Did you know MOM is WOW upside down?
Did you know Mother's Day has officially been around since 1908? You really should appreciate your mom every day (hint, hint to my kids) but you really need to spoil her this one Sunday in May.
So what are your plans? I have joked in the past that the best Mother's Day for me really would be a day without my kids. Sound horrible? They can be enjoyable when they get along and are respectful but let's be honest - that doesn't happen often. If they can just give me this one day and be pleasant to each other and me, I'd be happy. And throw in some homemade gifts and cards? You got one happy momma. But if you can't give this to your mom and are stuck what to do in replacement of a nice happy Sunday I have a few ideas.
Flowers. Flowers may not last long but they sure are pretty and smell so good. Some of my favorite spots to grab some flowers? The Farmers Market, Bitterroot Flower Shop (http://bitterrootflowershop.com/) and I am also always impressed with Safeway's selection.
A Spa Day. With some really great day spas in Missoula why not help all of Mom's cares go away. A massage can carry all her worries away and feels so good or what mom doesn't like pretty toes? Some of our favorite spas include Sorrella's, Cedar Creek Day Spa and Cowgirls -http://cowgirlssalonandspa.com/.
Jewelry. And I am not talking about the fancy, expensive kind. Well, unless you can purchase that and still pays your bills. More power to you. I am talking about just some fun pieces. Apricot Lane (http://www.apricotlanemissoula.com/) in the Southgate Mall has some fun pieces mom is bound to love. Also, I personally can always find some deals and beauties at Maurice's and JC Penney's. If you feel like heading downtown One Eleven has some fun stuff and of course Rockin Rudy's never disappoints.
Brunch. Mom needs to get her nutrients for the day. Instead of just cooking for her at home how about taking her out for some yummy food Missoula has to offer. Jakers, the Montana Club, and even Brooks and Browns in the Holiday Inn are planning Mother's Day brunches.
So this one day a year make sure your Mom realizes how much you appreciate and adore her. Spoil her rotten. Why you ask? Because I said so. And I'm a mom!
