Celebrating My "First" Mother's Day

My weekend did not start off the way I had wanted it too, I went to bed on Friday night and plugged in my phone on my nightstand (like I always do).  I saw that it wasn't charging and was getting angry.  I got up, tried and different charging cable and again, it wouldn't work.  I gave up with a whopping 31% battery remaining on my phone and went to sleep.  I was awoken by my wonderful cat at 5:30 am on Saturday morning because you know he's hungry and he thinks I will forget to feed him.....(that's never happened by the way).  I got up, fed him and tried to mess with my charger again.  Saw that overnight while the stupid phone was "sleeping" that is used up almost the remaining battery charge (5% was left) and got even more angry.  I tried a different plug in the wall, tried the 2 cables I had on hand and nothing worked.  I eventually went back to sleep and woke back up to a dead phone.  The "googler" in me went on the internet to find out why my phone is all of the sudden not charging.  I had plans to go to the furniture store with my mom to get a dresser but told her it would be on hold until I could get my phone fixed. Andy left me his phone while he went out to run an errand so at least I wasn't in the house with no way to communicate if need be.  Someone on Facebook mentioned to me that I should try a brand new cable and plug (purchase one from the store).  I thought, "Why not, it might save you in gas and time in driving all the way to the Apple Store".  Let's not forget that my phone was out of warranty AND I was NOT able for an upgrade on a phone with my contract until 6/1/2014 (only 21 days away.....)  I called Andy to tell him that I was going to Target and he suggested I try the cable that was in my car.  I started my car, plugged in my phone and heard the glorious "Ding" of my phone connecting and charging.  That sound was bliss.....  

NOTE: please do not tell me just to get an android phone because Apple sucks, because I am not going to agree with you.  I had an android phone for 2 years and HATED IT!!!!  I regretted that phone and all I wanted back was an iPhone.  I am not a follower of Apple, I just like the iPhone better than any other android device out there.

So let's get back to the rest of my Saturday!

My mom did end up picking myself and Andy up and away we went to the furniture store.  Let me tell you, picking out a dresser for baby boy was MUCH harder than I expected it to be.  I am really glad that Andy went with us to help make the decision.  The dresser is beautiful and I cannot wait to show you all when I reveal the whole nursery!  My mom and I ran the usual errands (Target and Dierbergs) and stopped by my brother's house to let his dogs out and run around.  

Sunday ("Mother's Day")
This was my first time ever celebrating being a Mother and it felt strange.  Not in a bad way, but because baby isn't here yet, so I didn't have a little man to snuggle and love on.  Don't worry I got some snuggles from the fur-babies!  Andy gave me a card that he wrote in and then a printed photo of my gift.  He had to order it and it wasn't in yet.  I of course, being the pregnant, emotional girl, cried.  :)  Happy tears though!  I can't wait till my necklace gets here and I can wear that!
I had my mama over for breakfast!  We had pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, and cheese danishes (that I hand made). It turned out perfect and we were all full from the good food!  She opened her Mother's Day present, which was a pair of sapphire earrings.  She LOVED them!! The sapphire is also the birthstone for the month of September, so here's hoping baby boy arrives sometime in September!  If not, they are still beautiful!

Dinner we had over at Andy's parents house.  We decided to take his mom out to Home Depot to get flowers for the house.  I think every year we have gotten her flowers and this year was not exception.  It was really hot and muggy that day, so spending 30 minutes outside, we were all drenched in sweat.  Welcome to SUMMER weather, I'll be in the pool 24/7!  LOL!  We ate flank steak, baked potatoes, and salad.  It was all so good!  Normally food isn't that good to me now, nothing sounds good and I just eat to eat, but dinner hit the spot!  

We spent the rest of the evening in bed by 7 pm.  We were exhausted and I have been dealing with some swelling of the left foot.  Only the left food too.  So up it was propped along with some ice to ease the swelling.  It did help, but I am going to have to remember to get that foot propped up more often.
Left, swollen,  Right, GOOD!

My beautiful mama and I on my wedding day!
