{Weekend Fun: Mother's Day}

I enjoyed a wonderful Sunday off. It was much needed for this momma-to-be, Thursday, Friday and Saturday were very long days for me at work. So that made having this Sunday off extra special. We were able to celebrate my mom and enjoy some time relaxing together as a family(something we don't get to do very often). We devoured some delicious BBQ on the Plaza and afterwards we carried on our tradition of going to Tower Tavern. This is our third year spending Mother's Day at our favorite bar. It's ridiculous, I know, but we kind of love it. It was a little different for me this year, not be able to drink and all, but it was still a good time. The bar is always slow on Mother's Day so we basically get the place to ourselves, with a few of our friends trickling in, here and there. The bar has a "jukebox," it's more of an iPod/iTunes setup, but you get the point-it plays music that we pay for. It was fun because one of the bartenders decided that we could only play soundtracks from our favorite movies. So we heard songs from Top Gun, The Lion King, Caddy Shack, The Breakfast Club, Star Wars, The Bodyguard and so on. It was pretty fun and when you didn't pick the song it was fun to guess which movie it was from. My mom really enjoyed it. 
Before going meeting up with my family, Kory spoiled me rotten. Even though, I'm not technically a mom yet, Kory treated me like I was. He bought me the most beautiful card. We went to down town Lees Summit to enjoy a delicious(local) breakfast. Then he took me to my favorite nursery, Farrand Farms, to pick out some of the flowers we needed for our home. I was in heaven, I could spend hours picking out flowers to plant. We still have a lot more to fill and plant, but it was the perfect start! Thank you Kor for treating me like a queen! I love you! 
Here's just a few pics...





This is me secretly rooting for a girl. Kor keeps saying he doesn't care as long as baby and momma are healthy. I couldn't agree more, but people ask what I want, so I might as well tell them. :)
