It’s finally starting to feel like spring in NY. The sun’s out, birds are chirping, flowers are starting to bloom, and Mother’s Day is around the corner! I love holidays, especially ones where you get to show your appreciation and love for the special woman in your life. This woman does it all, and is the best wifey and mommy to her 2 boys. From laundry, to cleaning, to helping Nate with his school projects, shooting and editing all of my blog photos, and working her day job, it’s no wonder she freaks out that there’s not enough time in the day sometimes! She works from home so she’s in her office a lot and has slowly been trying to redo her space and make it less chaotic and more of an inspiring work space, so I thought us helping her with this would be the perfect gift!

This Mother’s Day I teamed up with JCPenney, to show you that you don’t have to break the bank on a gift, and also be able to find that piece you know she’ll love. From jewelry to apparel and home decor to those unique gifts you wouldn’t normally think of, JCPenney has a huge selection. They’re the one-stop shop for just about any Mother’s Day gift you can think of, with the best prices. No matter what kind of gift I decided to go with I knew I could find it here. Now I know I could have just went the easy route and stopped by the jewelry department and picked up something there, but I wanted to do something a little different this year.

She loves green plants. Real or fake, she just loves adding them to our home. We have a bunch of cacti, a palm, and then some little fake guys mixed in all around our house. And I do agree, they just add that freshness to our space. Unfortunately, we don’t get a lot of light in our house and most of the plants, besides the cactus, end up dying. My wife has been talking about finding a faux hanging plant for her office corner, so Nate and I took to to do some searching, and luckily, we found what we were looking for! They had the perfect plant with just the right amount of droopiness! It’s the perfect size, is potted in a clean, white pot, and looks close to being real! It’s actually really pretty and I’m pretty proud of ourselves for finding it!

We picked up a white ceiling hook, and as soon as we hung it up, we knew she was going to love it! It hangs at just the right height, right above her desk decor and really completes that part of the room, and adds some depth to her new wall tapestry. We did good, Nate! We couldn’t wait for mommy to come home and see her new plant. We were right, she loved it! Just sitting at her new desk in her office that is slowly starting to come together, I can definitely see how working in a space like this, is much more relaxing when she’s juggling so much on the day to day. We love you mommy and appreciate all you do!

Check out this plant we found on! It will seriously add the perfect touch of leafy greens to any room, whether you get that natural sunlight or not! We love it!
