Weekend Update

The older I get, the more I realize how important Mother's Day is. I am blessed to have a mom that respects me, understands me, and most of all she loves me unconditionally. She has seen all my flaws and still calls me her baby girl. Another really cool feeling? She loves my husband. That brings me a lot of joy. Not every family has that kind of love, so I am especially grateful.
1. Momma and me at Lupe Tortilla. Husband and I took her and my little brother out to eat in honor of Mother's Day. And of course we selected Mexican food, our favorite. After we ate some lunch, we went shopping at The Domain. We had a lot of fun spending the day together.
2. My momma and my babies. She calls them her grandbabies, and she's right! Those little princesses are spoiled rotten, just like her future grandkids are gonna be. 
3. We took the princesses to the vet for a check up. Layla got spayed last week so we figured we'd take them in to make sure all else was good. I had to snap this sweet photo of husband and the pups.
4. The sweetest gift in all the land. It was the perfect Mother's Day prezzie. It had a paw print from each of my babies! Layla and Zoey really know the way to my heart.

On another note, I signed up to receive a monthly glam bag from Ipsy. I can't wait to get it in and give y'all my reviews. It's very similar to other monthly subscriptions, such as Birchbox, but I felt like Ipsy was more my style. There are tons of options out there, so if you're signed up too let me know your favorite monthly subscriptions!

Lastly, I won this awesome hand stamped key chain from Jen's blog! The keychain is customized by Stamped By Twin Giraffe. Her etsy shop can be found here. I love my keychain SO very much! It includes my wedding anniversary on it along with a quote that husband and I say a lot. Growing up, my stepdad always told my momma, "You're the greatest, baby!" And it just kind of stuck. Ever since Ross and I started dating, I've been telling him that he's the greatest. So it's definitely a phrase used a lot in the Skinner household. 
Happy Monday friends!


  1. LOVE your mother's day present... that is so sweet! Your fur babies definitely love you! And you look JUST like your mom!! Happy Monday friend! xoxo

  2. I hope you like Ipsy! So far everyone I've talked to likes it much better than Birchbox.

  3. LOVE your furmama gift from your babies, so cute! And I really love that key chain, adorable!

  4. Very cute keychain- I love that! And I feel just like you do about my momma and I's relationship-- just appreciate it more and more as years go on. She put up with a lot of my craziness and yet is still so proud of me :)

  5. Lupe Tortilla - yum!! I love the key chain!

  6. I never totally understood how amazing my mom was until I became a mom. That sounds kind of awful I guess, but I just fully understand the sacrifice she made to bring me into this world, all the sleepless nights, and the undying love she has for me. Because of course I experience all of that with my daughter now :)
    LOVE your mothers day gift!

  7. You & your mom are so pretty! :) & I'm glad she loves your husband! My mom loves Darren & it makes me so so happy. You're right, not everyone has that! & I loooove the fur baby gift you got! so precious! I get glam bag too! It's way better than birchbox :)

  8. LOVE the mother's day present, so cute! & congrats on your win, how cute!
