DINNER & MOVIES WITH MOM

As a birthday gift to me, my mom wanted to take me out to dinner and a movie. Just her and I alone. YOU KNOW I took that opportunity to have a nice, quiet dinner! I chose to eat at Giorgio's Italian Restaurant, and once again, their food did not disappoint! Just their warm bread and garlic butter alone is a treat! I had a great time with her although she could tell I was PMS'ing at first! Heehee. Mom's always understand, and my mom has a way of overlooking my "moods."

Here's my mom with her FIRST Italian Soda! I couldn't believe she never tried one before! I told her it was similar to a Shirley Temple!

Here's my mom's entree. I forget the name of it, but it had a variety of seafood over linguini with red cream sauce! She ate the entire bowl...it was THAT good!

Now, you may think I'm weird for ordering something basic. I didn't order any pasta dishes. Just that day, I bought Fettucini Alfredo for my kids so I was not craving for pasta at all. I opted for a good ole' sausage calzone. It was really tasty, but since I was so full from the bread, I had half of it left over. When I got home, my kids devoured it like they hadn't eaten in a week!

After dinner, we headed straight over to the theater to see this movie...
It was cute and hilarious at the same time. If you are a Sandra Bullock fan, then you will totally enjoy this romantic comedy!

Thanks again, mom, for the dinner and movie!! I love you!

Happy Happy Birthday!
What a great present from your Mom. The food looks so wonderful. I went to see that movie and though it was great!

mother goose said...

i love that you and your mom had a special day and that she understood your pmsing in the beginning. I hope I can grow to be a mom like that, because currently with a teenage daughter and a tween, I'm not so good at understanding their pms!

I am a sandra fan. I was wondering if this would be good or not, thanks for the review!!
And lastly but certainly not least,
HAPPY FREAKING BIRTHDAY!

Hi... I'm so behind on blog reading! Just came over to catch up a little. Sorry I missed your Birthday. Sounds like you had a really great one with good company, great food and a good movie!

That was cute that your picture was all out of whack from your friend. At least you've got it to fix up once your computer is up and running again!

Have a good week! Linda from Corgi Country and Proverba-A Bible Study
