Happy Birthday Mama!

Today is my sweet mama's birthday, she's 21. waaahhoooo! haha, okay not really. but i'm her favorite daughter so i would never spill the beans on her age!

if you know my mom, you know she's more talented than HGTV + martha stewart ComBiNed!!!! she can pretty much to anything, and usually while making it look like she's done it for years. she throws awesome birthday parties. she decorates the coolest of cool bedrooms (my brother and i totally had the most outrageous rooms growing up). she works HARD. and she is super fun. she's the total package, and quite the supermom if i may say so myself.

mama always finds a way to surprise us with gifts or treats, she is so thoughtful. she goes above and beyond in everything she does. she made our home a place that everyone always wanted to be. and she has been so supportive of me becoming my own person and starting our own life and family... she is always on board with decisions husband and i make for ourselves, even if it means us moving 5 hours away. she reminds me that i'm tough and capable when i feel weak and helpless. and she reminds me to be humble and sweet when that attitude of mine rears its ugly head. she creates amazing traditions that make time together so much more meaningful and fun. basically, she rocks.

and, did i mention that she is just as cute as she can be? see...
