Since Hubby is in the restaurant business we never get to go out actually on Mother’s Day because it’s always one of the biggest days of the year for them. Instead we went out last night for a combination Mother’s Day/Cinco de Mayo Celebration.
Neither of us had eaten breakfast since we went down to the DMV and then we went straight to the movies afterwards so we didn’t eat lunch either. We ended up going to see Water For Elephants which I was Jonesing to go see since I had heard they were making the movie. I had read the book when it first came out and fell completely in love with it. I loved it so much that when it ended I wanted to cry not just because of the ending but because it was over and I had fallen so completely in love with the main characters that I wanted it to keep going. Have you ever had that happen reading a book? Maybe I’m weird but it happens to me all the time.
Anyway, I loved the movie too. I felt it very closely followed the book (for the most part) and I think that Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson did an outstanding job bringing their characters to life.
After the movie we were both really hungry so we went to one of our new favorite restaurants, Blue Agave. Since it was only about 4:00 we were afternoon the lunch rush and had beat the dinner rush. I saw one of our old neighbors tonight and she said they tried to go around 6:00 and the wait was way over an hour. I had to smile at our good fortune for getting there early.
I got a medium margarita again even though I said I would get the small next time and since I hadn’t eaten it went straight to my head. I think the combination of not having eaten and just being older… it doesn’t take much for me anymore. I came home and had to take a nap!
I went to a Pampered Chef party tonight so by the time I got home hubby was home and there on the counter was a dozen roses and a bag of mini snickers (not that I need those) and a really cute card. I have such a sweet hubby. I am so lucky and I do know that and appreciate it. Thank you baby. You are the greatest!
I know this is shorter than normal but I have to run now so I can help hubby roll silverware for Mother’s Day…. There’s a price for everything! 🙂
