Mother Daughter Time

I love spending time with my mom and it just doesn't happen often enough. She came in late Saturday night and left Tuesday afternoon.

Saturday when we got back from the airport we ate some dinner and then did Kinley's bedtime routine. It was so special to be able to share bedtime with my mom. Kinley hasn't seen nana since November so she was a little unsure at first, but warmed right up.

After putting Kinley to bed we had some wine and talked and talked! I am so use to going to bed around 9 and I think we were up until around 11 when I finally had to crash! I know I know 11 is not that late but it is for me! Especially when Kinley has been getting up in the night since being sick and then gets up at 6-6:30 for the day.

Sunday Kinley was up bright and early at 5:30...yawn!!! We hung out in our jammies drinking coffee and reading lots and lots of books. My mom and I went to see 50 Shades of Grey while Matt put Kinley down for a nap. I have to say I loved the movie! I think they did a great job and can not wait for the next one! We ran to the grocery store and then went to Matt's parents for dinner so everyone could catch up. We all had a great time! After Kinley went to bed we all watched a movie and ate cake and brownies! YUMMY!!

Monday Matt had to work early so my mom and I just hung out and ran a few errands. We really didn't do much but spend some quality time together. We ordered lunch in from Jimmy Johns and enjoyed it while Kinley napped. It is great we don't have to be doing much to have a great time! We watched talked through a few episodes of Scandal and called it an earlier night. Still later than normal for me :).

Tuesday we hung out in jammies for as long as possible and when Matt got back from the doctor we all went to lunch at Plaza Azteca. I was a little hesitant because the last few times it hasn't been that good which is surprising but it was so yummy this time!! Of course Kinley didn't want to eat much until right before we were about to leave and then she wanted to eat all the rice on my lap. But hey thats the way it goes when you are so cute!! Then it was time to head back home and let my mom pack up her things. I hate goodbyes!! We headed out to the airport and found out her flight was 3 hours delayed in Chicago....grrrrr!!! She was looking at a 5.5 hour layover in Chicago! Sometimes flying is a real pain! Actually I am pretty sure it always is! We walked her up to security and said our goodbyes. We made it short and sweet because I didn't want to cry my eyes out!! I keep telling myself I will see her in June and it is only a few months away! But really it is a long time from now! Tears....

I put a new recipe in the crockpot before we left so dinner would be ready when we got home. Little did we know it would take us over 2 hours to get home from the airport and neither one of us was hungry by then! We needed a bottle of wine! The weather was awful!

We had such a great time with my mom and we can't wait to see her again!

We are getting another snow day today due to a huge storm! Hopefully we will be off Friday too!! Woo hoo!! Kinley was up all night throwing up so we will be enjoying a lot of cuddles today. Have a great day everyone!
