Happy Birthday, Mama.

We had a great weekend.  I got a few things done around the house, M had another soccer class, and we went to a baseball game.  The sweetest part of our weekend was my mom's birthday dinner.  We got together with some family and celebrated her 50 years.

All of a sudden, 50 isn't as old as it used to be.  I've always seen my mom as young, and I still do.  I just hope she's passed those good genes down to me...

She got some great gifts, but her favorite was thrift store gift certificates.  Not kidding.  You should have seen her reaction -- it was hilarious -- you would've thought it was a million dollars.  I know thrifting is a huge blogging trend right now, but my mama's an old school thrifter.  I'm willing to bet everything she has on in this picture is thrifted - down to the earrings.  And she always finds this great stuff.  Just this weekend, she gave me a bag with 10+ dresses for M.  And the dresses she gets aren't just regular ol' dresses -- many times they're high-end/smocked.  She's a pro.     

Anyway, my mom is the sweetest, most genuine person I know.  She's funny and sassy, yet she has the most gentle soul. I'm pretty lucky she's mine.  

I hope everyone has a great week!  I'll be back in a day or two.
