Ok, first off, MOM, if you’re reading this… STOP! You’ll spoil your surprise! You can come back and read this AFTER Mother’s Day.
I’m one of those people that has a hard time finding the right gift for anyone. I can never seem to find what I’m looking for at an affordable price, plus it takes me FOREVER because I pretty much meander aimlessly around the stores, a glazed look in my eye, randomly picking items off shelves that I think might have potential.
So if any of you out there are like me and have absolutely no idea what to get your mom for Mother’s Day, I think I may have a solution. I received an email just the other day from a wonderful lady named Michelle who sells home decor, gifts, and all kinds of stuff in between in her online store called Crab Apples. She cordially invited me to check out her website, so I headed over there and, guys, let me tell you- it’s Really Freakin’ Awesome. She has lots of cool stuff that is all $19.95 or less. OR LESS! And you know that the whole time I’ve been blogging, almost nine months, I have never, ever done any reviews or recommended products off of someone’s website. THAT is how excited I am! I have seriously just found not only a website to buy stuff for myself, but my new gift place as well!
And the really cool part? The products listed on her website are just the tip of the iceberg. She has even more items in catalogues that aren’t listed on the website… so of course, I asked her to send me some of those catalogues. I even talked to her on the phone about my particular order, and let me tell you, she is quite possibly one of the nicest people I think I have ever talked to.
Besides myself, of course.
And yes, I TALK TO MYSELF. And I am quite sure I am not the only one!
And nowadays, it’s so refreshing to talk to someone every once in a while who’s nice, you know? I get so tired of rude people. People pulling out SLOWLY in front of me while I’m driving. People cutting in front of me in a checkout line. PEOPLE GIVING MY BOOBS THE EVIL EYE.
Yeah, I don’t get it, either. It’s like they all think that my boobs are there SPECIFICALLY TO PISS THEM OFF. Yes, they are real, and no, I never wear low-cut shirts in public, so I’m not sure what the Death Looks are all about. Now, back before I got pregnant, in the Days Of Normal Boobs, I could sport a low-cut shirt any day and still manage to receive less dirty looks than I do now. There is NO WAY I would wear anything low cut out in public now, and yet people still stare.
Some people never cease to amaze me.
I have my pregnancy with Nathan to thank for this damned curse “gift”. I find myself often wishing that they were one pregnancy result that I could return. Nathan, of course, I’ll gladly keep. I’ll even keep the stretch-marks… JUST LET ME GIVE THE BOOBS BACK. Just an exchange for some normal ones would be nice.
So anyway, I can’t tell you guys exactly what I’m getting my mom just in case she happened to miss reading the first sentence because well, and that’s something I would totally do.
Accidentally. Of course. I like surprises and I think it sucks when one gets spoiled.
Anyway, I’ll let you guys know what I got my mom after I give it to her, and I am already quite sure that she’ll really like it because I’m telling ya, Crab Apples has some really cool stuff that I am totally diggin’.
