Chocolate strawberry shortcake recipe

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I decided I needed to find a sweet and simple recipe to make with my 3-year-old as a surprise for my mom! Evan loved the idea of preparing a special treat for his beloved Mamaw, and this chocolate strawberry shortcake recipe is both incredibly easy, and scrumptious!

When I say that this chocolate strawberry shortcake recipe is easy, I mean crazy-easy.

You probably have the ingredients for the cake itself in your pantry right now, and it bakes in a mug in your microwave in just 2-3 minutes!

Plus? This recipe chock-full of strawberries. Red, juicy, delicious, fresh strawberries. What could be better than that?

Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

I was a bit skeptical about a chocolate cake cooked in the microwave, but let me tell you, it was a snap to prepare, yet it tasted rich, warm, and oh-so-ooey-gooey. It was the perfect simple cake to go with fresh strawberries and a dollop of Cool Whip!

Evan loved helping me assemble the layers of the chocolate strawberry shortcake — he especially loved adding a few fresh strawberries to the top!

    My best Mother’s Day memory is that on May 13, 2001 on Mother’s Day is when my hubbie and I started seeing each other. We started talking after a dinner on the grounds at church and have been together ever since. I’m a mother now to two wonderful girls but the day I began my life with their daddy is still my favorite Mother’s Day.

  7. May 7, 2013 @ 8:36 am

    my favorite mother day moment was when my mom received a new wedding ring from my dad after 15 years that she had lost her original one

  8. May 7, 2013 @ 8:37 am

    My favorite mother’s day memory was last year. My husband sent me on some ridiculous trip to the grocery store. I came home and my kiddos had made me a huge chocolate chip cookie in the shape of a heart and covered in strawberries. Then we all snuggled up and watched Beauty and The Beast.

  9. May 7, 2013 @ 8:37 am

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment is getting taken out to brunch nearly every year to a Mexican restaurant. I’m not sure how this became a tradition, it just did! We’ll break that tradition this year, but only because my oldest son is making his first communion Mother’s Day weekend and the whole family will be in from out of town.

    My best mothers day memory was 9 years ago – our only child was born! What an amazing gift! Every year since then we have spent Mothers Day at Thomas the Train since that is the weekend he is in town. Thomas the Train is what made my son the happiest, which makes my heart sing.

    Also, when my son was just a few hours old, he lifted his head as I held him, and I swear he kissed me! How much better can life get?

    I must say that my favorite Mother’s Day moment was last year. It was the last with my Gram as she passed away in August but we had all of the women of the family together to celebrate her that day since we knew she wouldn’t have much time left.

    The best Mother’s Day gift I ever gave my now deceased Mother was the day I graduated from college in May of 1975!!

  15. May 7, 2013 @ 8:41 am

    Every Mother’s Day is very special to me, so I couldn’t name just one. My mom is gone now, so all of the ones I had with her are held so close to my heart, but also the ones I share with my children and my husband now.

  16. May 7, 2013 @ 8:43 am

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment is simple………simply being a Mom! I had been told that I would never be able to have children due to a medical complication but I was so persistent that my husband and I have three children ages 5, 6 and just turned 8. Mother’s Day for me is a day to reflect on my blessings and enjoy time with my family!

    My favorite part of Mother’s Day is simply being a mom!! We dont use make too much of a fuss over Mother’s Day, but one year I was awakened not by the alarm but to giggles and 4 little boys with their homemade cards, and lots of sweet kisses. They had spent the night before while I was at work fixing them up for me. I still have the cards. I have every card but those mean so much more than just a signature on a store bought card.

    Love getting a manicure on mother’s day with my daughter (now 10) and my mom. We call it our girl’s day :)

  20. May 7, 2013 @ 8:45 am

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment was when my sister and I dressed up in “I love mom” t-shirts and surprised our mom at the airport when picking her up for a long mother’s day weekend in LA. She was so excited to see us and the weekend was a blast.

    I would have to say it was the last Mother’s Day my Mom was alive…we had a good time and showered her with gifts and laughter! A memory I cherish!!

  22. May 7, 2013 @ 8:46 am

    Two years ago we bought or first house right around Mother’s Day and that was the best gift I could have asked for!

    My mothers day moment was having breakfast with my newborn twins in bed, and then going to dinner with my mom on her last mothers day before she went home to be with the Lord. Miss her so much.

