Happy Mother's Day!

To all the Mommas out there, Happy Mother's day! To all the kids out there, go tell your Mommas thanks and that you love 'em!

We had a delightful Mother's Day in our house, and we celebrated all day! First we went to a (super duper) early 8:30 mass and then went to a little local breakfast dive that I had never been to. It was very cute and very close to our house. We got home and then my mom opened her gifts. Here are the two we picked out:
This is the Iris Skort. It is super cute in person, except the piping along the sides is yellow. Very cute and our momma loved it!

We also got her a Murfee! It is her first one and she loved it! When we were in the store about a week ago she pointed out that she like this print, and without even knowing, two weeks before my sister had mentioned the EXACT same one! Great minds think alike, huh?


For dinner, yours truly cooked (for the first time...a real meal! Not baking and not Easy Mac or Cup O' Noodles!!) shrimp scampi! I found the recipe on foodgawker (shocker, I know!) but it had been adapted from Ina Garten, my favorite FoodNetwork chef. Here is the website I used! I didn't eat it but the shrimp people in my family assured me it was good. I got a few tips about making it next time, but my cooking confidence went up a few points for sure!! As I look at the photo now, I'm realizing I forgot the parsley...oops! Oh well, lessons learned, right?

Happy Mother's Day to all my fabulous blogging Mommas out there!!
