mothers day 2011

Being a mother is the greatest job in the world.
I am so blessed to have my Sweet Pea and thankful that she changed my life when and how she did.
I don't know what or where I'd be without her.
This year was Mother's Day was a bit different.
My girlfriends and I decided a few months back to take a day off and indulge in a spa day at Glen Ivy Hot Springs.
I invited a slew of my "mommy friends" to come and hang out at the Spa for the day and just RELAX.
Something most of us women fail to do on a consistent basis what with all the mothering we have to do.
The lovely thing about Glen Ivy is that because it's a hot springs you don't necessarily have to have any treatments done to enjoy your day!
However they were offering some great specials and thanks to my wonderful Babe and my dad I was able to book a  Spa Detox package!!
80 glorious minutes filled with a Swedish massage, a sugar scrub and a body wrap plus a visit to the Grotto.
ahhh!  I enjoyed every minute of it.
My therapist was a-mazing and super nice to boot.
We actually hugged at the end of my treatment we felt so connected!
Is that weird?
After that it was time for lunch w/ some YUMMY nachos and of course "beverages".

We then spent some time lounging at the pool and then headed off to the famous moisturizing Grotto ( not that Grotto) for some extra skin love.
We finished the afternoon off basking in the sun and just enjoying each other's company.
It was a day well spent w/ friends, yummy food, fabulous weather and drinks!

Sunday I slept in and awoke to the sound of the text message alert on my phone......lots of love from friends old & new , near and far.....I opened up my gift from my Sweet Pea and was so excited to see a decoupage vase w/ tissue paper flowers!

I made a similar one as a child and have been patiently waiting my turn to receive one of my own!
My mother came over for a lovely dinner of panini's and Bellini's and we had a lovely evening just laughing and hanging out.
We only took a few photos (stupid broken camera) and not one of the 3 of us!!
I was so happy to have gotten to spend time with both Quenisha and LaShaunda - not only did they get along famously we laughed until our sides were sore and have plans to hang out again and soon!!
Love those girls!
It was a great weekend and I'm already looking forward to what the rest of the month will bring!!

Happy Mothers day to all!!
