A Day in the Life Too... a blog about modest style

A 30-something mom's blog about modest style, DIY stuff, and limiting dessert. Just kidding. We eat dessert first around here.

Happy Mothers Day! For today's photo shoot, and as part of her celebratory contribution, my 5-year-old wanted to decide on the poses and have me copy them for each shot. She tried to trick me and would switch it up at the last second. A delightful and entertaining time, even if the photos themselves didn't turn out the best (it's super dark and grey outside, so the lighting is...how shall I say...crappy in my house).

This week I'm grateful for:

- lindor chocolate truffles.
- and, on a related note, Mothers Day. Specifically for the kidlets that make the celebration personal for me. And for my own mama.
- rocking chairs.
- weeks when kids aren't sick.
- the magic of a pinata and the joy in the eyes of every kid reaping its pummel-induced bounty.
- the public library.
- my husband. He is a fabulous component of humankind.
- wearing a tank top on my jog!!! (translation: it was warm enough this week. finally!)
- references to King of Queens. That show = hilar.
- talking girl-talk over delicious cake with 2 of my closest girlfriends for "20 minutes." An hour (and a half?) later...
- non-nasty toothpaste.
- books. A glorious stack of endless books that bespeaks giddiness when I get a chance to read them.

Happy Sunday!
