Our Mother’s Day turned out completely different than we originally planned. Some change in plans and some family drama got in the way of what was supposed to be a family get together at our house. Seriously, I couldn’t be happier with what ended up happening – which was pretty much NOTHING. The three of us (me, hubby and daughter) had a lazy sunday doing random things around the house. Our main ‘cooked’ meal was the breakfast – mommy’s favourite and of course it had to be waffles! ;)
The breakfast was AWESOME! Literally. The food and my gift from a tiny two year old (how did she pull this off???), I got The Book of Awesome by Neil Pasricha.
This book is a follow up to a blog called 1000 Awesome Things. Neil posts one awesome thing in life each weekday. The topics covered on the blog are varied, and range from #981, Wearing underwear just out of the dryer, to #858,The other side of the pillow, and #773 Watching your odometer click over a major milestone. Um, by the way Neil is a Mississauga author (that’s my city near Toronto) that while focusing on the positive things in life, he’s getting 40,000 hits a day on his blog. That certainly is AWESOME!
Here I am with my daughter holding up the book. Below is the shot with my personalized dedication. Gabriella wrote ‘to mommy’, signed her own name, drew pictures of a heart, cactuses (don’t know why but they’re cactuses- that’s what she said), a tower, a yellow sky and a pink cloud. That’s so AWESOME!
If you don’t have the book yet – you MUST get it! It’s such a fun read. It will add so much joy into your life.
