Mommy Dearest

Happy Mother's Day
to all my mommy birds!

Saturday evening was spent frantically searching the house for the card I had purchased for Mom earlier this week. Not finding it, I went to bed exhausted & irritated that I would have to go back to the store & get another one in the morning. I woke up to my Sweet Boy handing me a card & wishing me a Happy Mommy Day :) Wondering to myself how he managed to get me a card when I know no one had taken him to the store to purchase one...I opened the card...the very card I had spent the night looking for :) Ahahahaha! He's all " I know you thought it was a real funny card so I knew you'd like it!" My mom got a big kick out of "her card" that The Boy had given me! Good thing my BF was in town & had gotten her one too or else it might have been a cardless holiday for her ;)

& the winner is....

Sorry for being so late with the giveaway winner! My BF flew in from Tampa at the last minute & we had lots of catching up to do & there was sooo much thrifting to be done (pictures of the loot coming soon!)! I knew you all would understand :)

So without further ado, I had her pick a random # & the winner of the Mother's Day giveaway is ....# 4...My dearest Christina from icandy who said "My mother would be a diamond... the best there is!"

Congrats Christina! Shoot me an email & your earrings will be on the way!

Wishing all you Mommies
endless patience,wisdom
& lots of goodnight kisses from your kiddos!
