|elmo is her copilot|
First things first, because it seems to be the thing that mom's like most about Mother's Day, Joe did let me sleep in on Saturday and Sunday while he fed Sisi her breakfast. I guess I'm spoiled because he ALWAYS lets me sleep in on Saturday. Don't be jealous!
We celebrated with my mom on Saturday, and enjoyed a pungent lunch at Garlic Joe's. I broke my diet for this dessert platter (which included mounds of garlic ice cream ;) I highly recommend this place- it's creative and super affordable, considering it's high-end location on PCH next to a Masserati dealer.
and then we headed off to brunch at Capital Grille in South Coast Plaza. The buffet was spectacular, with mimosas and seafood galore. Buffets are awesome because us paleo folks can always find something yummy to fill our plates with. I did break my diet for the cheesecake and fudge cookies.
We came home, and I crafted in front of Mad Men on netflix for a few hours, then hit the hay around 10pm.
Joe didn't really get me a gift or anything, which sort of peeved me for about 5 minutes, but I got over it. I get to stay home every day with my little one while he works to support our family. He makes me coffee every morning, does the night-night routine every night, and is in general a fantastic hubby and daddy. Basically, every day feels kinda like Mother's Day. But don't think I'm not going online right now to buy myself a present :) See ya!
