Mother's Day Weekend 2018

Happy Monday, friends! I had such an amazing weekend with the family. Here are some highlights:

On Friday, I made yummy tuna poke, salmon ceviche and two types of almond flour cookies! I also did some laundry as I knew we would be busy for the rest of the weekend.

On Saturday, after breakfast, we headed to Buffalo to update D's passport and well as it was Mother's Day weekend, I figured we would go shopping at some of my very favourite places (read: Target, Trader Joe's and Nordstrom Rack)

I love the Sugarfix Bauble Bar Collection at Target! I'm also into their new Hearth and Hand line by Joanna Gaines. 

Once more, TJ's flower selection knocked it out of the park. Picked up a few kid lunch box snacks- like freeze dried okra--- let's see what the verdict is on that one LOL. My kids love real okra so I figured I would give it a shot.

We stopped in one of D's favourite wineries in Vineland on our way back.

The country drive was so beautiful

Dinner was amazing! King crab legs are my love language.

 A little family squinty selfie before we came home to yep more laundry, packing away our purchases and an early night.

My family gave me a Mother's Day massage and beautiful presents. C did an iMovie which made me quite weepy :-). Good violin and piano playing by your kid does that. A also gave me a "bag of tea" and a book of coupons. A minute I cashed in the coupon for her to be cheerful that day, it was null and void. 

D made these delicious sugar free cream cheese pancakes for us all.

I did yoga at home, D took A to skating and then we headed to brunch. 

I had too many oysters and shrimp to count.

I catched up with a lot of family over the phone and on Facetime before C and I went for an evening walk. I got rid of some dandelions, D barbequed some turkey burgers and we hung out with the kids before calling it a night.

And that, my friends was Mother's Day 2018 :-). How was yours?

Linking up with Biana for weekending.
