Mother’s Day is one of those days I always look forward to, I love the idea of dedicating an entire day to the one who has truly shaped who I am today. Typically my sister Heather, who lives in Edmonton, flies home for the weekend and we host a big ladies brunch! We prefer to do this rather than going out, it’s just much more casual and relaxed… waiting in line for an overpriced buffet really isn’t our style.
Once we have filled up on mimosas, coffee, and my famous (well I’ve claimed it to be famous) breakfast casserole, we usually hit up the greenhouses. Our day is typically pretty casual focussing on the important things: big laughs, good food, and being together!
I’m not sure how you’re celebrating your mom or motherly figure this year but if you’re hosting a brunch I highly suggest this casserole! My lovely friend, Erin suggested I make it last year when I told her I was hosting a big crew of women for brunch. It is EASY, quick, super delicious, and has now become a tradition, thanks Erin!

Now that you’ve made your mom an amazing brunch, it’s time to spoil her with gifts… Lucky for you, I have teamed up with Hillberg & Berk to give away two pairs of their sparkle ball earrings. A pair for you and your mom!! These sparkle balls have become and iconic part of the Hillberg & Berk brand for a reason, they add just the perfect amount of sparkle to any outfit! They come in different sizes and tonnes of amazing colors, your mom is sure to love them! I will be giving away one pair of the Hemetite color and one of the Aurora Borealis!
How will you be celebrating your mom this year?
