Lucky Girl

I'm a lucky girl. I have the best mom. If you've been around here for awhile you know it's no secret how much she means to me.

We took her out to brunch yesterday. It was supposed to be a surprise... but she kept ruining it!! I told her I wanted to do some shopping with her (which was true anyway) so the plan was for me to pick her up after I got done at the gym and then Josh would call to tell me he needed us to run by Toast to meet a friend who had some bike tires he was going to borrow... and then when we got to Toast we'd just meet up with Josh instead and SURPISE! have brunch!

Buuuut... of course mom had a "late breakfast" so she wasn't very hungry to begin with and then once we got to Toast she didn't want to go inside, she just wanted to wait in the car for me while I got the tires!!! I finally just had to say "Mom! We are trying to have brunch with you for Mother's Day... get out and come inside!!!!" 

In the end, it all worked out and we enjoyed a nice little surprise brunch with my momma!

We tried to get Josh's mom to come too, but she already had plans for the morning so we took her out on a surprise dinner instead. I'm a lucky girl (again!) because I love Josh's mom!! She's awesome and I'm thankful that I not only get along with Josh's family but like them, too ;)

We went to La Rosita, where I had the BIGGEST taco salad I have ever seen. Behold:

I think I ate about 1/16th of it.

Then we ventured "up the hill" for ice cream.

Polly's Freeze has the BEST flurries ever! The ice cream to chunk ratio is perfect. SO SO SO GOOD! It had been a long winter without it!!!

Today we have a cookout planned for dinner to honor all the momma's in the family... however, check out the forecast:

Awesome. And just my luck. I think it rains every time I try to plan something outdoors.

Oh well! We'll be surrounded by loved ones eating good food, and that's all that matters right?!

Happy Mother's Day to all you momma's out there! Go love on your momma!
