Mother’s Day

We’ve been celebrating mamas around here quite a bit lately.  So, I thought I’d share a few pics.  Hope you guys are having a wonderful Wednesday!!


We had family in town the first weekend in May and were able to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and my wonderful mother-in-law all at once!  We love any holiday that includes Mexican food 😉 .


And then the following weekend, we celebrated Mother’s Day with my mama.  My mom loves this one particular brisket pizza on our town square, so that’s where we headed.


Love my mama so much!


And then on Sunday morning, the kids (and Andrew) asked me what I wanted to do…and I said, go to church, have lunch and spend the whole day by the pool.  It was my favorite Mother’s Day EVER!!  (Side note, I had some people ask about my dress, it’s HERE and my heels are HERE.)


On the way to church, we stopped at Starbucks and Kensington and Andrew got me coffee 🙂 .


Ah!  The perfect way to head to church!


After church, we had a lovely lunch…


…love these kiddos so much!


Kensington loves going on walks with me, so when we got home, she asked if we could walk before swimming.  We took this pic on the way out the door.  Even her American Girl had workout clothes on!


And then we spent the rest of the day in the pool, or I read a book and it was GLORIOUS…


…and then at one point, Andrew even brought me guacamole.  Hello?!  Best pool snack EVER!


This about sums up my day 🙂 .

For dinner, Andrew made us Bleu Cheese Steaks, baked potatoes, a salad, and sliced strawberries.  The perfect way to end my Mother’s Day.

      Athleta 🙂

  • Emily @ a little bit of Emily May 17, 2017 at 6:21 am

    What a wonderful way to spend Mother’s Day! So nice you were able to celebrate both your mom and mother in lentil. Makes it even more fun when holidays get extended like that!

  • Sheaffer Sims May 17, 2017 at 6:21 am

    Happy first Mother’s Day as a mama of FOUR! It looks like the perfect day of celebration. I can’t wait to have my fourth baby home next year to celebrate. Oh and I love how much you like your mom!

  • Kayla May 17, 2017 at 6:46 am

    Is your vineyard vine hat white or the boardwalk color? If it’s boardwalk, does it have a yellow tone to the white?

    • Mix and Match Mama May 17, 2017 at 7:35 am

      It’s white!!

  • Brittany Hensley May 17, 2017 at 7:00 am

  • Jessica May 17, 2017 at 7:02 am

    • Mix and Match Mama May 17, 2017 at 7:34 am


  • Meghan May 17, 2017 at 7:04 am

    You and your mom are twins! So beautiful, each of you! Such a sweet mother’s day!

    Your mother in law is beautiful!

  • Lori Ann May 17, 2017 at 8:23 am

    Please let Kensington know that her new sandals are fabulous and looked great on Mother’s Day! So glad it was a fun one!

  • Chrystianne May 17, 2017 at 8:37 am

    I am always amazed at how you always have lipgloss/lipstick on. #goals

  • Sarah May 17, 2017 at 8:50 am

    Such a sweet and beautiful family! I saw something on HuffPost parents that reminded me of you because of your awesome adoption stories–29 photos that celebrate how women became moms. The first photo really made me tear up:

  • Sara May 17, 2017 at 8:57 am

    Madeley’s smile in the pre-church picture is just precious 🙂

  • Sara Presley May 17, 2017 at 8:58 am

    Just curious– who do you think Kensington looks like? From your pics, I always think she has your MIL’s features? And sometimes see your mama too. Looks like a beautiful day 🙂

    • Mix and Match Mama May 17, 2017 at 11:32 am

      I think it changes every day! Some days, she looks like Andrew’s side and other days, my side. 🙂

  • Barbara parnell May 17, 2017 at 9:04 am

    Sounds like a perfect day! Glad you enjoyed!

  • Angela Ellingson May 17, 2017 at 9:05 am

    That really does look like the perfect Mother’s Day! Can’t wait till our town pool opens!

