I had an awesome Mother’s Day this year, definitely one of the best yet! I also love how the preschool teachers do little things for Mother’s Day as well for the kids to bring home. The funniest thing was this little “About my Mom” thing they filled out. The first question was “My mom always says” and Ty’s response was”
“TO-NY”, when she’s mad
I just about DIED laughing. We’re always joking about how I say Tony’s name when I’m yelling for him and he thinks it’s hilarious when Ty mocks me when I do it. So, the fact that he told that to his teachers as the one thing I always say…well, I’m sure they were rolling!
I guess I also like to wear pink shirts and that my favorite thing to do with Ty is play Wii Fit.
I also got my first breakfast and bed on Mother’s Day, which consisted of a very tasty granola bar (again from the preschool teachers!) and lots of snuggles with the kiddos.
I then got to go shoot a gorgeous little newborn girl, which was such a pleasure.
We then headed over to my sister’s house to celebrate with my mom and family. My sister made some super yummy kabobs on the grill and the asparagus was delicious as well.
One of my fave new recipes are these super EASY and delicious potatoes:
Range Roasted Potatoes
Preheat oven to 425.
Take 3 lbs of your favorite potatoes, skin on and cut them up into chunks, not too big though.
1/2 cup of Olive Oil (I like to use EVOO)
1 package of Onion Soup Mix
Throw it all in a big Ziploc bag and shake it up (this is SO much easier than mixing it in the bowl, IMO)
Once mixed, put into a 9×13″ glass baking pan and bake for 30-40 mins or until potatoes are nice and tender. Stir occasionally while baking. You’ll know they’re done when they’re a nice, rich golden brown color.
I think Sweet Potatoes would be really tasty too this way!
Here’s a few photos of my sweet monkeys from our day
It’s scary how much they look alike!
