Really Bad Coffe, A Horse's Hindend, And My Mama

My Mom recently had a Birthday. (If by recently you mean January 29, and I have been too busy with school, and work, and everything else to celebrate it with her) So, yesterday I finally had the time to take her out. We went shopping, and to our favorite place to eat.

Seriously, if you like Chinese food, and there is one in your area I STRONGLY urge you to go! They have the best food, they completely knock the buffets out of the park! However the coffee? well I'll tell you about that in a minute...
Going into the restaurant they have this beautiful statue. I'm not very sure what the significance of it is, but its beautiful none-the-less. (Good time to mention here, if you take a look at that sky it was COLD that day friends, C-O-L-D!
They give you these beautiful sauces to put on your meals. The Waiter/waitress always mixes you up their creation of sauce. The one our waiter made for us was really really good!
You get your choice of white or brown rice. I always choose white.

We had a beautiful meal together.

I am really really bad to want a cup of coffee after I eat. I think it makes your tummy feel really good after you eat, and makes your food settle better.

So, we ordered a cup of coffee. I took one sip and about died! It was the worst thing I've ever put in my mouth! We had asked the waiter to bring us a new cup thinking that maybe it was just old. So he brought us the new cups...

Still pretty bitter...
After much "doctoring" ....
It was still really, really bad coffee. Actually I have had gas station coffee that was better than that! I can't even describe...BAD!
So after the great meal, and much overdue mother/daughter time it was time to go catch a movie. We went to go see "Dear John" and let me tell you that is a GREAT movie! I laughed (mostly at my Mom, but there are funny parts to the movie as well), I cried, I couldn't peel myself away! Which turned out to be very inconvenient because midway through the movie I had to pee. Bad. I squiggled and squirmed but I toughed it through.
And as I go, I will leave you with the view when you leave the restaurant. Really poor design if you ask me! Someone really did not think this through!
Happy Birthday! I wanted you to know that I had the best time with you! I am so blessed that God chose you to me my Mother, and I can't thank you enough for everything you do for me, Stacee, and Michele! You are the best Mom anyone could ask for and I hope you had as much fun as I did.

Jennifer, you will never know how much it meant to me to spend the day with you. My daughter, my friend. Gifts are good but time and memories are more precious than gold. I am so blessed to have you, Stacee, and Michele as my daughters. I can only hope and pray daily that God will see fit for all of you girls to have the same God given relationship with your children as I do you with you all. If not for you all and your Daddy I would be nothing but instead I am a round, onery, moody, grandmother to 3 of the most beautiful grandchildren God could have blessed me with.

Again I want to say thank you for my date with my bestest friend, I loved our time getting our eyebrows waxed, eating at PF Chang's, and the enduring movie of "Dear John". All I ask is you pay it forward and DON'T EVER BUY THAT COFFEE AGAIN!!!!!!!

I Love you my sweet baby girl,
Mom aka Nana

There's a P.F. Changs in ATL that has the same horse statue sitting outside it, right outside the mall, so not only when you leave the restaurant but the mall itself you get a nice shot of the hiney on the way out.

It looks like you and your mom had a great birthday celebration (excluding the coffee, of course)!
