This will be my 6th Mother's Day as a Mom of two and I can't tell you all how lucky I feel to have been blessed with two happy healthy children.  Reins is 6 and Addison is 4 1/2 and they are starting to truly understand what Mother's Day means.  When asked, they both say, "it's a special day for Mommy"!

Both mine and Peter's Mom's live out of state so we typically celebrate Mother's Day just the 4 of us and it always ends up being a very special day.  In years past, we haven't busied ourself with too much, after all, just being together is what is most important.  I've always woken up to lots of snuggles and some very sweet cards on Mother's Day.  In the past we have gone to church, taken a long family walk, played and played some more, and then ended the day with dinner out.

My focus is always on our children on Mother's Day...after all, they are the sweet little beings who have given me the privilege to be their Mommy.  So typically, whatever they want to do on Mother's Day is what we end up doing!  Being with them and counting my blessings is what I enjoy doing most!

I asked Reins and Addison the other day what they wanted to do on Mother's Day this year and Reins said "play and go to special dinner" and Addison said, "maybe we can eat doughnuts"!  My reply..."I think we can do all of those things"!  It's the simple things and I love that they just want to spend time all together as a family.

Peter has already shared with me that I need to be dressed and ready to go on Sunday morning and when asked, "how should I be dressed" his reply was "dress up in a pretty dress".  Thankfully I have the perfect dress to wear this Mother's Day and it is this gorgeous "Jardin Maxi Dress" from the new Eva Mendes Mother's Day collection from New York & Co.  It's dressy yet not too dress and it is perfect for just about any occasion.  Not to mention, it is super comfortable so I'll be able to play with my babies and pick them up without caution.

To complete my Mother's Day look, I've added this dainty layered "Madre" necklace also from the Eva Mendes collection.  It is the perfect compliment to such a pretty dress!

No matter how you will be spending your Mother's Day, I do hope it is very special for you!  Maybe there will be a special dinner and some doughnuts (or two) on the horizon for your special day.

Wishing all of those who celebrate a loved filled Mother's Day and as always, thanks so much for stopping by!

  11. Your Mother's Day sounds so special. I've always wanted to spend the day doing something for myself, but you have me rethinking it. I may just spend the day playing in the floor with my little guy or watching a movie with my teens.

  12. I love hearing about your Mother's Day plans!! What a sweet and special day! We always celebrate Mother's Day as a family and I always get a little something from my sister-in-law and now since she has a baby I will get something for my sister.
