mothers are priceless.

okay, i'm in big trouble.
and i mean big trouble.
you see, when you don't typically have a mom around to 
do all things girly and fun... you don't spend much money.
it's the normal: grocery shopping and saturday date night with lovebird.
however, when you do have your mom around...
that story changes. big time. 
with the combination of it being spring break {free time} and
the fact that i live in a place surrounded by fabulous shopping in every direction,
it's a little hard to not spend money. 
or should i say, it's too easy to spend money?
wether it be spent on clothes, accessories, diet cokes, lunches, decorations...
it all adds up. and it adds up quickly, might i add.
lovebird is about ready to hide my little wallet.
however, as much fun as it is to spend money on a new outfit,
there is nothing like "spending" time with my mom.
we are best friends.
and have been for as long as i can remember.
i was in need of a little mother-daughter time to reboot my engine.
she sometimes feels too far away from me.
being in her arms these last few days has been lovely.
yes, most definitely- spending hours shopping, drinking diet cokes,
reading, laughing until our bellies hurt, going on lunch dates
and running errands has been the absolute blast.
but, simply being in the company of my mom is worth far more than
any outfit, diet coke, decoration or pair of shoes i could buy.
i love her dearly.

p.s. i'm back to "normal" blogging on thursday.
and stay tuned i have an awesome giveaway coming up! 


  1. Aren't moms the best. I told my mom I would die if she ever moved more than an hour away.

  2. glad you got to spend some time your with your mama :)
    and yes, shopping always has to get done when they are around. it just comes with the territory.

  3. first of all, your mom is gorgeous. really. and second, go spend that money! mom/daughter relationships are made for spending money. life is too short. (don't tell your husband that i told you to do this)

  4. how sweet! you and your mom look amazing in the b&w pic-classic!

    have a wonderful day!

  5. adorable! my mom and me are EXACTLY the same way!
    the bestest of friends <333

    happy wednesday!

  6. Aw! There is no replacement for a mom, they have the most special place in our hearts!

  7. That's such a pretty photo of you and your mom :)
    We tend to do the same thing here...when visitors arrive, we start spending waaay too much money shopping, going out to eat, etc. But money's obviously replaceable, so I say splurge away on those lunch dates where you get to have quality time with your mom! :)

    Left brain, right brain, pug brain.

  8. That's so sweet! Mother-Daughter shopping trips are the best. There's nothing like it.
