Well my post today was going to be about the amazing fish tacos we devoured last night, but I was too full and sleepy to type, so you’ll have to wait a day! The recipe will come to you with edits from me (of course), but originated on Food Network — The Kitchen. LOVE that show and the hosts.
Anyway, the day to honor us moms is about on us, so I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you to MY mom, Colleen.
I’m not even going to tell you how old she is, because it doesn’t make a diff. She’s a feisty devil, and this apple didn’t fall far from the tree. She lives in a residential care center and is THE social butterfly! Her best friend, Hazel, is 103 and just like her. They are extremely ornery and usually doing something they shouldn’t. They are a pair!
Mothers Day does makes me a bit sad, because it reminds me that I cannot celebrate Fathers Day with my Dad. Unfortunately he passed in 2001, but it’s pics like this that bring back such fond memories. My parents have always ADORED my kids, as you can tell from this picture:
Note that Brandi appears to have a swimsuit on — my dad taught them both to swim in their pool.
So, hats off to all of you Moms out there, and I hope you are loved up by those around you! If you cannot see your mom this weekend, call her while you can. Life is toooo short!
Tune in this weekend for those fish tacos!
