The week has started once again. It seemed to me that this weekend just flew right by.
I hope you all had a fun weekend with your mom. Today I was reading such a heartbreaking story of how an instagram post touched many people. Since it was Mother’s day weekend Mindy Kaling decided to post a photo on instagram to wish everyone a Happy Mother’s day. But she also wanted to take a moment and comfort anyone who is missing their Mom. Many people shared how much they miss the smallest things their mom use to do. It was so heartbreaking hearing newly mom’s wish that their Mom could meet their first child.
It made me realize how important each day is and that we have to remember to remind people how much they mean to us. If you have time and a box of tissue I recommend you read some of the stories. Be warned though because you will seriously need those tissues.
As for my Mom’s Mother’s day, my boyfriend and I went to a family gathering. We usually celebrate Mother’s day with all the mom’s on Saturday. So I got to see a bunch of Aunts, cousins, etc..
I decided to be crazy and make my mom her gift. My mom loves Wonder Woman. She especially loves watching all the old seasons of Wonder Woman. Something you don’t know is that I consider my mom to be Wonder Woman. She has always managed to do the impossible and is always sacrificing herself for others. So I made her a Wonder Woman piñata from scratch. It was definitely a challenge for me especially because I knew nothing about piñatas. My boss and I would brain storm how I could make this work. Everything was going good until I realized that I was running out of time. Because I am only human I procrastinated and literally didn’t finish it until 2:00 PM on Saturday. I was already late to the party and still had to take a shower.
But since I have such an amazing boyfriend he decided to play arts and crafts with me. He is the best illustrator I know, so I assigned him to draw out her outfit. If he never stepped in and helped me I would have never finished. Not going to lie I was like five seconds from having a meltdown and since my bf heard it in my tone he became my little helper.
So here it is! Isn’t it too cute!!! I am so proud that I figured it out and that it actually looked like the lego version of her. If you want me to make a post about how I made her just comment and like below. Feel free to share with your friends.
