So this post is a few days late. I hate when bloggers complain about not being able to blog, but seriously work has been kicking. my. butt. So bear with me...
Last weekend was Mother's Day. I was so glad I got to spend the day with my Mommy!
This is one of my new favorite pictures of us -- taken on Mother's Day 2011.
This is what I gave my Mom for Mother's Day. A Blurb Photo Book of all of the trips her and I have taken together. Just our mother-daughter trips.
It includes trips to Lake of the Ozarks, Quincy IL, Chicago, Boston, Salem, San Diego, and New York City.
She loved it!
This Mother's Day was a tough one for me, so I was happy that I was distracted by co-hostessing a bridal shower for my God-Sister (my God-Mother's daughter) on Mother's Day. My Mom and I co-hostessed it with another Mother-Daughter that we're all good friends with. And the shower was mainly Mothers and Daughters that we're close with. Very fun.
Here's some of the fun food and decor. Reminded me a lot of my own 2008 Luau Bridal Shower.
The food was so good and my Mom made amazing Mai Tais!
Here are the hostesses, the bride-to-be (in black and white), and her Mom.
Also, my best friend in the whole world (aka my childhood playmate/maid of honor/almost sister) is BACK from her 2.5 years in Ecuador for the Peace Corps. I missed her SO much. I got to spend a lot of last weekend with her. I am so glad she is back! Sadly, she is moving to Washington DC in August, but I know I'll see her a lot more when she's in DC rather than Ecuador.
Reunited and feels so good!
Are you still best friends with someone from your childhood? Do you see them a lot or a little?
