Motherly advice

In the interest of keeping it real - this post was composed about a month ago. I just never hit "publish".

This afternoon my mother put herself further down the "people I'll go to for advice" ladder.

Don't forget this is the same woman who uttered the words "cookies on the oven burner? just leave it there and it will bake right off. don't worry about it" right before my oven burst into flames.

I wore a pair of cords to church Sunday because I knew that we were going out afterwad and I didn't want to be uncomfortable.

I wore them all day not knowing that anything was wrong.

Today I realized - as i walked into the building and my ankles were cold - that these pants have become high waters.

I called her to see why she didn't tell me. "I thought they looked cute."

Cropped cords? This isn't Florida!


  1. Oh no! Maybe Mom thought they were capris?

  2. Haha, that is GREAT! Maybe you should crop them just a bit more so you can have those sleek audrey hepburn pants-thing goin' on!

  3. So funny! Moms just love their daughters so much and don't want to burst the bubble. :)

    I wanted to say thanks for stopping by my blog last week and commenting on the scalloped punch craft challenge I'm holding. I would love for you to join us if you'd like! I added a few more ideas to get everyone's creative juices going.

    Have a blessed day!

  4. Oh that's too funny. Moms are so weird with what they get right and what they get wrong.


what up yo?
