Seattle Weekend - Happy Mother's Day!

To all the hard-working mamas out there -- Happy Mother's Day!

How did you spend your day?

Did you enjoy breakfast in bed? Maybe some much-needed pampering? Or just a simple day playing with loved ones?

Hubby and Kiddo let me sleep in this a.m while they picked out something I've been eye-ing for a while...

Do you read with a Kindle? They are so convenient -- all those books at the touch of your finger. I cannot put mine down.

Love the neat little package.

So ergonomic - fits right into my palm.

And thin as paper, light as air.

Then, we spent the afternoon in gorgeous sunlight, and planted three rose bushes -- one pink, one red and the other one orange. Just like our family, we hope they grow into something amazing.

Gardening is hard work, but the roses were totally worth it.

Lastly, we ended the day skyping our family in China and Canada.

So, now that you found out about my Mother's Day, how did you spend yours?

  4. Happy mothers day!! Yay for the kindle. I still prefer book, but I'm all for gadgets, lol! Enjoy it!!


  5. Sounds like a good day!

  6. I've not succumbed to a kindle yet - I still love holding a real book but it would be great for travel. The roses look beautiful - just like you x

  7. Looks like you had a lovely day with your family. Enjoy your Kindle.

  8. so sweet!! Very cool gift! <3

  9. Happy mother's day to you!! My siblings and I cooked dinner for our mom on saturday and then we took her out for brunch on Sunday, then the whole family hung out and watched a dvd.

  15. Hi there! I am so glad to see you are back and sorry to hear about the severe morning sickness! I hope things get better and you look great :)

  16. Had a great day with my mom Took her to a great italian restaurant and she just loved it! Got her flowers and some tea She already has a Nook but doesn't use it as much as I would like. She is not very tech savy. Just trying to enjoy her as much as I can. I agree, gardening is hard work but the end result is worth it!!
