don't forget your mama.

we are less than two weeks out from mother's day, so if you are planning on ordering something for your mama, this is the week to do it! i thought i'd put together some mother's day inspiration for you just in case you were at a loss for ideas. :)


stardusters | julep
"as sure as the sun" album | ellie holcomb
porcelain vase | wapa studio
polka dot coffee mug | NSPottery
"beautiful person" print | jenny high smith lettering
"sympathy for the skin" body lotion | lush
bright geometric classics | TOMS (because some moms are hipsters ;))
bread & wine | shauna niequist
golden wisteria iPhone case | senay studio

of course, none of this is as good as giving your mama a big hug, or calling her up and telling her how much you love her. so be sure to do that. okay? okay. my mama will be on a sailboat in the florida keys on mother's day...without me (can you tell i'm just a little bit jealous?)...but we will celebrate her when she comes home.

how do YOU celebrate mother's day?

we made it through the storms....several tornado warnings, so i stayed in the basement for a while, but nothing touched down near us.

These are all really good ideas! I usually bake my mom a cake or dessert of some sort and the rest of my siblings go in on helping cook dinner. It's a fun time! I'm loving that polka dot mug, though. My mom would love it!

I love all of this... all of it. I have yet to decide on a gift for my mom. I am probably over thinking it. I keep thinking that I want to make it really epic because my brother and I are both far away. I'm determined to come up with something! :)

Rachel said...

Such wonderful ideas! Thank girl I've been trying to think of something to get my Mom! I love that phone case! So pretty! I think I'm jealous of your mom in the FL keys too!

Mother's Day is always so hard for me, I want to get my mom something amazing but can never think of it!! I love this list though, I'm thinking Bread and Wine might be a good choice this year, especially if I paired it with some actual wine . . .

Madison said...

I haven't decided what I'm getting my momma yet, but I need to! Lol. I love mother's day though :)
