Emily Maynard calls Mother's Day a "really special day," but that doesn't mean she's the one getting totally spoiled.
The single mom, 27, who was previously engaged Jef Holm, hopes her daughter doesn't win her usual battle over where to dine on Maynard's special day.
"It's hopefully a day that we'll get to go to my favorite restaurant instead of Ricki's, like usual," the former Bachelorette told PEOPLE on Thursday with a laugh. "I'm just hoping for Mother's Day, we get to go somewhere that has real silverware, real napkins, and I'll be happy."

Well, this is an interesting Bachelor twist!
Brad Womack – who doled out the roses in season 15 – is keeping things in the franchise family with his apparent new squeeze, AshLee Frazier, who vied for Sean Lowe's heart last season.
Emily Maynard's ex-fiancé, 40, was pictured in an Instagram photo this week, hugging Frazier, 32. Accompanying the cutesy shot was a revealing caption from Frazier, herself, who made it known she and Womack are an item.

They were always there "for all the right reasons." And even now, after 25 combined seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, fans still haven't gotten tired of the drama, cat fights, and hot tub hijinks that make for an amazing season.
Who should win as the best Bachelor of all: Jake Pavelka, who chose bad-girl Vienna only to break up with her in a vicious televised special? Sean Lowe, who vowed to hold off on sex with his pick, Catherine Giudici, until their summer 2013 wedding night? Or Jason Mesnick, who popped the question to Melissa Rycroft, then pulled a switcheroo at the reunion? (He just had a baby with his final choice, Molly Malaney.) And remember Season 2 star Aaron Buerge? He ranks as the highest rated Bachelor of all time, with 26 millions viewers tuning in as he popped the question to Helene Eksterowicz in 2002.

Sean Lowe is the star of the new season of The Bachelor, which debuts Monday, Jan. 7 on ABC. The hunky Dallas businessman and entrepreneur will be blogging about his romantic journey for PEOPLE.com.
Wow! I'm really The Bachelor. It still doesn't feel real.
It seems like just yesterday I was chasing Emily Maynard down the streets of Prague and wondering how she stole my heart when so many people in my past have tried and failed. But it wasn't yesterday – and now enough time has passed to allow my heart to mend and give me perspective and understanding as to why Emily made the best decision for both of us.
The question I'm most often asked is, "Why do you need to be on The Bachelor?" It's a fair question and I'd probably ask the same thing to someone else in my position.
