WRONG!!! I opened my shower door and this is what was waiting for me.......After that fun little surprise, we headed off to church and "my primary kids" sang "Mother, I Love You" in sacrament meeting. They did such a wonderful job. I was so proud of them. After sacrament meeting, the Young Women and Young Men were passing out little bags of tiny muffins to all the mothers, and they even gave me one. I guess when you're married and you don't have kids, you still count as a "mother" (a MIT that is). During Primary, the Young Women and Young Men came and took over in primary, so I was able to go to Relief Society. It was such a nice service. Don't get me wrong - I love my calling, but I do miss going to Relief Society. We then headed up my parent's house for some yummy steak dinner and to see some of my sibs. It was great to spend some time with them. I absolutely love my mother (you know who you are). She's an amazing woman, but many of you know that already. I could brag about her, but I'm not going to. We'll just leave it at that I love her and she has always been an example to me of the kind of wife and mother I strive to be. Then off to dinner #2. Nic's parents came in to town. It was Rita's birthday on Saturday and Mother's Day of course yesterday. We had a yummy bbq and delicious dessert with a few of his sibs. It was great to see my in-laws. I love Nic's parents. I'm so glad that I married into an amazing family. To end the night we headed back up to my parent's house to watch "Shine." What an amazing movie of a beyond gifted piano player (true story too). I highly recommend it! All in all it was a great Mother's Day. I love my mother and my mother-in-law. Hope all you mothers had a great one as well.
My shower wasn't just a normal shower on Mother's day - it was my surprise shower. Nic had gotten me this beautiful bouquet of flowers and this sweet card. He is so thoughtful. The card was about what a wife is - Nic was thanking me for being his wife and companion. Although I'm not yet a mother, he was still wishing me a happy Mother's Day saying I was going to be a great mother one day. Now I'm known as M.I.T. (Mother In Training) and not S.P.I.T. (SPouse In Training). I think I'm still in training to be a spouse though. What an amazing, thoughtful, loving husband I have. I love you Nic! I love opening my surprise shower!
