mother’s day was awesome

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! ;)


Our super-yummy waffle breakfast shot featuring my daughter's classic 'fake' smile.

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.

The Book of Awesome with an egg carton tulip made by my daughter in preschool.

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.
