Mother's Day Ideas Treat Yo self

Mothers Day

Take a break on Mothers Day. Kids are expensive. I’ve heard it 10000x, but didn’t believe it until I found myself spending so much money on needless baby stuff. Aiden definitely needed 50 changes of newborn clothes, I told myself. $40+ cloth diapers, too. That $249 Mamaroo was such a necessity. Crazy.

We all know those products were really for ourselves. “But its for the baby, too!” Mmmhhmmm. I’m so sure they would’ve asked santa, if they could write. Get real.

Mothers Day is around the cover, and for starters, I need a break. I loveeee my cuddle bug to bits and pieces but I’m 10000% positive my hair is falling out. Not cute. Side note-I should tell Doug to get me those Sugar Bear Hair gummies.
I need me time to treat myself in a way that doesn’t necessarily involve the kids. I want to love myself.
In fact, who wouldn’t want to Love themselves Mothers Day?
Not sure where to start or what to do? I’m your girl.

Pin now and save for later!

Mom-me Time

These tips help your day go off without a hitch.

1. Pick the right day or time. You may already have plans for Mother’s Day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate it later on your own. Planning out when it’ll be will make life a million times easier.
2. Get alone time. Let your spouse have the kids. Or a trusted family member/friend.
If there isn’t anyone you know available, try care.com. They have background checks.
3. Live in the moment. This will be pointless if your mind is somewhere else.

1. Binge watch your guilty pleasures.
The Kardashians. Parks and Rec. How to Get Away with Murder. The Bachelor/ette.
Make it an event. Wear clothes that make you feel incredible. A robe with some fuzzy slippers, if you’d like. Add wine, juice or water. Nutella covered strawberries. Grab your coziest blanket and enjoy yourself.
Don’t have the treats at home, feel like leaving, or trust that they won’t get eaten? Get it delivered the same day from Instacart!

2. Relax and Recharge.
Try yoga at home by looking up a video on YouTube.
Follow up with a nice, cleansing milk bath with some Epsom salts. It will draw out impurities and soothe your aches.
Throw an inexpensive mask on and clean your face with a toner.
Exfoliate your skin and lather yourself in lotion.
Don’t forget the robe and slippers!

3. Enjoy Nature.
Check out a natural history museum. Walk a nearby trail. Bike a new path. Try a Segway tour if they have one in your area.

4. Get active.

Sign up for a free gym pass and take a class. Challenge yourself to Zumba. Or HIIT, if you’re feeling it.
Try the machines instead of the treadmill. Or the treadmill if you usually stick to machines.
Run or hike somewhere you’ve put off.

5. Read a book.

Don’t go to a bookstore, go to Goodwill. They have books for under $2 and you can get multiples on subjects you’re interested in.
Get your hermit(crab) on! Pick a spot. Cozy up. Add some snacks and you’re set for hours.

6. Do your Favorites.

Make a day of your favorite things.
Start with your favorite cup of coffee and bagel. Plan the day around it, enjoying your favorite spots.
Make a budget, so you don’t overspend.
