Outfit and Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to my mom and all of the other mom's out there. Today for Mother's Day I went to church with my mom and had the opportunity to sport my skirt that I made, seen here. Good news people---the dress did not fall apart, split at the seams, or any other traumatic event I was imagining in my paranoid mind. This is only the second thing I have ever made so I was a little nervous. I did a more casual look with sandals and a top but this easily could be dressed up.

Top: Banana Republic
Skirt: DIY
Sandals: Steve Madden

In honor of Mother's Day, I thought I would send a shout out to all of the wonderful Moms out there. You all definitely deserve a day. I know my Mom has put up with my antics far too long but she does it so well (and I think she enjoys it, shhh!). The last few years have definitely brought my Mom and I closer together. I love you Mom!!!

My mom and I @ my wedding in 2006

My husband and I have been together since 1997 so you can imagine that our families have meshed together and his mom is like a mother to me as well. I'm just blessed like that ;-) Happy Mother's Day Patricia!!

I'm cooking dinner for my mom tonight and enjoying her company. I hope all of you are enjoying the day with loved ones as well.