  • Jenny May 17, 2017 at 9:11 am

    It looks like you guys had a great Mother’s Day! I never tire from seeing your sunny Texas pictures. I’m living vicariously through you all right now. 😉

  • Rebecca Jo May 17, 2017 at 9:40 am

    It really does look like a perfect Mother’s Day.
    Book & quac? You had me for the win right there 😉

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick May 17, 2017 at 10:07 am

    Girl, you’re backyard is like a little slice of heaven. I love it!!! Glad you had a relaxing day!!

  • Diana May 17, 2017 at 10:29 am

    I know that pizza place with the AHHH-MAZING brisket pizza! Now I’m craving it!! 🙂 I wanted to spend Mother’s Day the same way – relaxed and just enjoying my family. I love a good reason to have my hubs grill up steaks! 🙂

  • Liz May 17, 2017 at 11:06 am

    Do you know where Kensington’s pink purse is from (in the Starbuck’s picture)? I’m looking for something like it for my daughter–big enough to hold all the things she likes to carry with her…

    • Mix and Match Mama May 17, 2017 at 11:30 am

      I can’t remember???

  • Alison Rice-Swiss May 17, 2017 at 11:23 am

    Happy Mother’s Day! Would you mind sharing what lipstick you’re wearing in the 3rd picture (the one with your lovely mom)?

    • Mix and Match Mama May 17, 2017 at 11:29 am

      Bobbi Brown’s Taffeta 🙂

    • Ali May 17, 2017 at 3:17 pm


  • Lindsay @ Lindsay's Sweet World May 17, 2017 at 12:23 pm

    Mother’s Day perfection. You are so blessed, Shay. If you ever want to send Andrew our way, feel free… my hubs could use some cooking lessons. ;o)

  • Tamra May 17, 2017 at 12:50 pm

    It’s quite obvious you had a wonderful Mother’s Day with your beautiful family! Everyone looks genuinely happy in all your pics. It’d be nice if more families were able to celebrate together as your family does. On a different note, can you share where you purchased your earrings in the before church pics?

    • Mix and Match Mama May 17, 2017 at 1:01 pm

      They’re from Stella & Dot :). And thank you. xo

  • Allison Scranton May 17, 2017 at 1:25 pm

    Ashby looks so grown up in the Mother’s Day picture!

  • cassie {hi sugarplum} May 17, 2017 at 2:38 pm

    It sounds so perfect…and you all look so beautiful! But do you know what stood out to me most?!? That you have enough time to stop at Starbucks before church!?!?! We are literally running in with the opening note of praise and worship every time!! Literally!!! And I have two mostly-grown kids! How do you do it?!?!? 😉 xo

  • Michele Bartell May 17, 2017 at 3:50 pm

    Can you share what color lipstick/lipgloss you’re wearing in the Mother’s Day pictures?

  • Nicole F May 17, 2017 at 4:05 pm

    Happy Mother’s Day! Your day seems like the perfect relaxing way to celebrate. I’m learning as my kids get older, it’s the best way to celebrate 🙂

  • Leiah May 17, 2017 at 6:56 pm

    What color is the lipstick you’re wearing on Mother’s Day? You look so pretty! I hope you had a wonderful day 🙂

    • Mix and Match Mama May 18, 2017 at 4:39 am

      That’s a Channel lip pencil/lip stick thing in Rose Clair.

  • Erin Port May 17, 2017 at 9:30 pm

    I think your mother’s day sounds delightful. We love guacamole by the pool, why does it taste EVEN better there? Also I thought that Kensington and you walking together was the cutest :). What a great way to get some one on one time in. I notice a neighbor of mine does it with her daughter, so sweet! xoxo ERIN

  • Laura May 17, 2017 at 10:00 pm

    Andrew’s mom looks so young and just beautiful! Kensington looks exactly like her! I think that every time you post a picture of her! 🙂

  • Bethany May 17, 2017 at 11:22 pm

    What a beautiful day! Happy Mother’s Day!
