How I Spent Mother’s Day Round-Up

dawnblogtopus happy mother's day

I hope that all of you mothers out there had a great Mother’s Day! I personally had a great one. Thanks for asking.

My Mother’s Day actually started on Saturday when my in-laws drove down to come visit us. They live about 3 hours away, so it’s always a nice treat when they visit…Hello, I get to have solo bathroom visits and even get to take naps! My Mother-in-Law wanted to go to the Chinese buffet for dinner, and honestly, I wasn’t too enthused, but when we get there I discovered something strange and wonderful and different on the buffet…Tacos! Yes, delicious and delightful homemade tacos with tons of chopped up cilantro. Yummy!

Sunday, actual Mother’s Day, I was completely undisturbed until 10 AM! That’s practically a record sleep-in, and I enjoyed every moment. Shortly after that, we went out to brunch. It was quite a long wait, but luckily the local brunch place we go to has free coffee while you wait. It’s actually a whole coffee station with about 6 different blends and multiple different flavored syrups that you can add. Brunch was rather “meh”, I ended up giving the last half of mine to hubby, my personal garbage disposal.

Since “every time is the right time to nap™” I instructed the family to drop the baby and myself at home for a nice nap. Well, it would have been nice to nap, but the baby kept kicking me in the face, so we just relaxed.

Dinner was at my local hometown restaurant, it’s actually located in my neighborhood, as we go there fairly often. They have the best steak tips, and last night was no exception! Yummy!

All in all, I had an excellent Mother’s Day! How was yours? Did you do anything special?

Love, DawnBlogtopus

    Happy Mother’s Day to my favorite new friend. We had dinner at my house Sat night with the hub’s fam. I cooked – DH cleaned up.
    Dinner with my parents on Sunday. My mom makes the best lasagna. Nom Nom Nom.
    I took a nap both days. I feel so blessed to have my fabulous littles. Even if the 6 yo is a bucket of sass.

      Happy Mother’s Day to the Mama who saves the most! Muumm lasagna sounds delicious, when you finally decide to come to Boston you’ll have to bring some. It’ll be like the toll to enter my house. And then we’ll shoo the girls upstairs to play Shopkins and we’ll get out 2 forks and have our own private lasagna lunch buffet. Awww yeaaaa.

    Looks like you had a good Mother’s Day – sleeping in until 10AM is something I haven’t done in two+ years! Hope you get another day for a good nap.

    I’m in Orlando! I spent the day with some family and my best friend. We went out for breakfast and lunch! Then I went out dancing!!! I didn’t even see my son on mother’s day because he was with my mother! I am so greatful for this mini vaca! Having an entire 24hours of alone time was very much needed! I am so happy you were able to find the bright side at the buffet! I had the same experience at a restaurant today- the food that saved me was the cereal bar! Haha! Glad you enjoyed your mother’s day!
