Mothers day is just so much fun! It’s a day to celebrate the most important role in your life. This mothers day I’m feeling full (very full, actually) of happiness. I am so blessed to have such a healthy, vivacious little lady to love and squish on every single day, and I’m so lucky to have such a healthy little lady growing perfectly inside. To me, my life seems like the absolute picture of perfection. Well, of course it’s not perfect, but it’s a whole lot better than I ever pictured it would be, even with the hard times. Two little girlies and one cute husband who loves me very much seems as close to perfection to me as anything! I can’t imagine my life any other way. I am so lucky to be a mother, which is why this day is so special!
For an early mother’s day present (to myself) since I can’t reach my feet anymore, I decided to treat myself to a fabulous mani-pedi.
I was just slightly worried that would be my only special mothers day treat, since I had told Mr. Miller 3 weeks prior exactly what I wanted and when to order it. Well I asked him if he had gotten anything yet and he said in a very stressed out tone, “when is mothers day?!” I said “B.. seriously? It’s sunday! you didn’t get anything I suggested? I made it so easy for you… you always say you don’t know what to get so I tell you and then you don’t do that either. I already got you your father’s day present.” I’m more of a cheap, but sentimental gift person. I love things that mean a lot, and cost a little. I had gone through and found a few perfectly sentimental necklaces and things to recieve from my husband for mothers day that he could choose which one he wanted to get, doing all the hard work for him. Don’t get me wrong, Brady’s a great husband and has always pulled through, but he does require very little guidance :) I knew he would think of something (probably electronic) so I began to try to guess what he was going to get me, “is it a laptop? no… oh! a new monitor for my desk at work? That’s got to be it! Or maybe a cool new keyboard? It’s not an ipod or something is it?”
By Saturday Brady had figured something out and he wanted to give it to me then. I am definitely one to celebrate all weekend, and since I had just gotten my mother’s day mani/pedi, I thought I would let him give me my gift a day early. (because I’ll be honest, I wondered what on earth he had come up with in 2 days that suited a mothers day gift..) so he handed me a little pink box and I was excited he had thought “outside of the box” because I knew any electronics could not fit in this, but I was also slightly worried about his choice in jewelry and hoped I loved it because I encourage this type of thinking on his part. So I open the box and…
