A wonderful day!

Pin It Now!

I hope all the mothers out there had a wonderful day yesterday!  My daughter and I drove to visit my son, who is about 1 1/2 hours away.  We had a wonderful lunch with him and his girlfriend and I had the best sandwich ever! It was a rosemary flank steak sandwich with blue cheese! YUMMY!!  Lauren found her favorite cookie, vanilla meringues, in pastel colors!  They are perfect with the coffee that my son gave me for Mother's Day.  We are both coffee lovers so he gave me a bag of some special coffee beans from a local roaster he recently found. 
How was your Mother's Day?

Oh my goodness, that sandwich sounds heavenly!!! Pioneer Woman has a recipe for steak in a bleu cheese sauce that I keep meaning to make. My stomach is growling now.

I'm glad you had a lovely Mothers Day!!!

I had a wonderful day and learned that my youngest son, my baby, got his dream job at Apple. He and his girlfriend will be making the move from Seattle in about a month. You know what this means? It means I can come and visit one of my favorite areas frequently or at least semi frequently. It also means I will need lots of tips as to where to wander...all those fun places you go. Maybe I will even get to meet some of my California blog friends;) I am delirious.

My blog is currently under construction because the same son decided I needed a dot com. Hope it is up and running soon, but you can message me on facebook or sent me an email at janetmagina at comcastdot net.

Hi Cindy:

I'm glad you've spent a Happy Mother's Day with your children, Congratulations.

You like coffee?, Since we export the best coffee in the world, because you send me your address and I send you bags of coffee. No kidding, let me your address and you'll be sent bags of coffee.
Greetings from Costa Rica.

I had a wonderful mothers day! My kids actually baked me muffins, and I got breakfast in bed. We went to church and had a wonderful service there. After church, I received lovely cards and lunch at my favorite restaurant! I had chicken salad, hot croissants and potato soup with green onions, bacon and cheese on top! Yum, yum! Later on that night my guys gave me three different kinds of Ghiradelli chocolate...HEAVEN! :-) Couldn't have asked for a nice day. I'm glad your day was equally as wonderful!

LOL Darlene

Oh, such pictures! I wish I were there, just beautiful. It was a great Mother's Day here too! We are from St. Louis but I spent Mother's Day with my kids on a Florida beach!

Kathy said...

Your Mother's Day sounds wonderful! It is such a blessing to be a mother, and too when your children grow, have their own lives, but still come back to be with you.
God is so good,

What a sweet Mother's Day you had. It was a hard one for me as I just lost my Mom two weeks ago. It was great to be with my hubby, sons, and my Daddy.

Have a lovely week!

Mother's Day was great. I got to be with my Mom and two of my three daughters. They gave me the cutest scrap book with plenty of old and new pictures. Starbucks card was a nice extra.

OK, I put coffee water on my violets today at work. I'll see what happens. Thanks for the tip.

I am so glad you had such a lovely day! The pastel meringues with your beautiful mug made such a beautiful photo! I can almost smell the coffee! I took my Mom out for a full day of shopping & lunch in historic Waxahachie, TX, and we had a beautiful day. We shopped from 9 am until 9 pm & enjoyed every minute!

Thanks for such a beautiful blog! Patti in Texas

Here we call the meringues "sigh".
It reminds me that the last time I ate sigh was a few years ago.
