The Latest

May 9, 2013

Matt asked me what I wanted for Mother’s Day and I told him “something I can only give myself” and he said “what’s that?” and I replied, “time off!” So I’m checking out early this week, taking today and tomorrow for a little extra rest and relaxation! Oh, and a nice brunch in Sonoma on Sunday was my second request at one of my favorite restaurants (read about the perfect day trip to Sonoma here).

    Sonoma is my favorite place in the world – and I live in Indiana! When we visit I head to Basque every morning for coffe and a pastry. And Girl and the Fig is an all-time favorite restaurant. Hope you have a lovely Mother’s Day weekend!

    A friend and I got some time off yesterday as part of our Mother’s Day Weekend. We headed to Disneyland for the evening, kidless. So much fun! 30 min lines seem like nothing. We made a point to eat our way through each queue so we bought a munchie before each ride, including a glass of wine on one of them. Something we can never do with the toddlers. Yummy food and no Fantasyland rides were such a perfect combo. :)

  26. Happy mother’s day Kate!

    Sounds like a perfect day Monica!

  28. Happy Mother’s Day to you! Hope you had some great “off time” on your day. I know you are one hard-working momma. I got a paper locket that seals with velcro made by my kindergartener, very sweet (and stylish and cool). This year I decided to write my kids a letter on Mother’s Day. Sitting down and thinking about what I specifically love about each kid made my whole week better.
