    I will be hanging out here at home. (Florida) Three daughters (17, 11, and 3) as well as my hubby. Maybe grill something on the grill and soak my feet in the kiddie pool while reading on my Nook! (Although I did give the hubby the sales ads from this weekend with something circled and starred)

  2. HI!

    My plans for this weekend are to put down my ink pen and paper and chill out with the family. I’m gonna let my husband bbq, my kids bake and decorate a cake (they did such a great job last year for our anniversary.) I’ll gonna soak my feet and let my son give me a foot massage and my daughter give me a manicure and pedicure. LOL! After that, I’ll spend the afternoon playing the 360 with the kids and race cars, something I haven’t done with them since I started writing.

    Have fun with your family and Happy Mother’s Day to you!

  4. missasima says:

    Thank you for this fabulous oportunity. I love a great contest. πŸ™‚

    For Mothers Day me and my five year old son will be hanging out together. It’s just the two of us this year. Hopefully it’s nice out. I think we will go to the park, feed the ducks, and have a picnic. It will be fun. πŸ˜€

  5. msthriller says:

    Share this on your facebook wall or tweet to your friends or share on goodreads and you will get an extra entry. πŸ™‚

  6. Terri says:

    I will probably be hanging out with my mom this weekend, just doing what we usually do–talking, shopping, and playing Wii. My brother and his family may come over to hangout as well if I remind him about Mother’s Day–he tends to forget those things. πŸ˜‰

  7. kez says:

    I’m spending the day with my daughter wedding dress shopping ….can’t wait soooo excited, hope everyone out there has a wonderful day !

  8. Roseann Broz says:

    We always celebrate the day before as our moms don’t like the crowds. We will be getting together for a simple dinner.

  9. Julie Thibodeaux says:

    I expect to be home being pampered and cooked for by my husband and son. Hopefully, they will make me some steak fajitas, guacamole and fresh salsa. I will sleep late, watch some NASCAR, relax around the house and do nothing strenuous. πŸ™‚

  10. Susan says:

    I also have three fabulous children! Our plans for Mother’s Day are still up in the air, but it looks like we’ll be moving one of the fab three home from college. Thanks for the chance to win this great prize!

  11. barbara armellino says:

    This sounds amazing. What awesome prizes! Good luck everyone.

  12. Kitty says:

    I will be spending Mothers day at the Everglades National Park in Florida. Then back to the Florida Keys for a nice night out and a fresh fish dinner with friends.

  13. Jan Smith says:

    I have two grown kids. One is a firefighter and the other is an elementary school counselor. I am so proud of them and all they do. This weekend, on Saturday, I will spend the afternoon with them and my two grandkids. Then I will go buy some outside flowers, as I do each year for my yard. My daughter, daughter in law, my sister, and myself all have kindles and we consider it our “bonding” time.

  14. Samantha Weiler says:

    I will start my day by nudging my husband up to get our 2 year old daughter….hopefully I will get to sleep in, tough for me when I can hear commotion upstairs (we all sleep in the basement!!).
    Then I will enjoy my family, hopefully either eat out for lunch or dinner or at least order in. Last year I dug out the easement while our daughter napped, this year may be the vegetable garden or the side flower gardens, not sure which!
    And that is how I wil spend my day with my fab family πŸ™‚

  15. Lisa S says:

    I’ll just be hanging at home let my family take care of me for a change. I’m hoping my kids will take me out to eat.

  16. Leslie Beasley says:

    i will be spending it at home with mt husband and and son. first one witout my mom

  17. jennifer byrkit says:

    I am going to send all of my special friends (mothers) a wonderful ecard for Mother’s Day. I am a mother, but my kids are grown so I will make sure my friends feel appreciated this weekend with a special great mother ecard.

  18. Crystal says:

    Well of course I will be sleeping in πŸ™‚ my husband usually takes the kids out riding and lets mom have a day of piece and quiet. So far this year we haven’t any real plans but I’m sure it will be lounging and reading my kindle. The family will make mom dinner and my youngest has a very exciting present to give mom he made at school. Can’t wait to see what they made this year.. Happy Mothers day to all the moms!!!

  19. Jackie Paulson Author says:

    Thank you for having a contest. I have to work on Mother’s day but will celebrate it with family during the week, dinner at my sisters house. She is a fabulous cook.

  20. Bridget says:

    Every year (before this one) I’d take my Mom out for a nice dinner and we’d see a movie. In January though I moved 2000 miles away from home so I’ll have to settle for a nice long phone call. I have already mailed a special card though.

  21. Melissa Sutton says:

    Provided that the weather is nice (we’ve had lots of rain), then I plan on taking the kids to our favorite park for a picnic and then a nice long walk on the trails. That also means photo time (love taking pictures of them). I’m a single mom and just enjoy spending quality time with them. Then later in the day, I’ll kick back with a good book and have some “me” time.

    Thanks for the chance at a great prize.

    Happy Mother’s Day!

  22. Kimberly says:

    I’ll be celebrating it by taking my Mom out to lunch and on a shopping trip! She rarely spends money on herself so I intend to force her to.

    Happy Mother’s Day!

  23. Ellen Archer says:

    I will be spending Mother’s Day the best way I can imagine: with my 2 teens. I had some ideas but when I went to them they looked at me like I was crazy. As my son said, “We’re not little kids Mom. We have this under control.” My daughter said the same thing, basically, “We’ve got things planned for you Mom. We think you’ll be happy.”

    I’m already so happy they remembered Mother’s Day on the own and made plans without any help from me! πŸ˜€

  24. Heather Lanham says:

    I have to work on Mother’s Day this year. Instead my son and I will be spending the day together on Saturday, some lunch, probably a movie, and the rest depends on our flooding situation here. This will be my first ‘official’ mother’s day. Ethan is my husbands biological child. March 16th of this year the adoption was finalized and Ethan is now legally my son. πŸ˜€

  25. Tammy Garrett says:

    I will be spending the weekend with my family; my husband of 21 years, our two wonderul children, my parents, and my brother and his girlfriend and her three children. We will be having a cookout at my parent’s home and just enjoying family time together.

    My husband lost his mother after a long battle with cancer a couple of years ago, and we all miss her so very much. I know that I am blessed to still have my mother with me and I am so thankful.

    I wish all of you mother’s, step-mother’s, grandmother’s, great grandmother’s etc. an absolutely wonderful “Mother’s Day”.

  26. gayle neumeister says:

  27. Lisa S says:

    I posted this on my FB page.

  28. Larisa Morgan says:

    This year, I don’t have much planned. Will be haning out with my husband and daughter. They are taking me to dinner. This is a difficult day for me since my mother passed away after her battle with breast cancer in 2009. I miss her terribly.

  29. Marilyn K says:

    I will be spending the day with my kids and grandkids. I think we are going out to dinner, most likely to the Japanese Steakhouse that we all like. I asked for hanging baskets to hang on my porch, so that should be an easy gift and something I want.

  30. Jackie says:

    We’re going to brunch at a nice restaurant on Sunday and then I’m spending the rest of the day doing exactly what I want. Probably some sewing and some reading!

  31. chandreyee majumder says:
