Feeling Special...

This was a busy busy weekend. It was very fun & felt like it was all about me. Such a pleasant change since so much of my life seems to revolve around everyone else. Something that I am sure most mothers can relate to.

It started on Friday with the mad rush to finish cleaning up the house for the arrival of my mother & her husband. All the kids were heading off to spend the weekend with their other parents. After the house was clean & the kids were safely on their way, I headed over the the Bound Brook Elks club to drop off some last minute items & see how things were progressing for the Casino Ball.

After that I headed over to my local scrapbook store for a special sale & some make 'n takes. I bought some really fun stuff & started a project that I need to finish up. Hopefully later today. I won't post it for awhile because...shhh...it is a gift for my mom.

When I got home that evening my husband David had made me dinner & had a glass of wine poured. Talk about feeling pampered.

Late that night my Mom & her husband arrived. We only talked for a bit before I was just too tired to stay up another minute.

Saturday was the "Mom & Me" day...we got manicures & pedicures...got our hair done...& had a yummy sushi lunch just the two of us.
That night was the Casino Ball...here I am from a picture on my cell phone. We didn't have our camera & I am still waiting on some shots from my Aunt Beverly's camera.

Here is a picture of the plaque they presented me along side the flowers from my husband. He introduced me with a speech that brought me to tears. It was such a gift to have him support me & love me like that.

Overall it was a fun night.

On Sunday I brought my mom out to breakfast at the local diner before they headed back to Maryland.

Then I went off to meet my scrapping friend Jenn at another scrapbook store for more shopping & lunch. It was so great to get to know her better.

And believe it or not...when I got home I got cleaned up & headed out for a two hour board meeting for our swim club.

So like I said busy busy weekend...but it did make me feel special.

Today I am just finishing up odds & ends...a little scrapping, a little cleaning, catching up on blogs, & general things like that.

Hope you all had a great weekend too!
