Sorry I’ve been MIA!  It was a super busy week with 3 track meets, soccer, and life all mixed together!  I am also knee deep in preparing for a garage sale, which takes up a lot of time, and floor space, to get everything organized.  Whew!

I told my family that I wanted to just hang out guilt free and read magazines on Mother’s Day while they did the housework, washed my car, and cooked meals.  Besides a healthy, happy family, what more could a mother ask for??

My day started out with breakfast in bed.  French toast and strawberries!  My daughter found the recipe, and it was sooooo delicious.

My Dad clearly was really impressed.

I also planted some flowers with the kids – they were hand selected by my kids as my Mother’s Day gift.

Had a delicious dessert made by Sydney.  Chocolate chip cookie brownies.  Yum!!  * Sorry, no pictures of this one.  The brownie layer on the bottom was overly gooey and didn’t look good at all.  BUT, it was good, which is all that matters 🙂  And enjoyed some fettuccine Alfredo.  Fact: my husband doesn’t like it (thinks it’s too fatty), so this was my special meal request!

All in all, it was a great day.  So glad my family made it relaxing for me!  Tomorrow, back to the daily grind.  haha!


Q:  Did you do anything special for Mother’s Day?

Q:  Do you like brownies more towards the gooey side, or well baked?

Q:  What toenail color are you sporting right now?  

Black… but now covered with pink!

Q:  Alfredo sauce – yeah or nah?

  1. Happy Mother’s Day! Your day sounds lovely. 🙂 I took my mom and SIL out for breakfast and then spent the day cleaning. I should have cleaned for my mom! The pic of your hus hanging the laundry cracks me up!

    1. I was actually reading your blog the very second this comment came across! I’m looking for a recap about your successful race 🙂 🙂

  2. Sounds like a GREAT Mother’s Day!!!!!

    Love your dad’s expression in the selfie stick photo!!!!!!! Too funny!

    Love brownies chewy… Not “cake” like if you know what I mean!!!

    I am not sporting any toenail polish… That is the one thing that I never seem to find time for…. But flip flop season is here and I might need to get my toenails painted!!!!

    Oh, and I never hang up laundry! I know… Bad! Bad! Bad! All my running stiff hits the dryer! :-/

    1. It goes in the dryer?? Oh the horror!! I’ve never put mine in the dryer. I’m such a snob 🙂 That drying rack was a lifesaver, especially now that my daughter is getting a larger collection of running clothes!

      1. i really need to invest in one of those racks….. but, I have to say, my stuff is holding up 🙂
        My other runner friends can’t believe I dry stuff…. they are always telling me, “no, no, NO! Don’t do that!” LOL 😀
        I am such a rebel!!!! LOL! Or perhaps just lazy

        1. $20 at Menards! Do you have Menards near you? It’s a home improvement store, like Home Depot. You’re probably using fabric softener too, you rebel!!
