Without A Hitch!


Well Mother's Day was successful and did indeed, go off without a hitch! She got her nap, she went over to HER Mom's and Dad's gravesite. We ordered Outback for dinner, my Mom and I share the filet mignon, and we got it with salad with thousand island (I have such a craving for it lately!) and aussie fries. Plus they had cream of potato soup so we both got a cup. Mmmmm, it was so good! We had Munchkins for dessert and watched Bride Wars, my Mom loved it!!

Then we did presents...or lack thereof. Sam made her a card using stencils, it turned out so pretty. Katie gave her the envelope with the money for plants and flowers. She was like, you didn't have to give me money, just go with me, and we were all agreed. "We wanted you to HAVE something ON Mother's Day, that you could actually HOLD." I am happy to go with her, plant shopping, but not having special presents felt OFF. I gave her the card I got her, with my own special messages, and presented her with the video I made and posted here. I also gave her the lyrics to PUSH and highlighted the lines that made me think of her. She really liked it and I was so relieved, it is only the second time I have ever done that kind of thing and it was the first time I set it to a WHOLE song. So I had trouble. Especially when youtube and Blogger didn't like the format it was in. I had to look up help and figure out how you change it to wmv, etc. But, LOOK, I finally got it!!

Thanks for those who said I look like my Mom, I have a hard time seeing it sometimes, her being a petite brunette and be being a tall redhead. Me green-eyes, her brown-eyed. But that is such a compliment so thank you!

The movie, Shooting Star, was really cute. It had Kirby Heyborne's missionary companion from the Best Two Years. The cute one, who loses his faith and then regains it before he goes home. And the redhead chick from Singles Ward 2. So it makes me think a Mormon made it, but it never mentions the church so it is NOT by Halestorm, which is the company that does Singles Ward and The R.M., etc. I love those best...sure Kirby is in them, he is my Mormon crush, but they are also the most hilarious!! Seriously watch those and Sons of Provo, and Mobsters and Mormons, and Baptists at out Barbecue. All excellent! :)

I taped Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters, so I am off to watch those as soon as I leave my comments. Hope you all had a good day. And I know for some of you this day is a difficult one, right now. But I hope that someday soon, it will be a joyful day. And Congrats to my pregnant friends, especially the ones whose first Mother's Day, this was. *HUGS* to all!!

I watched Desperate Housewives tonight.
I swear, it keeps getting more and more complicated.

It's so funny to me that you and I both made videos for our moms!

I don't know that I'll be able to do the cleanse either...not for medical reasons but sheer will power. I didn't want to do it for 10 days but they say that that's how long it takes to flush everything out. I'm setting a date of June 1st. I am really wanting to Vlog about it daily (I'll need the distraction) but am not sure I know how to Vlog. Do I use my camera? I don't own a camcorder...

It sounds like you all had a great day--especially your mom!! And I LOVE Outback Steakhouse!! But I don't love steak--bleh. I love the cheese fries and Alice Spring's chicken. YUM!!

Hey you sweetheart. Thanks for caring about me, and checking in with me. I haven't been much of a blogger lately. Thanks for feeling so much compassion toward me as you read my post. I hurridly posted it and didn't explain it. I am glad that you enjoyed it in the end. Take care of you my dear friend. I do hope that all is well..♥
