I asked a few of my favorite bloggers one question and here are their answers.
What is the best advice your mom gave you?
Gabrielle from Design Mom
That the price of an object doesn't always correspond to its beauty.
Beautiful things aren't always expensive.
Catherine from Design Editor
My mother Susan is a strong, confident and funny mom. Never one to hold back her opinions or thoughts, she's given me a lifetime of valued advice. Of course she's guided me through major life moments, but the things that stick out most in my mind apply to day-to-day life. It's like I have a tiny Mom on my shoulder as I'm about to do something. "You buy junk, you have junk." "Never wear peach lipstick." "Wrap that cake in wax paper or it'll go stale." A million different things and I'm so thankful for it all.

My favorite advice that my Mom has given me is that she has always told me that the dishes can wait. What she means by that is to never turn down doing something with your children just because your house is messy. The dishes and housework will always be there when your done. That time with your children being young and needing you won't. I probably take this advice too literally because my house is always a mess. Hopefully my kid's will have fun memories of things we did together just like I do with my Mom.
Cindi from A Utah Mom's Life
My mom gave me so much fabulous advice. Probably the best advice was to pursue an education and then to continue learning throughout my life. She set the example for me by going back to school when we were small and finishing her degree. She worked hard and graduated with honors. She's been a school teacher for 23 years now. I always knew that education was important to her.
