Things I Learned this Mother's Day Weekend

Yay, I'm back and ready to share some of the super great things I learned this weekend!

I've been having some busier than normal weekends lately and I'm really looking forward to the next one with zero plans where I can sit, read a book and have next to nothing to teach you from the world's most relaxing boring weekend. 

This was not that kind of weekend! It was eventful with family brunches, workouts and the always-enjoyable company of my two golden retriever sisters. 

:: My mom is the best.
:: You guys have amazing mothers also.
:: My mom is still the best.

:: She's the best because she blogs AND she did my week's meat prep for me.
:: She also cooked brunch on her special day and didn't complain about it.


:: You guys really seemed to like the lettuce wrap tacos I made last week.
:: My brother and dad are now officially citizens of Luxembourg. Up next, me!
:: You can't give grandma an iPhone. She will comment "Bchfk. F" onto my brother's girlfriend's photo album. (editor's note: no mimosas were had)


:: I can't stay up until midnight anymore.
:: I can DO A FULL TRICEP PUSH-UP... even if it's only one right now.
:: Sometimes Mondays are exciting because I have dance class plans with Kayla!

Great weekend, I need a nap! Are you linking up with Katie today?

HA! Love the grandma story. We couldn't give my grandma a cell phone because she could never work it. She'd have it off when it needed to be on and on when it needed to be on. She never learned to lock it so she was always randomly calling people.

LOLing at Grandma! And your mom is quite awesome, I would agree with that!

P!nky said...

I give your grandma props for even touching the phone. My grandma is scared of technology. We can't even get her to use a DVD player....

Yay for moms!!!!

Go you on your one pushup! One is better than none...and better than me...so whatever!

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

I love that she did your meal prep for you! I took home the leftover steak we had from the weekend and Mark was giving me such crap about it but he wasn't complaining when I added it to the stir fry and our dinner was done in 10 minutes last night now did he? ;-) You do have an amazing mother that is for sure!

Joey said...

The grandma with an iphone thing is pretty freaking funny! Also--I'm totally jealous that your mom did your meat prep for the week. I hate meal prepping!!

Meg {henninglove} said...

i was gonna say this post better be about how awesome your mom is, what a great cook she is and how blessed you are to have her, and even though it was mothers day from your post on thurs, you learn these things about your mom every single day of the year.

Just Me, Angie! said...

Ha, keep the phone away from grandma! Ooh, what kind of dance are you and Kayla doing?

Plucky said...

Yesssss. Gotta love a momma that cooks her own celebratory meals. My Nana got an iPhone too! Fortunately, she keeps looking for the "buttons" so not too much trouble has been had so far. haha
