Guess what I got for Mother's Day!

I am really looking forward to this weekend.  We are having a party, I love to have party's!  The best part will be my Coconut Dream Cake which I will share tomorrow.  I am making baked beans and Daddy will do the pork picnic.  He smokes it all day and then we eat.  Oh and yummy pasta salad.  
Our special Mothers Day has always been me do nothing, no diapers no bottom wiping no dishes no cooking no making beds are you getting the picture.  Totally being waited on and I can't wait.
Daddy makes me breakfast in bed and this year I have requested a french toast casserole.  Daddy is a really good recipe follower so I know it is gonna be good.
I also know what I am getting for Mother's Day and here is a picture....

Yes that is the new Vera Bradley Yellow Bird Purse in the Villager!  Now don't get me wrong I like surprises, kinda.  No I am lying to you all.  I do not like surprises.  I like to get what I want.  And I take every opportunity/holiday to let Daddy know what's on my wish list.  And if we are gonna spend $100 plus dollars I'm not leaving the guess work up to my sweet husband!  We found out really early on in our marriage that it works much better this way.  For instance Daddy got a duel swivel beveled edge compound miter saw (you all have no idea what that is, do you, its a glorified tool) for his birthday, now you all know know if he didn't write that down and show me exactly what he wanted, he was getting a new sweater and some shoes.  Sweaters and Shoes make me very happy, but Daddy, not so much.
I also picked up a few new shirts and some shorts for our trip to Florida in less than 3 weeks.
I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day, enjoy all the pampering!  Rest, sleep in and thank God for the opportunity to be a Mommy!  The greatest gift here on earth is the 3 little sweets that call me Mommy!

Yeah! He did good *wink wink* I do the same thing with my hubby. I don't want to set him up for failure when I know exactly what I want!

I wish we could crash your party! I really do!

Happy Mother's Day Happy Mommy!

I love your purse!!! I've made my own versions of those bags but they just aren't the same.

I learned early in marriage too...that if I didn't want a stupid grocery store plant that I'd better hint out loud. With pictures.

I even gave my hubby a photo of the flowers I might want for Mother's Day.

We will see if he got the "picture" so to speak.

Happy Day,
The Maid
