Mother's day is amazing. I think it should be more than once a year. Even though it is exhausting for us kids our moms are so worth all the love and work that goes into their one day. I'm sure I will love it even more when I'm a mom but seriously, I love mothers day. Chris and I hosted a brunch for his side of the family this afternoon which was lots of fun. It's always a good time! We love to entertain. This afternoon we went over to mom and dad Parker's house and hung out with them and grandma and grandpa. My family is nuts, I wish we could video tape our family get togethers. We played Wii (I guess that's how its spelled?) all afternoon, golf (I beat Chris!), bowling (my favorite), and tennis(which I suck at). I'm not very good but we all had a blast at it. We ended the night in the hot tub, the whole family in there listening to Michael Buble' and the guys with their cigars. I love my family, they are amazing and so much fun. It's been an awesome weekend. We could not have asked for more. Got to spend time with our families and relaxed! We are ready for whatever this week has in store for us. Bring it on.

I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace.

And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
