wait, mother's day is when?!

Doesn't it seem like the month of April has flown by? I hope I'm not the only one who is feeling like I lost a month of my life in the blink of an eye. It's even more crazy to me that April went so quickly while also being such a gray, rainy, cold little patch of "spring."

But it DID go by fast, and now, all of a sudden, we are just a week or so away from Mother's Day?! Mike and I are both feeling behind on Mother's Day planning, and I actually only realized that it was fast-approaching when I got an email reminder from my friend Jamie's Stella and Dot website that it's time to do a bit of shopping for the mamas.

I'm hoping the weather will cooperate next weekend for a nice outdoor lunch--I've planned out a special menu and started working on some pretty spring decorations and centerpieces to spruce up our deck. But I'm kinda stumped beyond that.

So... what are you guys getting for YOUR moms? And, other mothers, what things would be on your Mother's Day wish lists?


  1. My mom got an e-reader for Christmas (nook or Kindle..I'm not sure) so I'm getting her a Vera Bradley cover to prettify it a little bit :) Brunch or lunch are also on the game plan for the day. Hope you have a great Mother's Day!!!!

  2. new reader and follower great blog.
