Celebrating Moms - Mother's Day Giveaway

First of all, forgive me if I ramble as I was up with a sick child and by sick I mean the worst kind, vomiting, half the night. I'm existing on less than 4 hours of sleep. But that's what I do.
Motherhood isn't always pretty, but I've said it once and I'll say it again. It is the most important job I will ever do. And frankly, it's my favorite. My children continue to amaze me daily with their growth and innocence. Their budding senses of humor, their sweetness and compassion. The love I have for them is immeasurable.

And much of that I owe to my own mother. She showed me how to be a good mom. Now that I'm an adult I feel fortunate to be able to call her my mother and one of my best friends. I make a habit of letting her know how important she is to me regularly.

I hope you all do the same for that special woman in your lives.

The Promotion:

With Mother's Day approaching, what better way to celebrate that special woman than by taking her out for a nice meal.

Buffets's Inc (All Ryan's, Fire Mountain Grill, Old Country Buffet, HomeTown Buffet, Granny's Buffet and Country buffet restaurant locations across the country) wants to help you do that with the two-day "We Celebrate Moms" Mother's Day tribute at all restaurants.

The Giveaway:

And Buffets Inc has graciously allowed me to offer two lucky readers "Be Our Guest" passes good for one complimentary breakfast, lunch or dinner at a Buffet's inc restaurant.

Simply leave a comment telling me how you'll celebrate that special woman in your life by 11:59 p.m. PST May 6th. Two winners will be chosen at random from all comments.

I will be giving my mom Queen Latifah perfume which she has not so subtly told me she wants. Seriously.

And also? I LOVE Old Country Buffet. It was a very sad day when my husband and I drove out to Shoreline and found our favorite OCB location closed. Closed! It was like someone stabbed us in our cholesterol clogged heart.

I donated money to The Literacy Site to buy textbooks for kids in Darfur, to celebrate my mom's love of books and reading that she passed on to me. I wont see my mom, since she lives on the other side of the US, but my family will be visiting soon, so that's good!

I had an early Mother's Day celebration with my mom when we met in Iowa to watch my daughter's gymnastics meet last weekend. It was a real treat since I hadn't seen her for a year!

My family will be going on our traditional Mother's Day bike ride to Red Hook Brewery. Hopefully the weather is nice!

Although we're not planning to bike to Old Country Buffet, the variety at this restaurant makes it a good choice for our family (when we can drive there!).

I'm thinking I will plant pansies with my mom (it's her favorite flower) and of course we will have a family dinner all together.

I think MotherDay is the biggest holiday after Christmas. This is the day when we say thanks for the women, who gave us our lives!
