If you haven’t heard by now, my foot surgery that was supposed to happen last week was cancelled at the last minute.  Talk about anticlimactic.  I trust God’s timing and am happy it has been rescheduled soon but in the meantime, I’m not laid up in bed after all!  I have two more weeks for heels!  YAYYYYYY!  I took advantage of this unexpected situation to wear a pretty new dress for Mother’s Day…

I scored this perfectly fitting dress last Friday for $7.50  at the 50% off sale at Salvation Army Thrift Store!  With my $11 boho-vibe leather sandals and handcrafted-with-love Mother’s Day accessories!

Shrinky dink Jesus-on-the-cross necklace.
I could swear my sons collaborated to make turquoise pieces!
Did I iron this dress before wearing?  Heck no.  I believe in low achievable standards.

Besides the fab jewelry and some therapeutic thrifting, my Mother’s Day had plenty of lovely moments…

I admit I took the dress off before the brisket and baked beans came out!

This white dress was pretty while it lasted!
I’m brave but not that brave!

Hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day too!

Snuggling my blessings!
Counting my blessings before bed!

    Love your attitude, giving God the credit for the timing of things in this life!  And love the picture of your three beautiful children with you for a Mother’s Day picture.  Children a truly a blessing from the Lord!  Your white dress and jean jacket are beautiful together!  Glad you had such a blessed Mother’s Day!
