I got it from my mama.

Truth is, I just love to shop.
For anything really...
Sometimes it doesn't even involve buying things or spending money.
There are times when I'm just happy browsing.

Here's how I see it, everyone has got something that takes their mind off of things and just makes them feel happy. For some, maybe it's working out, or reading a book, or even baking. For others, it could be crafting, or organizing, or possibly curling up on the couch with a pint of Ben & Jerry's.

Whatever it is, we all have something that takes us to our happy place, am I right?
For me, that happens to be shopping!
And that is definitely something I got from my Mom.

I'm still at a point where I'm deciding/struggling with figuring out how much of my life I want to share on here. What I don't mind sharing is just how important my Mom is to me. She's my rock. My best friend. My partner in crime. My confidant. My biggest supporter. My role model. You get the point.

In my About Me section, I mention being my Mom's chemo buddy. At some point, I think I'll be comfortable sharing more about her battle, but for now we'll keep it at that. She has been through so much in the past few years, more than most people have to handle in their lifetime. My mom is a warrior. The strongest woman I know. She has taught me never to give up, no matter what life throws at you. And she usually does it with the most beautiful smile on her face. The greatest compliment that I've ever received it that I'm just like her.

So yeah, I hit the Mom jackpot.
And there's not a day that goes by that I'm not thankful for that.

With Mother's Day this weekend, you bet your bottom dollar I'll be spending it with the #1 lady in my life, celebrating her & indulging in our favorite past-time, shopping :-)

So in the spirit of my weekend plans,
I'll leave you with something I've currently got my eye on! Add it to my "lust list"!

Totally loving on these Kate Spade totes!

Happy Mother's Day to all the momma bears out there!
I wonder if Stella got me a gift?

Have a lovely weekend!

    Shopping is my therapy too. Sometimes, it can be a bad thing, but at least it cheers me up. :)

  4. Love this post about your mom. She sounds like a wonderful lady. :)

    Shopping is the best therapy and I'm definitely addicted to it, but I suck at dressing myself. It doesn't make sense! Those totes are BEAUTIES!
