The Post Following a Holiday...

May is insane.
Insanely busy.
But still a don't-blink-or-you'll-miss-it kinda way.

Let's recap for a moment.
Friday night was a Mother/Daughter Tea for our church ladies...or as I like to call it Diet Coke and French Silk Pie...

Ben's Grandma, Ben's Mom, Me, My mom

Saturday was Run Like a Mother race day...

I'm not sure any race should be THAT much fun!
This was my friend Kim's first Run Like a Mother...YAY Kim!

Billie and I post race...she refuels with water...I refuel with coffee.

Sunday...Mother's Day...

Does it look like I'm holding them there, making them stand by me? Because I totally am.

Jasmine (little brother Jay's girlfriend), Mom, Me, Grandma

(note to self: next time you wear that dress, stick a belt over it in order to NOT look 6 months pregnant...sheeesh.)

Mom, Brother Ryan, and me...hugging...which is funny, because I'm not really a hugger...I'll save that for another post...

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend...I'm off to launder now ;)

PS - I'm really REALLY resisting the urge to let you know that brother Ryan is single and 23 and one of the greatest young guys you'll ever meet...although he does ride a motorcycle that goes too fast and causes me to worry for his safety. Did I mention he fixes my computer when it's slow too?!?

Sure glad I resisted...


  1. Happy Mother's Day!

    The race looked like a blast....I need a race like that.

    You and your family of ladies look so darn cute all lined up.

    The one of you with your boys is A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E.

    My younger sis (22) is available! "Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match..."

  2. sounds like a GREAT weekend!!

  3. Delightful post, Sarah! Loved your pictures, you are so beautiful.

  4. What a fun post!

    I didn't get any shots with my little baby yesterday (mainly because I was too busy blowing my nose and popping antibiotics) but if I had've (real word) I would have had to hold her there too.

    And can I just say your hair makes me jealous in the most un-Christian way? IT IS SO ADORABLE! :)

  5. fun it was!!! I love the pics of your mom, i love that lady!! and love you too!! :)

  6. Have I told you lately you look fantastic? Because you do! Happy Mother's Day

  7. what a weekend! happy mother's day my dear friend and fellow mother of boys! we should talk for real again soon. *smile*

  8. It is so nice to "meet" you family. I don't have any tounger sibs. But your brother is a cutie. I wish I had some brothers. instead I got a son,which as you know is such a "gift". No really I enjoy the dirt and mess.
    Sounds like a great weekend!
    You runners are SO impressive! I cna't even run around the block. :)

  9. Does it look like I'm wearing underwear? Because I totally am. Very 13 Going On 30. :) LOVE it.

  10. Happy Mama's Day! Great pix! I totally understand the 'mama hold' for the picture with your kids... I always say there's a story behind every picture!

  11. I'm with Rachel on coveting your hair. :P

    Also, my favorite picture was you refueling with coffee. Clearly we were meant to be friends!

  12. Sounds like you had a great weekend. Love the picture of you with your boys. My mother's day picture was a lot like that :)

  13. Glad you had a great mother's day!

    You are so cute. And I also had to hold my kids (at least one of them) in my lap for a picture on mother's day.:)

  14. Sounds like you had a great weekend!LOVE the pics! Blessings Faye

  15. Glad you had a nice Mother's Day weekend!

    Your brother looks like a real catch. Surely you can find him a woman. You should start taking applications or resume's or something. ;-)


  16. Happy (late) Mother's Day! I love the pics. And I also wish I knew someone who was 23-ish for your bro!

  17. Awww...great pics...I love the refueling race's a good one! :) Happy Belated Muterstag...I just made that up...but it means Mother's Day...and I used the German words for "mother" and "day." :D I don't know if it's a real phrase they use, but it sounds cool. :) Blessings!

  18. Sweet pictures.

    I'm slacking on my running ... probably because it's like 500 degrees down here. I ran 1 1/2 miles and thought I was going to have a heat stroke. Boo for me, Yay for you.

  19. Looks like fun busy!! Happy Mother's Day to you!

  20. You are adorable. Love all of the pics, what a fun weekend.

  21. HAHA!! I'm sure Ryan isn't complaining. ;) Which, if y'all lived down South, I would have a girl (one of my bridesmaids) to fix him up with, lol!!

    Happy Mother's Day! I love the pic of you and your boys -- precious, even though you had to hold them together, haha!

  22. what a crazy fun weekend you had!

    cute pics of you & your boys! and don't even say that you look 6 months prego in the outfit you wore sunday. not even true!!! its super cute!!!

  23. My fave is the pic of you holding your little men in place. :)
