Not sure yet, but my son and his g/f will be home, so just quiet time and I'm sure hubby will cook something on the grill for supper.

We have a full day planned. Brunch with my mother in law & rest of the family, then we'll head over to my mom's and we'll do dinner out more than likely.

All I know is that I am not cooking or cleaning a thing that day emoticon emoticon

To remember my mom and miss her and wish she was still with us.

To call my sister and wish her a happy Mother's day.

Spending the day with Mom, we don't go anywhere though. We both hate getting out into the Mother's Day crowds. We will go out to dinner on a different night to celebrate.

We ordered her some flowers in a keepsake teapot. And added a teddy bear, to the arrangement. I ordered her a cake. She will get those on Saturday.

On Sunday, we will go to church and then we have reservations at a fancy Gastro Pub.

I am still looking for the perfect little something to give her. Possibly jewelry that means something.

Going to walk with son, daughter-in-law, grandsons, hubby, & other friends in a 5K Walk for Babies in celebration of my little grandson who born premature almost 3 yrs. ago. What a fabulous way to spend a Mother's Day weekend.

Going to my parent's house for the weekend. Dad will probably throw something on the grill Saturday as I have to drive back home Sunday afternoon. I'll probably make her something sweet to take with me for her along with her gifts.

Since I'm on a very strict diet, I do not want to eat out. My husband and kids will be making dinner at home. We're having grilled steak, grilled shrimp and spinach sauteed in olive oil and garlic.

I wish I could visit my mom, but she died a few years ago. I am not a mom myself so it will be a regular Sunday for me.

The kids want to go out, so i think we will go to Whole Foods - many have a Mother's day Brunch and it's really affordable. I already know i want the strawberry salad, mango with raspberry coulis and a wedge of quiche. Not bad for 9 dollars! :D

Making the 5-1/2 hour journey to see my mom in Pittsburgh. I haven't seen my folks since Thanksgiving so it will be nice to visit. She'll be more than spoiled as I am taking home the Christmas and Birthday presents I bought her, along with a small mothers day gift - and I plan to ask her if she'd like to cook brunch with me the morning of before we head back to Cincinnati. Should be a good weekend. emoticon

Mother's Day is the same day as my Daughter's Birthday, so I guess I will stop off at her place and give her her birthday present, on my way up to my 92yr old mother's place.

I am planning on treating my Mom to a nice meal in a nice restaurant tmrw as it will be crowded everywhere on the actual day this Sunday.

I gotta start saving again after tmrw. Gosh! I spent so much this week! Things are getting so expensive now!
