Wednesdays With My Mom

I'm a little behind on things because we went to Missouri last week. It was SUCH a great trip. I will probably post about that next.
Another photo taken by my dad of his "Miss America". : ) This is what Photo Booth pictures use to look like "back in the day".

First on the agenda...shorten the sleeves on this jacket for my mom. She usually has to do this to all her jackets. My oldest daughter needs all hers lengthened. Go figure??
Next, we went over to the Mall on an errand for my Sara. My mom was fascinated by this skull covered in turquoise.
On to the pet store, just because I knew my mom would LOVE it.
I WAS RIGHT. : )
If you could see my mom's closet you would see that it is full of Fall colors and tons of Black & White. So classic! You can see the things that caught her eye.



When I saw these shoes, I said, "Aw come on Mom, you know you want 'em." I got a chuckle out of that. : )
Next, we bought ourselves some big M & M cookies and sat down by the Children's Play Area. My mom loves to watch and admire little children. She was most taken by the little guy below.
Who wouldn't be? Little Cutie-Pa-Tootie!!!

Beautiful Mom you have. Both now and in her youth.

I was so disappointed when our mall pet store closed. I mean, that was the best part of the mall visit. . . after the giant M & M cookies :)

Blessings,

Sher

Your mom is so beautiful - and so sylish with her black and white!

I love the old photo booth picture, too. It warms my heart to think of your dad calling her his "Miss America". :)

I love that you spend every Wednesday with your mom!! What fun memories you are building. I also get a kick out of the old pictures that you often post of her.

Did she buy the shoes? ;)

Your mom has such great taste in clothing. I didn't realize they had those picture booths back then. What a cute couple your parents make. :-)
