it has come to my attention that mothers' day is coming.
(actually, i was informed of the date after i registered harper for a swim meet that would take place on the holiday, and when i told my family what i'd done, they gave me so much trouble that i had to un-register her.)
anyway ... i'm gonna pretend that we are fancy holiday-remembering, gift-giving people, and make a list of my dream mothers' day ideas:
"gilmore girls"-inspired candles. because, SO. MUCH. YES.
inspired room and color at home coloring books. because while coloring books are amazing, house coloring books are amazinger. and especially house coloring books created by melissa michaels and the petersiks.
an extra large planter for my aloe, whom i affectionately call The Kraken, and who desperately needs a new, extra large home.
this print, from rifle paper co., because chicago will always mean something to me.
and i could really *really* use a new camera bag
and what is mothers day without a beautiful bouquet of flowers? and this bouquet from my favorite flower shop is pretty much perfection:
or maybe a meaningful piece of jewelry?
chances are, my mothers' day will look a lot like years past: sleep in (i'll still be up before everyone else, and if i'm lucky i'll make it to 8:00 a.m.), quiet coffee, lunch in south minneapolis, a walk around lake harriet to look at flowers and houses, and then who knows where the rest of the day will go ... a good book? a nap? yard work?
anything is possible.
but if i have my kiddos and mchotness, that's all i really need.
(though those coloring books would be pretty awesome ...)
