HOUSTON – A ton of businesses are helping you celebrate your mom this weekend. From food to facials, you've got no excuse not to treat your mom to something special.

BOGO salon services

Services at The Salon at Remington College are already a steal. For the entire month of May, moms can get any service free when you buy one at both the Greenspoint and the Webster campuses. 

Free waffle bar brunch, mimosas, massages

Head to Meridiana in the Manvel/ Iowa Colony area Saturday from noon until 2 p.m. for a free waffle bar brunch, massages and a mimosa bar. No reservations are required. Just drop by the new home community off 288. To reach Meridiana, take the Meridiana Parkway exit from Texas 288 heading north or south. Heading south on Texas 288, take the parkway exit and turn left onto the overpass into Meridiana. Those heading north on Texas 288 can take the parkway exit and turn right into the community.
