My mom's better than your mom...

When you invite your mom to visit you for a few days, do you pamper her with chocolates on her pillow? Do you wake up earlier than her and have a fresh pot of coffee waiting for her? Do you make her do this?

What about this? Remember this problem? Yeah, well, I never got caught up.
She was here for 6 days, and I made sure she worked every second of it! She did my laundry, she put my kids to bed every night, and she took them to school in the morning. WHO DOES THAT????? My beautiful mom, ladies. That's who.
This leads into something else we did while she was here. We set up her blog. So, without further adieu...drum roll please....drum roll...anybody? Okay fine. Go to Revel in Romance and take a peek. Isn't that a great name?
I didn't want to use any pictures from her post, but I thought I'd show you this lamp transformation of hers. We went to Hobby Lobby (where else?) and bought this be-u-tiful beaded trim. She hot glued it on there, and what a gorgeous new lamp she has! PLEASE go see her! She's nervous about the whole blog thing, and I know you ladies are the BEST at making people feel good about themselves!

"Posted 2 minutes ago" and I'm alreadying making a comment, does that qualify as stalking? LOL. Really though it's just good timing. ANYWAYS...I'm wondering when's the last time you did laundry. Lordy girly! Yeah Mom!

Mindy said...

*already. I hate not having spell check on the comment thingy.

AJ said...

Wow. What a wonderful help your mom was.

I love the long beaded fringe that she put on her lamp shade. Looks fantastic.

Your mom is awesome!!! My mom does the same thing when she visits my house. SHe's always keeping busy. And I feel your laundry pain. With 7 people in this house my laundry tumor grows everyday. In fact I have about 4 loads that need folding and I'm blogging. I hate laundry.

I'm going to have to challenge you on this one. My mom is still here and I have been working her to the bone. I'm getting ready to post all of the great projects we(she)have (has) completed.

Hooray for moms!

The Berry's Patch said...

Can I borrow her? I have about 10 beautiful loads of laundry to do. She's welcome to tackle them. :-)

Your mom ROCKS! You lucky gal, you (my mom's a bit of a rock star, too, so I speak from experience. ;-)

Saucy said...

My mother would totally do that for me. In fact, she has and she does. We are lucky girls.

Lynette said...

Just got back from visiting your mom's blog - its great!! With only 2 of us in the house now with DD away at school (sniff, sniff) my mom doesn't have to fold our laundry, oh no, she's got your mom beat on that one!! She lives next door to us (a blessing and a curse at the same time)!! You know what MY mom did when she came to help DD finish packing for college, because I didn't do a good enough job? She cleaned out the INSIDE of my washing machine!! I'm not kidding - the tub thing, where you put fabric softner, that baby looked brand new!! And, she would never have her own blog - she thinks I'm nuts for putting my pic out there for the whole world to see and THEN complains that my pic is to "grainy and hard to see!!" What? OK, I'm done now, back to you. Your blog is great and so is your mom's - I'll be checking back often.