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment was last year when I woke up to breakfast in bed and enjoyed homemade gifts from my children!

  29. May 7, 2013 @ 8:51 am

    The first one that comes to mind is the high tea my mom, my sister, and I had together. It was the last Mother’s Day before Mom’s ALS diagnosis. We had a lovely time.
    She went home to glory less than two years later, so I only had one more Mother’s Day with her.

  30. May 7, 2013 @ 8:51 am

    My favorite Mother’s day memory was probably last year. My kids and my husband just made me a princess for the day. I didn’t lift a finger… no cleaning, cooking and got a manicure and pedicure from my kids. It was awesome. :)

    My 1st Mother’s Day will always hold a special place in my heart. Looking down at my 2 month old son, I realized that nothing could be better and that momentis forever etched in my heart.

    I am lucky enough to have my favorite mother’s day moment happen every year. My husband and kids always make me breakfast in bed. My favorite moment is when they come up the stairs to wake me, their eyes bright and proud of what they have helped make. I get a wonderful hug, kiss, and loving Mother’s Day greeting from each of the four kids, and my husband too. I couldn’t ask for a better way to start the day than that.

    My mom was an amazing lady. She had poise, generosity, and class. She always behaved as a lady but also knew how to have some fun. I remember quite a few years back when she came to Disneyland with us, I was amazed that even though she was in her 60s she rode every ride that us young pups did. Another thing about her is that she loved to make food treats that would wow people. She loved doing chocolate covered strawberries and even made little mice out if cherries and Hershey’s kisses. I miss her dearly.

    Mine would have to be my very first Mothers Day after my son was born. We spent it on a picnic at the park and my husband surprised me with jewelry and my sons handprint. So surreal to be a mom myself!

  38. May 7, 2013 @ 9:09 am

    My favorite moment was staring into my infant’s eyes for my first Mother’s Day. It was then I realized the importance of the role “mom”. This year I will celebrate my 5th Mother’s Day and every day I grow to respect my mother more and more. This is not an easy job, but it is the most rewarding (and challenging). ;)

    The last Mother’s Day I got to spend with my mom before she passed away I slept over her house the night before and woke up early to make her a beautiful breakfast. We took my daughter to a pnd near by and fed the ducks like she used to do with me as a child. The reason why I share this moment is because each year since shes been gone on Mother’s Day I can imagine this moment we shared for and will cherish it for the rest of my life.

  47. May 7, 2013 @ 10:04 am

    I really enjoy mothers day just to be able to spend time with my own mother as well as my children, husband and my father included.

  48. May 7, 2013 @ 10:18 am

    Any Mother’s Day when I’m in the same state as my Mom.

    My sweet mom is passed on from bone cancer, taken at a young age. But my most loved and cherished Mother’s Day memory of her, is when myself, my daughter and my mom took a trip right before she died, to the beach like she hoped for. She was very weak and limited to what she could physically do, but we enjoyed every blessed second of that trip. We live in TN with all mountains and enjoying the ocean was my mom’s most favorite place to see and feel close to God and all he created. Her exact words spoken time and time again, as I grew up. I miss her so much. Happy Mother’s Day & I hope you still have your mom to hug and make memories with. Life is to short to miss those opportunities. :)

  57. May 7, 2013 @ 10:55 am

    Not really favorite, as in good, but most memorable…my husband was making a lemon meringue pie for his mother one Mother’s Day when my sons were little. When I asked him what he was doing for me from the boys, I was told, “You’re not my mother.” Fail.

  59. May 7, 2013 @ 10:55 am

    My best memory is just spending time with my boys. What could be better!

  63. May 7, 2013 @ 11:37 am

    I can’t remember a happy Mother’s Day since my mom died 3 years ago, I resent Mother’s Day.

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment was when my daughter presented me with a jar with a hundred small pieces of paper inside. On the jar was written 100 reasons why I love my mom. Each piece of paper had something written on it. It was the best Mother’s Day gift ever.

    ALL Mother’s Days are my favorite, but I guess one of the most memorable one was the first hand-made card I got from my daughter. It brought me to tears.

