Mother's Day Weekend


After a long day of work on Friday, I came home to some fresh Lilies and a card from Lola for Mother's Day. Such a sweet surprise.

Happy Mother's Day!


Happy Mother's Day to all my Mama friends!

Enjoy your day!

Mother's Day Gift Ideas


Since Mother's Day is next weekend I figured I'd get the ball rolling with some gift ideas for the Mom's in our life. K and I celebrated a little early with my MIL last weekend when my in-laws came into town to visit. My mom lives too far away to give her a physical gift in person but we will celebrate ALL the occasions when my parents visit us in November.

Mother's Day Gifts


It can be tricky picking out a Mother's Day gift for a mom who has everything already and it gets even trickier when she doesn't live a short distance away.



With me living thousands of miles away from my hometown, I make great use of my Hallmark Ecard membership to stay connected and send cards to my friends and family for all occasions. It's $9.99/year so I think that's a great investment for unlimited ecards considering one card from the store costs about $3.99 on average. I have that part figured out, so now what about some gifts that are easy to order and send? (this is not a sponsored post of any sort)

These are some my favorite Mother's Day gift ideas which are also perfect if you're mom lives nearby too:






Alex and Ani - Mom Sawrovski Bangle Set



Subscription Boxes
There are so many cute options out there depending on your mom's taste or interests. Here's an article featuring 10 awesome and unique subscriptions boxes for Mom.

Day 2 - 12 Gourmet Dipped Mother's Day Strawberries



To all the moms out there: what's your favorite gift to receive for Mother's Day?


Mother's Day Gift Guide


When you think about it, who are the mothers out there? My mom fits one demographic while there are also so many mothers out there around my age (give or take 10+ years). My point is that finding a gift for "Mom" is not a one-size-fits-all deal. This guide is probably more geared toward younger mothers but I know my mom would love a few things on the list so I guess it really depends on her interests. Everything is under $100 and I've also included a few more fun activities and ideas to make your mom feel special. 




Other Fun Ideas for Mother's Day:
~ Shopping/walking around your local Farmer's Market
~ A group painting or cooking class
~ Girls day out for manis & pedis
~ Brunch with the immediate family
~ Gift card for a massage or full day at the spa
~ 1-year subscription to something she loves (Amazon Prime, her favorite magazine, a beauty box)
~ Helping out with a home project while she relaxes
~ Going out for lunch and then a movie of her choice 
~ A box of macaroons or chocolate covered strawberries


Here's to all the fabulous Moms out there and hoping you enjoy your day this coming Sunday! 


Mother's Day Brunch Ideas

It's no secret that Sunday brunch is one of my favorite "pastimes".  While I love going out for brunch at local restaurants, hosting a brunch at home would also be a great way to spend some time with your Mom for Mother's Day. I found some Pinterest pretty recipes & ideas to share:

Pineapple Coolers

Baked Eggs in Breakfast Bowls

Broccoli & Comte Frittata

Bloody Mary Shooters

Strawberry Cream Cheese Pankcake Rollups

Tea Sandwiches

Strawberry Grapefruit Mimosas

Eggs Benedict with Ham and Asparagus
 
What's your favorite Sunday brunch dish or drink?
