How was everyone's weekend?? Did you get to celebrate a special woman in your life for Mother's Day? Were you the one who was celebrated?? Both? 

Saturday I was feeling yucky so I lounged and really slept most of the day, which is highly uncharacteristic of me. My body doesn't typically sleep much but I literally couldn't stay awake! Crazy! Anyway, I woke early evening to a call from my dear mother. She said "the boys," meaning my dad and brothers went out to watch The Fight {boxing}, and wanted to know if I wanted to have a ladies' dinner date. Yes, please!

So she picked me up from my place and we headed to 23rd st. It's a street in Downtown Portland, lined with cute coffee shops, boutiques and fine dining. We went to an old favorite of ours, Papa Haydn, a restaurant famous for their fancy, decadent desserts. There was a wait, so we got on the list and headed down the way for some window shopping. Of course when we saw Free People, we headed right through the door with many ooohhhh's and aaahhhh's over seemingly every item in there! But when we stumbled upon this dress {in stone color} we both freaked out!! It's so pretty! My mom grabbed my size and rushed me off to the dressing room since we needed to head back for our table. I tried it on and it fit perfectly!! Mom took it right to the register while I changed back into my clothes. Knowing it was NOT in my budget, my sweet mother tells me she's paying for it. I remind her that on Mother's Day weekend I should be buying her a dress. She simply responded with, "Krystle, I have been blessed with such amazing children and it blesses me to bless you and care for you." Um, is my mom precious or what?? We have  a wedding to go to next weekend, so looks like I found my dress!! On me, it's longer than it is on the model in the photos... I have a couple of styling ideas. Maybe I will do a little vote here! Sound like fun?? If you haven't been into Free People lately, definitely stop in! And prepare to spend!! Thanks, Mama!!

After this, we got to the restaurant just in time for our table. We enjoyed yummy food and rich, delicious dessert over candlelight. We got to just catch up and talk about life. I really value those one-on-one times with her. We have a great time together!

Today was a family day of celebrating Mom. I loved it!

How was your weekend?

  4. Your mom is very sweet! You look so cute too, great post!

  5. Sounds like a fabulous evening! I love that dress! My mom likes to buy me things, too, but my parent's financial situation hasn't been great in the last few years (my dad was laid off for a while), so I try my best to prevent her from spending money on me. I think parents (and moms especially) will always want to take care of their kids no matter how old they are! :)

  6. This is so cute. I like your mom. :) She is nice.

  7. love the outfit. your shoes. they're awesome.
