Mom + Kelley= happiness. It's true.
My mom and her boyfriend came down from New Jersey to visit Rion and I for Easter. Let me tell you, this girl is just the luckiest girl there ever was. My mom let out that she had a surprise for me, which is totally torture to know about a surprise ahead of time. Of course I reverted to nagging her ear off, but she willfully withheld. Props to mom. Well, she arrived and handed this little package over to me (ignore the name on the package- long story).
Remember that little Etsy post I did awhile ago? Yes folks, my mom is cool enough to have found that dress and ordered it for me! Did I mention that I am the luckiest girl in all the land? It's not only the fact that I was sincerely drooling over this dress at a distance (a financial distance), and so I'm elated to own it. It's also the fact that my mom went out of her way to- 1. read my blog 2. find the dress that I liked and 3. order it for me and bring it to me. Such a thoughtful gift!
Of course, the dress is only the minor excitement in the overall excitement of getting to see my mom. It could only have been better if my brother was able to be here. I'm lucky enough to have an amazing family that I love to be around!
Our first night together was a total success which included: scrumptious pizza and garlic rolls, delicious hand-crafted beer, bonfires, and good conversation.
Life is good my friends!
