We were pretty lazy Saturday morning, Eric just bought the new Legend of Zelda game for the Wii, so he's been playing it quite a bit. We left to run some errands & then met my mom, grandma, and Lauren at Olive Garden in Utica Square for our Mother's Day lunch. We do it on Sat. to avoid the crowds on Sun. since my grandma is in a wheelchair, its just easier. Lauren, mom & my grandma all got a peach bellini, which was hilarious! It was a great meal as always!
We shopped around Utica Square a while (I don't go there without some shopping!) :) and then went on back home. I took a nap with Capone and we decided to stay in that night. We ordered a pizza and watched The Reader, our latest Netflix delivery. I had been wanting to see it because I really like Kate Winslet, but it was interesting, not quite what I was expecting. Interesting enough story, but we could've done without the multiple scenes of nakedness!
Made it to church this morning and then picked up Camille's for lunch and went to my grandma's to do the Mother's Day gifts. We started my mom a Pandora charm bracelet, they are so fun! So we are trying to build up her charm collection.
A jewelry store in Utica Square has all of their charms & accessories, J. Spencer.
Eric got mom an Obama Mother's Day card--mainly because he knows she can't stand him so he thought it was pretty hilarious :)
We got my grandmother some more books (she reads like crazy) and mom got her a prayer box bracelet that was really cute.
Lauren was in the middle of studying for her test, so she was able to come by for a while, but had to leave a little earlier.
Here are some pics from the afternoon:

Happy Mother's Day to all, I hope you have a wonderful day! I am especially grateful for my mom & grandmother--who will be 90 this year. They are both the epitomy of who I can only hope to be like. My mom has done the ultimate & works a full time job, plus takes care of my grandmother. She basically has 2 jobs! She has unbelievable patience, is always kind & understanding, even though the stress of it gets to her sometimes. She does an amazing job. They are both a true example of Proverbs 31.
Eric's mom, Bonnie, is in Tucson, but we sent her flowers & talked to her a long time Friday night. She is very active & busy and doing well. We are looking forward to visiting her & Eric's stepdad in Santa Fe in June.
Thank you for being the perfect examples of what a mother should be! We Love You!!

Saturday we had breakfast at La Madeline and I got a crepe, which took me back to my crepe addiction while we were in Paris....
We went on into Dallas and shopped for a bit in Highland Park not far from our hotel. I wanted to go in Anthropologie, one of my favorite stores that I wish Tulsa had! We ate at Corner Bakery & then right across from it was Sprinkles Cupcakes, which of course was on our list of stops :) I had a Red Velvet one & Eric had chocolate on chocolate. They were so good & I really wish I owned the place :)
We were going to go see King Tut, but it was too expensive for our taste & we weren't all that interested anyway. So we went across the street to the Sculpture Museum, pretty neat. I enjoyed the garden area & the weeping willow trees :)
As we were about to leave, it started pouring outside, we were parked about 4 blocks away. It was a crazy storm. So we bought an umbrella in the gift shop & made our way to the car, laughing most of the way & getting soaked! Headed back to the hotel where I took a nap & then we got ready for the wedding. It was at an Episcopal church & then the reception was at a place called 7 Senses. Really neat place, artsy, fun furniture. They had a live band that was really good, and the food was great. We enjoyed the grilled cheese :) Here are some pics from the event:
Last we made a stop at Nordstrom Rack (I so wish we had in Tulsa also!), then I had to drop Eric off at DFW for a work trip he had to take. It was a tiring drive home, but a great weekend!!!!