    My favorite mother’s day event was one that included my mother, my 2 sisters, my neice, my daughter, 3 of my friends, their mothers, and their daughters or nieces. We did manicures and pedicures for each other, followed by a tea party that featured lemon pound cake topped with strawberries and whipped cream. It was long, beautiful, relaxing and memorable!

  92. May 7, 2013 @ 1:20 pm

    This year will be one of the best mother’s day for me because my mom will be with me and my daughter. Three generations of women spending a special day together :)

    When I was sixteen, just a week after my parents divorce. I spent a few months of allowance to treat my Mom. I took care of everything around the house the cleaning, laundry and meals. Pampered her all weekend and was just there for her, when she needed me after that she has done for me.

  104. May 7, 2013 @ 2:49 pm

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment was when my daughter surprised me with breakfast in bed, she was so excited to make it. She made me oatmeal, toast, juice, and something else. But what I remember the most was the oatmeal, it was like glue…she was just learning how to make things. I definitely still ate it , didn’t want to disappoint her but it something I’ll never forget since she was so proud of herself.

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment was bringing my third son home from the hospital on Mother’s Day 2010! Such a wonderful day to bring a baby home!

    one of my favorite Mother’s Day moments was when both of my children made me breakfast in bed a few years ago… they tried so hard, and it was delicious… and even cleaned up after themselves lol.

  120. May 7, 2013 @ 5:07 pm

    My fave is when my daughter awoke me last mothers day with a card and breakfast she helped make with my husband

    I’m definitely going to try this one out for sure. Thank you! :)

    My favorite Mother’s Day memory? We have a rose garden in the backyard, and every year my dad will never fail to present a bouquet of fresh roses to my mom on Mother’s Day. :) I love finding the vase of flowers in the morning, because it’s such a small gesture, but it means he’s thinking of her!

  122. May 7, 2013 @ 6:09 pm

    One of my favorite Mother’s Day moments was when I was working abroad for a while and haven’t seen my family, I surprised them esp my mom on Mother’s Day. She was really happy to see me.

  129. May 7, 2013 @ 8:49 pm

    surprising our mother by having all 9 of us children show up at her church mother’s day morning, it takes a lot to get all of us, from all different states, into the same location.

  130. May 7, 2013 @ 9:18 pm

    Going to the local nursery’s to pick out the summer annuals with my family :) Can’t wait for many more wonderful mother’s days!

  131. May 7, 2013 @ 10:12 pm

    I was pregnant with my first and as I walked back to my apartment, a neighbor whom I had never met wished me a happy Mother’s Day. It made my day that he recognized my motherhood!

    Last year I hosted Mothers day for my family and my husbands family including all of the siblings on both sides. I had a very pretty buffet. I made favor bags for all of the women with cute things from Pier one. Two of the women who are not married were so grateful for getting a little something it really made me feel good.

    The first year I had stepkids (no “kids of my own”) and got a Mother’s Day Present! Don’t even remember what the gift was, but my heart will never forget the day I finally got to celebrate.

  140. May 8, 2013 @ 4:21 pm

    My favorite moment was when my husband gifted me with a ring with the birthstones of my kids. He totally shopped for it himself which is not normal for him!

    I’ve enjoyed 30 years of being a mother, but my best memories are of celebrating with my beloved Mother. We usually just go to Church on Sunday morning then enjoy delicious food together.

    Every year my mother and I go to the local nursery/greenhouse and buy ourselves a few flats of flowers to plant in outdoor flower pots while we wait for the ones we planted from seed to bloom in our gardens!

    When mom and I took a rowboat out into the middle of the lake and sat there trying to catch fish to grill for a Mother’s Day dinner. We didn’t catch anything but had a lovely day together

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment so far took place two days ago (not on Mother’s Day, I know!). My 4 1/2 year old seems to just be getting the hang of what Mother’s Day is all about, which is why this year is already my favorite! A few days ago he was saying that he has an idea of what to get me, but he doesn’t know where to buy it. I could tell it was really hard for him to keep from spilling the beans. He’s never been very good at keeping something secret, so it was so fun for me to watch him try so hard to keep his secret! SO CUTE! He said he’d talk to Daddy about it! I just love that he’s been thinking about me in advance and planning something!

