The Greatest Mother's Day!

(This pic was taken right after all my tears so forgive the red face)

Today has really been one of the best Mother's Days ever!

From the way the day has gone I'd really have to say... I'm spoiled! Nahhh... I'm not spoiled...LOL who am I trying to kid...OF COURSE I'M SPOILED!

The morning started with my girls giving me a few of my presents. Kacey made me a frame with her picture in it at school. She also made me a card that I will share because it really made me cry. The assignment was to "Get inside Mom's head" so this poem is sopposed to be me talking. She did a wonderful job!
Then I was given a small wrapped box. I was told it was something they both picked out for me. When I opened it, it was a new Pandora charm! It is the 4 roses with 4 pink gem stones. Roses for Mommy on Mother's Day that will never die.


Then I was taken out to breakfast at my favorite place, Juan's. Breakfast was delicious, the girls were not arguing, Kacey's blood sugar was 150 (right on target) ...could the day get any better? SURE!

After we left Juan's, we went to visit Frankie's Granny. We took her a hanging basket of flowers, which she absolutely loved! She looked wonderful :) Remember she just had her kidney removed a couple weeks ago because it had a cancer as big as an apple in it. She's getting around great and even managed to put lipstick on herself and Kacey and pose for a picture.While we were at Granny's house, I was given more presents from my girls and my hubby. They each had a small white paper bag. I opened Kacey's bag first.... 5 more charms for my bracelet!!! HOLY COW! Then Kayleigh's bag... 5 more charms!!! Finally Frankie's bag... 4 more charms!!! OMGGGGGGG!!! Here are the ones I got:

Kacey: my birthstone wheel, her birthstone wheel, star, Hello Kitty and paw print (for her school mascot)

Kayleigh: her birthstone wheel, coffee cup, silver awareness ribbon, LOVE, and pink flower wheel

Frankie: silver rose, gold & silver flowers, blue swirl wheel, and blue bumpy wheel
My entire bracelet is now full and I have to start a new one...LOL! I don't know how many of you are into the Pandora/Biagi beads but E-bay has wonderful deals on them!! If you buy them full price they are $25-$75 a bead but online you can pick them up for less than 1/3 of what the cost is in the store. (Thanks Mom for helping them get the beads for me!) I'll post pics of it soon! LOL my anniversary is Friday so ummmm...I think I need a new bracelet, huh? Haha!
We left Granny's and came home for a bit. We relaxed and just did....nothing! It was great to just sit around :) Then we left for Mom's and had the cookout there. I got my final present at her house. I got my FIRST Vera Bradley bag!!! It's the Purple Punch Tote (purple is my fav color!) and I'm sooooooo in love with my new purse...LOL! Kayleigh was a bit jealous cuz she liked this pattern too and she's a huge Vera fan...haha but Mommy beat her to it! It was all good though :) She liked seeing me so surprised and happy! (Thanks Mom for helping them get it and keeping it a secret!)
We left Mom's house after dinner and we came home to get things ready for tomorrow. It's back to school and lunches & baths had to be done. They went on to sleep with no fussing. I must was a wonderful day! I'm so blessed to have 2 happy and caring girls. I love being a Mommy (even when I'm so exhausted I don't feel like I can keep going!) They are my world and I wouldn't change a single thing about my crazy life (ok yes I would...bring on that cure!) Diabetes stayed in control and gave me a break today. It was nice to be so pampered for the day! I'm worn out and getting ready to head on to bed. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end for now!
Tomorrow is Kacey's Endo appointment. I'm feeling a bit nervous since she's had some hellish blood sugars lately. We meet with our CDE before our appointment so she can show us some new infusion sets and also so Kacey can get hooked up to the Dexcom for a week. Then we see the doctor at 1pm. Soooo.....We'll see! I'll update once I get home.
I hope all you Mom's out there had a wonderful day!

What a beautiful day Jill! So glad you were pampered and were able to relax! Awesome for good blood sugars as well- they make any day a good or bad one!
I 'll be praying for you as you prepare for the endo! Give yourself a break, too! You've had some major adjustments with the pump over the last couple of months- we haven't done that yet, but I'm sure it takes time to really get it figured out. You ARE an awesome mom and are doing a fantastic job! Can't wait to hear your update!
