My first…Becky and Monique weekend (in AGES)

A few months back my mom heard about a weekend shopping “fair” called the Junk Bonanza. She was told it was a vintage sale and that it was a blast. We knew nothing else, and we were sold. I bought tickets and we decided to make a weekend out of it. As the date drew closer we decided to make a 5 day go of it. Not just the Junk Bonanza but the girls weekend! We had such a great time and I was so thrilled to have my mom on my “turf”.

Rather than doing a run down of all of the fun stuff we saw/did, I thought I would simply do a picture entry—highlight reel if you will. Hope you enjoy!!

The older I get the more and more fun I have with my mom. The above pictures are great but nothing compares to the actual time we got to spend together. Whether going to a bonanza or sitting in the cold drinking Irish Coffee everything is better when she is around. So I suggest you have a mom date, a mom weekend… heck just call your mom– she loves you and as I have learned, she’s your biggest cheerleader!!!


Love you Mom

    You are an amazing young woman and beautiful daughter, Monique…you and your mother are both blessed and I for one could not be more happy for the two of you for what you have in each other. Love you!
