In the Pink

My daughter is wonderful.

As many of you have managed to guess, I'm into the pink. It's starting to really take over, too. Why ask why, right?

So, I asked for a variety of things for Mother's Day, because the hubs has trained me into providing a list. Without a list, the man is helpless to shop for his beloved (me, in case you weren't sure) and would come home with the collected works of The Three Stooges if left to his own devices. With a list he did a fine job, presents-wise.

My daughter, however, is possessed of much more shopping savvy. It helps that she's a girl, I'm sure, but she just knows how to actually look at something and go, "My mother would love/hate this." She resists the list. I give it to her and she ignores it. Because she knows she can find something not on the list that will be a total, happy surprise.

This year was no exception. I'm proudly wearing a beautiful heart pendant that says "Mom" on it that has...wait for it...three pink sapphire hearts in it. (Pink!) And she saved up and bought it with her own money, too. (Bonus!)

Of course, I have no other pink jewelry. I know! Unbelievable! I'm feeling confident, however, that come my anniversary and the Holidays, that will be rectified.

By my daughter, of course. I expect the hubs to still need a list. And jewelry doesn't belong on a list. As my daughter knows, it's better when it's a surprise.

I got a card, albeit a nice card. I don't do lists. No men in my life. My late husband always relied on flowers for all occasions. Roses. Red. But I did get a card this year. :D

A card is nice! It's the thought and all that. Oh, sure, that's not what I say to MY family and all, but it's still true. :-D

Ahh, but those of us in the know understand that the DD is really a "minime". Hugs to you all! :D PS - I got a rawk!
