Mothers Day Weekend

My mothers day weekend started with a trip to Charlotte Saturday to pick up my daughter. We figured this would save her on gas since her boyfriend will be joining up with us on Sunday and he would take her back with him.

Once we arrived in Charlotte, my daughter buzzed us into her apartment so we could help her with her things. Yes, she stays one night with us and she packs for a week. It’s a girl thing. Once we were in, she had me a dozen mixed donuts sitting on the counter along with dish of bacon. 


She had went to a bacon festival the night before and she knew how much I love bacon. I had all the bacon and a donut eat before we got back home.

Her boyfriend got me some flowers for Mother’s Day which I thought was so sweet. ummm yes, hes beginning to get real sweet with us. Wonder why? Time will tell. But he is absolutely a sweet heart.


We spent Saturday doing some shopping. Not really buying anything. Just looking around. Nick told us to go without him and enjoy our mother/daughter time. Later he took us out to eat Mexican food and then Ice Cream. I was stuffed and tired. 

Sunday I woke up to a sweet card and this beautiful necklace along with a manicure gift card some eye shadows and lipsticks. 


After breakfast we headed off to church to honor God and mothers. It was a wonderful service.

Here is a little funny about church this morning:
They called all the mothers to the front of the church to give us all a little gift. This year we received candy dishes full of candy. Well, they were not exactly candy dishes but rather Margarita glasses. The pastor realized this after the fact and told us all not to get any ideas!  I found this so funny as I have never seen my mom hold a margarita glass until a day in church! Ha ha. It was sweet though.

After church Nick took us to Sweet Frogs yogurt shop then to look at some beach chairs I had been wanting. 
We ended the day with a family dinner for Mom at her favorite Chinese restaurant. 

It was a great weekend!

  3. Sounds like a nice Mother's day you had.

    I'm assume you're a Southern Baptist, I guess the remark comes from the church's stance on drinking. I also heard dancing is a no-no (though I hear this depends on the church leadership as well). I heard a joke that S. Baptists don't believe in premarital relations because it leads to drinking and dancing.

    1. Yes I would say im southern Baptist. The “no dancing” is a very old rule. Most baptist churches are big into music and ecourage dancing. We do not believe in premairtal relations because we believe in the Bible. Though you will often see church people drink, we do not believe in doing anything that alters the mind such as getting drunk or drugs. Again, we go by the Bible.

  6. Ah I am late, but I always enjoy your mom/daughter tales. Sherry had hoped for a daughter to share life with as she had with her mother. They had a like relationship as you and yours. She ended up sharing her sisters!
    I am glad you had a great day, you mothers deserve it.

  8. Your Mothers Day sounds delightful. My sons and I spent happy time together at my house on Mothers Day. Now I am a widow, one important person is missing, but we celebrate together as life goes on. Each son brought me a huge cheerful bouquet and we had a feast together.
