How was your week?
Since last year's gift was the treadmill, that means Mr.Blondie has a free pass for the next 10 years or so when it comes to Mother’s Day. All I wanted this year was a couple hours to myself on Saturday morning to go for a nice run outside and get some stuff done around the house.
One of my good pilot-wife/mommy friends came over for lunch later that afternoon with her snuggly little baby boy. Emily was totally enamored with him. Maybe we’ll give her a little brother or sister to play with soon…or her maybe we’ll just have to have baby Conner over a little more often, teehee.
Mr. Blondie surprised me with flowers, and the three of us went out for a casual dinner on Saturday night. He also bought all the ingredients to make pancakes with fresh raspberries and whipped cream for breakfast on Sunday. However we slept in a little too long and were short on time, so I ended up preparing them while he got ready for work. I appreciated the thought, and the fact that he negotiated his way through a grocery store all by himself. I’ve got a keeper :)
My mommy is on her way down to Atlanta later today. She’s staying for a few days to help out, since Mr. Blondie will be out of town a little longer than usual this week for some airline stuff. Even though I’m now a parent myself, I still enjoy being a kid sometimes. I’m so excited to see her!
While I wouldn't have minded a having a flute of champagne in my hand too, I certainly enjoyed this type of bubbly yesterday
