so what's everyone doing/eating for mommy's day?
we are planning to head to the poconos for a day of painful outlet shopping. the last time we were there, we spent an eternity in shoe stores.
we were in dsw shoes so long that i mentioned to my boy that this was where evil men go when they die.
a nearby sales girl laughed so hard she fell out of her very low cut top.
i hope we go back.
i took my boy out shopping before practice tonight. i knew dw liked john hardy jewelry, so we hit up neiman marcus. i let the little guy pick out a bracelet and earrings. i think what he chose was really cool. since i've mentioned that my wife was my "moon and stars", a reference to the hbo series "game of thrones", i liked that he picked out a matching set that featured dragons and diamonds from the hardy naga lava collection. from now on, she'll be my "mother of dragons". i hope she likes them.
so anyway, we're heading to the poconos sunday, then out to our favourite bbq joint, big daddy's 2 family bbq in bartonsville.
they have GREAT bbq, really good french onion soup, awesome baked beans with big chunks of bacon, and delicious northern style cornbread with pecan butter.
i know this is all going over the top, but i have a reason. when my boy was born, we couldn't celebrate too much as my mil was dying. we were taking care of her at the time, so it was especially tough on dw, umm, my mother of dragons. my mil died 4 months later, so to me, mother's day is a big deal.
i feel badly to not spend the day with my own mother, but my sisters will he there, so i sent an edible arrangement for them all to enjoy (my mom says every mother's day, her house looks like funeral home with all of the flowers), so i sent the next best thing as far as a foodie goes. and we're going down next week with a bunch of frozen meals (pea soup, lamb stew, lasagna, etc.) so she won't have to cook so much, and we'll grill some lobster, shrimp and steaks - something my depression era parents would never splurge on, for our dinner.
anywho, what's everyone up to on sunday, mama's day.
my heart goes out to those who've moms have passed on. you will be in my thoughts and the full rosary that i say every mother's day.
but any special pans? what's on your menu?
