I hope everyone had a fabulous Mother’s Day weekend! We went to my parents house, and my buddy Karen and her husband came on Saturday and stayed the night so we could hang out. I hadn’t seen her since marathon weekend in January so it was great to catch up. Saturday morning, we went to eat brunch at a spot we always go to when they come into town, The original Broken Egg café. I t was pretty crowded, but we had a good time with great food.
After brunch the guys started playing Xbox…and literally didn’t stop until dinner. Karen and I chatted then went to get everyone snow balls! Most people call them “sno cones” but not here in the New Orleans area. You go to a snow ball stand. Just how we were raised! Anyway, they were amazing (I had wedding cake cream, my usual) and we were kind enough to bring them back for the boys.
My dad BBQ’ed for dinner and Karen made the most delicious dessert, ooey gooey toffee cake like at Liberty Tree Tavern in Disney World. It was amazing! Must. get. recipe. Let’s just say I was in sugar overload.
We chatted late in the night and left the boys up…you guessed it, playing Halo! This morning we had breakfast and chatted some more before they had to go back home. It went by too quickly!
We both have on #ClaimYourJourney shirts! Not planned, just great minds.
For Mother’s Day, my mom claimed she wanted a hand written card. Ok then. I busted out the crayons and drew her some stick people and Bobby drew on it as well. She absolutely loved it as you can see from this picture.
We ate lunch outside on the patio and enjoyed the last of the cooler weather, and then headed back home to a very messy might I add, house. I still haven’t finished unpacking from my trip. Oops.
I hope you got to spend some time with your loved ones this weekend like I did. Enjoy your Monday!
