This post is a mash up of happy memory recaps, momma style, and some wonderful things I found that would be perfect for any mom!
My birthday happens to fall on mother’s day this year (double the fun! Oh and it’s nurse’s week…I’m a nurse…triple the fun!) and I know my WONDERFUL (yes he reads this blog, but he really is wonderful) husband already got me gifts, but if you are still looking for ideas you came to the right place! Read on for a Mother’s Day Mash Up!
This weekend my little sis graduated from college! Know it’s on to grad school this summer! Woohoo! The pictures below show off the stylin women in my family! I wore something layered and easy to move around in! Gracie had a blast, but I definitely made the right clothing choice as she was up and down the aisles and busy making new friends throughout the ceremony! I layered a short black dress, with gray legging, black cardigan, and for some color through on my scarf from Gautemala and some coral colored shoes! My sis looked awesome in her cap and gown, but even better in her dress from Maurices! So cute! Gracie sported her TOMS shoes and a dress from Guatemala that we bought years ago hoping we would someday have a little girl! It finally fits! And notice mom and grandma, both equally stylin (Grandma totally rocks the zebra print!)
Shirt look familiar? I try to wear a lot of my clothes with different pairings and in different ways. Today it was the chambray shirt with my purple pants and a handmade headband. Notice Gracie checking out Daddy’s toothbrush in the corner.
Now on the Mother’s day gifts that any mom would love…I know I would!
Head over to A Holy Experience
, Ann Voskamp’s (author of One Thousand Gifts
), website and check out her “So God Made a Mother; When the Giving Tree is Really the Giving Mother”
post. Here is a wonderful bit from it:
Because God needed someone to love the least and the little into real whole people, and He knew that to love is to suffer so God made a mother.
God had said –
I need someone to get up at midnight and scoop the most fragile of humanity close to her warmth and rock though she can hardly stand and nourish though she’s mostly sleep-starved and change the diaper and the sheets and the leaked on, leaked through, and leaked down clothes though she’ll have to change them in the morning and next week and that won’t change for years.
So God made a Mother.
TOMS shoes, need I say more? Already got a wonderful pair for my birthday! Dustin does not do a good job at not letting me open presents until my birthday! Order your mom a pair today if you still want to get it by Mother’s Day!
Maybe a pretty new Journal! This one from I Love it All
on Etsy would be perfect for recording gifts and keeping any busy mom’s life in order!
Looking for gifts that give back? A blogger friend, Lindsy
, is auctioning off different handmade items
to raise money for the little girl (Glory) that they are adopting! Even a few Oh Tiny Gifts
products have been donated. There are so many wonderful things for Mom and the money all goes to a great cause!
Ok, and just for fun because what mom doesn’t want an awesome go with anything, feel like royalty skirt? Matching skirt for Gracie? Yes please with a cherry on top! Check it out at Kellie Falconer Design
on Etsy! And there’s a Mother’s day discount!
Happy up and coming Mother’s Day and Nurse’s Week and any other May 12 b-days!
