My Mothers day!

So I've been really stressed lately having two kids now. With Mike being gone all the time I just havent had time to have some "me" time and thats pretty much ever since Kadee was born. Anyway a couple of days ago I just started to literally have a melt down which i think stems from a bit of post partum depression, so Mike came home from school early, took the girls, made an appt for me to get a massage and told me not to come home all day. It was nice but I was really bored and the massage i got didnt feel too good I think she actually gave me bruises. I walked around the mall in a desperate attempt to find a pair of jeans, I think I went to every store that sold jeans and seriously absolutely every store I went to had those skinny jeans that dont look good on anybody and then a couple of regular pairs that were ugly. So lets just say i was pretty frustrated. So i go home and walk in the door and look around expecting to find a disaster zone but it was almost as if i saw sparkles on the walls and counter. Everywhere i turn in my house I could smile and relax, it was like a ginormous weight came off my shoulders and I was able to breathe. Mike had cleaned the house top to bottom, done all the laundry, did the dishes, cleaned the kitchen, cleaned out our closet, cleaned our laundry room and took care of the girls. To top the rest of that he gave me anothe back massage which kicked the massage girls butt! He took care of Kloe that night so I could sleep and then saturday I didnt have to do a thing. Sunday I woke up to breakfast in bed which was great and got some beautiful flowers and a cute card. He took care of everything so i didnt have to do anything. He made a great dinner, He made bbq steak and bbq chicken with baked potatos that werent so baked. they were in the oven for 2 hours and still werent done. He made a wonderful 2 layer cake with a cream cheese filling and chocolate frosting then decorated the top with the rest of the cream cheese icing. He sang Happy Mothers day to me and i got to blow out 2 candles since ive been a mom for 2 years. It was really cute! I had a great weekend which really helped me a lot. Mike was really great, I Love Him!
