  1. This is one of my favorite ways to cook potatoes. I loved being a Mom when my girls were little. I loved to dress them up in frilly matching outfits. I love even more that now they are older, we shop together like friends, and they dress me up in the latest fashions.

  2. When I was younger, I never thought I'd be content to be a stay at home mom, but now that I am, I wouldn't have it any other way! I'm so fortunate to be able to see them when they wake up, hear about their day when home from school, and tuck them into bed at night!

  3. I love a give away. Thanks …My mom is the best. She really is an amazing friend and role model. She always celebrated every holiday and made birthdays extra special. She is a marvelous cook. I feel blessed to be her daughter

  4. My mom is so amazing-she is positive, fun, curious about life, flexible (can do the splits at 80 years old), unselfish and beautiful. I am so grateful for her. So glad I can be a mom, and want to be more for my kids like my mom is for me.

  5. I love watching my little one light up when he learns something new or gets excited about something. Nothing really compares to the pure joy of a child!

  6. This is one of my favorite ways to cook potatoes!!W
    Great giveaway! What I love more than my mom is the sweetness..

  7. My mom is just … she just amazes me. Day in, day out, she is the most caring, nurturing person I've ever met. Even though I'm 47 years old, she still takes the time to remind me that I am still and always will be her little girl. I love you, Mama!

  8. My Mom was great, she would have been an awesome grandma and very helpful to have around at this point. I love being a mom to my boys, perfect for me.

  9. I love being a mom because they teach me so much– take the time and enjoy every little thing in life– the simple things!

  10. What I love most about being a Mom is when the kids cuddle up next to you and are content. Having a 2 and 4 year old limits these moments, but makes them all the more special. That and when my 2 yr old says "You Best Mom Ever!" and my 4 year old tells me he loves me more than 500 plus 500 plus 100 cheesecakes. Now that's LOVE.

  11. I love being a Mom, especially when I see my children succeed at something. I love all of those tender cuddle moments when they just want you to hold them. My boys are the cutest! 🙂

  12. Sy, I am still waiting for the super – EASY recipes! (I am wanting to be like you and obtain some of your cooking skills!) It was so good to see you at Nordstrom the other day too!
    I am new at the mom thing, but I love being able to hold and cuddle Bode…he is such a big baby boy, but he wants to be held and cuddled! I love seeing how much he changes and how his little personality emerges as he grows and learns!

  13. What I love the most about my Mother is that she has always been my biggest fan. No one else cheers for you louder or comforts better when there is sorrow. I hope to carry that on as I cheer my children on in life.

  14. I just love, love love it when they call your name in the middle of the night because they are scared. I want to scream, "That is my son!" when he hits a home run. I want to cry when he shows up on the honor roll, but then I want to cry when he won't pick up his clothes off the bathroom floor or get out of bed when it is time to go to school. It's a wonderful journey!

  15. Growing up I always wanted to 'be a mom.' What I love the most about being a mom now are the times I find myself doing the things I dreamed of as a child…
    Like the other day my baby was standing at my feet crying to be picked up, and I remembered so clearly in that instant watching a tv show as a child with that same scene and wanting so badly to quickly grow up and have a baby to cry at my feet! Oh it isn't always easy and good, but oh it is always rewarding.

  16. That she forgot how big of a brat I was as a teenager!! :O What I love the most is that she lives 5 hours away yet shows up for piano recitals, kindergarten "grandparents day", and has made it to the birth of every grandbaby. I'd be lost without her…

  17. I don't think I have ever heard my mother say one negative thing about anyone…seriously, she is an angel. I love being a mother for many reasons. The best is I have the opportunity to forget about myself and concentrate my time, energy and resources on 5 of the most remarkable and amazing children ever!

  18. What I love about my mom is that she is the kindest, most giving person I know. She spends most of her time doing things for others, and she never, ever complains. She is the greatest. I tell everyone I want to be just like her when I grow up (and I'm 51)!

  19. My Mom is simply amazing! She had 10 children and was an incredible stay at home Mom. She can do anything and never passes up a chance to say how much she loves each of us. She's been diagnosed with MS and has never once complained, even when this horrible disease has taken things from her one at a time. She is my absolute hero! I love you, Mom!!

  20. I LOVE giveaways, and I love your blog!! I want to grow up to be just like my mother. She loves my father, and her children and does anything and everything for us. She is classy,passionate, kind, spiritual, creative, gorgeous and witty. She has the biggest heart of anyone I've ever met… I love her so much!! Thanks!

  21. Mother's Day is bittersweet. I lost my Mom in May of 2002, just a five days after Mother's Day. It was the saddest day of my life. I was left with great memories of a woman who raised 3 children, on her own. She will always be remembered, for her carefree spirit, laughter and zany personality. The day she told me she had just 2 weeks to live, I broke down in tears and couldn't stop crying. My mom allowed me to cry for 2 minutes. She then looked at me and said, "Debbie, if you keep this up, I'm "going" right NOW!" I was startled back to my senses, and then we tumbled "into each" laughing hysterically. My Mom never let anything get her down! She treated people with respect. She couldn't tell the difference between a bag lady and the Queen of England. She loved everyone…equally. She made many sacrifices for her family and never once complained. I miss her.

  22. It was very obvious that family was the most important thing to my mom & that value has been passed on. I couldn't imagine my life without my four daughters. What a blessing to be surrounded by the love of my mother & to pass that love along to my girls.
