Mother's Day

Cooper, Kevin's mom Nancy and me

To celebrate my very first Mother's Day Kevin and I decided to host a Bar-B-Que at our house. We were joined by Kevin's brothers, parents and his aunt and uncle Ann and Tim. Even Nick and Melissa were able to be here. I couldn't have asked for a better day- well unless of course my dad and sister could have been here. The sun was shining, we had a table FULL of delicious food and Cooper entertained us all afternoon.
To top things off Cooper gave me a basket full of pretty spring flowers and Kevin bought us tickets to see Carrie Underwood later this summer at the state fair! I am very excited about this concert. I just love her!
A few weeks ago I saw a posting in the Fargo Forum asking for advice we have received from our mothers. I submitted a few along with a photo. I was kind of surprised when my submission was included in yesterday's Sunday paper! While I don't think my mom ever actually said these things to me directly, they are all philosophies that help describe a little about who my mom is.
1. Don't be lazy
2. Do more than is expected of you
3. Just let it go- in reference to letting others get under your skin
4. get up early and beat the crowd (especially when shopping!)
5. Have FUN!
