Not MY mother’s cooking!

My mother used to make biscuits so hard they would dent walls, and once tried to make a meatloaf in the crockpot. Three guesses how that turned out. So if you mom is like mine – of if she just likes to cook – then get her cooking classes for Mother's Day! The Viking Store has cooking classes all the time. From Italian to pies – they'll teach you right. If you wanted to take mom for a one-day class, they have spaces open this weekend to create the fare for a mother and daughter tea party, give her a gift ...

A berry good time with Mom

Picking your own strawberries is one of those things that is so much fun it should be illegal. If you were required to pick them, I'm sure it would be much less entertaining, but since you aren't you can feel free to plan and pick and giggle and get muddy – to truly have an amazing time. It's fun for all ages, so it's a great way to celebrate Mother's Day this weekend. Why order her chocolate-covered strawberries and pay a ridiculous amount of money when you take her out into a muddy field to pick ...

To the moon and back

If you mom is a little more adventurous, then the New Moon Kayak Tour might be the place to go this weekend. My mother would tip us both over into the lake, but your mom might be more coordinated. If so, this sounds like an amazing idea. Take a ranger-led tour of Lake Rutledge and relax while watching the stars. The ranger told me that the new moon lets you see the stars better, so that should sweeten the deal, and it's not jungle hot outside yet, so it should be nice to listen to crickets and not the ...

Give mom wine, not whines

Take a drive to the mountains to celebrate mom this weekend at Wolf Mountain Vineyards and Winery, because nothing says I love you like being your mother's designated driver! But this isn't just any old winery. They consistently win awards and were even featured in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine – that's nothing to scoff at. Plus they offer "Napa-style" wine tours and tastings. I have no clue what that entails since the closest I've been to Napa Valley is the wine section at the DeKalb Farmer's Market, but it sounds awfully fancy, and it beats your ...

Queen for Mother's Day

Does your mom get tired of flowers? Is she bored to death with the thought of brunch rather than sleeping in on Mother's Day? Then read on, because there's no reason you can't ditch the cliché this Mother's Day and do something that will make your mom remember just why you're her favorite child – or why you should be from now on.

A colorful Mother’s Day

No matter what mom is into, you can share a special mother's day by painting pottery together. From coffee cups to serving platters, hang out together and paint something that will last forever – or at least until you have slippery hands while unloading the dishwasher. I love this idea, because it's perfect for all ages. You can take wee ones and let them put their handprints on a coffee cup for mom to use at work, or adult children can (attempt) to actually paint a pretty design on something lovely. Let mom paint her own stuff too – it ...
