Flowers, breakfast in bed are nice, but fashion is forever

As you read this, do you smell burnt toast wafting from the kitchen? Can you hear the clanging of 40 (or so) pots and pans being thrown into the sink (heaven forbid loaded into the dishwasher a mere five paces to the right)? Are the children screaming over who gets to carry the scalding hot coffee up to your bedside?
Is a trip to the ER in your future?
Well…take five minutes for yourself before the chaos and lock the door. (No, I am not going to be quoting passages from 50 Shades of Grey)
Let’s pause for a moment and reflect on all of the gifts that we COULD have on this most glorious of mornings…
Lucky for you, I had the pleasure of wandering through Ellie Boutique in Greenville, Del. the other day and took pictures of things that made me happy.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
Notice how I only included shots of the outfits themselves?
Here is my Mother’s Day gift idea to you.
Print the pictures off. Attach a photo of your head ONTO the outfit and leave it (ever so subtly) on the kitchen counter. Perhaps, someone will wise up to the fact that, while we ADORE getting the decoupage picture frame, the half-dead potted pansy or the necklace made out of Cheerios…we would love something from Ellie TOO!
Now, I know that material things can NEVER replace the joy in our hearts that comes from having children.
But, it sure does come close!
(Mommy loves you, my boys)
Happy Mother’s Day, gals!
May the day be all you have dreamed of and more…
