Reflections on Mother's Day and The Great Blog Link Up

Julian & Co. Jewelry posted a contest on their Facebook page today that got me thinking about Mother's Day. If you are a mommy and haven't seen their jewelry yet, you need to visit their webpage.

Who is your favorite mother from a TV or movies?

I have 2 that are personal favorites:

Lauren Graham as Lorelai Gilmore on the Gilmore Girls

Why did I like her as a mom? She had the best one liners of any mom out there. I have stolen a few and now use them with my boys :) .She was also the coolest mom on the block. She dressed awesome and had great friends in the neighborhood to help out whenever she needed anything.

Donna Reed

Those that know me outside of this blog will laugh at this one. I use to watch the Donna Reed Show on Nick at Night when I was younger. I am far from her today. I am not a domestic diva even though I try to be. I loved how glamorous she made being a mom look. She was the mother who had dinner on the table at precisely 5 p.m. at night while wearing her pearls and having perfect makeup. I also loved how she was always the peace maker with her friends and at times her family. She was the glue that held everyone together. Whoever your favorite TV or movie mother is, be sure to wish your mom or special mother figure Happy Mother's Day this Sunday!

I am going to host a blog link up that will go live this Sunday. If you are interested please email me your blog badge (link) and I will post it live Sunday night. The participation requirements are as follows:
1.) Blog must be either eco-friendly, wellness/running or parenting
2.) You must be a follower of my blog

Please spread the word. I hope this is a great opportunity for people to learn about all the awesome blogs out there.
