I cannot believe how long it’s been since I’ve last posted here on my blog! I knew I couldn’t pass up creating a post for Mother’s Day because it means so much more to me every year that passes.
I remember when I was much younger telling my parents every year that it didn’t make sense…why was there a “Mother’s Day” and a “Father’s Day” and NO. KID’S. DAY? I chuckle at my young naivete and can answer this question 10x over now. My Mother would always respond that “every day is kid’s day,” and no truer words have been spoken. We as parents (ahem, and more specifically Mothers, amiright?) bust our behinds every moment of every day for our kid/s. The amount of finagling that it takes to run a household and live semi-productive lives is insane here in 2019 so what better excuse do we need than to reward ourselves for such repetitive sacrifice.
I think we can all agree, Mothers specially are angels sent down from Heaven. We are the CEOs of our individual households – cooking (sometimes), cleaning (also sometimes), packing bags, wiping booties, brushing teeth, kissing boo boos, researching the best schools, scheduling EVERYTHING, rocking every single task we are given and NEVER ever putting ourselves first. So now, mamas, it’s our day. A day you should literally ask for anything and everything you’ve ever wanted. You f*cking deserve it and for the love, please don’t waste anyone’s time trying to convince otherwise. I have compiled all the things on my Mother’s Day splurge list to share with you all in hopes you are inspired to ask for the same things or come up with something else equally as bomb. These gifts can easily be applied to your own mothas as well because she’s straight up amazing too. Let’s begin.
It is officially that time of the year – HOLIDAY SEASON! Halloween this year was so much fun and I know Thanksgiving & Christmas will be too. Donald and I are hosting this year so between the food & decor, I want to make sure it’s as magical as possible for everyone.
One of the ways I plan on ensuring a grand time is by planning to give great gifts. I’ve posed the question before – what kind of gift giver are you? Are you someone who is dashing through the mall late Christmas Eve to pick up whatever you can find? Are you someone who meticulously plans all year long? Or are you somewhere in between? Comment down below and let me know which one you’re most like! I lean towards the meticulously plan all year side. When a loved one mentions, “oh I really want that,” I take note. These days everyone is so hard to buy for that I find it really helps if you have a list of requested items!
If you’re in a gift slump or if you need just a few ideas to finish your gift giving list, don’t worry! I am happy to have put together an ULTIMATE gift guide for you all that will include UNIQUE gifts for all of the special people in your life. You will find the gifts below listed in categories in hopes of making it easier on you all to find exactly what you need. I will link as much as I can so that you can find more detailed information on the appropriate site. Annnnd GO!