    My favorite Mothers Day moment was last year. My little boy wasn’t even 1 yet and my daughter was 5 and we spent the day with my mom. It’s so nice to just have an adult relationship with my mom and of course, she loves her grandkids so much!! :)

  165. May 13, 2013 @ 2:37 pm

    Wow, this looks amazing! And thanks for the awesome giveaway – best Mother’s Day moment is the look on mom’s face when you give her flowers, that is, after she gets mad about how much money you spent.

  166. May 14, 2013 @ 12:00 am

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment was yesterday when my 11 year old woke my up with flowers he picked out himself <3

    My favorite Mother’s Day memory was this year, when my 7 year old decided to cut an apple up, slather it with peanut butter and give it to me for breakfast alongside the first pot of coffee she’d ever made for me. It was her joy at doing these things on her own that won my heart.

    This was my favorite Mothers Day by far! Our 9 year old son made me wind chimes, our 3 year old made me her first hand made project, a painted birdhouse made out of a dried gourd (with help from my father in law), and this year we had a new addition, our 10 week old little girl!! My husband works out of state, so it’s very special when we all get to spend time together as a family.. I loved it!

    Jacque Stineback

    I would have to say this years Mother’s Day reminded me of how important my role is. I have two boys, Ryan is 3 and Zachary is 6 months. And my Mother’s Day was spent doing what mothers do, I was taking care of two sick kids. My oldest has an ear infection and my youngest has a cold. Mother’s Day is to remind all of us moms how much we are appreciated, and I got that appreciation when my son would look at me and say “Mommy, can you just cuddle with me?” It is moments like these that remind me that everyday is Mother’s Day.

  200. May 14, 2013 @ 8:15 am

    We have a tradition of planting our spring flowers every Mother’s Day (although this year it was a bit frosty, so we’re waiting for next weekend!). Thanks for the chance to win! We could definitely buy a lot of flowers with $100! :-)

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment, was my last one with my Momma. She needed 24 hour care, I was living with her until I fell and broke my ankle in 2 places. Anyway she was at my older sisters house, and we had a Mother’s Day Dinner for her. All four of her daughters, four grand daughers, & 3 grand daughters-in-law.
    My Momma was so happy that day she was laughing and opening her gifts. She had been very sick for so long and we knew this might be her last Mother’s Day with us, so we made it as special as we could. We all had our picture taken with her, wonderful memories! <3

    My fav was this year. I was sleeping and I heard what I thought was cattle like noises coming from my door! My 2 and 10 yr bumrushed my room and yelled “HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!” Lol cutest part was how involved my 2yo was!! He held up his colored heart for me!


    Side note: this recipe looks so delicious!! On our we mash the strawberries and add a little sugar but have never used different cakes! Will be trying!

    My favorite memories are of my little ones bringing me breakfast in bed, just like I did my mother….and now know why she didn’t really like it but never said anything. Feels like you’re in the hospital.

  232. May 14, 2013 @ 8:41 am

    Mother’s Day was wonderful simply because I spent the whole day with my two girls, reminding myself how blessed I truly am

  233. May 14, 2013 @ 8:42 am

    Strawberry shortcake is my favorite. My mother used to take me tto the local bakery and we would pick one out. I remember the price was $2.25 and the nice woman behind the counter wold always give me a cookie.

  234. May 14, 2013 @ 8:43 am

    I mother was a wonderful cook, not a baker.. thats where I come in. I started to bake for my 8 brothers and sisters at 15, and my mother loves my baking even today at 83

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment was actually this year. I went to bed that evening after having a pretty decent Mother’s Day anyway and found on my bed a note from my daughter that her Sunday School teacher had them write at church that day. The words were all her own though and so thoughtful that I teared up and went and had to give her a big hug and tell her how wonderful it was.

    My favorite mother’s day moment was this year I suppose even though all of my kid were out of town. They all called and I was able to speak to each of them. My daughterinlaw had us over for a cookout. I was presented with a stepping stone my daughterinlaw had made with my grandson’s (16 mos) footprint in it and colorful stones all around. Very nice day.

  240. May 14, 2013 @ 8:52 am

    My son came to me wishing me a “Happy birthday”

  241. May 14, 2013 @ 8:53 am

    My favorite mother’s day moment is everytime when I spend time with her. My mom is my best friend. She always inspires me to be a successful human being.

  242. May 14, 2013 @ 8:54 am

    My little guy saying “nighnigh. wuv you.” as I put him to bed! First time ever!

