We headed up to meet my mom at Paradise Grill for brunch. The weather was not as warm and sunny as I had hoped but we did OK sitting outside. Mj bought mom flowers and I gave her the Spa gift certificate that my sister and I went in on together. She gets to pamper herself at the spa and she so deserves it. It was a 3 course meal. We each had a drink of our choosing, a starter, an entree and a dessert. We were all stuffed by the end but the dessert was part of the package
so kind, generous and just overall amazing. We have always been close and I am so lucky to have her.
My mom showed me the three dresses she picked out for my wedding. The black one was so cute but it's a July wedding so it won't work. She's going to keep it anyways because it is so cute. There was a maroon one in typical mother of the bride style with a little jacket to go with it. I felt the color would compliment Pink nicely and it was OK but it had nothing on the Pink strapless one. First of all it's a lovely pastel Pink. Second of all it is stylish and hip and my mom is going to look just gorgeous in it. She had a few reservations. "Yes mom, I know you are fifty but you look great and can so pull this off." And she will.
Mom and I went and got pedicures after brunch. It's been a ridiculously long time since I had a pedicure and it felt nice. Unfortunately due to the gloomy weather I am still wearing closed toed shoes today but at least I know I have pretty toes under there. We stopped at my aunt's house to say hi on the way back to the house and before we knew it it was about time to go home. I finished up the laundry. Yes, I still bring laundry to mom's house from time to time because she doesn't require $2.25 in hard to round up quarters like our ridiculous laundry room does. I collapsed into bed around 10:30 pm.
Sunday was also my big sister's B day. Poor thing is alone and in the middle of a very difficult pregnancy. Her hubby is actually out here on the West Coast for training. I wished her a Happy B Day and sent her some Mac items she wanted. Yes, I'm about broke. I have Mj's B day, Mom's day and Big Sis B day all within one week of each other. Oh, and car registration too. It's so worth it though when I find just the right thing and can make them happy.
