✘ An Unforgettable Mother's Day ✘

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. Did you celebrate Mother's Day? My Mother's Day was a bit of a...scare. I'll tell you why in just a bit.
I went to church early in the morning as usual however today I couldn't stay for lunch with my friends because I had work. I left right after service and my boyfriend drove me to the mall. He would have stayed for lunch with me before work but because it was Mother's Day he had to have lunch with his mom, which meant he had to be home by 12.

He dropped me off around 11:30 and I didn't have work until 1, so I walked around and did some shopping as well has had lunch before work.

I went to Sephora first and actually ran into my best friend Jennie there! She was spending time with her mom so we only talked for a little bit before she left. I kept looking around and picked up this really nice smelling perfume by Givenchy. It's called Electric Rose and it smells just like the name haha! I can't describe scents very well but this one is like a musky floral. I don't like overly flowery scents but this one is quite nice!
I had a two gift cards which paid for most of the perfume's cost. I ended up earning 3 times the rewards points for this purchase so I picked up the 500 point perk. It was a little set by Benefit and I only decided to get it because they never really have any good 500 point prizes. Inside the set they have a sample of their best selling mascara, a red tint and a liquid highlighter.
What a cute little box!
Next I went to Urban Planet because they were having a huge sale. I picked up two shirts, one for $5 and one for $12! They're really nice and I think they'll be great for summer~
Love the lace in the back!
This one's a really cute lilac but the
 camera doesn't pick that up very well
It's an open back just like the black one!
After that it was about time for work. So far my day's been pretty chill right? Here's when things took a turn for the worst. My boyfriend texted me on my break and told me he couldn't pick me up because he had gotten into a car accident. He was going to the Vancouver Hospital and his mom was going to the Burnaby Hospital. I had no idea what was going on and I started to panic.

Thankfully he called me right after I asked him if he was okay (I was about to walk out of work! >n<;;). It turns out he and his mom were both fine, but for some reason they got sent to different hospitals. He assured me they were both unharmed but he didn't know how long he'd be. When I got off work at 6 I rushed home to drop my things off and asked a friend to give me a ride to the hospital where he was at. He got a ride from his dad to the Burnaby Hospital and they were just waiting for his mom to get out of her tests.

The whole thing was still kind of a shock to all of us, but I'm super grateful and thankful they're both safe and unharmed. Apparently a car was turning and it hit the car next to them. That set off a chain of crashes and my boyfriend's car ended up flipped over and it skid down the street. They had to have firemen cut them out of the car. Here's a picture courtesy of Twitter:
That's his car. You can see the doors have been cut and his mom is actually getting into an ambulance in the right side of the picture.

I don't know what I would have done if something really happened to them. They're both really dear to me and I'm just happy they're safe and well. My boyfriend has a few cuts on his hand from the glass but that's all and I'm so so so relieve that he didn't have any other injuries. His mom was just a little shocked and shaken up but she's fine as well. She's a little bit sore from the collision but she will be okay.
That was the second time a car accident almost took someone from me. The first being the one my mom was in 2 years ago when a stupid drunk driver was running a red light. I'm just glad everything's okay now. A lot of friends left us heartfelt messages and supportive texts so thank you for that (if you guys ever read this) ^__^

I hope you all had a much less stressful and scary Mother's Day! As usual, thank you for reading and enjoy the rest of your week! ❤❤❤
