Mother’s Day

“You are kind-hearted, hospitable, cheerful and well-liked.”

I’ve never celebrated Mother’s Day while staying in place before. It’s definitely different. What should I expect–backyard flowers? (Not to knock those. In my childhood, I used to cut our backyard roses and place them in a vase for my mom.)

As it turned out, no backyard blooms for me. (This, though, may have more to do with the fact that I have a black thumb when it comes to gardening.)

My family did an amazing job of gifting me with…no cooking and cleaning ALL DAY long! Which felt amazing!

I woke up to some happy balloons.

And more balloons on the breakfast table! (Yes, for some reason I had these random oddly-shaped balloons lying around the house.)

I got to wear my book launch dress for the day because I figure I should get some use out of it! (Note the design.)

Pasta was on the menu for lunch, and I did consider changing my clothes. But since I didn’t actually have to cook it, I thought the chances of getting splattered with red sauce extremely low. (The dress made it through the meal intact.)

Dinner turned out to be a sushi fest!

How was your Mother’s Day?

Foodie Friday: Easy Spinach & Bacon Quiche
Wordless Wednesday: Growing Scallions


  1. I like the balloons. Yummy food. :)

  2. The balloons are funny! Cute idea from your kids. The dress is lovely! I’m glad you had a great day, Jennifer. My kids were not with me this year but I spoke with them and my husband cooked me a yummy dinner. Very Japanese in fact. And since he also planted many rose bushes along our driveway I also had roses!

      It’s great to have the kids around–makes it more festive!

      So happy that you were able to enjoy a delicious dinner and get some rose bushes (extra flowers for next year, too!).
