Happy Birthday Mom!

Today's post is dedicated to a very special lady, without whom I would not be here, my mom.  Today is my mom's birthday and I wanted to share with you some pearls of wisdom that have helped me through life and that I always lean on.  (ps- we had just made my mom laugh really hard before this picture was taken)

It is okay to cry.
Popcorn is a perfectly acceptable dinner.
Read the directions (in regards to sewing, homework, cooking)
The proper time to reheat anything in the microwave is 2 minutes.
Sometimes, you just have to say "shit".
The proper end to a bad day, mexican food.
The proper end to a good day, mexican food.
When you are sad, don't stress there is always mexican food (and shopping).
Sometimes we get really sad, but you have to just "suck it up, girlfriend".



  1. I applaud the use of Mexican food to deal with one's emotions. It is a practice I have believed in for some time. Happy birthday Alyson's mom!
