HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the mommys out there!  I hope you all have a wonderful day.  I love celebrating Mother's Day as a Mommy.  Though, it is still a little crazy to realize that I am a mother. Today I'm going to Mass and passing out "Thanks Mom, for the Gift of Life" roses afterwards.  Then, I'm going out to breakfast with my whole family - including Cupcakes and Hobbs, my rents, bro & sis.  I wish my inlaws lived closer so I could see them too...
