5 Things: Hug a Mum Edition

Happy Friday and a very (early) Happy Mother's Day to you mothers and motherly people out there! Hope you all had a great week or at least had a nice treat to look forward to this weekend like brunch or a bouquet of flowers. If you haven't planned something nice for the mothers in your life, this is your friendly reminder!

It's also your friendly reminder that it's FRIDAY! Not that you needed that reminder, I imagine, but it's my pleasure to be your Friday call. Sit back, relax, and enjoy another "5 Things" while you're at it:

1) What would happen if grandma ran for president in 2020? A lot more manners and a lot less tweeting. Hmmm... that doesn't sound half-bad. :)

2) Lauren Daigle's "You Say" at the Billboard Awards was goosebump-inducing in the best of ways. Holy Cow! The stark, acoustic rendition was perfect and kudos to Lauren for singing on that tiny stage in the middle of the auditorium like that.

3) War is no laughing matter unless the journalists are using Snapchat, of course. Be prepared for a giggle with this one! :)

4) Back by popular demand (from my mum!), it's Dark Chocolate Tofu Mousse. You can make this gluten free, dairy free, and vegan if your heart so desires. The best part is that you can't really tell that it's tofu. The anti-tofu set in your family will be appropriately impressed and ask for seconds.

5) Your weekly double-dose of adorableness is here: Check out the leaping goats and this baby giraffe and his new shoes. Where's that emoji with the hearts for eyes when you need it?

Okay, that's all for now. Don't forget to hug a mum this weekend!
