I love this so much I felt I should expound on the events leading up to this moment. I truly start laughing out loud as I look at it.😂😂😂❤ As I was planning my epic birthday barbeque, Im sad to admit, the thought hadn't really crossed my mind that my mother would be attending. So imagine my surprise when shes outside my door asking to be let in...lol. Thanks to my friend Robert, this was hands down one of the best surprises I've ever had. I've gotten her good so many times with the surprise visits over the years I guess it was my turn.
After a late start and calling in few key reinforcements to keep this party on track the last thing I was thinking about was my appearance...lol. The fact that I had no makeup on, my hair was barely done and I was walking around with the ugliest shoes on ever should have given me pause but my makeup peeps are family and most know me better than I know myself so I was comfortable. I had showered and that was the most important thing...lol. After quite a few guest had arrived I decided I needed record of this wonderful event. So no matter how crazy I looked I needed to get a few selfies with my guests. First stop was a towel on the ground with my amazing friend and right hand Monica. I outwardly noted how difficult it was for me to get down on the ground (at 44) and was already nervous about being able to get up gracefully when my mother decided she wanted to be a part of the selfie too. 😮😮😬😦 As many of you may know I am everyone's mama. Even my momma's mama...lol. So protective by nature that I cant cut off if I tried. Knowing momma has bad knees I immediately go in to mama mode fussing at her to not even try it (which draws attention of course). Then she practically falls on me and we are both down on the ground. All the while im thinking I could barely get down here now how am I gonna get both of us up.. Lol. I believe we both had the same thought at the same time as we both started to laugh which turned into hysterical laughter 😂😂😂😂
Thanks to the aid of quite a few friends we both made it back to standing position...lol. And I made her swear to never do that again. Oh and I totally forgot to take anymore selfies.
