... to meeeeee!
I "suggested" to Hubs that since it was my very first (official) Mothers Day, that if he wanted to make a bit of a big deal of it, that that would be fine by me. And boy did he come to the party. I had mentioned a couple of things that I would love (stove-top espresso pot, bundt cake tin, massage) but ultimately left it up to him to buy something for Chanbe to give to me. He purchased the gift on Friday afternoon, and forbid me to go into the spare room. I do love a good surprise!
Sunday morning rolled around (after a bad night with Chanbe Saturday - teething + blocked nose does not make for a happy baby) and Hubs took Chance at about 9am so I could have more of a sleep in. Obviously I count this as present number one. At 10:45am, in came my 2 favourite men, armed with a massive present and an amazing looking breakfast! Oh, and the most beautiful card.
I was so excited as I unwrapped the beautifully wrapped prezzie:
Oh. My. GOODNESS!!!!!!! My very own Kenwood Mixmaster!! I have been wanting one of these for so long, but we haven't been able to afford it. But Hubs got a great deal and just couldn't resist. Woooooo!!! (Can you see the card in the bottom right corner?)
And the breakfast! Poached eggs, tomato, mushrooms, bacon and toast. It was SO delicious! Of course I had to take my new toy for a test drive immediately, and Hubs had a hankering for fancy chocolate mousse. How could I say no?!
It was deliciously decadent and we had some for dessert last night:
All in all, an absolutely amazing day. We went for a walk in the afternoon and actually ran into one of the midwives who helped deliver Chanbe! We had a little chat to her and ended the day with some leftovers (I wasn't cooking!) and a few (7) episodes of Nurse Jackie. Hubs sure has set the bar high for Fathers Day!
Thank you Hubs and Chanbe for making my first Mothers Day so special!
