My Mom

Not many people know that my mom raised horses (I think this one is "Cookie") and that on Christmas day her house burned down and the only thing she was able to save was her new saddle.

Not many people know that my mom used to bleach part of her bangs.

Not many people know that my mom sewed fur on to her coats to make them look more expensive.

Or that every time she had a child she almost died.
(There are seven of us.)

Not many people know that my mom and dad shared a passion for traveling and avocados.

Not many people know that my mom can make a tree grow anywhere.
She singlehandedly created several small forests.

Not many people know that my mom had an amazing collection of really cool pants.

Most people don't know that my mom has a degree in nutrition.

Not many people know that my mom loves getting her photo taken in her bathing suit.

Not many people know that my mom decided when she was a girl that she wanted to be a member of the church, even though no one else in her family was interested.

Not many people know I'm her favorite child.

(Ha, ha. Just kidding, guys.)

Happy Mothers Day, Mom.


  1. An excellent tribute. Happy Mother's Day to you both.

  2. Very nice Chelsea....

    My fiter blocked the swimsuit picture..Probably because mom is such a hot babe even now.

  3. Wow I didn't know any of those things about your momma. What else can I learn?

    She is such a sweetie.

    Happy Mother's day Aunt Patsy!

  4. I loved that! Mom, you are so cool.

  5. Great post. You look so much like your mom in a lot of these pics. Both beautiful!! Happy Mothers' Day!

  6. I agree with Shara...I had no idea about ANY of those things. I want to know more!

    And you and your Mom are twins. Which sounds about right, since she is really stunning.

  7. I love your mom. Your parents were always so great to me.

  8. So fun to learn all these things about your mom.

  9. What a fun group of fabulous pictures and wonderful tribute. Great job Chelsea.
