May showers bring in the holiday of Mother’s Day. For many this brings up thoughts of homemade gifts and breakfast in bed that the husband and kiddos cooked. Boy do I hope the trend in my house changes because we generally have someone sick or another matter that out ways Mother’s Day.
For the last 5 years all I have wanted for Mother’s Day is breakfast in a restaurant. Breakfast is my favorite meal to eat out because, well really it’s my favorite meal, period. Breakfast in a restaurant before the crowd gets there and not some $30 per a person buffet. I am starting to see that this may never actually happen. Between someone getting sick, a best friends wedding or hosting an exchange student I am aiming my standards a little lower or at least a different direction.
This year I am looking for something homemade from the boys and my husband cooking a meal, preferably breakfast (hint, hint Cory). Perhaps a drive in the mountains to scout some summer camping spots.
Whatever your hopes are this Mother’s Day I encourage you to make it special for your own mother. Below are 25 Mother’s Day gifts and recipes, ways to spoil your mother, and I think everyone should pick at least one from the list or any list for that matter! Whether it’s breakfast in bed, flowers hanging out in a newly decorated flower pot or even just a phone call to say thanks. Please don’t forget your mother this Mother’s Day. It’s a simple holiday to most but one that can mean so much to so many with the smallest of gestures.
