Mother’s Day is officially my new favorite holiday.

Here’s a little recap…


recap 12


On Saturday morning, I powered up for some shopping at the mall with a green smoothie while MT and Michael ran a top secret errand.




Let me just say that I had an absolute blast on my shopping trip! I got a lot of new things and cannot stop looking at everything.

Later in the afternoon, we took a family trip to the farmer’s market where, you guessed it, Michael napped the entire time.

We loaded up on produce, and I made a nice colorful salad for lunch.


recap 9


We thought about going out for dinner, but I was in the mood to spend a quiet evening at home with some Chinese takeout.

I ordered steamed mixed veggies with brown rice and added sesame oil and Bragg liquid aminos.


Sunday was the best day ever.

My boys spoiled me with gifts the moment that I woke up.




Then we enjoyed a family breakfast at Skillets.

After breakfast, we were off to visit my beautiful mother and bring her a little gift.  She was more interested in my little bundle of joy though…

The rest of the day consisted of a scenic drive in the car, a family walk around the neighborhood, and some play time on the swings.

And of course, my perfect weekend concluded with our usual Sunday evening tradition.




This mommy thing is pretty awesome.


How did you spend your weekend?  Did you get to see your own mother?

Have a great day!
