Girl Friday

It's a big weekend here in St. Louis.

Tonight I am cashing in on mother's day 36 hours early with a night at the spa..

which is perfect because Saturday morning I need to be downtown, with my 10 year old, by 7:30 am for another 5K run...
there is a program at my daughters school called "Girls on the Run" this is a nation wide program that promotes a healthy lifestyle and good eating habits for our children. The finale of the program is the big run tomorrow.

After the run and a shower, my boy Andy will be making an appearance about 1/2 mile from my house so I must pop in and say hi...

And of course the biggest event this weekend, Mother's Day.  What I really want is to spend the entire day with my kids uninterrupted.  No soccer, no dance, no tennis lessons, no friends, no homework, nothing.  We are taking care of all our obligations on Saturday so we have Sunday to ourselves.

 A nice brunch...

A day in the park...

Afternoon tea at our french bakery...

then home where my kids will make me a gourmet meal...

To all the beautiful mothers out there...

Happy Mother's Day!!


  1. You too! You always have the best weekend plans!!!

  2. Hope you have a lovely weekend:)

  3. Sounds great!! Say hi to Andy from me! Love him.

    My parents are coming this weekend and staying overnight Saturday. I'm going out with Rich and then Sunday making my mom a nice lunch.

    Enjoy your weekend!! Happy Mother's Day Jill! xoxo

  4. Fun times!! Happy Mother's day!

  5. Sounds like a perfect Mother's Day weekend! Have a great time! And I hope your family spoils you!

  6. Enjoy your day on Sunday!

    That "Girls on the Run" program is a fantastic idea! More schools need to take up that initiative....
