This Sunday is Mothers Day, and I get to spend it with my mom for the first time in a long time. My parents are coming into town to visit us tomorrow! To celebrate, we’re cooking her lobster for dinner (as frugally as possible).
Because I’ll be spending some much needed quality time with my parents, it will probably be quiet here until at least Monday. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Tell your mom how much you love her, and if you are a mom, take it easy! Sunday is your day. :)
Here are some posts that caught my attention this week:
