Stress week is O-V-E-R

Last week was the most stressful week of the entire school year for me. I have to do a portfolio on each one of my kids and they were due this past Friday. Each one takes hours to put together and I had 9 of them to do...more than any other teacher on post. But I got them done, and on time. I felt like a really crappy teacher last week because I did very little teaching. One of coworkers knew I was feeling the stress and she tried to make me feel better with this....



As you can see, one of the KitKats is missing. Yes, I ate it and yes, it is a full size.

Now that stress week is over, I have been able to have a very nice relaxing weekend. Yesterday The Rockstar spent the day with me shopping. Normally he doesn't like to go shopping, but yesterday he didn't complain one bit. Maybe it was because I was trying on swimsuits and I would open up the dressing room door and model them for him :). I had bought several swimsuits over the past few weeks and there was one that I just didn't love on me...I loved it on the model, but not on me. I liked the top, but not the bottom. Since it was so expensive ($75 for just the bottoms) I decided to return it. I did buy another one in its place, but The Rockstar still likes the cheapest one I bought (for like $20) the best. I love the colors of it, but I am certainly not used to wearing a real two piece suit. I have been in tankinis for the last 20 years. But not this year...I am actually going to be  brave enough to wear my 2 piece and not worry if someone thinks I look fat in it. Here it is...


I really should learn to take self pics during the day when The Rockstar isn't laid up in the bed in the background. I know my bed is always unmade in my pictures, but I promise I make it up every morning :-)


Today was a fabulous Mother's Day. Yesterday when I got home from shopping this was on my jewelry chest....



The Boy left it for me. He didn't stay at home last night, so I really had no idea what he had planned. I followed the directive and was ready at 1:00. He showed up exactly on time with a dozen roses in hand. He said he was taking me on a date for Mother's Day. We went to my favorite restaurant...just me and my date :)

 
 
 
 
After we returned The Big Boy came over and spent some time with me. He gave me a gift certificate for spa services. Yep, I did good raising these boys right :-)
 
 
I hope all of you had a great Mother's Day too!

Such a nice Mother's Day date! I love the "dress nice" instruction.

You look great, and you don't need to worry about rocking that suit on the beach.
