I prefer superhero movies to chick flicks. I think live sporting events are super fun. I'd rather be outside getting dirty than wearing a dress and behaving. I have been known to drink beer out of a wine glass for appearances sake.
In short, I'm not very girly.
Don't get me wrong - I can clean up and act right with the best of them. I just prefer not to. I think this is why God gifted me with being a BoyMom.
For me, the traditional Mother's Day events just don't always sound fun. I don't like shopping that much, unless it's at the thrift shop. Mani / Pedi? I'm not crazy about spending money on something that's just going to wear off soon anyway. I can paint my own nails. Fancy brunch? This year I am really angling for wings and bacon cheese fries.
There have to be more mommas like me out there. I've got some plans and suggestions for Mother's Day Weekend that are sure to please those of us with "different" tastes!

Captain America: Civil War
opens May 5th
Is it an accident that this movie opens on Mother's Day weekend? I THINK NOT. There are tons of superhero moms out there and seeing this film is the perfect way to celebrate them! We've got our tickets for opening night on Thursday! Choose a side and grab your popcorn! (#TeamCap, by the way)

Atlanta Braves Girls Night Out
Spend Friday night at the Ted with your Mom Squad! The Atlanta Braves are playing the Arizona Diamondbacks and are celebrating us girls who "follow ball". You can purchase a special ticket package that includes a pre-game party with a 90's cover band, an outfield seat, a really awesome sweatshirt blanket with the Braves logo and... a feather boa! Grab the girls and head out to the ball game!
Family Canoe Day at the Chattahoochee Nature Center
The Chattahoochee Nature Center has a special place in my heart. We lived in Roswell when my older boys were small and were members there for years. It was one of my favorite places to ramble with my guys in a fun, low-tech setting. Saturday, May7th is Family Canoe Day! For ages 5- Adult, it's a great introduction to canoeing with the CNC providing the supplies. After you canoe, be sure to walk the trails and check out the resident animals!
Moms & Mimosas at the College Football Hall of Fame
Y'all. I'm pretty excited about this one! We are all in for the SEC in my house and we've been wanting to check out this attraction for quite a while. What better way to spend Mother's Day than sipping mimosas and spending time together as a family involved with something we all enjoy! I may not be able to tell you what down it is or if anyone is offsides, but I do like watching the games and cheering for our Dawgs. It's only right that Moms get free admission when an admission ticket is purchased. There will also be free manicures and chair massages!
Mother's Day Catch with the Atlanta Braves
If your heart lies with baseball more than football, head back over to the Ted for the Mother's Day Catch! The $175 ticket package includes two dugout seats, a parking pass and a 20 minute "catch" session in the outfield!
I'm looking forward to a crazy fun Mother's Day weekend!