  258. May 14, 2013 @ 9:27 am

    This year marked my sixth Mother’s Day – that was for ME as a Mama. It took so long to hear that word (I was 44 when our sweet girl was placed in my arms). The best part of Mother’s Day this year was snuggling in bed with our girl, telling her, again, her story. It’s a story that never gets old for any of us and we tell it often. But on Mother’s Day, it has special meaning. I had come to think I’d celebrate it for me.

  259. May 14, 2013 @ 9:29 am

    just being with my mom is what matters

  260. May 14, 2013 @ 9:29 am

    My kids came over and brought the Grandkids also and the guys smoked me a beef brisket and ribs and my daughter made the sides. So nice to be pampered and waited on and I felt so special…like a Queen I tell you! Then they presented me with a ipad that I went crazy over! Perfect day!

  261. May 14, 2013 @ 9:36 am

    I know what’s for breakfast! Er I mean dessert

  262. May 14, 2013 @ 9:37 am

    I was induced with my first child the day after Mother’s day. I spent that first Mother’s day rubbing my belly and thinking about all the wonderful days to come. :)

  263. May 14, 2013 @ 9:38 am

    My favorite mothers day moment was my mom saying she thinks i’m a great mom!

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment? Too many wonderful moments to pick just one. I was blessed from the moment I woke up, until I went to bed. I have such a loving husband and a wonderful family.

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment when I was 10 years old and I went with my Mom and Dad and 7 siblings to the River and had a picnic. We ate outside and it was so much fun. I made my mom a necklace from a kit, and my Dad helped me make a cake and get my Mom some flowers! It was so much fun!

  291. May 14, 2013 @ 2:28 pm

    My mom’s birthday and Mother’s Day are side-by-side, so we try to make it a big celebration to cover both days. :) This year, it was a little quieter than usual – but the best moment was watching her enjoy the big steak she requested! :D My mom turned 65 this year. I am SO blessed to have her as my best friend AND my mom!!!!

    My favorite Mother’s day memory is the first with my baby girl (now 23). I did not think I would ever have a baby of my own ( I have 3 step daughters). Hollie was a true gift from God. My husband took Hollie and me out to dinner , Hollie gave me a crystal baby unicorn holding a red crystal heart and her picture. I was on cloud 9… My baby girl, my older daughters and my husband.. Truly blessed.

    my most memorable Mother’s day would be this year. I wanted to go to Hooter’s to eat. The plus side would be 3 out of the 5 of us would eat for FREE so it would dork out. But we were sitting there and one of the Waitresses was making drinks and my 8 year old sin was watching here and she looked over at him and told him you have really pretty eyes. I have never seen my son blush before and he was. It was pretty funny. Then when she was done filling her drinks she came around to our table and just stood and smiled at my son and he got so embarrassed he hid under the table. I have never seen my son do things like this before and it was a pretty enjoyable moment to witness for the first time.

  342. May 17, 2013 @ 9:52 pm

    I always love how we get a bunch of take out so no mothers have to cook on Mother’s Day. The bonus is I don’t have to cook either. :)

  352. May 17, 2013 @ 9:59 pm

    My favorite moment was when I realized I’m not getting a day off from being a mom on Mother’s Day (cooking and getting kids ready to visit grandparents, no sleeping in), and I decided to enjoy it instead of being grumpy about it – turned out to be a great day even though I didn’t get a second without the kids!

    My parents, son and I head to a local Artists studio tour every year and we make a day of it. It is fun to watch artists blow glass and sculpt.
    The whole day is always enjoyable and relaxing!
    Thank you for the opportunity!
    The sounds yummy :D

    Mother’s Day this year was different. My son was away
    At the Prom party house. But he made sure he
    Remembered me by texting a greeting. First thing
    In the morning before the flowers arrived. That’s my
    Favorite Mother’s Day so far!

    My favorite Mother’s Day memories are when my kids do the sweetest things like surprise me with a breakfast they made all by themselves, or picked out the perfect card to make me feel like I am the best mom in the whole wide world!! I love my boys Soooo much!!!

    My favorite mother’s day moment would be giving my mom a spa package that she so needs from having a stressful hip replacement surgery.

