Mine actually started on Thursday, because my best friend Amanda was in town on a brief break from graduate school. Amanda is one of my oldest friends. We've been besties since I was 6 years old. If you follow me on instagram then you saw these pics that Boomer snapped of us.
It was so nice to catch up with her. I'm a collector of friends. I keep you for years and years and years. Some people will pass in and out of your life, but people who have known you essentially your whole life are special. Amanda truly is my sister.
Friday night I went to go hand with my old school buddies. The newlyweds! It was the bride's birthday, and really I'm always down for activities with this crew. There was plenty of wine, silly dancing, a brief moment of karaoke....and I think my hair broke a lamp. (no joke). I lost my voice halfway through the night and woke up the next morning with lamb kabobs near my face. Awesome.
Saturday Boomer and I did a lot of cuddling and watched several Harry Potter films. I was never able to get into the books, but I love the movies and will stop whatever I am doing and watch them if they are on TV. Boomer finds this quite annoying.
Sunday morning Boomer woke me up bright and early at about 6:45 am to tell me "Happy Mother's Day Momma!!! Now go back to sleep, you can stay in bed as long as you want.'......which is sweet and all, but once I'm up, I'm up.

We did are usual pancake Sunday, and then got up and ready to go visit my mom and my grandma. We all exchanged cards and gifts. I got some awesome polka dot slippers, and a really beautiful planter with begonias! (I had to cover the poor thing last night though because we had FROST here in Ohio...like what the what?!?!?) My mom chose the Spaghetti Warehouse for dinner. Its an old warehouse in downtown/Franklinton that was converted to an Italian restaurant. Its pretty neat, and I used to go there a lot as a child. This was Boomer's first trip, so that was a cool full circle moment.
Sorry...no Mom's day pictures because my mom doesn't want me posting her on the bloggy. Which I totally respect.
Guess what guys?!?!?!
