Sitting Like a Lady
Mother’s Day started with a bang. Literally. As I got a head start on the laundry Sunday morning (or so I thought) parts of our washing machine suddenly detached and made the scariest noise I have ever heard. Needless to say the machine is no longer usable, and what better timing for the machine to break than a Sunday when a week’s worth of laundry needs to be done?
So I ended up spending the better part of Mother’s Day at Best Buy searching for a new washer/dryer and then lugging two giant trash bags of dirty clothes to my in-laws place so that Ali and Maya would have clean socks to wear this week. Happy Mother’s Day to me!
My marathon laundry aside, the day wasn’t without its share of perks…
What holiday isn’t great when gifts from Anthropologie are involved?
And would it really be a holiday if my mother-in-law didn’t give me a pair of gorgeous shoes?
Maya made me a place mat so that there was no confusion as to why my presence is tolerated around here:
Flowers were also involved…some real:
Some better than real:
But the highlight of the day was that both lunch and dinner were provided and I didn’t have to cook or move a single dish. What could be better?
Maybe getting my daughter to stop slurping her tea and getting her to sit like a lady.
Well I guess there is always next year, right?
What was the highlight of your weekend?