    I love when the boys were in elementary school and they made cards nd cute gifts. Those were the best!

  376. May 17, 2013 @ 10:54 pm

    I was so happy to be able to take my mom, who has Alzheimer’s out to breakfast with my sister. I hadn’t had her out like this in a long time, and with help from the family, it worked out perfect. I will always have this memory.

  377. May 17, 2013 @ 10:56 pm

    Getting a bunch of beautiful Calla Lilies from my daughter one year.

  378. May 17, 2013 @ 11:01 pm

    I loved this past Mothers Day. My kids and I spent the weekend with my Mom. The best moment was playing Pictionary with them. We just laughed and had a great time together. It was the best present ever on a Mothers Day.

    My favorite moment from this Mother’s Day was having breakfast made by the kids and having my 5 year old ask me when “kids day” was. Lol

  381. May 17, 2013 @ 11:09 pm

    church in the morning and then relaxing with the family.

    My favorite mother’s day moment would have to be my first Mother’s Day as a new mom. My Daughter was 6 months old and I truly began to appreciate the day and what it means to be a mom. I have a whole new respect for my own mom after becoming one!

    My daughters ex boyfriend brought me picked flowers on Mothers Day this year. It was incredibly sweet since they have been broken up for over a year and I had already seen my daughter the day before so I knew there wasn’t going to be anything to my actual Mothers Day day….

  389. May 18, 2013 @ 12:04 am

    My fave Mothers Day Moment is waking up to my kids making breakfast and giving me their cards they made for me!

    My last mother’s day with my mom was hard, but I will always remember. She was in the hospital and we wanted to make things as nice as possible for her, so I made her her favorite rice pudding and brought her flowers. Simple, but it is what she loved.

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment was a surprise visit by my son for Mother’s Day when he was away at college. I had no idea what he was planning. My hubs took be out to a restaurant for dinner to ease my sadness on not seeing my son. What a thrill when the server handing me my menu was my son Chris. It is a Mother’s Day I will never forget.

    Visiting our neighbor who never had children of her own on Mother’s Day at the retirement center and then chatting with all the moms there. It made me feel great sharing my day with them.

    This is a crazy one, not a fun one either lol but life as a Mom is a roller coaster! This year while eating at a restaurant my son got sick, pooped himself threw up the whole YUCK during Mothers Day dinner, I will NOT forget that! But my favorite was earlier that morning before he got sick it was a simple I love you and happy mothers day with a hug, hes only 3 and I look forward to so many more Mother’s Days.

    I love having my mother over for a special dinner and dessert of her choice since she can’t eat anything with spices so we can’t go out to dinner. But, everyday is a special moment with her anyway.

    Every Mother’s Day is filled with great moments and every Mother’s Day my husband would tease me about buying me a gift, saying that I wasn’t his mother! God bless him, he passed in 2013 at 47….so young and we miss him terribly.

  418. May 20, 2013 @ 6:41 pm

    This would be a big help! Thanks for sharing!

    I think my favorite Mother’s Day was this year, because my kids are getting to the age where they can make things on their own, and so this year I got a lot of homemade stuff from them, and that’s always the best! Always makes me cry!

  430. May 23, 2013 @ 8:54 am

    Ours is always a little basic because I’m a single mom so I’m the one that makes the plans, but just being thankful for my kids is enough for me (though breakfast in bed wouldn’t hurt) :-)

    My Favorite mother’s day moment was a few years ago when my grandmother was able to come for a visit. Very special having 3 generations of mothers together that day!

    I remember making Mom a special present in Girl Scouts. I must have been about 7 or 8. Mom picked me up and while running to the car, I tripped and it broke. I was so upset. Mom consoled me and used that as a teaching moment and instilled in me that it’s “The thought that counts.” Guess it must have worked because I remember it, 50 years later!

  433. May 23, 2013 @ 8:57 am

    My favorite moment was the first year my daughter picked out flowers for me on Mother’s Day! She was so proud!

  434. May 23, 2013 @ 8:58 am

    I think this year was my favorite. We had a nice bbq and hangout with my husbands side of the family. We laughed the day away!!

  435. May 23, 2013 @ 8:58 am

    It would have to be this year’s MD. We went canoeing and had a blast!

    No real favorite moment, all mother’s days are special to me.

