Happy Mother's Day

These sweet boys are the best thing that's ever happened to me. Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there.

I need to plan the menu for the week, and then I have a fun day planned. Here's what's on the agenda:

  • Long run, before it gets too warm. I'm hoping to do 6 miles - my first run over 5 miles in easily a year. I forgot to get fuel (shot blocks, gel, etc), so I'll be trying to power up those hills without anything. Fingers crossed.
  • Pedicure. My toes are a little "interesting" after my increased mileage lately, so this is my gift to myself. ;-)
  • Shopping. M & the boys got me a couple of super cute sandals, but he got the size wrong, so I need to exchange.
Other than that, I hope to read my book in the sunshine with a glass of wine, and eat a fabulous dinner. M is making his specialty, Persian feast. ;-) He makes beef kabobs, a special rice dish, and a yogurt cucumber sauce. It's my favorite meal ever. He also got my favorite wine, so it should be a pretty fabulous day.

And, for the rest of the week, here's what we're having:

  • Monday - M calls this "grab bag". The boys will have leftover tacos, & the adults will have leftover spaghetti & meatballs. Clear out the fridge day - we eat late because of soccer.
  • Tuesday - Leftover chicken risotto.
  • Wednesday - leftover Persian dinner. Yum!
  • Thursday - Fish & pesto pasta on the side. The boys may have chicken instead.
  • Friday - Meatloaf & some sort of side. (Meatloaf from the freezer)
  • Saturday - Chicken rice pilaf.
  • Sunday - Homemade chicken pesto pizza. We have SO MUCH basil! :-)
What are you doing for Mother's Day? I hope it's a fabulous & relaxing day.


  1. Enjoy the day! My stepkids got me an itunes card which is great, I can load up on all my favorite music. We are taking my Mom out for Dinner so we all can have a nice relaxing meal (hubby usually BBQs for us almost every weekend so this is a nice treat out) Cheers

  2. Sounds like a fabulous weekend! :) We had a crazy, busy weekend but it was nice! Ready for bed soon though, I'm exhausted!! lol!
