I got real lucky this year and had a double Mother's Day with my kiddos.
On the actual day my girlie took me out to brunch and shopping in the Orange Circle District.
It's one of the oldest communities in Orange County
 filled with cute eateries, boutiques and antique stores.
It's also a thriving college town filled with young people.
It's home to Chapman University,
a prestigious private college here 
where several of our Alumni have graduated from or are currently attending.
Right Shreya Sheth!  

Then last weekend both the kids were able to hang out and take me to brunch
at a very cool place for hipsters called Bosscat Kitchen and Libations in Newport Beach.
It was pretty much out of my comfort zone,
loud and trendy,
but my children loved it.
From there it was off to Rogers Gardens in Newport,
my all time favorite Nursery.
Because it's Spring,
the flowers were amazing as you can see.
And there was a Rose competition going on where we could vote for our favorites.

Mine were the Ketchup and Mustard Rose above and the Yellow Tea Rose below.
My son was able to stay into the evening and helped me plant all the lovelies we bought.
Thank you Dani and Zach for making Mother's Day so very special for me!
I love you both with all my heart.
