reason 1,459,824 why i love my mom.

I received the following email from my mom Sunday morning:

MJ- Have you seen the Anthropologie lace dress?
Ridiculous price but so beautiful. I think you should have it
for your 30th birthday.
xo

It made me smile. For one, my 30th isn't until February of next year. Second, like me, my mom thinks it's INSANE to spend $288 on an article of clothing.

But.......



...she is a beauty.

You only turn 30 once right?  

Have you splurged for a big birthday? What did you get?
Happy Monday!
xoxo

I was just LOVING this dress in the magazine over the weekend. Would make an amazing 30th bday dress.

Dor is a saint... I've always been jealous of the fabulous mother you have :)

Scary- my 30th is just over a month away!! Eee!! No splurging on this one, thanks to my loans running out and my job not starting til February.... but maybe when I turn 40 I will go all out!!

your mom is right! that's a GREAT dress, I think you should splurge, though I don't think I did for 30th... I should have.

well why isn't it $49.99?! wouldn't that be nice?!?!

i took a rather expensive vacation for my 40th birthday. gulp. it was probably a cheap vacation by most standards, but it was a lot for me. it was fun, but i had a bit of guilt and worry fretting about the bills. not TOO much, but a little. i am a worrier, and very money conscious, as i don't have a lot! :)

I never even thought of getting something special for a big birthday. I have a couple years until 30, but I think I will go all out and get something nice for myself. Way to go mom for thinking of you!
