Sunday's Getting to Know You & Happy Mother's Day!

Wishin' all the momma's, grand-momma's, and soon-to-be momma's out there a Happy Mother's Day!

I know this is a day of celebration for me because I am blessed to not only BE a mom, but also to HAVE a great mom. But I know this day is painful for so many people. People who don't have a mom in their life, or who wants to be a mom and isn't. I honor those people today as well!

I had a great day today. Mother's Day started last week for me with the best gift ever - my gym membership. But the hubs also gave me a full body massage before bed last night, and even helped the kiddos make hand-made cards for me....so sweet. After a wonderful service this morning, we had a quick lunch at home then headed to my parent's house to cook dinner for my mom and hang out with my family...it's not often we all get together.

MOM: Thank you for who you are. You have taught me so much about what it means to love without condition, live life to the fullest, and smile in the midst of heartache. You are one of the strongest women I know, I love you forever!

Now, on to Sunday's Getting to Know You. I've been wanting to participate more, and I just have been so crazy busy lately.....

The questions..
1. What has been your most memorable Mother's Day? (with your mom, as a mom, or with your wife)
I'd have to say that my first mother's day was pretty special.....I had just finished college as well, but didn't go to graduation, since I had JUST had a baby....so the hubs surprised me with a dinner @ Bucca de Bepo with some of my favorite friends and my new baby girl. It was a special day for me.

2. Have you ever been pulled over for speeding and were you able to talk your way out of it?
I have been pulled over for speeding. Just recently actually. I don't know that I talked myself out of it but I was pretty convinced that the officer was flirting with me. It was very awkward, but no ticket so I won't complain!

3. What's the oldest thing you have hanging in your closet?
I actually have a gray zip-up hoodie from I think 8th grade! (That's 1996 people - 14 years?!?)

4. Do you whiten your teeth?
I don't right now, but I have. I did before my wedding. I should probably do it again.

5. Underwear or Panties..What do you call your "unmentionables"?
Underwear. I'm not that fancy.

6. If you could go on vacation right now..today..where would you go?
Either to tour Europe or to lay on the beach somewhere with palm trees.

7. Do you get offended when people cuss on their blogs?
Not necessarily offended, but they lose a lot of credibility with me. I just think it's unnecessary and just makes people sound unintelligent for not being able to find proper vocabulary to convey feelings. I'm all for a well placed cuss word for humor's sake, but not when it's out of anger. It just bugs me.

8. If you had to give up one luxury item, it would be....?

Wow, this is tough. Maybe sweet tea since I haven't had much lately. No, WAIT. I take it back, I didn't really mean it, I'm so sorry! I may never be able to look at a glass of sweet tea again without guilt.

Wonderful tribute to your mother. And to those who are not yet mothers.

Europe or a beach. Me too!
Pulled over once, almost cried. Got out of it.
The oldest thing in my closet. A shirt I wore when I was 16 that has great sentimental value.
One luxury item I would give up? Awww man. Sooo hard.

Popped in from SITS to say hi! What a sweet Mother's Day Q&A! When I got pulled over, I bawled like a baby. And still got a ticket!

Happy belated Mother's Day to you. I wish I'd read this yesterday and I could have stolen your idea to ask for a massage!

Great mother's day post! Your family is beautiful by the way!

Ok I'll answer one of these questions. Yes I've been pulled over, quite a few times, and I've talked my way out of all but one ticket. Tears seem to work the best or tell the cop you're getting your period, if its a guy and your tampons is about to explode. LOL! That always works!

Thanks for being a part of my SITS day, sorry it's taken so long to get through all the comments but I wanted to swing by and say a big hi and a big thanks. Your time and words mean the world to me.

Lots of yummy love,
Alex aka Ma, What's For Dinner?