  437. May 23, 2013 @ 8:58 am

    My favorite mothers day memory is from 6 years ago, all of my grandmothers were able to travel and still with us, we had delicious mini sized desserts from Dorothy Lane Market, fresh cut flowers and great conversations.

    Listening to stories from my mom and grandma’s it was so fun. I wrote a lot of the family stories down so that they wouldn’t be forgotten.. I will always remember that holiday.

  438. May 23, 2013 @ 8:58 am

    This mother’s day was wonderful since my mom flew here so that we could spend the week together!

  439. May 23, 2013 @ 8:58 am

    I only have two mother’s days under my belt but this year was just amazing! It was spent with my sisters, their children, my mom, and my grandma. We didn’t do anything special but had a nice brunch as a family.

    There is no 1 moment that stands out, for Mothers day is just wonderful when my family is home with us and we can do things together. Generally, we have a branding of our calves on that day, and then not only family but, frioends gather withus also.

    My kids set up a little spa — I got my hair brushed, my shoulders and feet rubbed, my hands and feet lotioned, a back rub, etc. They truly know how to pamper!

  453. May 23, 2013 @ 9:05 am

    I would have to say I have a new favorite moment each year. I really enjoy seeing the joy & excitement on my children’s faces as they hand me their Mother’s Day craft that they made at daycare. They usually can’t wait until the Sunday they are so excited. That’s my favorite moment!

  454. May 23, 2013 @ 9:08 am

    My favorite Mother’s Day was seeing my own daughter with her baby boy on her first Mother’s Day!

  455. May 23, 2013 @ 9:08 am

    Every year that I can spend Mother’s Day with my mom and my son is special because I know she won’t be around forever.

  456. May 23, 2013 @ 9:09 am

    spending a relaxing day at the spa together

  457. May 23, 2013 @ 9:21 am

    This is the first year my son has done anything for Mother’s Day since her was a kid, he is now 34. He called me and asked if I wanted to go out for Breakfast for Mother’s Day, I told him I would love to, it was wonderful. I was so excited and breakfast was great!:)

    My mother in law passed away the Friday before Mothers Day. On that Mothers Day Sunday my children who were teenagers at the time came to me that morning and told me that they didn’t know what they would do without me in their lives. Coming from teenagers I can tell you that was a very special day for me!

    My favorite Mother’s Day moment is every mothers day. Knowing that my mother is still alive for me to share that beautiful day with is worth more than anything else.

    Last year when it was 5 generations of mothers having a meal together to celebrate mothers day! I loved every minute of it!

    My favorite Mothers Day memory is this year when my daughter helped daddy make my breakfast and then give me the stack of cards she made me. On one she got confused and said “Happy Birthday Mothers Day” it was priceless.

    Favorite moment on Mother’s day is just being with my mom. Getting to do everything for her. Don’t take moments for granted. I lost her when I was 13 and she was 38.

    When my grandsons saw me getting out of car and rushed over to give me a hug and a kiss! Only get to see them about once a month so this was a extra-my daughter and I agreed to meet halfway. My grandson later told me that I could move in with them.He said he would move out of his room. I laughed and said what do I do with my house-he said -leave grandpa there so we can visit!

    This is the way to do strawberry shortcake-we have a group in school that does fundraisers with a company called Marketday-I buy sliced choc cake/with choc chips and keep in freezer for just this occasion!

    My favorite moment is when my kids woke me up with homemade mothers day cards and my husband had breakfast waiting for me.

    My best Mother’s Day was last year when I got to do what I wanted to do all day. Hubby made breakfast, we went to church, out for lunch and home to relax . I spent time with my mom the day before.

    A perfect Mother’s day is going out to lunch with my mom and daughter and then go shopping.

  513. May 23, 2013 @ 7:32 pm

    My mom is in Nebraska and I’m in Florida. One Mother’s Day I was actually able to fly home and surprise her! Still not sure how I pulled it off without her finding out in advance but it was great!

    A few years back, my husband and children made me a breakfast parfait. Not only did it taste good, it looked great. I honestly thought they bought it already made until I went down to the kitchen and saw the mess…lol.

    My favorite mother’s day moment was this past mother’s day when I took my mom to a movie that she has wanted to see and took her out to dinner. It was a relaxing day for both of us and gave us a chance to just enjoy each other’s company
