Happy Mother's Day
Jeremy got me a chair for the backyard for Mother's Day and a new hair style! The kind of chair you can lay out in and recline while soaking up the blazing sun. One of my favorite things to do is lay out. It has been since I was thirteen years old! When I was single I would spend every single Saturday at the pool, all day long before meeting friends out for dinner. Something about being in the sun all day made me feel good! Now that I have kids, I lay out while they nap or play in the blow-up pool. Even when I was pregnant I would lay out in the back yard in my two piece so I could get some sun on my prego belly. Of course no one else was around, just the kids! Today I figured I should lay out in my new chair while the kid's slept. After all, when you have platinum blonde hair, you better get some sun so people can tell the difference between your hair and skin! Right?! It's interesting though. I had a baby almost four months ago so the body is in a major transitional stage. Wearing a two piece when you still have the Linea negra and baby fat is pretty weird but I was in the backyard where no one could see me!

It was nice soaking up the hot, Austin sun while listening to my iPod. And for the record, it is way hotter here than Dallas. The humidity here is pretty bad. It's 90 degrees today but it feels much hotter! Well, I hope all of you moms are having a great Mom's day. I'm about to get myself ready and go out for a little while! My husband is letting me leave for a while and that is a wonderful present for a mom on Mother's day! woo hoo! I'll be there soon Starbucks! Save me a seat!

Josiah has been telling me all day long, "Happy Mother's Day Mommy! I'm so happy you are a mommy!" That cracks me up!!!

In case anyone is wondering, the TEXAS HEAT has arrived. There is no turning back now. Yikes!

I'm glad for you that you're still able to wear a two piece. I have too many stretch marks to be comfortable doing it, not to mention there's just far too much tummy.
And I love the hair! You DO look like Pink now. :)

Thanks Kelli! Just remember, I am in my BACKYARD where no one else is! :)
