Father’s Day Favorites

Father’s day is a special day to recognize those father figures in our lives.  I feel like it is one of the special days that they accept the “showing” of praise and gifts. My husband is so humble and deserves nothing more than to be treated extra special on this day… I mean he puts up with one feisty red head every other day of the year! So this year I am really hoping to show him how much Tripp & I love and appreciate his hard working and loving self.  Here are some of my gift ideas for him…. what he will get is a surprise! We are also planning on a fun dinner and a trip to the Rangers game with both Grandpa’s and Uncle Sammy too!

This guy works so hard for our little family and I grow more and more proud of him [and fall more in love with him] everyday! He loves our little guy so fiercely and has been the best dad I could ever ask for.  I definitely thank God for bringing Mark into my life!

Enough of the gushing and on to the Father’s Day goodies!

My First Mother’s Day + Gift Ideas

I know, I know. I was a mother when I was pregnant but this year is so special having Tripp in my arms to snuggle and hug(he was born TWO days after Mother’s Day last year). These last few years Mother’s Day has honestly been very sad. It is hard watching so many people celebrate with their mom and you don’t get to do that.

I love that this year has brought new meaning to this holiday. I am so thankful that God chose Tripp to be my little one. He has shown me unconditional love that I have never known. He has taught me to be more carefree and less uptight. He has taught me patience and understanding and that with one little grin that he can get out of a lot of trouble.

I can’t wait to spend this Mother’s Day with my little family. Really that is the best gift of all BUT if you were to ask me some fun gift ideas for moms here is what I would suggest!

Pampering is ALWAYS a good idea for mom so a massage or mani/pedi gift card are safe bets! Click to photos below for direct links!
