Mother's Day


Mother's Day

This year, for Mother's Day, one of my best friends was in town for the weekend, and I was planning to have brunch with her and her family!! I hadn't seen her in years, so naturally, I wanted to look my best.

These were the outfits I was considering...




(1) Brown/green handkerchief shirt w/ khaki pants ~ needs bright scarf
(2) Green duster, orange tank, khaki pants w/ scarf
(3) Brown lace cardigan, ivory pullover, camel pants, scarf (see below)

The only one that doesn't involve at least a slight compromise with my contrasting chestnut spring color palette is the third one, although my green duster is a lighter version of a color in my palette and might be okay.




She called yesterday morning and had to cancel because her little boy was sick and they'd been up all night and were on their way back home so they could take him to his doctor in VA. So I stayed home in my pjs.

But here's the outfit I was going to wear and might wear when I see my own mom later this week...

Mother's Day Card

My cutie-patootie son made me this card and then, we colored it together. On the front of the card is a bench for sitting on and watching the boats in the water. Inside the card, I am dancing with him, dancing alone, relaxing with a glass of sweet tea, & as a really old lady, enjoying a game of bingo. :)

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

  1. Those outfits are really nice and I especially love the jewelry you laid out with the outfit on the bottom.

    Aren't homemade mother's day cards just the best?

    1. Hi Patti! Isn't it? I liked how he included us dancing together, too. He has taken ballroom dancing lessons with a homeschool class for several years now and occasionally whirls me around a bit. Thanks!! I'm so glad it seems like "me" to you. I've never tried it before, so I'm looking forward to wearing it.
