Mother’s day is just over a week away so I thought it would be fun to share some ideas for Mother’s Day gifts! I’d love to hear your ideas too because moms are pretty much the best. Mom’s reading—> feel free to send this list to your husband or kiddos!
Brooke and I are going to go shopping this weekend for her mother’s day gift for me:)
My siblings and I most definitely lucked out to get our mom.
Here are some ideas that I came up with:)
-The most amazing smelling candle on the planet.
-Chocolate, you can never go wrong with chocolate.
-A gift certificate for a manicure or a pedicure or a massage or all three:)
-A gift card to her favorite restaurant and some movie tickets too!
-My favorite type of non-workout/pretty socks—> Stance socks. I give these as gifts a lot because who doesn’t love a pretty pair of socks?
-My mom loves to get framed pictures of her kids and grandkids… Costco does an awesome job printing out canvas ones!
-Her favorite perfume and/or lotions.
-I love Thought Blossom’s Jewelry (they don’t sponsor me or anything like that, I just talk about them a lot because I truly love their jewelry). I love that you can personalize the jewelry… mom’s love personalized things:)
-JCREW is doing 40% off of their Spring Sale items (there are a million cute tops, skirts and bracelets) and my favorite shirt (in the picture below.. it has cap sleeves) is included with that sale and a killer deal!
Today’s workout was teaching a spin class and this 10 Minute Inner-Thigh Workout! I’m trying to get in at least a tiny bit of strength/core each day!
The only problem with today’s spin class was the microphone. I walked in and it was covered in tape… yeah, it was completely busted and they didn’t have any extras so I did a lot of yelling. I may not have a voice for the next few days.
Tape doesn’t really fix electronics:)
If you are a spinner, I like to do this stretch at the end of class using the bike seat to really get that leg up there to stretch my hip flexor/quad. We climbed a lot of hills, did some sprints and jumps, a bunch of isolations (out of the saddle, all movement from the hips up is taken out—> this makes the legs really burn) and some dancing today. If you are looking for a good sweat, try out spin.
Gotta love self-timer pictures in a dark room after class.
Lunch was a winner. I am a huge fan of using uncooked flour and corn tortillas. They just taste so much more fresh when you cook them yourself.
I prefer tacos that have so many fillings that you have to use a fork to eat a bunch of them before you can actually close the taco.
Chicken, sweet potato cubes, avocado and TJ’s corn salsa.
Add another rousing game of tag to the books.
And because because every now and then you need a little caffeine to save you. I hope you noticed that I really put in a lot of effort into making this an artistic shot:
Also, Brooke told me today that she needed to blog. She grabbed a picture of herself and her laptop and got busy on the carpet. I guess we know who will be taking over HRG in a few years.
Do you ever do any online workout videos? Which ones are your favorites?
What are you thinking of getting your mom this year?
