My mama is a big fan of fresh fruit, so I stopped at our favorite produce stand, Po’ Folks Produce, just outside of BR on my way home Saturday. I got strawberries and blueberries. (I did eat some of the blueberries on the way – it’s a long drive!) I also got her a card, and told her she was “Berry Awesome.” Not exactly original, but heartfelt. We had fancy dinner at my house with my grandmother on Saturday night. Fancy dinner = nice plates, real glasses, and we all eat at the same time.
Sunday morning, we went to church. On top of celebrating my wonderful mama, I got to see the village of mamas that knew me growing up. They didn’t know I was in town, so it was a nice surprise!
We didn’t actually manage to get a picture of the whole family, or even one of my sister and me with our mom, but she did get some shots of us!
Yes, I am aware that my sister and I don’t look anything alike. If it weren’t for our last name, most people wouldn’t know that we are related. Here’s a “cute” one:
I know I’m not a fashionista or fashion blogger, but I like when other bloggers do this, so here goes:
What we’re wearing: On me: top, H&M; skirt, Vertigo Clothing; belt, borrowed from mom; sandals, Shoe Dept; bangles, gift brought from India. On Olivia: dress, Rue 21.
We went to lunch at Johnny’s Pizza, as Daddy’s treat. Mom’s one request was to go as a family to the movies, so we went to see The Avengers. I’m a big fan of superhero movies, but this one was even better than I expected!
I know my mama was glad to have me home with her this weekend, and I was certainly glad to be here. I hope you got to spend mother’s day with your mom, or someone who mothered you!
