Mother's Day is just a week away. While some of us may stay home, and enjoy a quiet day at home with that special mom, others may go out for a meal, or a special outing. Would you rather-

Stay at home, and enjoy a special meal that is prepared by you, or your family?
Or
Go out to eat-breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner?

And do restaurants in your area tend to be busy on this day?

Stay at home and my husband usually makes a meal or we grill out, which is fine with me.

Usually restaurants are pretty crowded..

All our kids and grandkids come home for lunch and everybody brings cover dish. So its not a lot of stress.Usually we have enough left over for dinner too.

I'm only a dog mom, but we use to go out for breakfast with my MIL at a local Legion buffet. But that got to be a little too crazy with all the Grandkids. And there were many mothers day's we didn't even see my MIL, b/c they were out & about. Now that her mom is gone we normally either have her over to one of our houses & everyone shows up or we go to her house. But more recently we've stopped in at her house - just snacks. No main meal.

My Mom we just make an appearance at some point at her house. Normally whoever is there at supper time, we order pizza.

And yes, restaurants are BUSY!!!
