Have you started planning your Mother’s Day celebration yet? We are hosting my mom and grandma at our house this year so I have started dreaming out what I would like to happen. The trick is the execution so how this actually turns out is TBD. 🙂

Mother's Day2I would start with a bright and colorful table of hot pink and orange.

Mother's Day1I would use beautiful place settings like these Tiffany bamboo sterling silver utensils.

Mother's Day3I would have plenty of flowers to soften the table and make the room smell lovely.

Mother's Day4No party is complete without a bar so I would have a Bloody Mary bar…

Mother's Day5…and also a mimosa bar! Because, why not?

Mother's Day6I would serve Eggs Benedict (or some version of it)…

Mother's Day8…and also bacon because no breakfast is complete without it!

Yesterday was a pretty bad day. It had very little to do with seeing OSU’s chance of playing in the National Championship go out the window after losing to Iowa State last night. It had everything to do with getting the news in the morning that once again, we lost members of our orange family to a plane crash. (For the story, please click HERE)

I saw this on Pinterest today and it perfectly explains my love of everything orange. (As does this amazing article HERE) Heaven’s orange got a lot brighter Thursday night. Coach Budke, one of the people on the plane, had an amazing orange blazer he wore. It confirms to me that I need to get the orange velvet blazer from J. Crew and help keep his tradition going!

I hope you feel the same way about your school that I feel about mine – I love my alma mater and am so proud to be a member of this very large, extended family. The way everyone has pulled together is incredible and inspiring during this very sad time. Please hug your families and say a prayer for the families of the four people who died yesterday!

You know how I know I’m getting old? My friends are going through things that I thought we were way too young to experience. Death, infertility, divorce…the list goes on and on. It makes me sad and gives me a heavy heart.

The good news is that I also have friends who have amazing things happening – babies, marriage, job promotions…that list goes on and on as well. Unfortunately, the bad news stays with me longer and as someone who wears her heart on her sleeve, is hard for me to handle. I like happy and fun, not sad and solemn.

I’m going to take a five minute break from the blog and probably most social media so I can regroup and just pause for a moment. Life is going faster than I can blink – it still gets me that its mid-October already! I’ll be gone just a week or so…don’t miss me too much. 🙂

Take a pause and break in your lives sometime soon as well – you never know when those precious people in your lives or precious moments that are happening will be gone and just a memory.

xoxo
