A Little Celebration

My mom’s birthday was a success! The brother and I took her out for dinner at Peohe’s on Coronado Island. We knew it would be good because Peohe’s is a Chart House restaurant. It was dark by the time we got there so I felt kinda dumb taking pictures. So, my mom, brother, the pu-pu platter appetizer, my candied walnut salad, and crab-stuffed tilapia got no photo love, but I managed to get the one important picture.

My love for molten lava cakes knows no bounds.

I went to the restroom right as dessert was brought to the table and my brother waited for me to come back so I could take a picture for the blog. What a guy. Amirite? Although, he scolded me for my poor bathroom timing and even called my cell because I was not back to the table fast enough for him. This family does not mess around when it comes to dessert.

We sat outside by the water and had an awesome view of downtown San Diego that included some birthday fireworks!

Ok, maybe they were Labor Day fireworks. But probably most likely birthday fireworks.

We had a nice time and even took a walk on the pier afterwards. I was ready to hibernate for the winter after that meal but then I remembered how hot and muggy it is here with no winter in sight, so I just rolled around on the floor and complained about how full I was.

The next day, mom and I got birthday pedicures. She was basically in heaven.

Before we left, I told her I was thirsty and her response was, “want a Mudslide?”  It was 10 in the morning. <— I know, amazing  I love that all it takes to keep my mom happy is pretty toes, a full belly, and tons of booze.

    I agree with your brother. Who goes to the bathroom when dessert is coming? That is basically sacrilegious. (<–why is that word spelled that way?)

    Oh Mamabird and her LOLs. We <3 her.

    • I didn’t see it coming and then go to the bathroom. That is just crazy talk. It happened to come a few seconds after I had already gotten up. So, I’m kinda not at fault here. Kinda.
      And why IS that spelled that way?

    that is like my mom and her dang bloody mary’s, she drinks those things bright and early it seems like – i know they are meant to be an “early” drink, but i just cant do it.

    • I’m the same way! I can barely do a mimosa. I think that is the one thing that is keeping me from becoming an alcoholic as a career.

    Wow, you have a patient brother! My brother would’ve eaten the whole thing and claim it never came. 😉
