My husband knows that if I’m having a bad day all he needs to do is bring home a bottle of wine, a redbox movie, and some CHOCOLATE! That frown will turn upside down in minutes!

This past weekend we were all in the car on the way to meet friends for lunch. Mike asked Cason, “hey buddy, what should we do for mommy on mother’s day?” To which Cason replied, “I don’t know, mommy what do you want??”

I said “I would love for daddy and Cason to make me a special dinner all by themselves.”

Of course Cason takes it as a challenge and says, “ok mommy. Daddy we watch Bobby Flay.”

haha.. he is truly my son! Apparently he also goes to Bobby Flay for inspiration. 🙂

I can’t wait to see what they come up with! Whatever it is I know it’s going to be special because my boys made it for me. 🙂

Although secretly I hope they remember to make dessert, because dessert is the way to my heart.

SOoo… this is me dropping a little hint to my boys (and crossing my fingers that my husband reads this post so he knows to make cookies)

  1. Oh, how fun that your husband & son are going to make you dinner this weekend for Mother’s Day! 🙂 And at least they are in good hands with Bobby Flay, right?

    And these cookies look amazing! I am always a sucker for the chocolate/coconut combo.
