Mother's Day as a Mom to Be

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's and Mom's to be.

I wake up earlier than my husband so I treated myself to a yummy breakfast of waffles, chipotle chicken, guac, and eggs. 

I later found out he was planning to get us breakfast. Ooooops, I'm pregnant, I wake up hungry. I could totally do second breakfast too.

Then we headed out to CineBistro for lunch and Captain America. I actually have a pretty bad track record for dine in theatres on Mother's Day. I am now 0-2 in good experiences. I ordered a burger, well done, with bacon, caramelized onions, no tomatoes, no lettuce, with fries. What I got was a burger so pink I could see it in a dark theatre, no bacon, lettuce, and tomato. Messing up a hungry pregnant ladies meal, on Mother's Day is not a good idea! By their 3rd attempt they got it close enough to right for me to eat it. But the movie was great and the rest of the day was much better.

It has become a Mother's Day tradition to get takeout and eat in the comfort of home. Olive Garden is our go to. Their online app is great. 

I was able to order 3 meals with specifications during our drive from the theater to the restaurant. Our food was sooo good. I highly recommend the takeout route for holidays. No wait and no hassle, and you get quality food

We spent the evening eating and looking through the baby book and family photos.

Check out the cute gifts my husband and sister got me.

The hubs got me a beautiful charm 

He also got the cutest matching charms for our moms. 2 gold booties set with the August birthstone.

My sis got me the cutest cookbook

I might have teared up when I opened it.

How did you celebrate Mother's Day?

Does your family have any unique traditions?

Health and Happiness,
