Early Mother’s Day

Sunday of course started with church with my boys. I got to teach a lesson at church today, I love being able to work with the youth, they are so smart and have so much insight. I’m pretty lucky.

The rest of the day was spent with my family. My mom actually has to leaves us on Tuesday even though we tried to convince her to stay.  We decided to throw her a Mother’s Day party since she’s here and then we don’t have to mail our presents to her.


We didn’t forget it was Cinco De Mayo and we celebrated with mango salsa cilantro salmon, southwest salad, chips, rolls, potato salad, rice and of course we had some chocolate for dessert.

I’ve been blessed with a wonderful mother. One that waited up for me every. single. night. when I was growing up. She let me make mistakes, but was there with her shoulder for me to cry on when I realized I was wrong. I hope to someday be half as amazing as she is. Happy early Mother’s Day mom!!

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

  1. I love your wedding pic with your mom, not only do you both look beautiful and so much alike, but so happy too! Mother’s Day will bring a dinner and some presents for my mom, and a 5k for breast cancer in the morning.

  2. Oh gosh the last picture of you and your mom is adorable. I am sad I won’t be able to celebrate in person with her but I hope I can when I get home

  3. Oh. My. Gosh. That picture of you and your mom at your wedding is GORGEOUS! I love it. My mom lives in Chicago and I live in FL…so we won’t be spending it together. I’m actually off to the post office to mail her mother’s day gift! I didn’t get her anything too crazy, but I’m hoping she likes it anyways!!

    Aw I forgot about the whole mothers day thing until my friend mentioned it yesterday. We’re going to have to postpone it a week in my family so I can be home to celebrate too. I’m sure they’ll still eat cake without me on Sunday- how rude of them!
