Mother's Day With Point of Grace

on May 11, 2012

Shelley, Leigh, and Denise shared with us a glimpse into Mother's Day with them. See what they have to say here!

SHELLEY
Do you have a specific Mother’s Day Tradition?
Church and lunch at mom's restaurant of choice!

What are your top 5 Mother’s Day gift recommendations?
Spa gift certificate, favorite magazine subscription, home-made coupons for fun things like "practicing piano without complaining" or "sweep the porch for mom", new summer bathrobe and slippers, a home-made sweet treat

What’s the best gift you’ve ever gotten? Best ever given?
My Nespresso machine! As for best given -I honestly have NO idea. We don't do big gifts for Mother's Day.

LEIGH
Do you have a specific Mother’s Day Tradition?
Not really... I never know where I will be ( on the road or at home) so we have just always gone with the flow. If I had to name one tradition it would be that we as a family do celebrate Me and that is really all I could ask.

What are your top 5 Mother’s Day gift recommendations?
1. Not be responsible for cooking ANY meal.
2. Presents - like a 120 minute massage and 60 minute facial
3. Being able to watch all the Jane Austin movies I desire
4. A nutrageous bar to go along with watching my movies
5. A nice "allowance" to be spent at one of my favorite boutiques

What’s the best gift you’ve ever gotten? Best ever given?
The best gift was the complete BBC series of Jane Austin - over 100 hours of Jane!!! Love it so much!!! and the coffee mug my daughter painted for me. I drink out of it pretty much everyday. I am not sure I have a best ever given gift. I honestly can't remember any of them - pitiful right?

Denise
Do you have a specific Mother’s Day Tradition?
Not really, except for the fact that i don't have to cook:) Actually, when I was growing up we had these beautiful rose bushes in our backyard. For Mother's day, we would always cut fresh roses and wear them pinned to our dresses on that Sunday Morning.

What are your top 5 Mother’s Day gift recommendations?
1. If kids are little, then homemade gifts are the sweetest.
2. A Massage
3. Clean the kitchen and do all of the laundry for her and tell her to take a few hours to do whatever she wants. (Nap, sit outside and read a book, take a walk, whatever she wants)
4. A new Spring outfit
5. A hand written note of the things you love about her. or a basket of some of her favorite little things.

What’s the best gift you’ve ever gotten? Best ever given?
Oh gosh, we don't really make a big deal of it at my house. I have boys and ya know, they don't really think about those things. haha. Probably a fresh bouquet of tulips with sweet homemade cards, and of course a great steak for lunch.

Probably the best gift I've given my Mom for mother's day was a trip out to see her grandkids in Nashville and a day out shopping, eating lunch, etc.
