Mother's Day, 70s era Italian and ugly hats.

Happy Mother's Day everyone. I took my mother out for lunch and saw her new apartment. It's in a very interesting building that is best described as 70s era Italian. There's a lot of brown and ornate gold colored things. There's also a fountain in the lobby.

Here's my lovely mother by the fountain.

When she first moved she had a hard time. She was leaving the last home she lived in with her boyfriend before he passed away. It will be one year in July since his passing. The home they were living in was his so she had to move once he passed. I told her that it will take some time for the new place to feel like "home". She does have some of his furniture and art work so there is some familiarity.

We went out for lunch and some shopping. I got a belt and I'm sure Derek is saying "finally!". I was getting tired of my pants falling down all the time but was having a hard time finding a belt that I liked and that fit.

We tried on some ugly hats. I mean seriously who would buy these? It's a bit hard to see but my hat has a rhinestone crown on it.

I also got some new sneakers. Bright pink laces? SOLD. I've been trying to walk more, get that old exercise in and my old sneakers were a little past their prime.

So that was my Mother's Day. Now it's time to start doing laundry and packing for Vegas!!! I'm so excited for vacation!


  1. Your mom looks like fun, I love her dress. Looks like you two had a nice Mother's Day.

  2. My goodness! That is an ornate fountain. Well, it looks well kept-up, so that's the main thing.

    Your mother is a pretty lady. You can tell her that I said so. :-)
