“We’re going over there Saturday and having a big cookout with the family. Then I’m going to Dallas for my future in-laws, Mother’s Day there. And this year I’ve got to celebrate Mother’s Day with my fiance because we’ve got a 7-month-old. I got her a nice little charm bracelet. It’s definitely interesting this year – a long weekend, to say the least.
