Aloha Follow Friday – The Mother’s Day Edition

Happy !

From Kailani at An Island Life:
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So on Fridays let’s take it easy on posting, too. Ask a simple question…nothing that requires a lengthy response. It’s a great way to make new blogging friends!

It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday.  So my question to you is:

Are you planning to do anything special for Mother’s Day?

Whether it be for your mother or the mother of your children or yourself (depending on if you are the mother).  If you read my post from yesterday, you’ll know that I’m still working on my hubby about defining what Mother’s Day is really for.

Meanwhile, I’ve told him I don’t want to have to cook at all on Sunday and just have a nice relaxing day.  I’m going to suggest getting steaks for the grill so he doesn’t mess up my pots and pans and kitchen with a mysterious concoction of cooking.  Otherwise my ‘day after’ would be labor intensive, which would then cancel out the relaxation mode from Sunday.

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  3. Nope i don’t think we have anything special planned on that day.. given the fact that our moms are well all the way back home.. We’ll call them yes and maybe send some flowers through internet services .. that for sure will get there in time better than gifts:)

    Aloha!

  4. For the first time in many years, I am not cooking! We usually go to my mom’s house and I make lasagna & sides. This year, we’re hosting it at my house but hubby is grilling! And I will be relaxing by the pool! =D

  5. Not completely sure what we are doing. We want to have lunch or dinner with my mother since she is local. Aside from that we are debating going to Six Flags (but going to be really chilly) or perhaps a movie. Just not sure what to do at this point. Time

  6. For Mother’s Day, I am driving my daughter, Gina to the Newark NJ airport so she can catch a flight to Ireland. I didn’t realize it was a 2 hour drive from her house tot he airport, but she’s saving $200 by not flying out of Philadelphia. And I live an hour from her!

  7. My daughter in CA had some enormous steaks delivered to me yesterday so we will barbecue on Sunday and take it easy too. I don’t want to cook or clean or do any work on Sunday. So I know how you feel. I hope you have a wonderful relaxing fun Mothers Day!

  9. My husband’s birthday is Saturday. So unfortunately we have to mostly celebrate that. Darn it! 🙂

    But I made sure that the plans involve something I LOVE too!! So we both win.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. Seriously, I just need PB to come home. Then I want to spend time with the boys where neither of them is whining or outright crying because I’m giving the other too much attention.

    Happy Mother’s Day to you and the Princess!

  11. happy Mother’s day weekend. (note the stretching out of that? week-ennnndddddd) not day… 🙂 I do hope you are pampered. As a suggestion for the sides to go with teh steak? maybe salad which should only take a cutting board, and bowl and water? 🙂 or he could go crazy nad get some premade pasta salads at the Grocerysstore? That might work, and be less intensive?
    I bought a ham it only has to boil. It shouldn’t be that hard right? I hope…

  12. I completely agree with your post from yesterday. My husband is the same way, but he knows I’ll be sad if he doesn’t give me something and he doesn’t want me to be sad.

    I’m hosting brunch for my mom and my mom’s mom. We’ve done it for three years in a row now, and I just love it. I love getting to spend time with my grandparents… and of course, my mom. But I see her every week, so my time with my grandparents is a teeny bit more special.

  13. My mum is gone, but in honor of her this mothers day I will be going and passing out flowers to all the mothers at our nursing home….then out to dinner at her favorite eatery;)

  14. I don’t know what is on the agenda for Sunday, but on Monday we are going away on a little mini-break with our daughter to a cabin in the country and to visit a dinosaur park and safari park. Not exactly lounging on the beach somewhere or soaking it up in a luxury spa but you know what, I am so looking forward to it.

    Wishing you a wonderful, wonderful Mothers Day and definitely, do not do any cooking!
