Jelly Beans and World Peace- Coffee Chat

May is my month!

Why?  Let’s first talk about Mother’s day!  Pull up a chair, grab that big mug and let’s dish a bit!  Jelly beans and world peace.  That is my standard answer when my kids ask me what I want for Mother’s day.  It is kind of a joke now, I have been saying it for so long!

Do you love Mother’s day?

I do!  I became a mom at 21 and I can definitely say my world has never been the same.  There are highs and there are lows but it is one job I would not trade for the world.  The past 2 Mother’s days the kids have taken me to lunch.  As in they paid for lunch and we were not at Wendy’s!  You know you have the highs we just talked about, this is one of them!  If you aren’t there yet, don’t give up hope, a free lunch will eventually come your way!

Are you hoping for a little something on Mother’s day?

My Mom is no longer with us so but I still have my Stepmother and MIL when it comes to gift buying.  If jelly beans and world peace are not on your shopping list, I have a  suggestion if you are looking for that hard to please she has everything already Mom/MIL.

Greetabl.  They believe, in redefining the art of gifting for all to enjoy, so you can send-the-love without breaking the bank.  I have sent a couple of these so far and they have been very well received.  You pick a box design, personalize it with your messages and photos and then pick a little something to go in the box!  It is that easy and they have choices for all budgets.  Super Fun! Click the Greetabl link and get 15% off your purchase just in time for Mother’s day!

May is my Month!

Did I already say that?  Well, I do have a birthday this month, after Mother’s day and I have a little Memorial day weekend beach action planned!  I have my party shoes on and a drink coffee in my hand, let’s get this party started!

As always I enjoy our time together!  What is on your calendar for May?  Jelly beans and world peace?  

Thank you Deborah and Coco for the link up!  Make sure you stop by!

    Awww, this is a special Mother’s Day, you have your sweet little bundle of joy to celebrate with 🙂

  6. I love mothers day even before I was a Mom! My husband has work the last three years (this year as well), so I try to do something special with my girls. It usually involves ice cream and being outdoors. This year I’m taking them to Camp Brigadoon (camp for chronically ill children) for brunch and outdoor activities!

    My mom always wanted “a clean house and good kids”. Not sure what was so “bad” about us kids, but whatever. This year I’ll see my mom on Saturday along with a nephew’s birthday party and hurricane MIL on Mother’s Day. Joy to the world.

      You always make me smile 😉 What do you want to bet I spend Mother’s day evening with my MIL? My hubby always slides it in last thing……

  8. Happy early Birthday!! I will have two of my three kids home, so that’s good. My May is gonna be full of long-distance running, but then I’ll get to taper once June hits 😉

      Sounds like a very nice month. My hubby and I count kids too- when we can get 3 out of 4 together or better it is a big deal!

  9. Sounds like an exciting moth for you! I’ll be celebrating mothers day with my mom next weekend and then the following weekend we are off to Cleveland for my husband’s marathon!

    Jelly beans and world peace …that is just too cute and sounds like something a “Skippy” would say! 🙂 How many bags of jelly beans did you get over the years before the free meal came?

    I will have to check out this Greetabl …I have one of those “she has everything” women in my life. 🙂

    Happy early birthday lady and have a great weekend!

  14. Well this is a great idea!! I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out what to give my MIL that I haven’t already given her a hundred times. So things like this are perfect.

    I love your wish list! My son will be making dinner on Mother’s Day but I’m pretty sure I’ll be paying for the groceries. 🙂

  16. I have a huge month ahead of me, too! I have several new clients starting this week (tis the time of year), I have an all-day Saturday/Sunday course coming up in two weeks, and our huge Memorial Day barbecue is the weekend after that. We invite 100 families so that’s always a lot of fun work. Of course with holiday travel, less that half can attend.

    Happy early birthday!

    Happy early birthday! I needed this post as a reminder and a boost to get something for my mom and MIL.

  18. World Peace is always a good thing to have on the wish list! 🙂
    I don’t know what I will do for my mom yet. We are close, so I always find something she really loves though. I have taken her out to lunch before and I know she likes that. She tells me any time she can spend with me is nice. Moms are the best.
    Have a Happy Mom’s Day!

    I’m not a mom (unless dog mom counts 🙂 ) I am excited for mother’s day this year as I’ll be back home and can celebrate with my mom in person and maybe take her to lunch (although I will be more than likely making her dinner instead).
