the good, the bad, the nasty

 
 It's exhausting watching mom cross the finish line. And makes the girl real thirsty apparently ;)
Oh Mother's Day weekend... it really started off with a big, fat fail! I had been looking forward to this weekend for weeks but unfortunately Eric found out that he had to work and there was no getting out of it. Lucky us! At least I had a lot planned on Saturday to keep me busy. The day started with the color me rad 5k in St. George, UT and it was a perfect day for a race! My parents came to be with Mia and watch me cross the finish line. I took off in the first wave and my mom is convinced I am one of the first five that crossed the finish line. I don't know if that is brag worthy or pathetic when talking about the fun run that isn't even timed :) The views were incredibly gorgeous during the run, I want to do it every year just to experience that! And I was disgustingly covered in color... turns out you get pummeled when you're the only one running through the color stations, ha! It was a fun morning though and I'm grateful to my parents for being there with Mia! I ended the day by getting pedicures with my mom, a little early Mother's Day gift :)
Sunday morning I woke up feeling refreshed and in good spirit even though Eric was at work. I looked out my window and discovered at least 6 inches of snow... I kid you not! Then I went to get Mia out of bed and when I opened her door I was hit with a wall of puke stench. Happy Mother's Day to me ;) I may have started crying... a tiny bit of tears were shed over the fact that I had to deal with that all by myself, on Mother's Day, but most were shed because I felt so bad for Mia. It had happened sometime during the night and the poor girl slept with it for who knows how long. That's why even though things went from bad to worse as the weekend went on, I would do it over in a heart beat. After cleaning everything up (a couple times in the day, so fun) Mia and I just hung out in our pj's and watched movies as it snowed most of the day. The snuggles I got all day were priceless! And I often complain about Eric's job but I am so incredibly grateful for his hard work ethics and the pride he takes in a job well done. Even though he gets so little in return, he gives so much so that he can provide for us, and I can be home with Mia aside from my one day of work. But you can bet that I plan on having a happy, puke free day with my two loves and getting spoiled rotten today ;) I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!

Fun color run!!! Bummer your hubbs couldn't adore you on Mother's Day, but I'm sure he does many other days of the year.
Have totally walked into vomit-ville, so sad! Hope your little feels better!
Happy Mother's Day to you!

First, way to rock it out with the color run, you go lady. That picture of you with Mia is precious.

Second, I'm so sad Eric had to work and your lil bean was sick. That isn't any fun at all.

BUT, Happy Mother's Day to you sweet lady!

Sara Elizabeth said...

Hope Mia gets to feeling better soon!! It may not have been glamorous, but I'm sure she wouldn't trade moms... especially when snuggles in the snow (whattttt?!) are involved!

Mandie said...

Well, Saturday sounded amazing for you (I love the picture of Mia in front of the race banner). I'm sorry that your Mother's Day wasn't all you hoped it would be but you got to be with Mia & that's what's important. I hope that she's feeling better.

Hugs girl!! We have all been sick for over ten days and I got the worst of it on Mother's Day! Boo. And what a crazy snow storm in Cedar! Such a bummer. I hope baby Mia is feeling better. It always breaks my heart when my babies don't wake me up when they've thrown up in the night. :(

Eric is a very thoughtful husband I'm sure he is going to make Mother's Day up to you since he couldn't spend it with you. Hope Mia is feeling better :(

I love that face photo in the first picture.. Looks like you had a blast! Sorry that Eric had to work I am sure that was not fun to hear... Hope Mia is feeling better bless her little heart!

Elizabeth {Chasin' Mason} said...

Oh no! Poor mama. AND Mia. Puking is the worst worst worst. And on Mother's Day? Yuck. At least you were able to celebrate a little the day before with a pedicure. I say you have a re-do next weekend when your husband is home and he can spoil you all day!

Elizabeth said...

I am so glad you got to do the color me rad. I did the color run back in april and it was so so so fun! I am so sorry that your mothers day didnt go as expected!

Love Always,
Elizabeth
