What We Did for Mother's Day


Despite the family feeling poorly throughout the weekend (and still as I write this), we all pulled ourselves together, threw aside the snotty tissues and hot bottles and made our way out to celebrate Mother's day, as it should be done. The day started with flowers and what a beautiful bouquet my fiancé got for her on behalf of all of us. Admittedly, we didn't buy her a gift but that's because the woman has everything she needs nor she is too bothered about gifts, so instead we thought we would treat her to something different.

Mum cooks, cleans, does our laundry and more, so on Mother’s day we wanted one of these to be out of the equation and took her out to eat instead. At first, when Ocean Loans contacted me and asked me to treat mum to something nice this Mother's Day, I wanted to take her to Sketch London (I even instagrammed a beautiful photo of the restaurant here @pamella_scalfi) but given the state of healthy around the house, none of us were really up for it on Friday (the only day available for a booking). After hopelessly searching for a restaurant (yes we are last minute kind of people) I booked a Brazilian Barbecue Restaurant I had been to once before on my 18th Birthday. We don't usually go to these grills very often (mostly because they are not the cheapest in town), but not having to worry about finances thanks to Ocean Loans, not only I took mum with me but also the entire family!


We indulged into all of the delicious food Rodizio Preto had to offer and it almost looked like we weren't sick at all given the amount of food we all consumed. Rodizio Preto is all about the skewers of sizzling meats carved at the table, making it the Brazilian dining experience to try and a must for meat lovers. Not only can you choose between 15 different cuts of spit roasted meats, the buffet contains salads, pastas, rice and the famous “Feijoada” and “Feijao”, all freshly made and very authentic. With an all-you-can-eat buffet, we tried a little bit of everything and I'm happy to report that the flavours were spot on, they reminded us of home and made the day truly special.

We left the restaurant pretty stuffed and it most definitely put us all in a better mood. We had a great lunch out and I could see in mum's eyes how happy she was to be surrounded by her family and have everyone enjoy something with her. It’s true what they say, mother's day should be everyday but it's nice to treat her once in a while and not take for granted the time we do spend together. I hope you had fun Mamãe!

What did you guys do for mother's day? Let me know below!
Thanks for reading and have a nice week ahead!

xoxo

  1. Sounds like you had a lovely day together. In Denmark, mother's day is coming up in May, so we still have to wait a few months ;)

  2. It looks like you had great fun and it also seems like everyone has a cold at the moment, as I'm sat in bed feeling full of one myself as I write this. It's good that you managed to pull yourself together for your fabulous meal though. I luckily had already had an early Mother's Day on Friday and we went for lunch and drinks, which is just as well because yesterday I wasn't much fun at all, feeling like this.

  48. Those flowers are so beautiful, how thoughtful of your fiancé to get your mum those! I feel the same with my mum, she has everything she needs. But every year I wrack my brains and give myself a headache, thinking of what I should buy her lol. The food you ate looked delicious though, I've never tried Brazilian food before. What a lovely treat for your mum and even better that the expenses were covered too.:D
