We started celebrating Mother's Day on Saturday. My parents live about 2 miles away from my house and I am so grateful I get to celebrate this holiday with her. I gave my mom two frames with quotes about a mom(you can find the free printable a few posts back on my blog) and also this beautiful wallet from MZ Wallace in blue which is her favorite color.
Along with the wallet for my mom, MZ Wallace sent me this handbag in gold/silver sparkle linen for Mother's Day which was so sweet and thoughtful of them. I chose this bag because it's a classic style and the gold/silver hue matches with anything. Thank you MZ Wallace!
Saturday lunch we took my parents out to dinner.
My 1st grader drew a picture of me. It looks just like me, doesn't it? ;)
I woke up on Mother's Day to breakfast in bed with handmade cards & chocolates.
And that awkward moment when you're minding your own business & preparing to teach the Young Women at church while sitting in the halls eating a cookie, when a lady walks by and while laughing hysterically says to you, "Oh my gosh, you're just the funniest person ever, every time I see you, you're eating something! What is that? You have a WHOLE bag of cookies! You always have snacks with you every Sunday and eat it during class and sacrament!" I had nothing to say to that so I gave her a cookie....
Then a couple weeks ago I posted this on my FB:
so Jay made me elotes for dinner on Mother's Day! How sweet and thoughtful was that?
We had my parents over too and Jay made steamed crabs, me and my mom's favorite. For dessert we ate cheesecake with fresh berries.
Every year when Mother's Day approaches, I think of the women who can't conceive or something's stopping them from having a child and it makes me sad. It must be a hard holiday for these women. So for me, Mother's Day is about celebrating ALL women who are nurturers, who lead others, who befriends others, who helps others. So I hope all of you had a wonderful Mother's Day.
