My #MothersDay Featuring #Faith, #Fashion, and #FriedChicken #Southernstyle

(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

I everyone had a Blessed Mother's Day and hear is my how enjoyed my Mother's Day regardless of the ups and downs to still be a blessed Day!! Although I couldn't attend most activities due to my car's starter, Nathan, who lives with Autism, and I couldn't attend the Home Depot Kids Workshop and missed Sunday Services! And with dealing with raging tween hormones and moods, Nathan decided not to make homemade cards either which my Mom (his Grandma), his foster mom, and myself just decided that its just OK and respect his choice!! We have always taught Nathan that love comes from the heart and from God and sometimes we gives presents on Mother's Day just to another way to say "Thank you Mom" and other ladies too! Despite the week being cool and wet for May, I decided to wear this outfit this Sunday which is a sleeveless St.John's Baby top and black pants!! Then I wear my hear down using Loreal Extraordinary Oil Serum, sprayed with Loreal Elentt Hair Spray, then placed my well loved pearly head band on my hair to finish my hairstyle!!

Love the cards, Lindt Chocolate ( can a woman have too much good chocolate on Mother's Day ;), the special nail polish mug and "Mom" heart card that my Nathan made in his special Autism class at his Middle School!! (Tears) I have always love the crafts and cards from daycare to now his 1st year of middle with a little help from the dedicated teachers and staff!!

I also enjoyed this pleasant coconut mini candle from Bath & Body Works which is called "Hawaii Oahu Coconut Sunset" that scented the room and lights me up on the inside when I feel a little down on the inside!! Can a woman get too many candles (good ones) on Mother's Day...NOPE!!

My mom has rarely made her homemade Fried Chicken and since this was my Mother's Day treat I enjoyed this Southern goodness!! Everyone including Nathan enjoyed the fried chicken this Sunday! 

I am truly thankful to the Lord for blessing me on this Mother's Day for his Savior, my Nathan, and family and friends that celebrated being  a Mom is a calling on this weekend!! May all of you have a Blessed Mother's Day Weekend!

Until next time...
