Mother's Day Out

Today is a day that I can honestly say that I look forward to all year. My Mom, Sister and I got together for our annual "Mother's Day Out". This is something that we have been doing for several years. Us "Mom's" get together without the kids or husbands and just spend the day together. Every year we find something new to do.

Crystal, Me & Mom

Today we were up early to go treat ourselves to much needed pedicures. I'm sure that my feet were so thankful to be pampered. We all ended up with "pretty feet". Crystal decided to have a "french pedicure", Mom went with a light color and I opted for a bright pink.

Our "Pretty Feet"
When we were finished with our pedicures we headed to the Ivy House for a delicious lunch, and some yummy desserts. We each ordered a different dessert and had a taste of each one. Crystal ordered the vanilla milk cake, which I will have to say was very good, Mom had the banana cream cake, it was good too, (I think I would have liked it better if it didn't have nuts on it) and I ordered the strawberry delight, it was also good. Out of the three I would have to say that I liked the milk cake the best. When we finished our lunch we made our way upstairs to the gift shop to "browse", there sure were a lot of pretty things up there.

Me & my Mom
When we left the Ivy House we stopped in at an antique store to have a look. We did find some treasures. Mom bought me this cute necklace and earring set, (thanks Mom!!), she also bought a cute little step stool that the grandbabies can use when they are at her house and Crystal got a really neat looking mixing bowl. We were all happy with the treasures that we found.

As usual we laughed a lot and had so much fun. I am looking forward to the next time I can have a day to spend with my mom and my sister. We don't get to have very many days where it is just the three of us, so I treasure those times that we do have together. Happy Mother's Day!
