I never did a Mother's Day post

Monday, May 17, 2010

I mentioned that Mother's Day was lovely, but I never really said much about it. And I still won't, but I needed a small post for today as I have several thousand (perhaps an exaggeration, but I'll never tell) errands to run.

Brunch was had at Il Fornaio, a fancy Italian restaurant on the island of Coronado.  We got to have a private room in the back of it restaurant since we were 12 people (all my mom's immediate family), which was beautiful since the windows look out into the bay.  After we all went shopping together, which was interesting because I've never gone with my larger family.  Seeing my mom with her sisters is funny, since I rarely get to witness the sisterly dynamic.  I mean, she's a mom, not a sister!  We finished the day with just my parents, my brother and littlest cousin (he's 9) playing a few games of bowling, which was awesome.  I've been bowling since I was 4, and we used to go every single Saturday for 3 years so it was nice getting back to it.  Now it happens maybe once a month, but I love it still.  I'm a bit rusty, and I'd be lying if I said my bowling hand wasn't sore at the end, but nothing beats the sound of pin action, ball returns, and the utter disappointment when my dad still beats all of our scores.

And of course, I can't do a Mother's Day post without mentioning how fantastic my mom is. Of course I think she's the best mom in the entire universe, and I would fight to the death defending it.  There's nothing I could ever say to properly or accurately describe just how wonderful she is; so suffice to say, I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have her in my life.  There's no one else I'd rather scare me to pieces with a jack-in-the-box.

I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
