"Mama always said..."

My husband and my son took me to the brand new, "Bubba Gump Shrimp Co." restaurant last night to celebrate Mother's Day.

There are 4 reasons I'm posting this story on this blog and not on the baby blog...I do realize this is a bit more of a baby-blog post.

Reason #1
This guy...
I'm a mommy now, and this is my blog. You don't need a reason, "because I said so" will do.

Reason #2
To give you a small cultural lesson. We went to celebrate on Saturday night. Why? Because malls and shopping centers are the last place on earth you want to be on any given Sunday here. People come out in droves every Sunday. Also, today, Sunday, is Mother's Day here too. So, just like in the states where restaurants are extra-crowded because Mom's everywhere take the day off from cooking- so therefore the family takes her out to eat because no one else can cook like mom- the same thing happens here too. So in order not to have to wait an hour and a half for a table, we went on Saturday.
Reason #3
Seriously people. Granted we call our city "Asia lite" because its very western in so many ways. But having a McDonalds (even a Wendy's which also opened this past month) and having a Bubba-Gump are two completely different things. And what's even better is that the Bubba-Gump is right next door to my other favorite restaurant- Paddington House of Pancakes.
Reason #4
My son (in collaboration with his dad) already posted a Mother's Day post on the baby blog. Speaking of other Mother's Day posts... you MUST check out my sister's blog. Her kids are way cute and her blog post is proof. Drop her a comment and tell her I sent you!Thanks to my hubby and my little man for making me feel so special! (I got a pedicure afterwards too!) I'm SOOOO blessed to be a mommy!

I love the picture where it looks like Isaac is staring at your plate wondering why you're not sharing. :) He's too cute! Motherhood suits you well... you look amazing.
