Happy Sunday! I hope you all had wonderful weekends and that you were able to spend some time with Mom today!

My dad and I took my mother out for an early brunch at The Cheesecake Factory. Eggs Benedict and a mimosa for me, crab hash and a Bloody Mary for my mom and a pinwheel of French toast for my dad. (I took pictures but I'll spare you this time.) The meal was delicious but the portions were huge as usual, leaving us (especially me!) sleepy for the rest of the day. (I had to grab a grande iced vanilla latte at Starbucks at 3 p.m. just to wake myself up!)

For gifts, my dad got my mom a 1 lb. box of marzipan from See's. (Her favorite candy.) And I got her a new pair of summery, sparkly sandals. They matched the dress she wore to breakfast so she slipped them on the moment she took them out of the shoebox... I guess she liked them! Success!

After a long nap (I told you I was tired!), my parents fixed my car (read: they topped off the coolant once again since no matter how many times we take it in, that gosh darn light keeps coming on, and then replaced the bulb in my brake light so I won't get pulled over) and then I played some old school arcade games with my brother, Patrick, and his friend, Adam. We played a bit of Geometry Wars, Sonic the Hedgehog and Mortal Combat. It was fun but I remember kicking so much more ass at these games when I was younger! I guess I'll have to practice :)

So that's my weekend-- well, Sunday-- recap. How was yours?

Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!


P.S. On Friday night we went to see Iron Man 2. It was fabulous, just as good as the first if not better! And RDJ-- Robert Downey Jr., that is-- is so funny! I love him as the cocky Tony Stark. And I might just have a girl crush on Scarlett Johansson. She is just so gorgeous! I hate her and love her at the same time! No one should look that good in a cat suit.

Happy Mom's day to your mom. Oh yeah, I saw Iron Man 2 last week too. Scarlett Johansson looked great in that movie. And gosh, did you see how small her waist looked?! Man, I need to get back to the gym. =)

I love sonic and mortal combat! I used to beat EVERYONE at Mortal Combat but not so much these days. Still fun to play though!

My weekend was good thanks for asking :) We had sing alongs with our friend Alex, went on a dinner/bolwing date and relaxed with some beers. I didnt get to see my mom though, but we did talk on the phone for awhile!

See's makes marzipan? Where has this been my whole life!

And there's no need to apologize for food pictures. Sometimes they're my favorite part of a post

I agree! Iron Man 2 was pretty terrific. I thought they could have turned up the fight scenes just a notch, but otherwise, great comic turned blockbuster movie. there isn't anyone else that could pull off tony stark the way RDJ does...and his cockiness pretty much made the movie. And, yes, I agree, Scarlett was pretty badass. Her fight scene was awesome.

I'm glad you had a wonderful mother's day, btw!

I LOVE Robert Downey Jr. And The Cheesecake Factory, actually. :)

Sounds like you had a lovely Mother's Day celebration with your parents! Very cool :)

And yes, Scarlett Johnasson = hot in that movie. Yes indeedy.

Um, yum? :)

Also, I have the EXACT same coolant problem. I swear I've had it "fixed" three times, and yet there is a continual coolant leak. Doesn't it drive you insane? That pesky little light is always staring you in the face...

And, yes. Scarlett Johansson is my girl crush, too. Gorg! But, I really hate when she's referenced as "curvy". Pleeeeease. Being a size 4-6 isn't curvy, folks!

Aw, hope you had a lovely mother's day! And let me know how Iron Man 2 was!

Sooo jealous of your Cheesecake Factory trip! That's an adorable picture of you two!

Thanks for your sweet comment about my Nikki the other day.
