Today we are talking about the best (or worst) Mother’s Day gifts you have ever given or received. As mom’s we of course cherish every little handprint made into artwork and of course we love receiving household appliances right? Well here are a few of my favorites over the years.
And my mom the same year…wow! I love that I still have these cards. Having my parents stand behind me and show me such love during this time in my life made all the difference in me being able to become a mom at 21.
Here’s the deal about jewelry, unless you absolutely 100% know that it is something I want it is not worth spending alot of money. Keith bought me the heart locket one Mother’s Day and I do love it. He took Carly and Dillon to pick something out for me in recent years and they came home originally with a Brighton bracelet holding these charms. It wasn’t that it was not beautiful but y’all…I hated it. Of course it was purchased locally at a boutique and there was no exchanging so I ended up spending more to add the charms to a chain. It is just so not me and I rarely wear this which makes me sad when I know how much it costs and remember how super excited Carly Jo was to give it to me. #ihavenopokerface Hmm…maybe I’ll wear it this year for Mother’s Day.
A New Bible….
My bible was from my confirmation when I was 12 and it was falling all apart (sadly from age and not overuse). I had begun really trying to be more intentional with bible reading and asked for a new bible and Jordan heard me! It was a sweet treasure to receive for Mother’s Day.
Art Work of Course….
This just cracks me up every..single…time. I really love that one of his dislikes was the TAKS test. Ha! He apparently was very sure of his athletic ability even at 8 as there is more you can’t read that is hilarious.
Especially sweet to go back and read right now when he is 14 and doesn’t always think I make his life so sweet!
