I love my mom.
She's pretty amazing.
She's sweet, kind, patient, beautiful, sassy, particular about some things, easy going about most things, generous, loving, a professional marathon shopper and my mom.
I can't express to you how blessed I was to be raised and loved by this woman. :)
My mom and I hang out a lot, she's been stuck home for a week straight taking care of my sick step-dad (he's getting better), and I needed a new Easter outfit. What else to do but go shopping?
We shopped until our feet were about to drop off (I'm serious!). :)
At one point, I got a shirt stuck around my head trying to get it on and I started yelling, "help, help!" My mom started laughing and trying to pull it off, but she couldn't get it off!! My face was turning red, I was laughing hysterically at this point and my mom was bent over laughing so hard. We finally found a zipper and got it off. Our faces were bright tomato red! It was hilarious. (!!!) I love my mom so much. We think alike.
All in all we went in to almost every store in the mall, with a break for coffee in the middle so we could have enough energy to continue shopping. White chocolate mocha with whipped cream on top - YUM!
Oh yeah, the picture above? I needed a smaller size in a dress that I was trying on. Problem was, the only small was on the manequin. I looked at my mom, she looked at me, smiled and said, "I'll be right back." When she came back into the dressing room she was carrying the MANEQUIN! She didn't just take the dress off of it, she brought the whole thing in!!! I started laughing again. Really loudly. Yes, this is my mother.
We had so much fun. I'm going up to her house to spend Easter with her.
Home is where family is and home is good for my heart.
I love my mom.
