I hope all the mommys out there had an amazing time with your families! We spent our Sunday splitting our time between the two mothers. We woke up semi-early for a Sunday (ok, early by our standards) and got up and made our favorite breakfast - cinnamon twists. Once those were done baking, I put the Mother's Day cookies into the oven to cook. These little guys were so cute, I couldn't pass them up when we saw them in the store.
Once the cookies were cool, we hopped in the car and headed towards Orlando for the day. First, we went to the hubby's folks house and spent some time with his dad while his mom was at the gym. Once she came home, she opened up her gift from us and showed us the gift Dan's older brother had sent in the mail. Then, we headed over to my folks house for an afternoon cookout. Well.... we were told to be there about 1 p.m. for lunch, but when we got there at 1:30, the ribs were just being put on the grill. No biggie except that we had to be back at my in-laws at 5 p.m. to head out for dinner. While we waited on food to cook, we gave my mom her gift. Both moms actually got the same thing this year. We split the batch of cookies between the two of them. And, we had ordered two photobooks filled with family pictures from our wedding. Each mother's book was filled with photos from their side of the family.
After the hubby ate some ribs and I had a sandwich (believe it or not, I'm not a BBQ fan), we headed back over to his parents' house and then headed out for dinner. Where did we go?
Yep, we went to the Cheesecake Factory! Definitely a special treat for us considering the only one close to us is all the way in Orlando, over an hour away. The hubby and I split a dinner since the portion sizes are so large. And then we decided to split a dessert too. What you see is their Reese's Peanut Butter Cup cheesecake. Yum!
Mother's Day was a pretty relaxing day, but I wouldn't have had it any other way. Who really needs all the pomp and circumstance? It's nice when we get to go back home and visit with everyone. I just hate always having to split our time between the two sides. There are just never enough hours in the day. I hope all of you had just as enjoyable of a day as we did and got to spend it with your mothers and family. Happy Mother's Day!
