Coming at you a day late with a quick recap of my first Mother's Day and general life thoughts.
Sunday was such a wonderful day. It started with Bill taking the morning feeding with Cam and letting me sleep in, follwed by breakfast in bed. That alone made my entire Mother's Day!
As if breakfast in bed with my little family wasn't enough, he also brought me the most beautiful bouquet of Hydrandeas! I had been talking about getting some for the front porch and took that as they are my new favorite flowers, which they are :)
I just love the way the colorful arrangement brightens up our dark table! Bill also decided that I needed a day of pampering, so he gave me a spa package from Charles Penzone! This was completely unexpected! He is the best hubby! I can not wait to book my 'me' day!
After a relaxing morning, we went to my parents' house for brunch. My parents got Cam a doorway jumper and an excersaucer to keep him occupied! You would have thought it was his birthday or something! It was so nice spending time with my family and our FOUR generations! Yes, my Grandma was there and it is always such a pleasure to see her smile at Camden and vice versa.
Camden also attended his first birthday party! He had a great time! It was all baseball themed. I wish I would have taken more photos!
This weekend really made me start thinking about what's most important in life. I really want to focus more on spending time with my family and friends. I want to feel fulfilled by spending time with my loved ones instead of going to Target and spending too much money on things I don't need.
We started to talk about our plan to move in a few years to a larger home and what we would have to do in order to save enough money. I'm realizing that I spend a lot of frivolous money on things, when that money could be put in our savings account. Living in this 'blogging' and 'IG' world it is hard not to compare lives. I scroll through the endless fashion blogs and instagram pics of girls 10 years younger than me rocking all designer brands everyday. I just can't do that.
We want to work on making our current house a home. I absolutely love our new sectional! Now we are starting to look at patio furniture and realizing how expensive it is. I know it takes time to furnish a home, so I am trying to be patient. Plus, we are trying to be very smart with our money and not put anything on credit.
When I step back and look at my life, I realize that I have everything I've ever wanted. I have a loving husband that is a great provider and father. We have a home. We are healthy. AND, we have the most adorable little boy! What else do I need?
And now for some adorable baby pictures...
(This guy is obsessed with grabbing his feet!)
I'm kind of jealous of his flexibility!
That's all for now! Thanks for listening/reading :)
