mommy & me day

on a whim a couple of months ago we redid the decor in the girls' rooms in hopes of them keeping their rooms cleaner... i have to admit that i didn't really have high hopes for this process. being an inherent mess myself, i figured it would last about as long as it does for me... which is usually right up until i use the space again. lol. anyway, much to my surprise, they've kept their rooms very clean. and emma's even made her bed everyday since! so in celebration of this momentous accomplishment, we went out antiquing to find a little decor reward for her room. (torrey decided to hang with daddy and do yard work.)

she had a bunch of cool stuff in the running... an old bulb style perfume bottle, a decorative bird cage, a pedestal with a glass dome, a turquoise diamond-style paper weight, a frilly pink apron (this girl's got style!). but in the end she went with a fancy vintage barbie dress and cape set. after all of that hard shopping we snapped some pictures, then ran a couple more errands. just a fun hang out sort of day. makes me miss our thursday date days of years past... i love being a mom!

and to all of the mom's out there that give and give up so much for the love of the dear ones in their lives... this little laugh is for you! happy mother's day!
