Happy Mother’s Day weekend! It’s my second year as a mom and I definitely understand why the holiday can be such a big deal. Being a mom can be hard and while it’s truly rewarding to be a parent, it’s nice to get an extra special thank you on occasion.
Matt and L have already treated me to flowers, chocolates and a pancake breakfast. We will spend the rest of the morning together (maybe get outside now that it’s not raining for the first time in a week?) and then this afternoon I’m heading out for a manicure and pedicure. Ah that sounds pretty luxurious at the moment. Not a bad Saturday at all! Tomorrow afternoon we are going to see my parents and celebrate some more with them.
So thankful for gym class this week. The weather was terrible and we went three times!
What are your plans? Are you being spoiled for all that you do as a mom or celebrating someone else? If you are still working out your celebration eats here are a few festive suggestions:
- Lemon Poppy Seed Cupcakes
- Milk Chocolate Tart with Peanut Butter Pretzel Crust (just FOUR ingredients)
- Chocolate Chunk Cookies
- Lemon Cookies with White Chocolate Chips and Strawberry Buttercream
- Perfect Chocolate Chip Muffins (super easy brunch treat!)
Now for this week’s updates….
