Are You Allowed To Blog Brag? Mother's Day Monday


Are you allowed to brag on your blog?  I know this is a funny thought.  I can easily write about the funny or the crappy, but when it comes to the fabulous, I have a hard time finding the words. If I do stumble along and find the words, it just sounds too boastful.

I am a "the other shoe's going to drop sometime" kind of girl.  In the old days, when you could actually live the fantasy of getting bumped to business class for a flight from Toronto to Tokyo, I just enjoyed every second to the fullest.  I knew this could be it for me in my upgraded adventures.

When it's all too good I get scared.  I think it's akin to a fear of heights.  The more you have the more you have to lose, but I don't want to live like a fraidy cat loser.  I want to have some fun and keep having it until someone kicks me out at closing time.

Thus, in this vein, I want to let you know that my wonderful family kicked me out of the house Saturday and Sunday morning and sent me with another mom to Sonoma.  We sipped, we shopped, we spa'd, we dined, we read the newspaper, we slept in and we had a grand old girl's time.

On Sunday I returned, refreshed and thoroughly missing my family.  My kids ran to me, arms outstretched with big, airport kinds of hugs and kisses.  Awwww, gee I love these guys and I'm going to enjoy every single moment I have with them to the fullest!

Happy Mother's Day, hope you all enjoyed it to the fullest, too!

I did spend the day with the family.. unpacking from the weekend, piles of dirty clothes from the weekend... ect... but at least I was with them, right? Maybe one day I will get my mom weekend!!!

Awww, that's so sweet! I had the opposite - daughter went to Grandpa's, bf had to work, so I had most of the day to myself to relax, unwind, and drink wine!

Amazing! And, generally I think blog bragging is okay, except for this time b/c I am totally jealous of your Mom's Day adventure. And, it is not okay to make me jealous. I'm totally sticking my tongue out at you right now;)

It was a heel clicking weekend, but Monday is a whole load-full of reality.

@Terri: I never knew these things existed until I moved to California. It took a long time to get my first mom's weekend...you'll get one soon, I'll bet! Glad you had such a nice time visiting your mom :)

@Margarita: Sounds like a peaceful, relaxing day! I love it when I just have the luxury of being able to think.

@Opus #6: Thanks! Hope you had a great day, too!

@parentingBYdummies: I know it's all in fun. Your camera bag sounds like an excellent gift--and you sound like you are surrounded by love. That's the best part of every day, not just Mother's Day!

Brag on, my friend! I love to live vicariously through others! ;-)

I'm glad to hear your Mother's Day was fantastic!

That sounds so AWESOME! I have a similar weekend over my birthday. I go visit Sister K in San Diego. What's not to like in San Diego?

Hey, I think when it's YOUR blog and the people reading it are your blog FRIENDS, you can TOTALLY share your happy times and blessings just as much as your sad/mad/bad stuff. I am glad you had a wonderful day! xx
