Celebrate – Belated Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms reading this! I hope you had a gorgeous day! Also more Mother’s Day hugs and kisses to my own dear mom. If you haven’t already guessed, my mom and I are pretty close. I cannot describe how much she means to me, how selfless she is, and what an amazing inspiration she is to me. Not only is she my mom, but she is also one of my closest friends. Yesterday we celebrated Mother’s Day at her house – it was wonderful!
Bake – For Mother’s Day I made these delicious Pink Lemonade Cupcakes. I posted the recipe on BHG’s Delish Dish this past Friday. You can check that out here.
Shop – On Friday Mom and I began our spring flower shopping. I feel like I need to do a flower-haul to show you guys what I got. Shopping for flowers, as I mentioned on Friday, is one of my favorite things to do!
Plant – I was also thrilled to find this fun little tree at Walmart of all places. The label calls it a Eugenia Topiary. The store had three of them and I decided to buy them all. I kept one and gave one to my mom and another to my dad’s wife. Everyone loved them.
Drink – We found a new (and absolutely delicious) spot for dinner. It’s called Buck’s Pizza. At first I assumed it was a local place, but after googling to find their website, I discovered that it’s a franchise. Who knew? The one near me just opened recently. The food was great, the service was quick, and to top things off, they serve Blue Moon! A winning combination!
Read – I was so excited to get this new cookbook from my friends at BHG. It looks amazing. I can’t wait to dig into it. It should be perfect for the summer. I’m not sure if it’s available for purchase yet. I’ll keep you posted.
Travel – Speaking of BHG, I’m heading back to NYC later this week for a fun and meaningful event with them. I’m thrilled to again be in the city for a few days. Stay tuned for details on that!
Other than Mother’s Day, my weekend was pretty uneventful. It was a bit chilly around here with temperatures dropping below freezing at night and snow flurries during the day. Yuck! This cold weather needs to go!
Any who, what exciting things did you do or find?
