Whew, it was great being spoiled for a day! Church, lunch at Jason’s Deli, thrifting alone, lasagna & carrot cake, and a book & card… My family rocks.
Emily chose the card; Evan chose the book. And Emily signed the card with her signature “happy faces.” Do you see them?
While at the thrift store, I found this amazing dress for $8.98. That seemed a little steep. I finally decided (after consulting Evan) to take the plunge. But then the kind cashier at the shop only charged me $5! So that was a nice Mother’s Day gift too. :)
It looks a little maternity, but I might wear it to the VT graduation on Saturday anyway.
Later in the evening, I was relieved of all duties so I could sew.
I never blogged about this, but you may have seen this image in my Flickr photostream:
Note the Orla Kiely dishtowel from Target. First time I sprayed chocolate cake batter on it, I knew this wasn’t going to work.
So after much deliberation, this is what I came up with.
Yep. You’ve seen them all over blogland (because they’re awesome!), and now you’ve seen one here. A dishtowel purse. (Very Sound of Music, don’t you think?) I was inspired by this dress designed by Orla, which felt appropriate. :)
So I’d say Mother’s Day was better than I could have hoped. Lots of mommy-spoiling action from the awesomest people I know.
Thank you, sweet family!
