I celebrated my first Mother’s Day with B and FW this weekend! Last year, I was 30+ weeks pregnant and felt funny every time people told me Happy Mother’s Day. But this year, with a 10-month-old boy, things are a little different 🙂
This year, B, FW and I celebrated with a weekend full of things that I enjoy doing.
For example, Friday night we got a beer at one of our favorite local pubs. Oh, and my phone died Friday so all of these photos are from B’s phone – and I was pretty much sans technology all weekend!
Saturday, I had to work in the morning, but was able to meet B and FW for a late lunch. We met up with a friend at Great Lakes Brewing Company before doing some shopping at the West Side Market.
Then, after a little shopping and errand-running, we went to the Indians game! It was FW’s first game.
The weather was great – it was a little chilly but sunny and mild the entire game.
And then, for dinner, B made me pizza!
Sunday morning was GREAT. We started out with a run on the Towpath.
Followed by some donuts from a nearby donut shop. They have a CASSSATA CAKE donut just for Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day and omg it is amazing (not pictured).
And then, some brunch. We feasted on some Mexican Eggs Benedict and shared a pancake as well.
While FW napped, we were also semi-productive; B helped me meal prep for the week and I caught up on some more work. It’s been busy and I’m trying hard not to get behind!
That afternoon, we went over to B’s family’s house for Mother’s Day dinner. We had small plates, a bunch of food that people brought over as a potluck. Some of the goodness included crab cakes, salad, cheese and bread, fruit, shrimp, open-faced steak sandwiches, bruschetta and more!
All in all, it was a great way to spend my first Mother’s Day.
Questions for you:
- When was the last time you were without a phone or any technology?
- Do you like cassata cake?
