Kate Spade for Mother’s Day

I absolutely love Kate Spade products! They usually have a bit of a whimsical, fun aspect to them. I recently received this purse in the mail from Kate Spade in flamingo pink. Even the name of the color is fun! Why have regular pink when you can have flamingo pink, right? I love the style. The inside of this bag is super cute with a black and white striped liner. I like bags with a zipper divider pocket in the middle because it helps with organization. Big bags with no middle divider are a nightmare to find things in. You find yourself digging around for hours just to find your car keys. Gah. No thank you!

I must admit, I’ve never owned a purse that cost over $50 in my whole entire life, nor do I believe my mom has, either. I think at some point every woman should have the chance to see what it feels like to own a really nice purse. I am pumped to take this out for a whirl around town.

My mother is currently fighting cancer. She has a rare aggressive soft tissue sarcoma that chemo can’t kill. However she is on a trial program through OHSU in Portland, Oregon, and is so far keeping the cancer tumors down to a minimum. We have been told ultimately even the trial drug will fail, but it is buying her time right now. I’m sure any one who’s ever had a close friend or family member with cancer would do anything for just a bit more time. And who knows, maybe while we are buying her time, a new drug will come out on the market to buy her even more time or cure the cancer.

I go to a lot of my mom’s chemo sessions. We like to take silly Snapchat photos when we go to chemo together. Not because we’re taking the cancer lightly, but to lighten up our day as we sit there. What kinds of silly things do you do or did you do with your mom? How do you remember Mom on Mother’s day?

(Even one of my cat’s liked the Kate Spade handbag. She took over the spot I was photographing it in as soon as I walked away.)

Blue and white striped tie sleeve romper

I got this cute little blue and white striped romper with tie sleeves for my birthday and am just now getting around to getting photos of it to post for you guys. After rear-ending someone in rush hour traffic a few weeks ago, I started having really bad back pain a week later and ended up in the Urgent Care after a couple of long days on set as an extra. Not sure if the super long days contributed to the intense back pain or not, but it was pretty bad after the second long day that week. I am now going to physical therapy to help mend up those achy muscles. Mostly I feel okay, but my back muscles are pretty tight from where the first knot formed in my shoulder down to my lower back where the pain ended up a week later. Bleh.

Needless to say, I was waiting for my back to feel well enough to put on my cute little wedge heels and romper and go take photos. We forgot to get photos of the cute shoes, so I may as well have worn flats – you all wouldn’t even have known, and I wouldn’t have been wobbling about practically twisting my ankle trying to walk on the rocks to the side of the path all for the sake of a photo! (But, that grass, though!)
