Fantastic Mother's Day weekend!!

I know that I am one of the luckiest mom's on the planet!! First I woke up to the command that I could not get out of bed! There was too much going on in the kitchen so I hollered down to see if I could have a cup of coffee delivered, sure enough the cutest waitstaff showed up with a new travel mug full of piping hot coffee with just the perfect amount of half and half added. A few minutes later I am served breakfast in bed; scrambled eggs, turkey bacon, OJ and chocolate chip pancakes, awesome!

I was then treated to the most amazing help while I weeded the garden, was told to go out on my run, it was Mother's Day, take all the time I wanted. After 11 miles I was ready for a little more to eat and a little more coffee so the crew met me at Starbucks for a venti iced coffee and a pumpkin scone and most importantly a ride home!

After a short rest we headed to the pool for some swimming and playing, on the pool deck was a present, my friend got me some serious "bling" for Mother's Day, TYR "bling" goggles, they are pink and blingy and I love them!!! After swimming we were off to Baskin Robiins for some Peanut Butter and Chocolate ice cream, a perfect day of family and good food!

I sat out on the back patio smiling while I thought back on the day, it was good from end to end. It's funny, my grandfather passed away exactly one year ago today and while I expected to be sad I am pretty sure he helped to contribute to my fantastic day, in fact, I don't think that it was a coincidence that today was the nicest weather day we have had all year, he probably just wanted to be sure that we all had beautiful days, that is just the kind of guy he was; man I miss him...

I may very well be one of the luckiest people on the planet!
