shake what yo mamma gave ya

Workout: distance run, 8 miles, 9:54 to 10:15 pace

I opted to get my run in this AM before our Mother's Day festivities began. I knew I'd have zippo energy once we returned home.

We attended service at my parent's new church, per mom's request :) did the family thing there. Then MattyB & I went to our church for our "newlywed" class ~ where the topic was personalities. We did personality quizzes...I'm melancholy/phlegmatic, Matty's sanguine/choleric. Literally, complete opposites.

Paul Abdul, yes, you are correct - - > opposites DO attract.

Afterwards we met up with the fam, for brunch at The Tampa Club.

MIL, grandma, mom

We kicked off brunch with gifts. Practicality was the theme this year, so they each got a personalized Tervis Tumbler with lid.

mimosa anyone?

YAY, buffet!

and appropriately named, "sexy grits"

and this magnificent beauty greeted you in the rotunda

Yes, I went and filled my plate 3 times.
Don't judge me.

Once I finished filling the gifted tumblers with "sexy" grits (since doggie bags are not an option)...we headed downstairs, without falling, for some photo ops.

Looks like a great day!

I think it's important to have a little "opposite" in the relationship - gives you a different perspective on things :)

Cute shoes! I definitely couldn't pull them off.
