Sunday is our family day. Its M's only full day off (he works 1/2 days Saturdays). So its the only FULL day we have as a family & boy do we take advantage.
Mothers Day started early for me as I bought myself this VERY VERSITILE (and awesomely "GREEN") purse in my favy color... its more purple in person. (UrbanJunket): Originally $105...on sale for $32 through Jasmere.com .
Wondering why I bought MYSELF something? Well M has this theory... Im NOT his mother... so why should he have to get me something? My thoughts are that I am the mother of "his" child and that is to be celebrated
I am a good mom. I deserve a little something every now & again. So what if I have a lot of purses
I had a big project due the following week so I was working my butt off all weekend, Saturday (the day before MD) E and I needed to run to ACMoore for some supplies for my project, as I walk outside my FIL directs my attention to these:
"These are yours, they're from E" I got the biggest smile on my face. M never ceases to amaze me. At this point E says "Mama meme give you flowers!! Meme gives you flowers!!!!" She was so excited. Not even 5 mins later I get a txt :
"Do you like them? Happy Mothers Day baby"
Then on Sunday M asks me if I want a special breakfast... "No just waffles & coffee, but you will make it wrong so I did it already" So while we were eating he handed me a card...
"Happy Mothers Day" ($25 GC to target!)
"I won't dare try to pick out something (clothes/shoes wise) for you"
I wasn't expecting anything else b/c I got the flowers & even that was more then what I was expecting b/c of his philosophy. I was pleasantly surprised, and he could tell by the big smile on my face. With my GC I got:
This colorful, perfect for summer, [& PERFECT length, which for someone 5foot is hard to do], Maxi Dress, A cute, flowy, T-Back black tank; with sequin accents (hard to see in pic) and my favs purple/berry colored ballet flats w.ruffles. These go w. over half my closet (and my new dress & shirt since its black!):
We also went to the outlets, b/c I had been wanting to go forever. What better day then Mothers Day? While there I got a few cardigans from Gap and a shirt for $10 from Banana Republic, thats a steal, yall! I bought E a pair of Neon, hurts your eyes they are so bright, pink crocs but not the typical style. She got these:
Over all it was a great day. Sadly it led into one of the worst weeks we've had since we've lived up here. She got yet another ear infection, we experienced the day from hell , she got a stomach bug, then she got a little better and I got sick. Now we are all healthy and we can look back and smile b.c thats LIFE. It happens.
Thanks to my wonderful fiancee & daughter (and mom too a few days before) for the best Mothers Day yet.
See yall tomorrow!
