Margarita's and Mom's.

These guys are the reason I'm called Mom.  And I was lucky enough to spend the day with them on Mother's Day.  They make life difficult for me once in while, since they're not perfect children.  I don't know about you, some of you might have perfect children.  But I assure you, these adorable gentleman are not.  I've shed many  tears on their behalf.  I sometimes think I'm a horrible mother when they push me over the edge with their shenanigans.  But, in the end, when the tears have dried, I thank my lucky stars God chose me to be their Mom. Even when they drop (and consequently shatter) a dinner plate at the Mother's Day buffet we went to at a restaurant in River Falls, WI Sunday evening....

This lovely lady is MY mom.  She's as good as they get.  Do you think we look alike?  I love her so much and am so thankful she is still in relatively good health and good spirits.  I am her only daughter, the youngest of four children.  I can only hope I'm as good as her some day!

And finally, here's a card for you.  I was feeling a little margarita-like one day and dug this stamp out of the hardly-ever-used anymore pile of stamps I have collecting in my stamp room.  The paper I used was a piece I got from my friend Lue, and I ADORE it!  It was in a 12x12 pack of paper from K & C I think.  I need to go searching for it online, because I've never been lucky enough to find it in a store.  The margarita stamp and sentiment stamp are both from Amuse.

Well, tonight is a great night for TV watching....IDOL, BIGGEST LOSER, and GLEE!  And it's Taco Tuesday at the Westerman household tonight for dinner, so no big clean-up necessary.  Gotta love that.



  1. i love being a mom to my boy (young man--he's nearly 16), and your photo has inspired me to get a picture of the two of us!

    here's a little funny from my mother's day. i asked my son what he would miss most about me if i weren't around, and he said, "well, the house wouldn't be as clean..." he's deep and emotional, can't you tell? i still would choose him above all the other boys in the world.

  2. I also had a great Mother's Day with my 3 daughters and darling mother. There are no perfect mothers or children, and for as many times as my kids have boiled my blood they have hugged my heart. Most fun of all is watching my Mom just smile her "I told 'ya so" smile. Doris :)
    PS - loved the card too!

  3. That card is so cute.

    I'm so glad to hear that your husband found employment. My hubby lost his job in March due to "corporate downsizing", so I'm starting to feel the pain... But I know if we are patient and have faith, something will turn up. :-)

  4. Your pics are beautiful Amy! Handsome boys...and your mom is beautiful!
