Mother's Day Indulgences...

I just love to celebrate holidays... any excuse to have a party! Valentine's Day, Fourth of July and my birthday are a few of my favorites. But Mother's Day is just in a league of it's own.

Of all the holidays on the calendar - this is the one I have EARNED. Somehow cleaning up puke, endlessly sweeping up crumbs, folding laundry over and over, changing diapers and all the other less glamorous parts of motherhood (wait, are there even "glamorous" parts to motherhood at all?) - well, all this hard work pays off for a day of spoilery every May.

My husband is super thoughtful when it comes to special holidays like these... schedules for "activities", menus for homemade meals and hand written cards start popping up (along with a few gifts here and there!) and the thought that goes into it all makes it the most special.

Any of these indulgent and girly gifts would make for a big smiles on Mother's Day morning, no?

(Golden Shadow Earrings, Swarovski, $59)

(Calf Hair Ballet Flats, JCrew, $228)

(Drama Tie Feather Necklace, Juicy Couture, $148)

(Bon Shopper Tote, Kate Spade, $225)

(Chanel No. 5, starting at $95)

(Aviator Sunglasses, Tory Burch, $175)

I would gladly take any of these great gifts... although with life going at a break-neck speed lately I think I am going to simply ask for a day "off" - or two, and maybe breakfast in bed too!

I LOVE that necklace - beautiful. My hubby is not good at remembering these days, so I'll probably just get myself a little something ;o)

love the flats. I want some like it, but cheaper since I know I won't wear them much.

A day off would be so very nice! And those earrings too :-)

I'll happily take the flats and the perfume. I have no idea who'll buy them...but I'll take them anyway!

I found out that a pair of shoes is coming to me ...I just saw the gift bag hidden at my husband's closet...and my son has told me that he bought me "lion shoes". I don't know what it means.
I love animal prints for shoes and belts.
