Good Friday, Sat Sun Mom's Day WOWEEE!!

Yes that's my wide load on the new cruiser! Maybe it will help work it off!

Best JOB in the WORLD. I am totally blessed to be a mom of this great little boy! I love love love being a mommy. I count my blessings every day. I have a healthy happy child that brings me true joy. I thank God for this gift and ask that he equip me to raise this little boy to be a man of God. Oh God, I pray that you will call my child to you and that you will equip me to teach him your ways every day of his life. I know that he is yours and only given to us to watch over for your glory. Deuteronomy 11:18-21 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 19 Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 20 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, 21 so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land that the LORD swore to give your forefathers, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth
What a weekend!!! I shared that Lambert was taking us on a surprise getaway vacation. Well, it was one that surely did not disappoint! I was in suspense until we pulled out of our neighborhood. I was totally prepared for Hyatt Hill Country and not really looking forward to a 4-5 hour drive at 5:00PM. So when Lambert told me we were heading to Galveston, I was excited. We haven't been for a weekend stay this year, and it's sooo our place. What he didn't tell me is that we were staying in the AWESOME San Louis Hotel on the Seawall. We usually stay at Moody Gardens which is very nice, but no San Louis! Friday night was wonderful, our room was amazing, the view was amazing, the food was amazing.... and so on. Saturday we spent most of the day at the pool, but we wanted to head over to the strand to shop at some of our favorite haunts that have finally re-opened. We passed this tiny little bicycle shop on Broadway. It had a vintage looking used pink bike outside.... similar the one I've been wanting. I asked Lambert if we could swing by there after our visit to the Strand and take a look at the bike. So we did. The bicycle was really really cute. We decided to go in and ask the about it. When I opened the door I immediately noticed they had the vintage (looking) cruiser I've really been wanting, but I didn't want to make a big fuss. I was completely okay with purchasing a used bicycle if it was reasonably priced. (you know I live for a bargain treasure) I asked the owner about the bike outside and then Lambert said, lets look at the new bike you've been wanting. The owner said well this bike is already sold, see here it has a sold tag... to SHELLY!!! I was a little confused and was wondering if there could be another Shelly.... Lambert had it all set up!!! They put the other pink bike out front as a DECOY and I fell for it hook line and sinker!!! I could not believe my Lambert pulled this off for me. I think he's a keeper for sure! I sooo don't deserve him. We had a wonderful Saturday evening dinner at The Salt Water Grill... a must if you're ever in Galveston. It's off the Strand and not a chain restaurant. the food is to die for and they have wonderful seasonal specials. Sunday morning Lambert told me the surprises weren't over yet...I thought we were headed to I-Hop for breakfast when he escorted me to the San Louis Spa... It was a morning of relaxation and pampering. He and Hoot had breakfast and then made their way to the pool while, I was scrubbed, rubbed, smoothed and polished at the spa. I spent the rest of the day with two great guys and could not have been more blessed! So.... it was indeed a good Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I sure hope all of you moms had a wonderful day too.
Proverbs 31:30-31
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. 31 Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
