If you're not into food and want to try connecting with your Mother in other ways why not try a yoga session together? 

Mother's Day Partner Yoga & Connect at Bliss YogaSpa

Sun, 14 May 2017

2:00 PM – 4:00 PM

5954 Mullen Way, Edmonton, Alberta T6R 0S9

Touch elevates our emotions, relieves stress and is great for overall health. In this fun and connective 2 hour workshop, you and your mom/wife/sister will learn and explore partner yoga postures, adjustments and touch that will help to release muscular tension and balance the nervous system.

We will also explore non-verbal communication techniques, partner meditations, aroma therapy and massage.

This is the perfect time of year to celebrate the very first relationship you ever had in this life time, and reconnect with mom!

In celebration of the wonderful mother's and mother figures in our lives, each participant will receive a BABOR gift at the end of the event.


Ride for Mom hosted by Blackjacks Roadhouse & Games Room 

Sat, 13 May 2017

10:30 AM – 6:00 PM

2110 Sparrow Drive, Nisku, Alberta T9E 8A2

I would never have heard of this place if it weren't for my friend Tyler.  I'm really looking forward to getting there for a night of dancing over the summer!


The Ride for Mom is a motorcycle event to raise awareness for domestic violence through a one day motorcycle ride.

Our goal is to assist the Edmonton Domestic Violence Shelters Engage (EDVSE) to end domestic violence. Over 10,000 women, their children, and seniors were assisted by EDVSE member shelters in 2015 and 2016. Too often, those faced with situations of abuse feel they have no voice. The Ride for Mom is the voice to help victims regain control of their lives and to live in a world free of domestic violence.

Registration is from 8AM until 10AM, and kickstands go up at 10:30 right here at Blackjacks. The first stop is at the Reynolds Museum in Wetaskiwin, the second is at the Chop Shop is Camrose, and the third stop is at the Toefield Public Library. All riders who wish to participate in the draws and prize giveaways must return to Blackjacks before 4PM.

We hope to see you all out here riding for a great cause.

Feel free to register at

Last but NOT LEAST, if you want to have some incredible Italian food why not try going where my family traditionally go?
