10 (Not So Mainstream) Reasons Why I Love My Mom!

Sunday, May 12, 2013

First off, Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there! I hope you have a marvelous day and get pampered by your children and don't have to cook any meals or wash any dishes today! To start of this lovely Sunday, I decided I wanted to do a little blog post dedicated to the leading lady in my life. So, without further ado, I give you my mother and 10 reasons why I love her.

1. She waves to every person that passes her when we go out walking. Literally. Old Southern habits die hard!

She's a cookie monster. Forget adding variety to your life, if she had to eat one thing for the
rest of her life, it would be the cookies.

3. She walks 2 or more miles with me every night. Rain or shine. We gossip, laugh, have serious conversations, and talk about anything and everything.

4. She reads me stories. I've been sick lately, so she's stayed up late reading me books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. She reads until she doesn't have a voice anymore. Who needs a Kindle or Nook?

5. She had a folder on our computer called 'Karen' (that's her name!) that has pictures of Biggest Loser contestants, Barack Obama, and Taylor Swift in it. There are just so many unanswered questions in my head right now. This is why my Mom is the coolest.

Here is a screenshot of her special folder!

6. She cries a lot. Whether it's the Star Trek movie, Dumbledore dying or Extreme Makeover  Home Edition, she gets really sentimental. We've nicknamed her 'Niagra Falls' at my house.

7. She comes to every single sporting event that my brother and I have. How many parents do that? She's seen hundreds of basketball and baseball games. She even roughed out cross country meets!

8. My Mom has the funniest/weirdest quotes. I made her her own Twitter Quote page to document her shining moments. Here's a little preview of what she says. No, I don't make these up. This is all her.

9. She uses modern phrases such as 'YOLO' 'Swag' and 'Oh Snap!'. Usually she's joking. Except when she says 'Oh Snap!' I don't think that one is a joke anymore.

10. She loves using emojis. She swore up and down that an iPhone was never for her, but now she's addicted to texting and emojis. She also snapchats. A lot. 

I could go on for hours listing things I love about my Mom, but it was so much fun picking 10 reasons that I never really acknowledge! I'm off to go pamper her on this wonderful Sunday morning! There's is only one word to describe how I am feeling today:
