is my birthday and I heard from a little birdie that during my birthday month Anthropologie will offer me a discount, so maybe I'll pick up a couple more sets soon!

They don't look that special from a distance but...
They're so beautifully etched!
I'm way too much of a sucker for unique pretty things. Sigh...

But everything else put aside, THIS is the REAL reason why my first Mother's Day was so special.

My pride & joy.

My cheerful.

My lovely.

My Eisley. What a wonderful first Mother's Day.

Happy {late} Mother's Day to Mom, Great Grandma Erwin, Great Granda Sander, Grandma Holly, Adrienne, and Bea! I love you guys!
