There's nothing like a mama-hug.
Adabella Radici

I'm so excited because I'm picking my mom up from the airport this morning for her stay until Monday! We have a busy weekend planned too. I'm used to Nick working all weekend so I usually tool around by myself so it's always nice to have some company and check out a few things on my list.

Here's our plan, I'll take any suggestions from St. Louisans too!


I work until 12 p.m. and then we're going to have lunch at the Boathouse in Forest Park then peek into the Jewel Box and see the Ansel Adams exhibit at the Saint Louis Art Museum.

That evening we're going to see Julie and Julia.


Breakfast at Spencer's Grill, hit the library and farmer's market and then go out to Historic Main Street in St. Charles.

That evening we're getting dinner somewhere (any suggestions in the Clayon, Central West End or Grand Center?) and then heading to the Fox Theater to see Mary Poppins. I cannot wait!


Mass at Cathedral Basilica Saint Louis so my mom can see it and then beignets at Cafe Ventana. I think we may also stop by a greyhound rescue meet and greet so my mom can meet so people and pups from the rescue I've been working with here.

We may go see another movie or just relax at home that evening.

Hope you all have a fun weekend too!
