Wishing all you Mother’s out there a very happy Mother’s Day! You’re the best… I’m sure a lot of sacrifices are made, but its all worth it, right?

I would like to say THANK GOD for my mom, Sheila, and for Fred’s mom, Bobbie. Fred and I couldn’t have hand picked better moms. No chance. None. Zip. Zero. Nada. We love them more than anything… we are very blessed and we know that.

Now for those of you who aren’t yet a mother, or cannot be a mother.  I get it.  I understand. I know how you feel. Motherhood clearly isn’t in the cards for everyone. I wish it was, but it’s not. So, be positive, move forward, spend time with a niece or nephew, neighborhood kid or volunteering where so many kids need a positive influence in their lives. And… more important… don’t worry if you can’t be positive quite yet. It took me a long time…

…and hey, I’m the best darn dog mom you’ve ever seen… he he…. (Charlie when we first got him in 2009)

Believe me when I say… dog moms make lots of sacrifices too! (Caught in the act! Note empty toilet paper roll… nice Charlie… couldn’t have paper on a roll for two years!)

I swear tile is creamy white… not sure why it appears tan… eeeek.

Love you moms!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Let me start of by saying how thankful I am for having such an awesome mom. She’s the coolest of all moms, funny, sweet, loving and strong. Very, very strong. I bet she doesn’t realize that (do you mom?)… Anyone that can get through cancer is a tough cookie, and to go through it with a great attitude is a big accomplishment, as well as being such an inspiration. I think I’m going to start calling my mom “Grace”… she’s got lots of it!

I’m also thankful for my mother-in-law. I know there are the standard jokes about mother-in-laws being dragon ladies… I lucked out (again) and got a super sweet lady, just like me, hee…

I know some of you no longer have your moms… I’m so sorry, holidays can be so tough. I hope you are able to keep your mom in all your good thoughts. You do know she can still hear you when you talk to her, right? That’s a small comfort…

Lots of you are mom’s… hard work no doubt. Personally, I’m a dog mom. The cards didn’t fall in my favor with the ‘having a kid’ thing, so Mother’s Day has it’s moments for me as well… But I am Charlie’s mom (woof)… and I’m a good dog mom, ha ha… (PSSST, Charlie you’re a lucky dog!)

Come on Charlie, lets go play in the sprinkler! Catch you back here tomorrow!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day mom! I just want to let you know how much you mean to me (the world), and what a inspiration you have been in my life. I was SO FORTUNATE to grow up in a happy home with great parents, and YOU are the best mom in the world. From taking care of us if we were sick, to just being so much fun to be around. We’ve had such a great time shopping and eating, and just hanging out on the front porch (and still do!). I want to thank you for all you have done for me and know that I am here for you… always! I love you! me

Happy Mother’s Day Bobbie! We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all you have done for us. You are always willing to help with any/everything! I have heard stories of Fred’s childhood and he had THE BEST time! From your support with showing horses, the two of you building fires, the family camping trips for the summer (whooooa, you are a trooper!)… all the things that make him who he is! So THANK YOU for being so wonderful to me, and for being such an awesome mom to Fred, WE are always here for YOU. We love you! Us

Happy Mother’s Day to all you Mother’s out there (Bridget!!)… I wish you the happiest day ever…
