Birthday Mama

not only did we celebrate cade's birthday over the weekend...
but, my hip mom turned another year older, as well.

her big day was sunday.
we celebrated with a fabulous {as always} dinner prepared by mr. c.
{she specifically requested his filet mignon and shrimp.}
i put in my two cents by preparing a chocolate cream pie.
it was a perfect way to celebrate the day of a fabulous woman.
{how cool is she?  are you seeing the fab shoes peeking out from the hems of her pants?}

the other day i was thinking how lucky i am.
{in so many ways.}
grant it...i give myself some of the credit for that luck.
i make good decisions...and pretty much have for most of my life.
{a few hiccups here and there...but, those make me stronger.  right?}
i'm lucky i was born to an amazing woman.
a mom who has always been there for me.
supported me.
believed in me.
taught me how to make good decisions.
taught me the importance of education.
and the importance of a glue gun.
taught me to be my own person.
and to fight for what i believe in.
she made sure i was responsible and accountable for my actions.
and showed me how to be a good mom.

she has done all of this and more...
and still manages to be somewhat of a fashion icon!

happy birthday mom.
i love you.
