One. To spend the day with my girls and husband. I am not sure what they have planned for me, but as long as it involves family time, I am game.
Two. To not have any blowouts like last year's Mother's Day (see here). Sutton decided to blow her diaper out all over her car seat when we were shopping in Trader Joes. I am talking all over and not the best way to end Mother's Day. At least her cute smiles made up for it.
Three. Sleeping in. Can I please sleep in until 8 am? Maybe even 8:30? Is that too much to ask? After all the traveling recently, teething and life, I just want to have a good nights rest.
Four. A Strange Bikini bathing suit. She makes custom bikinis in Reno and I am dying for one. They are a bit pricey, but it is custom, so it will fit to perfection. She posted this one last week and I loved it! Now to design my own.
Five. A Tiny Tags Dog Tag Necklace that has my girls names on each dog tag. I have been looking for something like this for awhile and then Madison did a giveaway a few weeks back on these and I knew it was something I wanted for my collection. Simple, small and elegant.
Here is Madison's Necklace with her daughters name on it (source)
Six. Something sweet. Yep. I want an amazing cupcake (hello Cake on Sunday) or pie to end my day. I found my love of sweets again once I became pregnant with the girls and as much as I deny that it is still here, it is and I want something sweet for Mother's Day. And to forget about all the calories I will consume. Calories don't count on Mother's Day.
Seven. A massage. Need I say more? Ok, a 90 minute heavenly massage. Please and thank you.
Eight. An adjustment. I have been dying to go to the chiropractor since before my hernia surgery and now that I am back home, recovered and exercising, I could use an adjustment. I am sure I will feel like a million bucks after it. Sure, I can make the appointment myself and pay for it, but that takes time and effort that I haven't put forth yet.
Nine. A gift card, so I can buy myself something. I have been pretty good with only buying what we need instead of splurging (hello I didn't really buy myself anything in Mexico or Israel) and I want to treat myself! So a gift card to J Crew, Pearl and Monroe Boutique, Lululemon, Nordstrom or anywhere else I shop.
Ten. Not really something I want, but something I want to remember. I want to remember this post that I wrote last year about my first Mother's Day. My girls are the reason I get the title of Mother and one I cherish so much.
