Mother's Day weekend fun!

Oh my gosh, can't believe this weekend is over. It flew!!

It has been a busy but FUN one!!

Friday night I went and saw the movie Something Borrowed with Michelle.

It was so fun and such a super super cute movie. I read the book, and so it was fun to compare. It did vary but still loved it anyway. Michelle, we need to get together again SOON!!

Then Saturday morning I was up early for my first 5k run.

My sister and I.

Me with my Mom and her hubby.

About to cross the finish line.

Mission accomplished. I'm the one in the green in front of the lady in pink shirt. (You can see the time in this picture above the FINISH).

I DID IT!!!!! I really did it. It meant the world to have my family come out and support me and to watch me cross the finish line. The 5k was so much fun and already looking for future runs. I am hooked. There is nothing like crossing that finish line and the energy was amazing. WooHoo... I'm an official 5ker :)

Saturday afternoon I got to meet up with Kari. She is a twitter friend I've been looking forward to meeting. She was in the Orlando area for the day and so she asked if I wanted to meet up at the mall with her and we were able to hang out for a few hours. It was so wonderful to get to meet her, just sad we didn't have alot of time. Then Saturday night I baby-sat and didn't get home till super super late. It was a full day and I was exhausted.

This morning we went to church with my brother and his family because my baby niece was getting dedicated.

My older niece's face cracked me up in this picture.

My Mom, Granny, me, my sister (3 generations), and my sister-in-law.

They go to a real cute little country church. It was a sweet time and glad we were able to be there.

Then we went out for lunch at a little hole-in-the-wall place right on the the water that just opened up down from my brother and SIL's house. Seriously, these types of places are the best. The food did not disappoint.

Girl loves her lemons, ha!

Face after the lemon, cracks me up!

Their motto is, "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade." :)

Momma and her girls.

HAHA!! Being goofy.

Best slaw dog EVER!! (had already taken a bite out of it, ha)

Daddy and his girls.

It was the perfect day. My Mom had a great mother's day being with all her kids. I talk about my mom alot on the blog and so it's no surprise when I say she is one of my best friends, my great advice giver, prayer warrior, my listener, the person who makes me laugh, and the one I'm blessed to call Mom!! She is this and so much more!!

Hope all you moms have had a GREAT Mother's Day! And know today can be hard for those who have lost a mom or longing to be a mom. I've been thinking and praying for each and every one of you.
