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!

skrimps - and downtown Tampa Bay

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.

As I predicted, I have no energy. All that eating really took a toll on me :)

For all you moms, hope your day was filled with love & appreciation!

honoring mother theresa...

Not THE Mother Theresa, the humanitarian; but Theresa Ann, my mom.

The Lord couldn't have blessed me with a better mom!

1987 was a cute year for all went down hill starting in 1991

She's a great shopping partner...
shopping spree in Vegas

An even better partner in crime for grand openings...waking up in the wee hours of the morning to sit on a blanket, in the cold, in the dark...

 She appreciates the importance of visiting the "UK" on Royal Wedding day...
@Epcot for Will & Kate's nuptials

She signs me up to work events where I can become BFFs
with Candace Cameron Bure...
Extraordinary Womens, no i didn't become bff's with CCB

She even went to my bachelorette bash...

She's a mom, a friend, a confidant, a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, a willing helper, thoughtful, ridiculously giving, creative, & a great ATM.
ha, just kidding on that last one.
Happy Mother's Day, mom!
