I mean seriously. This day, just for us, really is great.
I slept in a bit, while Dane got up with Rye (who was in our bed ...again). I listened sleepily as Dane helped Rye make me a card.
And I was happy to hear Rye's footsteps running toward my room about 10 minutes later. He was SO proud of the card he made. It was the best present ever.
Then we went to breakfast with my mom and sister, and despite an hour-long wait in a really crowded place, it was really nice. The food was delicious (Sara, I got the English muffin-brown sugar- apples entree you ordered last time. Yummy).
And then we came home and I organized my closet. I love the feeling after I'm done doing this. I hauled a pile out to my car to give away.
Then I went shopping (during Rye's nap. I do have my priorities in order). And I found my new favorite store.
New York and Company.
Where has it been all my life? Seriously, I've been disappointed with the Gap for the last couple years. The Mother's Day gods were smiling upon me today, though, by urging me into NY&Co. Thank you.
And now it's now. Rye is still sleeping. And that means I am sitting here, doing this, drinking a Diet Coke and eating rice.
Happy Mother's Day to everyone (especially you, Mother).
And here's my card. Rainbows drawn all by Rye.
And here's the inside.
