So, DH and I have been there every night to make dinner for the family since my dad doesn't really cook nor does my brother. I'm so glad to be able to help out since my mom has ALWAYS done so much for me.
It really makes me stop and think how fragile life is, and how things can happen in a split second. Take a minute to stop what you're doing (it's never really as important in the future), call your mom and tell her how much you love her and give her a big hug. Or if you're Asian*, give her a hug and tell her how much you love her anyways!!!
* since most Asians don't show public displays of affection-- at least not the ones I know. Trust me. When I was on a student exchange in high school, I was the only Asian in the group. At the airport, all the other students and parents were hugging, kissing and crying. My parents and I looked at each and said "bye". : )

I used a HS mask on top of a transparency -- it worked out great since the paint dried shiny so that it looks as if it is still wet! I outlined the HS letters in paint, and placed it over words that I had written on the Bazzill so that you can read it through the letters. I used a HS stamp on the corner of the photo and drew attention to it with some HS jewels. I also inked one of he HS flowers so that it looks like the ones in the photo.

We hit both Prime (Burlington) and Premium (Tulalip) and there were some great buys!! Picked up a bunch of clothes for the girls and jeans for DH.
MY HUSBAND IS THE BEST!!! He had promised to buy me a Coach purse as a mother's day gift, but he ended up buying me two since I couldn't decide which one I wanted - I really liked the lavender but the pink one is similar to the one I wanted to buy years ago, but couldn't find. So he got both -- but I think it's partly so he wouldn't have to hear me wonder aloud if I made the right choice!!
We also stopped off at Target and though we couldn't find the AL stamps at $10 that Tracy found, I picked up some Prima tins for $10 each -- couldn't resist. Plus I got the Fiskar soft-grip x-acto type knife for only $4.99.
We did end up paying at the border, but the guard was nice annd only charged us GST and PST. It did end up around $50 though -- still it was better than what I could get here. I'm not sure how or why things are so much cheaper in the states?!
I'm heading down again this coming weekend -- my mom wants to check out the sales since they have the Memorial Day sales coming up. Me? I'm taking my mom but don't think I'll be buying much. I spent too much already last week!!
