Happy Mother’s Day + SECOND Erica Sara Designs Giveaway Winner

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies and soon-t0-be-mommies out there! Hope you all had a wonderful day spent with family and lots of good food!

I had planned on a long run early yesterday morning but after my son woke up (for the day) at 4:15am and my belly not feeling “right”, I decided to forego the run and spend the early morning hours cuddling and reading in bed with my son.

As I had mentioned in a previous post, my family and I celebrate Mother’s Day each year with brunch.  We decided to go to a local restaurant – Pasticceria Bruno – this year and could not have been happier with our choice.  The food was delicious, service was great, and we got to enjoy about two hours of eating, talking, and watching my son and niece play around with each other.

Some monkeying around in between courses!

After brunch, we made our way back to my mom’s house to have coffee, dessert, and play in the park.  The dessert from Pasticceria Bruno is to die for:

One of the highlights of the day for me was getting A TON of clothes from my sisters.  Between me and my older sister buying new homes (and trying to give away things we don’t need/want) and my two younger sisters doing some serious spring cleaning of their own, my mom’s entire family room was filled with shirts, pants, dresses, and shoes.  It was awesome – I have an entire bag of (new-to-me) clothes to wear both during pregnancy (some of the bigger shirts) and after Pumpkin is born in September!!
