|Opening her Mother's Day gift|
The best gifts are ones that you already know someone wants but won't buy for themselves. When we were shopping in LA last month we went into Victoria's Secret. My mom tried on a Navy Blue "Pink" sweater but didn't get it because it was "too expensive." When she opened her gift she was so surprised to see that very same sweater she left on the rack. It felt really good to give it to her. I loved her reaction. I knew she would be surprised. She started opening it and I said wait and ran to get my camera. They are so cute I had to get one for myself.
|Pancho's Surprise // No surprise that this was delicious|
For lunch we went to Anita's Mexican Restaurant. We used to go to there all the time when I was a kid. It's been a really long time since I've been. It will probably be a while before I go again so for sentimental reasons I had to get Pancho's surprise. I think it's the only thing I've ever ordered there. It's this sloppy cheesy bean filled chicken enchilada. Yum! Just as good as I remembered. The restaurant is right by the beach so we took a walk over there afterwards. The thing about the beach is that even if it's 80-90 degrees everywhere else that good weather doesn't always make it to the coast. The sun was trying to break through but there was too much cloud cover and it was mostly chilly and grey. There were all these crazy people getting in the water and laying out in bikini's. Didn't they notice the sun was missing? I was freezing in my skirt and tank top and I wasn't even wet.

|One non mom and two moms|
She gifted herself with a really cool Mother's Day gift last week. A brand spanking new oh so cute Mini Cooper. It's on my dream car but probably won't happen for another 5 years or so if ever list. My sister and I test drove it. I loved it and so does my mom. It's about time she finally got a car that she REALLY wants and not something she settled for or got stuck with because my dad picked it out.
|Mom and her Mini|
I have a great mom. She is selfless when it's easier to be selfish. So often she puts others needs in front of her own. She is kind, fun to be with and is the best mom I could ever ask for. I feel very fortunate to have her for a mother and am so grateful for the close relationship that we have. Sometimes I really wish I could do more for her. She's worked hard all of her life. If I was rich I would buy her a house, tell her to go on vacation and enjoy the rest of her life without worries because she deserves it. I didn't buy my mom a Mini Cooper for Mother's Day but I really wish I could have.
