    If you haven't heard, Mother's Day is fast approaching. And though you may still be scrambling for gift ideas, we know your love for Mom is undeniable (just speaking from experience here).

    In order to get some inspiration for any shopping or card-making that's still left to do, we took a trip down memory lane and dug up some adorably embarrassing throw-back photos, with equally cute quips and quotes to match. Sure, our moms may not love the fact that we're putting their '80s hairstyles on blast, but what better way to show 'em we care than to gush about their support and relive our favorite times spent with them... and yes, put their '80s hairstyles on blast.

And hey, Mom: We appreciate all of the sacrifice, patience, and calm you've exhibited over shocking credit card bills and inexplicable tears — and of course, thank you for all the comments on all of our posts — we love you!
