Happy Mother's Day To Me!

So I woke up yesterday morning at 7:30, went downstairs, and saw this:

And that is how my wonderful Mother's Day began. Can you guess what my awesome husband got me for Mother's Day??? I'll give you a hint: check out the apple on top of the box....

YES HE DID!!!! I now have a brand new computer! Yay me! And it's all neat and tidy. no hard drive tower...nope. It is all in the wonderfully big monitor! So so so excited! And guess what my amazing kids got me so i no longer have to carry my credit card and keys in my pocket when i dont feel like taking my purse with me.......?

cute right? I was a very happy mommy yesterday.

I then prepared mother's day dinner for 32....
with a minor 2 hour "I'm about to die, I have a headache in my eye, please let me throw up, I'm about to faint, lying on the bathroom floor crying, husband yelling at me that I stay up too late" migraine. But everything looked very pretty by the time everyone came over.....

Happy Mother's Day to me!

And I hope all you moms out there had a great day too!
