Homes everywhere need cleaning - but few homeowners have the time and energy required to scrub surfaces day in and day out. Mom’s, in particular, are overburdened - and as a result, many are turning to semi-regular cleaning so that their place stays spotless.…
Like so many modern celebrations, Baby Showers have arrived in the UK from North America. It’s a real tradition over there and, like High School Proms, Halloween and Black Friday, one of those exciting social events that is catching on big time over here.
The idea is simple but universally appealing. Throw a party for the pregnant mother and her…
What's on the schedule for Mother's Day? Or if you're reading this after Mother's Day, what did you do?
Do you like to have a quiet day with your immediate family, or do you open the doors to all family and friends? Do you like to get away for a few hours by yourself or do you want your kids around you all day? Brunch out or in?
For me, I like to stretch Mother's Day to Mother's Weekend. ;) Seriously, we usually see my parents and my in-laws on Sunday - both are within driving distance so we do a half day at one and then half day at another. And since that presents us with a very busy Sunday, I like to do some things on Saturday just for myself.
So today (Sat) I'm going to try to get out of the house for a much needed pedicure and we'll probably order in dinner so I don't have to cook tonight.
On Mother's Day we usually avoid doing brunch out a restaurant - we find them to be too busy and the food usually isn't as good as on a normal Sunday. My sister and I will put together a brunch at home for my mom. In the afternoon we'll be at my in-laws and I think we'll be ordering in some good Italian food for dinner - yum! My kids will be so excited to see their cousins that I don't think they'll be bothering with me so much. ;)
So for me, the perfect Mother's Day is spent with our family including my mom and my husband's mom. And seeing what the kids made at school for me. My almost-3-year-old already let her surprise card slip. =)
Well, not really much is planned today. My daughter has given me all of her gifts she made at school - you know the ones you're unsure of what they are, but undoubtly your most precious gifts ever. My son on the other hand really could care less what day it is and I'm surprised he is up before noon. I hope everyone has a great Mother's Day! Enjoy.
I am relaxin' today. DH is off Monday so I have a long Mother's day weekend:) I will send 1 off to school then use my gift certificate to go shopping. Then Next Weekend off to see my mom and Grandma- Yeah!
