Mother's Day Gift Guide

I have been listening to Disney Radio in the mornings with the kids (and after they get out of the car for school because I always forget to change the station) and they have been discussing "What Mom's REALLY want for Mother's Day".  Some of the calls were funny, some made me add to my list, and others were just people who seemed to be clueless as to what Mom's REALLY want!

My take on Mother's Day is that.....I don't to clean ANYTHING, I don't want to cook ANYTHING, I don't want to hear complaining from ANYONE, and I want to just relax on the beach with my family and enjoy a nice, quiet, peaceful day! I LOVE opening anything that my kids have made for me, I LOVE reading the cards that my husband writes out (we don't ever buy each other cards.....we literally draw funny pics and write our own message), and then I love hearing my kids giggle as they try to surprise me with a gift. (my kids are AWFUL at secrets)

I put together a little gift guide, which is really just things that I am loving right now, and I think they all have the nice, peaceful, calming vibe that I am dreaming out for Mother's Day!

I LOVE this hammock! I have had a hammock chair on my patio for several years, and it is BY FAR my favorite seat in the house!  I don't have large trees in my yard, and I don't want a bulky hammock stand in my yard, so I am going to have to get creative on how to hang one! I think this style is so pretty that it will add so much life to an otherwise boring backyard.

I have said it a million times, but I am AWFUL at remembering to water plants! I just don't do it! Occasionally my kids will have leftover water in their sports water bottles and I will walk around the house feeding my dying plants....but other than that, I am AWFUL at it!  I feel like these hanging plants are SO stinking cute, that I might actually water the plants in them! AND if I put in some succulents, I would only have to remember to water them once a week, so this might work out!  Either way, I just feel like most mom's love flowers.....and they love them even more when they are in pretty pots! 

I posted a picture of this scent of candle from Target on Instagram (@kcsnead) and I have to say that it smells EXACTLY like Anthropologie Candles....maybe slightly better! They have several other "smells" that I am loving right now, I think the Sangria is my second favorite! YUM!

Target is killing it right now with their selection of weekender bags! I LOVE this fish bag, and coming in at a close second is this embroidered bag.  I think weekenders are a great size for moms because they allow you to shove everything you will need for a weekend away, or just a day out and about with the kids and leaving it in the car as a "just in case" bag.  The BEST news is that they are bogo 50% off.

My FAVORITE gift idea just happens to be a little something I gifted to myself a while back. I LOVE these mini planters (I purchased the small)!  

And my heart kind of skipped a beat a little bit when I clicked on it and saw that MY picture is being featured on Anthropologie's site! I think it makes me love these little fish even more!

I am totally looking forward to this Sunday, and I can't wait to celebrate my mom, mother in law, and all the other mom's out there......FROM THE BASEBALL FIELD!  My perfect beach day dreams are kind of shot because I will be busy being a baseball mom!  I have made sure that my family gives me a "redo" day, so I am going to soak it all up for two days! 

I hope all of you Mom's, women who feel like Mom's to others, Auntie's, and just women in general.....HAVE AN AMAZING WEEKEND!
