I hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day with your mothers! Ours was wonderful. It started in the morning when my sister and I woke up early and prepared a breakfast in bed for Momma.
Sorry, I had the plate over it to keep it warm and didn't think to take it off before I took the picture. :)
After celebrating in the bedroom and presenting our humble offerings wrapped up in brown paper and ribbon, we proceeded to get ready for Mass.
After a beautiful Mass we headed to our friends house for most of the day. I had made Mexican Hot Chocolate cupcakes the night before which, alas, I did not get pictures of. But apparently they were popular because by the time the girls and I returned from the airsoft war they had all vanished into thin air! Oh and yes, you did hear me correctly. I played airsoft practically the whole afternoon.
Normally I would have been absolutely horrified at such an unladylike sport, but when the boys called for reinforcements, and the other girls begged me to come with them, I decided that for this one afternoon I could throw being ladylike to the wind and have some fun. It was very.... interesting, considering I absolutely stink at shooting anything, and most of the time I was just trying not to get shot (those things hurt really bad!), but overall I did have a great time. Countless two-man airsoft wars in our own woods with my brother have at least made me somewhat familiar with the game. However, I did come home with some sunburn. I looked in the mirror later that evening and, to my sorrow, saw a nice pink stripe starting at one end of my cheek, skimming over my nose, and ending on the other side. So much for preserving my complexion this year. In all the books I read, a lady always makes every effort to keep the sun off of her face, so as not to tint her features, as that was considered very uncivilized. So, each spring I get so determined that during the warm months, I'm going to wear a hat or bonnet and sunscreen whenever I go outside, to keep the sun off my face. But each year my failure is epic when, on that one spring day (like today), it just sort of happens, and then there it is for the rest of the summer. So here I am, an unsophisticated redskin from the backwoods. Well not quite, but that's how I feel.
Well somehow I went from talking about Mother's Day to getting a sunburn in one post. Sorry for my very random ramblings! But then again, I did warn you in the title of this post.
Happy day after Mother's Day! :)
