Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to my Mommy! I can never thank my God enough for the mother you have been to me and I am very grateful for the example you have given me as David and I embark on this journey with a little one on the way! Thank you! I love you!!!!!

Today was a great day! David and I drove separate cars to church and we took mine to lunch. When I went to get in the car, David had put some beautiful potted mums in the front seat. So sweet! David's plan was to take me to Olive Garden (my favorite), but even though we have seen tons of cars out there in the past, we learned it was probably just for training because they don't open until May 18th. :( We ended up going to Chili's which is quite ironic because on our first date, we were planning on going to OG in Mobile, but couldn't because the wait was so long and we had a play to be at at a certain time. We ended up going to Chili's that night too! That was a fun memory to relive! David did also make me a card and get me a present. You can see the card below. I LOVED it! He did such an AMAZING job! It's so cute!!! He had also warned me that the present wasn't the greatest mother's day present. ;) It was fine with me though! I really wanted a new shower head for our new bathroom and he got it! We tend to be very practical people when it comes to getting each other gifts. We want them to be used and not just sit there!!! Anyway, we enjoyed our lunch just chatting and even watching a little bowling on the screens there. I know, weird, huh? It just kept getting our attention! Anyway, the staff at Chili's had been handing out red carnations to all the mothers. I was hoping that I might get one. ;) Just before we were about to leave, our waitress noticed I was pregnant and said, "Happy Mother's Day! Congratulations!" I was so excited that she noticed! She disappeared and came back a moment later with a carnation for me! I was so excited! There is a picture of it below too. After we left, we got a Wendy's Cookie Dough Twisted Frosty. It's one of our favorites! It's so yummy! So, it was a great day! Thank you to my sweet and caring husband! I love you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As you can probably guess, this first picture is us in front of our new house on Mother's Day! This is just a little tease for you until I can get inside pictures put up. ;)

I guess I haven’t written anything about our move. We did move on May 2nd to Rocky Mount, NC. My Mom was here and was a HUGE help in getting many boxes unpacked before she left. As of today, there aren’t that many left to unpack, which I am definitely glad of! We need to get moving so we can get Caroline’s room ready for her!!!!! YAY! I will post pictures of the house as soon as it looks decent. ;)
