Sometimes, even when it isn't Mother's Day, I go to the Farmer's Market near where I live and pick up some tulips for my mom and my self. They always seem to make any day a lot better!
In addition to flowers, we might go on a weekend trip for Mother's Day to Weston, MO, a cute small town about an hour away from where I live. They have a lot of old shops that would be fun to visit. Maybe I'll have the owner at the hotel put some tulips in our room before we get there!
