My mom and I are definitely different people, but there are a few key things that make us two birds of a feather:

  • We love a good mall. We will travel far and wide for a good mall.
  • Our favorite place to eat is at Cava in Montecito. It’s a long way to go, but it’s worth the trek for seafood enchiladas!
  • We’re both night owls who love nothing more than sleeping in.
  • We can’t decide if “You’ve Got Mail” or “It’s Complicated” is our favorite movie. So we watch both. A lot.
  • We are forever running at least fifteen minutes late. It’s the worst habit in the world yet neither of us can seem to break it.

And finally, we both have come to appreciate the value of understated jewelry. Okay, let me clarify: my mom has always appreciated the value of understated jewelry. Me? Not so much. I had to go through many an oversized J. Lo hoop earrings / blinged-out costume jewelry phase throughout my high school + college days to get to where I am now. But hey! Here we are, together.

The bottom line is that my mom is my best friend and the first person I thought of when it came to gifting a pair of these beautiful white diamond stud earrings from JTV’s collection of insanely gorg diamond jewelry. After all, she’s the one who taught me everything I know: how to be a friend, how to be a mother, how to be a wife, and how to see the bright side of any situation. She’s a gem.

    My ideal morning is getting to sleep in, then having a leisurely cup of tea or coffee with my hubby. PS: LOVE the earrings!!! Swoon. PSS: My mom is my best friend as well. 💜😏

  • Jamie

    Great post AM! Ideal morning includes sleeping in, coffee brought to me in bed and a day with nothing on the horizon :)

  • Natalie

    This is so sweet of you! My perfect morning would be sleeping in, relaxing in front of my computer, watching movies or reading blogs, and sipping a yummy smoothie!

  • Kristen

    These are gorgeous! My ideal morning looks like this:

    My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship, but we lived together for a few months over the summer. He would always wake up before me, make us both tea, and then come back and read while I slowly woke up. I’d lay with my head in his lap listening to him turn the pages and sip his tea. It was so comfortable and peaceful, just the most relaxing, happy way to spend a morning that I can think of. Plus, once we were up he’d make breakfast bagels with slow cooked eggs, bacon, and avocado. SO delicious.

  • Lauren

    I don’t think anything has made me appreciate my mom more than becoming a mom myself.

    My ideal morning would be making breakfast, probably waffles, with my husband and son in the kitchen, listening to a good station on pandora, and then going for a nice walk in the woods. We are all morning people. Then on the weekend I take a nap around 9:30 when the baby takes his nap.

  • Caitlyn

    I agree with Lauren above: I find myself constantly thinking of my mom now that we have our own baby (eleven weeks old today!), and being extremely grateful!

    I got to experience an ideal morning today! Baby slept almost 8 hours and woke up kicking and smiling. Fed her before laying her next to my husband and snuggling with both of them in bed, and then made breakfast: coffee and banana pancakes! A peaceful morning with sunshine calling us to get outside for a nice walk soon!

  • Emma

    My ideal morning?! I could go on and on… I am also a night owl, so I would love to leisurely wake up (without an alarm) around 9:30. Then, I’d make myself some breakfast and eat it outside in some warm sunshine. It would be REALLY perfect if I could step outside and be on the beach too… but that’s just dreaming :)

  • Amelia

    My ideal morning is definitely waking up early and getting things checked off my to do list before spending time with family!

  • Megan

    My perfect morning is sleeping in, spending time with my family, coffee and a great breakfast. This is a great giveaway. Thanks!

  • Whitney

    My ideal morning is getting up early to take a long shower and then crawling back into bed (why does that feel so amazing!?!) Then, endless coffee and reading a good book. Because being insanely lazy is somehow always the most appealing morning to me.

  • alicia szemon

    my morning routine is to get up, let my duckies and chickens outside, and then eat a yummy breakfast(:

  • C.L.

    Following :) My ideal morning consists of sleeping in and then taking a leisurely walk to the local coffee shop with my husband. We love supporting small businesses and building community within our larger city.

  • Juanna

    My ideal morning consist of waking up to the sun shining brightly in my living room, having breakfast of pancakes, toasts and the works over a cup of nice hot coffee or tea with the husband. Just savouring the peace and quiet and just thinking about life and the dreams. Hope my son who will be arriving soon in 3 weeks will learn to enjoy this solitude and contentedness too. :)

  • alisha

    I love You’ve Got Mail, too! :) My ideal morning involves drinking coffee somewhere cozy. I’m dreaming about having an enclosed outdoor space for me to sit and sip while my son toddles around as the day begins. And those diamond earrings wouldn’t hurt! xo

  • Tracie Cooper

    My ideal morning is a long very hot bubble bath followed by brunch with my hubby! My instagram is @traciemichelle05 and my email is

  • Ashley

    My ideal morning would be to wake up fully rested and ready to start the day. I’d spend some time reading my Bible and getting centered on God for the day then I’d take a shower, do my skincare routine and grab a cup of coffee. I’d drink coffee and check my email and social media accounts. Then get dressed and start my day working on something for my business.

    I just have to say those earrings are gorgeous!

  • Kassie

    My ideal morning starts with a cuddle with my sweet kitten Hunter and then having coffee with my wonderful family.

  • Darla

    My perfect morning is waking up in Maui to the birds who are so excited for another beautiful day. Coffee on the lanai watching for whales can’t be any better.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  • kenny hall

    I’m following them on Instagram! My ideal morning would involve a great breakfast, a lot of coffee, and reading the paper in quiet :-)

  • denise K.

    My ideal morning would be my husband making breakfast and just relaxing & talking. Thank you :-) Gorgeous earrings

  • Larissa C.

    My morning is all about BREAKFAST! My ideal morning would be waking up next to my boyfriend and go on a brunch with my sisters and talk all the morning about upcoming projects and plans for the summer. OF COURSE we would drink a good cup of coffee and eat a lot of eegs.
    The pair of earrings would rotate my sisters and me, we never ever had our own jewlery. We always stole a nice necklace from another ;-)

  • Gerilyn Larsen

    My ideal morning is sitting on the deck with my husband and dogs. Drinking coffee and discussing the upcoming day. Planning, preparing and making things happen!

  • Andrea L'Heureux

    You and your mom are adorable! And those earrings are the perfect amount of bling while still being understated. My ideal morning would be sleeping in and a big plate of french toast and maybe watching last night’s tv shows! What a fun giveaway :)
