Can I just say that my husband is awesome? I can, can’t I? Because if I can’t, then why the heck am I paying to host this blog? Down with censorship!
Jeeze, easily distracted much?
All distractedness aside, Wes is awesome. We spent some seriously fun time together as a family this weekend and it was bliss. On Friday we decided to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in honor of my late father.
My Dad loved Cinco de Mayo (he was a phenomenal cook, and his favorite kind of food to make was Mexican food) and he also loved The Big Lebowski (he loved that movie so much that at his request we carried his ashes around in a coffee can until we could spread them in the ocean), so we whipped up some White Russians and tamales and had a fan-freaking-tastic evening.
Yes, I cried at the end of the movie, and cried even more when we watched the slideshow of his life my aunts made for his memorial. But, I don’t think it’s a bad thing to cry because you miss someone you love. It felt nice to spend an evening enjoying the things he enjoyed, and I’m really glad Wes was willing to share it with me.
On Saturday we took Aidan to the local farmer’s market for the first time. I don’t know what the farmer’s markets are like in your area, but ours is pretty fantastic. Lots of fun, food, and festivity.
We bought some fresh asparagus, potatoes, and English toffee, and then stopped by Costco to buy some crab-stuffed salmon. Wes then proceeded to make me a special Mother’s Day dinner the likes of which has not been seen this side of a 5-star restaurant. De-LISH!
Of course Sunday was Mother’s Day, and it was a lovely time. Wes gave me an incredibly thoughtful gift and I’d be remiss if I didn’t tell you what it is: A silver ring with an amethyst (Aidan’s birthstone). I wear it on my right ring finger and it looks perfect there. Such a thoughtful gift! Now I have a ring to celebrate the day I became a wife (my wedding ring) and a ring for the day I became a mother.
Now it’s Monday. And I’m kinda sad. It was such a fun weekend, why did it have to go and end?
