Mother's Day Demands, Take Two

I only have myself to blame.  When I posted what I want for Mother's Day on my blog, I some how managed to forget that my husband doesn't read my blog.  And wouldn't you know it: the Kate Spade purse is now sold out. (I would like to think that my blog is so well read and my opinion is so revered that it sold out simply because of my recommendation.  A girl can dream.)

So, I am left to come up with some alternate suggestions.  If I must.  Here goes:

There are some things I never spend money on.  Work out clothes, for example.  I work out 5 days a week.  You'd think I realize that these are worth investing in.  Nope.  I've worn the same old, worn out, unattractive work out clothes for the last 3 years.  And I have to wash them a lot.

They have some great work out tops at Old Navy.  (The red color is "Eternal Flame" which is a really dumb name for a color.)

While we are talking about Old Navy: they actually have some cute stuff right now.  It's been awhile.

I realize now that if I purchase all these, I will look like an American flag all summer.  I think I can live with that.

Back to work out clothes.  I need some more shorts.  Why are all running shorts booty shorts?  Why do the powers that be in the athletic clothing industry think that we want to wear super-short shorts while exercising?  We don't.  We'd like our wiggly bits and soft spots to remain undercover, thank you very much. I'd like running shorts with an inseam please.  Like these, for example, found at Dick's Sporting Goods.

Something else I'm not particularly good at spending money on? Hair products, the nice ones.  I splurge every now and again but rarely buy fancy hair stuff.  So I'd like this please.  I used it years ago and it was awesome.

Something I am good at spending money on? Anthropologie clothes.  Sure, I shop their sales and rarely pay full price, but I never seem to mind pulling the trigger on a cute clothing purchase.  Either way, I wouldn't be disappointed at all if this made it's way to me this Mother's Day.

Sometimes I have a hard time coming up with non-clothing items on a wish list.  Today, you are in luck.  I found something so me that I would love for my house.  This sign is available at Pottery Barn.  I grew up in a small little town named Arlington, which means I should probably own this.

I hate to get cheesy while I'm trying to pretend to be serious about demanding things for Mother's Day (who does that really?)  But in truth, the only thing I really want for Mother's Day is a lovely day spent with these guys:

 And maybe one of these:

And a nap.

This is so funny! I just got back from Mother's day shopping for myself...looking for work out clothes! After 3 stores I only found 1 top at TJMAXX but I did pick up a cute dress too.
Trudy's perfect chocolate cake has also been on my mind. Farmer's Market is open again, perhaps we should go. :)

Happy Mommy day to you! Hope you get something fabulous from your crew! I too never spend money on workout gear but I finally ponied up some cash for a few tanks, pants and jacket from Gap last month and I love them all! It's fun feeling like you look cute when you head to the gym...who would have thought? =)
