Mothers Day.

For mothers day my mom had us all over for dinner. My grandparents also came over to celebrate the holiday with us. We got my mom a wagon for all her scrapbooking supplies. She also got a certificate to get a massage! My cute nieces made all the grandmas a cute painting, they loved it! And my mom got me a bracelet that each year I will be getting a charm to go on it for Mothers Day.
We went to church with my mom and all the girls got some flowers.
The day before Griff gave me a Gift Card to go to Leatherbees!!
So even though I am not "technically" a mom yet... I got spoiled.
I do think that being pregnant with sickness, food cravings, mood swings, hip and back pains, not being able to eat some of your favorite foods, not being able to sleep on your stomach, and hot flashes is defiantly considered the start of being a mom.
After dinner at my moms we went to visit Griff's mom. We gave her a Gift Certificate to go get her nails done at her favorite nail salon. She also got some fun gifts from her family.
Once gifts were given we had our annual Sunday Movie Night!!
What a fun Mothers Day.
Leatherbees Night out for Mother's Day!
I am learning more every day about what moms do for their kids. I see what my mom and Griff's mom do for all of us and it blows my mind how amazing these ladies are!! I love them very much. This past week has been a very difficult one for Griff and me and my sweet mom and sister have both stepped up and mothered me to the end. They have been there for me with comfort and guidance. They have really been amazing to Griff and I and I could not thank them more. Moms are the best and I am so thankful to have these moms in my life to teach me and help prepare me for when our little one makes her entrance. I am not going to lie I am nervous for everything but at the same time I could not be more excited. I know that you learn and grow as time goes on, so I will figure it all out. I am very blessed to be able to be a mom and I can't wait for her to look at me as her mom and put all her trust in me. It will be scary at times but the most wonderful feeling too!!

The Zoo

A couple Fridays ago my mom, sister, Laryssa, Jaelyn and I went to the Zoo!! We stopped and picked up some lunch to eat once we got inside. We were able to see all the fun animals. The monkeys were my favorite. I love how cute they are. Laryssa loved every animal she saw. She would say "the ___ are my favorite" it was so cute!! It was a perfect day to be out, at first it was chilly but it warmed right up. We were able to see all the animals, then we headed to the car to head home. But first we stopped at McDonald's for some ice cream!!!
What a fun day out with the girlie's!!

Little Beau Man's Blessing

May 6th was Beau's special day. Dev and Meg moved back that weekend from Arizona and had Beau's Blessing at the Bland's home ward. Scott is the Bishop so it was very special to have him preside the meeting. All of Megan and Devin's family and close friends were their. Devin did such an amazing job blessing his little one. He made me cry. It was even more special knowing that Griffin will be doing the exact same thing once our sweet girl is here!
After the blessing we all went back to the Bland's house for a very delicious breakfast. We hung out and caught up with everyone.
What a gorgeous and special day this was!!
