your mom: a day with mine via 1983

Last week I mentioned how a few of us bloggers on twitter somehow got onto the topic of our moms, if they were bloggers what it would be like.. or what their styles were like.. Sandy & Erika shared some style inspired posts, but I wanted to share a day in my moms life =)

*If my mom had a blog, this would have been her post 29 yrs ago (yikes!)*

You must be my lucky star 'cause you shine on me wherever you are - madonna

I seriously can't get these lyrics out of my head guys, her new album comes out in July & they keep playing her songs on MTV (do you get that channel? its so cool.. music all the time on tv, this is huge!!!) anyways I think this Madonna chick will just be a one hit wonder, but I really like her right now.

Wendy (my sis) is going to pick me up later, I love riding around in her car.  The looks we get from guys is so funny, they dig it.  We usually just put Heather all the way in the back - no harm in that - I can't get over the gas prices though.. $1.24 really?! I hope they don't stay this high forever!

I think we will head to the mall I really want to get Heather's ears pierced, unless we go to the fair this weekend because they do them there too, over by the animal barn.  Anyways I really want to get an Esprit shirt, a new crimper and maybe a cabbage patch doll for Heather.  Later tonight we have to get home so we don't miss a new episode of Magnum, P.I.. Tom Selleck is like totally sexy!

I did the funniest thing last night when I was bored, I put a bowl over Heathers head and just cut around it.  You guys- bowl cuts are the easiest things to do and I hope when she is old enough she realizes how cute and stylish she was!  Well thats all I've been up too.. tomorrow we are doing a product review for this cool product Hypercolor I guess their shirts are going to be the next big thing, I will let you know how it goes!

yes my mom loved madonna
yes she put me in the back of that blue pinto (dangerous much?!)
yep gas was cheap
ummm yeah i got my ears pierced at a fair by the animal barn
bowl cut for the win
and i'm a product of the 80s!

Want to share a day in your mom's life, or even share some of her styles? Link up!
