We are getting together for brunch. Mom has everything that she needs so there will be no presents.

For my husband's Mother, a gift certificate to Macy's, for my daughter a gift certificate to her favorite clothing store. She is a good daughter inviting us for all occasions including today. My Mother passed away two years ago.

I want to take a load of manure to my mom. I have some compost from my horse and really need to get rid of it. Mom has a bunch of bushes and trees and flowers. I think it is a good match. She loves her flowers.

My family referred to Mother's day as a Hallmark holiday - yet we still do stuff.

However I am too busy to see Mom (doctoral program), thought I could drive down, but no time - thinking I could drive down I skipped ordering a an expensive give (twas thinking Boudins) now I am begging like heck to get a shift covered so I can get her birthday off!!!

If I get her birthday off I'll go visit and spoil her rotten, but Hallmark is losing this one.

A Macy's gift card for my Mother-in-law and a gift card to her favorite store to my daughter. My Mother died two years ago. My husband bought me gym clothes, what looks to be the biggest card from the card store and is taking me out to dinner. emoticon

I know she wants some flat dress shoes. I found one pair today. I'm going to see if I can find another pair tomorrow.

If I can't find another pair of shoes, I did find a really nice St. Francis yard statue.

I actually ordered a nice little bracelet for her but it was out of stock.

I took her out to lunch instead earlier this week. I don't want to go on the actual day as it will be super crowded.

A new tea kettle and a Swiffer Wet Jet. She is very practical and this is what she wanted!

I got my mom a small status of the Virgin Mary. She is going thru a tough time right now.

I was with my Mom shopping last tuesday evening........ she wanted to look at t-shirts in Kohl's...... she picked out 2 she liked and I said give them to me and I'll pay for them and get them for you for mother's day! She liked that idea and then since I paid for those she picked out 2 other ones she wanted........ and then I bought our dinner........ we had a nice evening out just the 2 of us........

She's 90 and lives with us, and wants to think she is contributing to the housework. Bought her a little lightweight stick vacuum.

I sent mom a novel (Hunger Games) that is current and would not be in her exchange library. Also sent her a new type of Starbuck's coffee as she loves coffee and likes to try new things.

My Mother lives in Oregon & I live in Texas. I have failed miserably in the past at sending something through the mail - I just never get the package to the Post Office. This year I sent flowers.

I'm going to get her some flowers, a card and take her out to eat.

5/11/12 10:48 A

Flowers. I had ordered flowers the same week I ordered my fiances cake for his surprise birthday party. Later that week my fiances mother passed away. So I have 2 orders of vases with cut flowers, one for my mom and one for his but I don't want to put the flowers at her grave. Not sure what I'll do with them yet.
