Mother's Day Love

This morning I woke up to the aroma of French toast, Banana's foster, and fresh whipped cream. It was beyond euphoric. With Unisom still in my system from last night, I literally stumbled into the kitchen where I found my cute man in his garments cooking up a storm for me. The table was set, and my very own "It's your special day" plate was where I normally sit, with a cute "Mom-to-be" card on my plate.

I wish I would have taken a picture! It was so darn sweet. He gave me chocolate covered nuts and a vacation this summer anywhere I want for 5 days. Spoiled?! Yes!

I can't help but think of my own mommy today and how wonderful she is. *Not in any particular order*
She taught me how to be a good wife.
She is the second person on my speed dial--can't help but talk to her every day!
She always serves me with a smile.
I don't deserve her selfless love towards me! 
When I'm having a bad day, she knows exactly what I need to make it better.
She's always up for a good shopping trip.
The love between her and my daddy is such a special gift to us kids.
She's the best example of being extremely competitive, yet loving and understanding at the same time.
She sets her own goals, and accomplishes them.
She spoils me rotten, and doesn't expect a thing in return.
She's so resilient--anything tough in life is just another stepping stone for her and she moves on.
She doesn't get offended, but can be a spit-fire when needed.
If I need anything, she sacrifices her own time and agenda to help and doesn't complain.
She's hilarious!!!!!!!!! It's never boring around Dodie :)
She can feed an army! She busts out huge meals for all of my cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents with the drop of a hat!
She's very easily satisfied and low maintenance--makes for a happy husband!
I love that she loves to drive big cars--Texas culture is embedded in her forever!
I love that she wears stylish TOMS (and other cute, trendy clothes); no one ever believes that she's a grandma!
She's beautiful!! My dad compliments her all the time on what a fox she is--and it's true!
She's an awesome nurse and loves her job.
She balances home and work so perfectly.

I could go on! 
I love you mom!


  1. don't you love moms? Mine is the second on my speed dial too :)

  2. Sounds like a great mother's day! And yes I am jealous of the 5 day trip :) Have fun though, and be sure to let us know where you pick!
