Mother's Day Traditions

Wednesday, May 8, 2013


My very first Mother's Day with Max. 

I love Mother's Day.  It is one of my favorite "fun" holidays.  I love that there really is no pressure when it comes to this holiday.  To me it is not about buying gifts or stressing about making a giant feast or worrying about who you might irritate if you can not show up.  It is just purely about celebrating the fact that you are a mom (or have a momma), which truly is one of the greatest gifts in the world.  Ever since I have become a Mom myself it is a holiday that I get excited about and always look forward to.  I love waking up to homemade scribbled on cards, macaroni necklaces, and a messy egg breakfast (with a few eggshells because of the tiny kitchen helpers).  And lets be real a day where foot massages are given out freely and not having to cook one meal or clean up a single dish is my kinda day.  Every year we usually wake up early, have our eggshell egg omelet, and head down to the beach for the morning, doing whatever it is we decide to do.  So simple and I love it.  I will also be seeing my Mom later that day for an afternoon of pedicures and girly drinks.  I can't wait.

I would love to hear what you do on Mother's Day.  Have you started any traditions yet that you look forward too?   And if this is your first one (so exciting) enjoy every single moment!

Sounds like you're in for a great day! My mother's day tradition is to meet up with my mom and sister and go out for dinner and shopping or a movie. I'm so looking forward to it!!

Couldn't agree more about pedi's and drinks! I plan on spending the day with my mom and definitely brunch with champagne and bloody Mary's.

Those are the without a doubt perfect things to do on Mothers Day! And the macaroni necklace and egg breakfast things are so adorable!

that sounds perfect. i don't see my mom on mother's day so i always send roses and a small gift i think she'd like. but if i was around her i would totally treat her to breakfast and some time at the spa. it's time together that is always the best gift.

I used to bake and also make dinner for my mom but these days I have no time. This year I ordered a cake from beaverton bakery and asked my dad to grill something and I'll make a side. At least I'll be able to spend time with her!

I am literally due to pop with our second baby any day so I'm thinking it is going to be pretty low key this year! Probably a pedicure and dinner out somewhere...though I am seriously missing the wine that normally goes with it!
