It’s 9:30am on the second Sunday of May and everyone is still sleeping. I roll over and take a peek under my bed to wake up my sister (she’s younger so mom thought it would be best if I slept on the top bunk). I whisper, “Today is Mother’s Day! Let’s clean and make mommy breakfast!” My sister gives me a big toothless smile and says, “Yeah!” We tip toe to the kitchen and quietly grab a chair in order to reach the cabinets and sink. About 20 minutes later we take our crunchy scrambled eggs, burnt toast and sausage to mommy’s room. In unison we yell, “HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!” and mommy wakes up in shock and begins to empalarganos con tantos besos (make us sick with lots of kisses).
I get a special feeling when I think back to how I would shower my mom with apapacho (love and care), handmade cards and a ton of plants. Yes, I would save up my piragua (Puerto Rican shaved ice dessert) money and use it to buy pretty plants during the plant day sale at my school. Fast forward 20 years and I still get excited about what to get my mom for Mother’s Day because as the foundation of our household, she deserves it all! Finding the perfect gift isn’t easy with my busy schedule and so many things to choose from but I always make it a priority.
My favorite place to shop has to be Target because it truly is a one-stop shop. Target makes it super convenient for me to drop off my prescriptions, do groceries, get a stylish swimsuit for my upcoming vacation and find my mom something to estrenar (use for the first time). It truly is the perfect place for someone like me to shop because it fits into my everyday life and believe it or not, sometimes we go as a family!
I love making my mom feel beautiful so I picked up a few items from the beauty section at Target. These limited edition Sonia Kashuk makeup brushes caught my attention while searching for the perfect gift for my mom. I own a few of Sonia Kashuk's makeup brushes myself and I just love them! The quality and durability is amazing for the price point. I also picked up the illuMask which I've heard a lot of great things about. It's a light therapy mask that helps reduce the signs of aging by wearing the mask daily for 15 minutes.
I would love to read about how you celebrate Mother’s Day and any childhood memories/traditions you might have! Feel free to share by commenting on this post or on any of my social media channels.
