Question for the blogging moms

This one is going out to all the blogging moms out there. Faced with a day full of dishes, laundry, grocery shopping, and maybe a nerve-tingling stop at a local park, how on earth to you muster up a blog that is not so mundane it brings on tears? I'm not complaining, I am being sincere!

Today is going to be one of those days. We have a long weekend coming up, and I am faced with getting everyon'e clothes cleaned, pets ready for our absence, and countless other completely boring tasks. So what on earth can I blog about? I guess that's the challenge, huh? To find the exceptional in the every day?











What I can post about is my wonderful Mother's Day. We started the day off with a delicious brunch. The good thing about being pregnant and having brunch is that I really got my money's worth! I think I out-ate Matt. And the girls gave me such thoughtful love-filled presents. Sydney gave me a beautiful wallet she decorated with stickers and fabric pens. It was her idea, because my wallet is falling apart - so that wallet is really in my purse, and I really use it. :) Fiona made me a gorgeous green bead necklace, which I have been wearing all week. And..my husband, through an unfortunate miscommunication, gave me my present early: a bright shiny Kitchenaid! I love it! Go ahead, call me domestic. It's not as flashy as lucky Patty's present, but it'll do. Hope you all had great Mother's days, too!

I don't dare ask for a KitchenAid. Then I would be expected to use it. LOL! Not that I have the power for it anyway. ;) I want one cause they are cool, and maybe one day would want to use it. :) LOVE the wallet!! How cute is THAT!?

I usually post when I am online for something else anyway, or photos are downloading. Always multitasking. :)

Kitchenaids are the best! I have a hand-me-down, but I still love it. One day I'll get my very own red one:)

I'm glad you had a happy mothers day!!!
