Maxi dress - resale
Sweater - Old Navy...so old in fact I can't even remember when I got it
Hair: Hot mess in the cool wind, but the shrubbery does a fantastic job of camouflaging it.
Li'l G is in a Meijer coat, inherited dress, Carter's leggings, Dollar Store socks and Payless sparkly shoes. We're high rollers over here.
Though Li'l G will be three this year, I have to admit that this is the first year I have felt like a grown up mama on Mother's Day. It was nice to spend the day enjoying our family, even though the littles got somewhere between a C and C- for Mass behavior when they were awake. (Baby J slept through the first half.) They are sweet and well mannered. Li'l G just likes to add her own soundtrack, and Baby J just wants to be on the move. Tis the season!
We enjoyed a tasty brunch after Mass and I got to go shopping with the loot from all the mom emerituses in my life. No resale today, mostly because I needed to purchase "unmentionables" if you catch my drift. Follow that up with a pedicure to get my feet ready for warm weather when it finally decides to visit awhile, and it was a banner day, including some beautiful and thoughtful gifts. Now I'm curious as to the origin of the phrase "banner day"...
What else we wore: Making pudding in matching aprons (part of my gift)
Left: New four-way medal from the Hubbers, who remembered I had mentioned wanting one to add to my necklace. My standard neckware fare now.
Right: a lovely plaque with a kitchen prayer that my mom in law heard me mention while we were shopping together. Sneaky lady bought it, and I didn't even know.
That's our Mother's Day 2013 Sunday around here! For more Mass fashions, visit the ladies over at Fine Linen & Purple!
