Happy Tuesday my friends! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Mine was busy as usual and with it being Mother’s Day weekend that made it just a tad busier. I met up with one of the besties and spent some time with her family. And since my mother’s birthday was just 10 days before, we went furniture shopping. So let me back track for a second…I’m the type of person that don’t necessarily buy gifts for special occasions (i.e. birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries…etc.). I feel like I support my family and those alike all throughout the year, so why am I singling out just one “special” day?!?!? Anyway, my mother has been asking for bedroom furniture for months now lol…I figured why not help her out. I asked my sister and sister-cousin if they wanted to go in on it and they were on board. So long story short, took her out for her birthday lunch at one of her favorite spots (Brio) and gave her a nice birthday card and essential told her (with a picture insert like we always do) that she could start shopping for a new bedroom. So a week goes by and she’s excited to get started needless to say lol…her only restrictions were not to look at Crate & Barrel lol (not in the budget..at least not ours!!!). I’m so proud of her…she stayed at a nice price (even though she looked at Pottery Barn too lol)! So now I’m happy that she’s happy. So I just did something simple for the moms in my life…cooked Sunday lunch/dinner. Yep, this girl here cooked!!! I fixed salmon, chicken (rotisserie from Harris Teeter), cabbage, mac-n-cheese (baked from scratch nothing instant in this house), and roasted veggies…can we say YUM YUM!!!!! So how did you celebrate Mother’s Day???

Until next time…
