JTV Mother’s Day Gifts and Giveaway

Mother’s Day can be a really beautiful day for moms, but it can also be a hard day for moms. I know the moms who struggle with this day struggle for different reasons. Some feel like it is a frustrating day because they feel unappreciated every other day of the year, others don’t feel like they deserve the praise they receive on Mother’s Day. Me? I love Mother’s Day! I have always loved celebrating the moms in my life! I love calling my grandmas to wish them a happy Mother’s Day and spoiling my own mom. Now that I am a mother, I appreciate having the one day that I feel like a rock star. It doesn’t happen often, so I enjoy embracing it! I think all moms should learn to embrace Mother’s Day. It wasn’t created to make moms feel bad about themselves. That is quite the opposite!

This year, I wanted to do something extra special for my mom. That’s why I teamed up with JTV (Jewelry Television) and I am giving her this beautiful ring for Mother’s Day!

That sounds really cool, right? Well, it is even more special because I got one for me too! I think it will be a pretty special gift knowing that we both get to experience motherhood together. It is kind of a symbol of that. My mom has always been there for me. She has literally seen me at my best and at my worst. I call and text her constantly asking for advice with my own experiences I am having as a mother. I think these rings will be a symbol of that.

What Mom REALLY Wants

Moms earn Mother’s Day. Just this morning I found myself in that frustrated state that many moms find themselves in on a daily basis. I was trying to get work done on my computer and decided to put a show on my laptop for my two year old bossy pants. She wanted to watch Little Einsteins. Instead of going on a rant about how much I dislike that show, I will just tell you that I tricked her and put Sophia the First on instead. She was NOT happy with me. When I say not happy, what I actually mean is that she had a full on temper tantrum. She had huge tears running down her deliciously chubby cheeks and would look at me like I had totally betrayed her. I helped her calm down a little and guess what happened? She fell into a trance and realized that she loves Sophia the First! Mom always knows best, right?

It is the little moments like the Sophia the First argument that make me think about how difficult being a mom can really be. It can sometimes be a whole series of these events that happen throughout the day that make moms exhausted! When we are in the middle of those moments, it seems like that is the biggest deal in the world and also the most frustrating situation in the world. It is after the kids have gone to bed that moms can look back and laugh about those small “crisis” moments that happen everyday. Being a mom is being a coach, a teacher, a counselor, a beautician, a shoulder to cry on, a chef, a friend, and so much more than that. Moms rock.

It is important to celebrate moms. That is why I am a firm believer in celebrating yourself as a mom as well! Spoil yourself a little for Mother’s Day this year.

RedEnvelope was the perfect place for me to do a little spoiling of myself. I literally love every single thing on their site, but I chose this amazingly gorgeous bowl as my early Mother’s Day self spoiling gift this year.

Red Envelope Turquoise Bowl

Isn’t it delicious? I chose this bowl because I have a very exciting kitchen update that is happening in the near future! This bowl will be the perfect accent piece in my soon to be newly beautiful kitchen.

I have loved being able to see this gorgeous bowl in my house because it is a nice little reminder that even though I may not be doing everything right, I am trying. That little reward to myself is the little push I needed to get through some of those tough days that happen.

I think all moms deserve to be spoiled with something gorgeous from RedEnvelope. My mom is probably the hardest working person I know. She works constantly and when she isn’t working, she babysits for me so that I can have a date night. She is the best. She deserves something gorgeous too. I want to know why you deserve something special. Let’s face it. Our days aren’t all perfect, but the gifts we gift to ourselves or our moms can be!

To celebrate moms in a really special way, RedEnvelope is giving away 3 $500 gift cards! To enter, use the Rafflecopter widget below. Good luck!

Mother’s Day outfit for my momma!

When I was given the opportunity to shop at Sears for my mom’s Mother’s Day gift, I jumped at it! My mom is SO stylish and cute, but rarely is given clothing. She usually just shops and finds things on her own. I think that by giving her a fun outfit for her to wear on Mother’s Day will be a great way to celebrate what a great mom she is.
