Happy Birthday to my Momma!

Happy Birthday to one special lady: my momma!

Who was a teenage babe.

A beautiful blushing bride.

A loving mother during the early years...

the teenage years...

and was there for me on my big day.

She's a wonderful preschool teacher.

Loves her Gamecocks and tailgating for the games.

She loves her family with all her heart, and it shows in all that she does.

Of all of her "jobs", grandma (Ra Ra) fits her best.

To celebrate this wonderful lady's day of birth, she and I got pedicures for our beach vacay in our signature color...
O.P.I's My Chihuahua Bites

As weird as it sounds, this nail polish has sentimental value to it. It was her late best friend's favorite, Mrs. Marilyn. Mrs. Marilyn was like a second mom to me, and her daughter, Kelly, was like my sister. When Mrs. Marilyn died, we were all in such shock, and we still haven't quite gotten over it. It's kind of become a tradition for us to get our nails done in this color every summer.
Kelly, Mrs. Marilyn, mom, and me.

Mom's birthday celebration continues tonight with margaritas at Taco Boy!
