My Weekend According to My iPhone

Weekends like this are the kind that make me appreciate when I have nothing going on.  Saturday I went non-stop except when I stopped briefly to changes dresses and head to the next event!  I can kind of see now why celebrities get tired of partying.  It's a lot of work to be so glamorous.  And to answer your question, yes, I am still able to fit my big head through the door!

Happy Monday!

I hate gift guides, primarily the ones that come out for Mother's and Father's Days.  Why, you ask? Good question. The easiest answer is because they suck!  90% of the time I look at it and I say to myself, who actually wants this stuff - they're older, but not dead!  And if I see something I like, it's an absurd price point.  I'm not going to spend $200 on a cute scarf and I know my Mom would rather have multiple awesome presents for $200.

I wish I knew why, in such a modern age that magazines and various online publications are sucked into such old cliches.  You know what momma wants?  A bottle of chardonnay and an iPad charger long enough for her to lay in bed with the aforementioned wine and her iPad.  She doesn't want chocolates and my Dad doesn't want some stupid gadget for the grill!

I'm sharing my own personal gift guide for cool moms who drink wine, wear maxi dresses and cute sandals.  It's such late notice so if you're a good daughter like me, you're already prepared for Sunday.  If you're more of a last minute person then.. good luck!

One day is not enough.

To my beautiful mama!

Not that I would know, but I’m sure motherhood is not something you can do all on your own. Many moments contributed to who I am today.  Many spankings, my broken leg, a brush with Roseville PD, more volleyball tournaments than we can remember and a quick life lesson in the importance of never marrying a man who loves sports more than you! I’d like to thank my Mom who overindulged her first daughter, making me special meals for if it weren’t for her I might not be the prima donna, picky eater that I am today.
