Mom's Weekend ...


Somehow, no matter where we are or what we are doing my mom and I always seem to work getting a coffee into the equation. It's our favorite thing to do. Have a bad day? Let's go get a coffee. Have a good day? Let's go get a coffee! You get the idea. To this day my mom still slips me a $20 for no good reason. She would still do this guaranteed if I won the lottery tomorrow. One Christmas she added chili pepper decorations to my gifts because I was such a Red Hot Chili Peppers fan. She even quietly told herself it was a phase when I decided to announce that I was in love with Robert Smith from The Cure (my parents didn't get it, I wasn't even goth) and let it pass on its own. It did.

But the day I realized that my mom's love and protection was on another level was when she told me that when I would go out with my friends at night or I would have to work late she would pray to God that any potential perpetrator would always see me in a group. Never alone. Especially when I'd have to walk to my car by myself. How awesome is that?! You're the greatest mom, I love you!

P.S. don't forget to watch/record SNL tomorrow night. Betts and Hov are going to raise the roof! Have a fabulous weekend everyone and Happy Mother's day to all you moms and mom-to-be's!
