Coolest Mother's Day present ever!!!

ETA: I just re-read this and it is quite obvious that I am "out of practice" with my blogging. Normally, I would edit and re-write the mess, but I don't have time today and I don't want to delete it. So, please don't hold my run-on sentences against me and feel free to add commas, in your head, where needed. I was actually quite amused with myself when I was writing it, but I can definitely see that when reading, it is kind of goofy.

Don't you love this?!?!?!


The truth be told, my sister discovered this treasure. I saw her's hanging on her wall last month and had to have it! I usually feel a little guilty "stealing" something original that someone else has, but this was just too cool I just *had* to have this...and mine wouldn't be exactly the same as hers of course....mine wouldn't say "Liam, Aidan & Connor". :) So, I explained to her that any annoyance that she would feel about having to share her cool find with me surely couldn't measure up to the happiness that I would have by having one for myself.


So, she agreed and was nice enough to give me the name of the shop. Well, at least she gave me what she thought was the name of the shop, or at the very least, she gave me some words that could have been the name of a shop that would sell that sort of thing and hope that I got the hint...hmmm....whatever, I couldn't find it on line. I figured that I would revisit the issue another time.


So, imagine my surprise when I opened the present from my awesome boys and found it!! Yay!!! My totally awesome sister passed along all of the info to Spencer and he took care of it. Yay me...what a score!!! I'm a lucky mom...and wife... and sister too.

Glad you still like it :-). And for the record, I really didn't know the name of the store when you asked. A month later before giving Spencer all the info, I literally had to drive around downtown to try to find the little boutique. Yep, I'm a dork and still don't have my memory back!

That is a totally cool gift! Maybe you shouldn't have put it on blogger as everyone will want one!

I'm still waiting for my Mother's day gift Mike didn't get me anything from the boys this year:(

He did mention getting me some new headphones though
