Weekend Ramblings… {Mother's Day!}

Happy Mother’s Day! I’m just gonna dive right in…

I ventured out to shop for bathing suits. I know that Mexico is less than 2 months away, and I still have no bathing suit that actually fits my body. My stomach and butt have completely returned back to normal. I actually weigh less than what I did prior to having Aria. But that came at a cost which was breastfeeding. Ohhhhhhhh breastfeeding. Everything has a price, and I’m paying with the fact that I’m unable to sport a two-piece bikini since no top is fully designed for breastfeeding mommas. Gone are the days of picking a sexy swimsuit from the Victoria’s Secret catalogue…whomp whomp whomp.
I came to the realization that the only way I was gonna have any sort of support was if I went with a one piece. And yes, I already tried the tankini options…they didn’t work either.
As I stood in the fitting rooms and tried on bathing suit after bathing suit, I died a little inside every time. Let’s face it, my hormones are still imbalanced because I AM breastfeeding and I got so sad that nothing was fitting. I might have even shed a few tears.
Don’t get me wrong, I love being a mom more than anyone but there are those few moments I’m allowed to miss my old body, right? No judgies please!
Anyhow, I finally ended up picking out a bathing suit that I think looks good. Bleh.
The only good thing that came out of this shopping excursion was Aria’s new sunglasses. Here is my little diva in the making. I might be a little biased, but I don’t know anything cuter than this!

Also, I was pretty excited since Rudy was coming back from this business trip in the afternoon. Of course, after all the weather delays, he got home two hours later. LAME.
Amazing Friday night family snuggles!!!

We kicked off Saturday with some laziness. The hubs was still jetlagged so we had a pretty slow start to the day. So of course, what else is better on a lazy Saturday morning than some yummy guacamole? Um the answer is nothing if you were wondering. HA. Plus avocados are totally in season and it’s a must. Look out for the recipe on Wednesday!

Since I basically consider this weekend to be mommy’s weekend, I had to sneak in a picture with my munchkin on Saturday! And please excuse her messy playroom in the back there. With a six month old around, and no hubs around for 9 straight days results in no cleaning time. 

And then, I had to jump in on this. Starbucks was having those half-off fraps from 3-5 PM, which is normally when Aria naps so I haven’t had any. So on Saturday, I got one and lemme tell ya, I should’ve been having one everyday! HA. 😛

I got the Cafe Espresso frap, and it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! I highly recommend it. Get it. Like right now. =)

[Sunday – Mother’s Day]
Last year on Mother’s Day, I announced to the world that I was pregnant. And here I am a year later, celebrating it with my sweet, precious girl.
I cannot believe that I have the title as MOM. I’m still sometimes in awe at the fact that I created a human being. There aren’t enough words to ever describe how much I love my little girl. You know that real, raw, rock you to your core kind of love. The unimaginable amount of emotion after every single laugh she has. How my heart breaks when that pouty lip comes across her little face. After all, no one else will ever know the strength of my love for her, because she is the only one that knows what my heart sounds like from the inside. Ok I’m going to stop before I become a ball of mush and start crying as I type this…What did I tell you about those hormones?!

Anywho, I was treated like a queen bee this morning since I got breakfast in bed! We got to eat some yummy croissants, macaroons, coffee, juice, and strawberries! Some pictures from this morning…

My world.

Then we headed out for brunch which was so delicious! We tried a new restaurant that opened near us called Cedro. While they’ve got a few kinks to work out service-wise, the food was awesome. I think we’ll definitely be back there soon.

Eggs benedict with smoked salmon on english muffins. AHMAZING. And yes, I had a mimosa with it. DUH.

Yup. Sophie made an appearance at brunch. 

Look at that face. She has no idea how much she has me wrapped around her little fingers. 

We had a nice afternoon family nap. Naps are luxurious. I really wish I could convince Aria how awesome naps are, and she should still take them while life allows her to. If only we appreciated these little things when we were young…Sigh.
We ended the day with a simple dinner, champagne, and cheese! I had the most wonderful, incredible, first Mother’s Day. I have an amazing husband who made today perfect, and I’m so grateful to have him by my side today and forever. I’m so thankful to him for making me a momma, because it is the best gift I have ever gotten in my life.
Again, Happy Mother’s Day to all you mommas, mommas-to-be, and fur mommas. We are strong, and we are amazing. To the world, we might just be another mother, but to our kiddos, we are their world.

    Aww, your daughter is a doll – looks like a great first Mother's Day! I gotta say, I love the whole mason jar look from your Friday post. I wanted to do something similar I saw floating around on pinterest with 4 mason jars painted in easter colors with geraniums in them – but I never got around to it!
