I was born on May 10th, which is the day many Latin American countries celebrate El Día de las Madres/Mother´s Day. Yes, I have been such a gift to my mamá!
I´m used to having to congratulate my mom and give her a gift at the same time I´m receiving a gift and congratulations from her. As of 3 years ago, I´ve had to get used to receiving the one congratulation for the day I was born and for being a mother.
However, since we live in the U.S., I can separate these two important celebrations! We celebrate Mother´s Day with my husband and daughter on the second Sunday in May and my birthday on May 10th. Yes…a sneaky way of getting two gifts!
To make it easy for my husband, I´m dropping him some subtle hints as to what this mamá would like. Since I´m a Walmart Mom, I´ve chose one affordable option and one not-so-affordable, but much more so since it´s from Walmart and they have an Everyday Low Price Guarantee, meaning that if you find a lower price on the same item Walmart will match it.

Since I really need to get off my Facebook rear and work out, especially now that I´m looking at 40, and I just don´t have much time to get to the gym, I would love to try one of Jillian Michael´s fitness DVDs. The tank and the yoga pants are to feel good while getting ripped abs.

I´m a blogger without a camera. I take all my pictures with my iPhone and it does a great job, but I would do much better with a dedicated point and shoot camera. The digital frame is me finally admitting I´m never going to get my girl´s almost four years of life in pictures printed the old-fashioned way. I give in to reality, bring on the digital frame into my digital life!
1. Philips 7″ Digital Frame $49 (In select stores until 5/7. Check your Walmart Local Ad)
2. Nikon S4100 Camera with Bonus 4GB SD Card and case (Pink, to please my girl) $147 (In select stores until 5/7)
What’s on your Mother’s Day wish list? Do you let your husband surprise you or do you throw not-so-subtle hints?
