Weekend Wishes

{my mom and the two who made me a mom}

Happy Friday!!
Thank goodness it's the weekend and really thank goodness it is almost summer break!
{I'm over making lunches, schedules, homework, getting everyone up...}

This weekend will be a fun one!
Tonight I get get to see Rob Lowe with my sweet daughter and her friend. {They love him in Parks and Rec and I love him in everything from the 80's}.  It should be an interesting show...hopefully, he looks as dreamy in person as he does on the screen!

Tomorrow will be a busy day of setting up for a birthday party. Although Randi's birthday is at the end of the month, we are partying tomorrow night with her friends.  It will be a backyard party with lots of food, candy, beignets, popcorn, and an outdoor movie theater. 

As much as I am looking forward to the party, I'm bummed to miss Cade's play-off game tomorrow evening. He played so well the other night...pitching like a champ.  Fortunately, the score is kept live on an app, so I can see how we are between serving lots of 17 year olds!

Sunday...Mother's Day.
After I teach my cycle class, I will be indulging myself with a 90 minute massage, one hour facial, sugar and foot scrub...ahhhhh! The rest of the day will be spent lounging poolside and ordering to go from Pita Jungle.  

It has taken me lots of years, but I have learned to not make any elaborate plans for Mother's Day. I have cooked for everyone {I was exhausted},  gone out of town {I was ridden with guilt}, and done nothing {I actually did all my normal chores for the day...laundry, cooking, dishes, etc}. This year, we are not inviting anyone over. I'm doing my own thing for a few hours then I will hang with my loves. We are ordering take out, so I don't have to clean up anything. {Even when Mr. C cooks, I typically still clean...I have control issues}.  
To be honest, I'm not a fan of Mother's Day. Shouldn't we appreciate moms every day?! These holidays just add extra pressure.  {Actually, all holidays do}!  Let's just live. Live with hearts full of happiness and gratitude. 

I am, however, extremely grateful for my mom {on Mother's Day and every day}. 
She is one of a kind. 
Her strength, courage, and heart have guided me to become the mother I am. 

Here's to a weekend full of motherly love and guided hearts! Cheers!
