It's late but that's ok because I'm the mom and I said so!

Let me preface this post by saying I'M SORRY!  I totally forgot to post yesterday and I promise you that it has nothing at all to do with Words With Friends.  Promise.

Anyway, last weekend was Mother's Day weekend!  Every year, I host a Mom's Night Out with my mom friends.  We started with dinner at Casa Grille and then headed to Bisque It to paint some pottery, eat some cakies, and drink some wine :o)  This is always a fun night.  It's nice to get together with people my age that have kids and understand motherhood.  As always, I opened the invite up for each of my friends to bring a mom friend of their own... you know, expanding the social circles!  We had a blast!

If you have never been to a pottery painting studio, I highly suggest visiting one!  Obviously, if you are in the Fort Wayne area you need to go to Bisque It... I hear the owner is super nice (she's my mom)! With the exception of two, this year's group was totally new to Mom's Night Out.  I don't think any of them had been to Bisque It before... Did I mention that it was a lot of fun??

Sarah painted a pretty awesome sun plate!

Jennie and her mom, Cyndie

Leanne (right) and her mom friend, Stephanie

Amy and her mom friend, Danielle

Ashley... she loved the cakies :o)

Our finished projects before they were fired.  *Mom- I need a pic of these fired!*

On Sunday, after receiving some love from Mike and the girls at home (I got a gift certificate for a massage and some beautifully colored pictures!), the fam and I headed up to Garrett to visit my mom and dad!  Jaden and Taylor surprised me with some plates they had made for me at Bisque It!

We gave Gramma J her yearly photo book of the girls.

The girls helped Gramma make lunch :o)

Can you believe these guys??  This is supposed to be a day where they pamper Mom and I, and all they do is sit on their butts and play on their dumb phones!  Makes me sick, I tell ya!

Hey! How did this picture get in here?!?!

Again, I promise you that I am reading each of your blogs and totally NOT playing Words With Friends (user name is shanmc01 if you "don't" play this either!)

My lovely family :o)

Happy Mother's Day, Momma!

Ok, I'm starting to get flashbacks of the whole photos-before-prom thing from high school!
Love you, babe!
Hope you all had a great Mother's Day!  Oh, and if you received your Spring Fling gift, send me a photo of your goodies!  If you haven't sent it yet, DO IT THIS WEEK!  If you haven't received a gift yet (not counting Lala) email me and I'll do some investigating :o)  Happy Wednesday!

I tried to comment on this last night, but Blogger must have had a headache. Man, what I wouldn't give for a Casa salad right now. Oh, yeah, except the $500 it would cost to get me one...(sigh)

I love that flower bowl made by your friend Ashley! Those are all going to turn out great- I can tell! Put Bisque It on the list for when I visit.
