Happy Mother's Day

I'm leaving for the weekend to go to Time Out For Women with my mother. I didn't originally realize I was leaving Mother's Day weekend, and I feel a little bad that I won't be with my girls. On the other hand, I get to spend some quality time with my mother and I get to go to San Diego (kind of a last trip before I hunker down and wait for my baby to get here). I thought I would leave a thought for all you mothers out there before I leave (and change the picture so you didn't have to look at rodents over this happy weekend).
Mothers I know--I think you are all terrific! You work hard and none of us are perfect but I am constantly inspired by you. Just the fact that you continue on despite regular trials and imperfections makes me realize that I can do the same (trust me, I have plenty of imperfections to work on). So, take a moment this weekend and give yourself a pat on the back. And all you women who are not mothers, give yourself a pat on the back too. This should really be a day to celebrate all women because each has something special to offer.
So, eat some chocolate (not you Sarah) or some fruit. Read a good book, take a bubble bath, whatever you enjoy. And remember your blessings. Here are three things I am very thankful for. I took these around Easter time and forgot to post them.

Have tons of fun at TOFW! Be sure to blog all about it when you get back. :)

June and Robyn could be twins. I can't believe how much they look a like. Sometimes when I see them i have to really look at them to know who's who.

Have a great time in San Diego and at TOFW! Thanks for the words of inspiration -- sometimes I wonder if I'm the only one with the imperfections.
What adorable pictures of your girls. You took them? Do you have that background? My sister-in-law is very into photography and purchased some backdrops at a good price online. They are CUTE girls!

Those pictures are adorable. I can't believe how much your girls have grown. It proves that we definately don't see you guys enough. Darling pictures though! Have fun on your weekend away.

I didn't actually TAKE the pictures, but when I get them scheduled and the kids dressed and there, I just call it good. They were actually at Target for those of you who like the background. It isn't my favorite, but the subjects are so cute, I don't mind.
