I Feel Pretty | On Mother’s Day

I Feel Pretty | On Mother’s Day

Do you know the #1 thing that moms REALLY want for Mother’s Day?  According to this article, it’s pretty simple.  We just want a day off!

Can I get an amen?

I couldn’t agree more.  Don’t bother with gifts, I just want an entire day to relax with my whole family without any household chores weighing me down.

Oh and I also want to spend time together as a family.  As the kids get older and we are all pulled in different directions, we don’t get nearly enough family time.  So, listen up family, here’s how I want my Mother’s Day to go down.  🙂

My Perfect Mother’s Day

  • Sleep in until 8:00 a.m.
  • Have coffee on the patio with my hubby.
  • Get dressed in a cute, comfy outfit.
  • Go to church.
  • Have a nice brunch on the patio of my favorite Mexican restaurant with ALL THREE kids present
  • Take the dog for a walk or go on a family bike ride.
  • Grill out that evening and have dinner on the patio (clearly I like patios!)
  • Relax the rest of the evening and NOT worry about laundry, lunches or backpacks for the week ahead!

Ahh, perfection!

I want my outfit for Mother’s Day to be as easy as the day I have planned so it will be this combo of a comfortable maxi dress, denim jacket and sandals.  This is one of my favorite easy outfit formulas.  The mint and navy Aztec print maxi from Cavender’s is perfect for topping with a denim jacket and pairing with metallic sandals.
