Monday Musings

This Monday Musing is the Mother’s Day edition! You’ve got 6 days. So buckle up, settle in and hurry up… You’re mama deserves a little attention this month and I’ve made it easy to treat her special!

1| Serve up the perfect Mom’s Day brunch with the Magnolia Table Cookbook. May I suggest one of everything? But, no really – start with JoJo’s Biscuits with a side of Bobo’s Classic Gravy. Prep the Three-Cheese Quiche or the Sausage & Hash Brown Casserole. If you are craving something more savory, go for the Bacon & Gruyere Drop Biscuits. For something a bit more sweet bake Cinnamon Squares! Cook breakfast for your mama, she’s earned it!

2| Know a mama who loves to curl up and read a delicious book? Does she love to escape into fiction, grow through personal development or plan travel? May I suggest a few favorites: The Bucket List: 1000 Adventures Big & Small, That Month in Tuscany, One Day in December, Get Over Your Damn Self or The Most Powerful Woman in the Room is You.

3| Help mom rejuvenate with a whole lot of self care supplies. Soon Skincare has something for every aspect of in-home self care. Get mom a bit of everything. Start with the Smooth Operator Hand and Foot Mask Bundle, make sure she also get the Seoul Mates Duo for her eyes and lips and of course mom needs The Soon Starter Kit which includes face masks too.

4| If in-home self-care is not your mom’s thing, send her to the spa. Here in Arizona, The Royal Palms Alvadora Spa is a special treat and an incredibly luxurious retreat and escape. Give mom a couple of hours of time alone. She’ll be ever so grateful.

5| All mama’s love memories. And there is no better gifts than thoughtful ones. Hit a home run and make your mama a Mixbook photo album full of memories, moments and loving messages. She sure would cherish that forever.

6| Because sometimes mama just wants a sweet treat! And y’all know I’m obsessed with Levain Bakery’s Chocolate Chip Cookies (copy cat recipe here – without nuts). For Mama’s Day, order up her favorite (Levain Bakery Cookies) and ship those babies straight to her door… She’s worth it!

7| This gift isn’t so sweet, but let’s be honest, moms generally put themselves last. Last in so many ways. So this Mama’s Day give her a gift card to her favorite store so that she is forced to spend money on herself once and for all. I love Nordstrom, the local nail salon, VICI Collection and so many others. It’s a gift that will keep on giving.

8| I joke with the Mr all the time that all I really want is a night alone, with room service, all access to movie channels and a spa treatment after room service breakfast in the morning. That one night alone and I would sleep like a rock and be fully rejuvenated. Hotel Montelucia here is AZ is a perfect spot to indulge mama in such a treat.

9|¬†After all the chaos and joy of Mom’s Day settles, give her a Calm Blanket so that she can rest easy. After all the years of her tucking you in, it’s time she gets tucked in again, allows her nerves to calm and her body to rest.

10| A loving note, nothing beats a simple, yet thoughtful message that reveals your heart and happiness. Find a sweet note card at Paper Source and get writing. Words from the heart are all that really matter to a mama after all.

Happy Mama’s Day to all the mama’s out there! Without you, we’d all be nothing. Mama’s make this world go round. I see you. I love you. I appreciate you. You are doing great mama!
