Me and Mom

Me and Mom, originally uploaded by A!ison.

My mom arrived in Orlando at 5AM. She took the red eye... yikes!

As soon as she got in the car, we headed to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. I loves me some Cracker Barrel biscuits! We ordered them with a side of their apple butter. It's to die for!

After breakfast we headed home and took a little cat nap. As much as she could have slept all morning, she knew it would be jetlag suicide so like a champ she got moving after only one hour of sleep.

First we went to Sears and returned the jacked up bed frame. Right inside the door she got to see her first Florida bug, the palmetto, err... it was inside so scratch that... it was a GIANT cockroach. The Sears associate called it "Florida's state bird".

After Sears we headed to Costco and got more teeth whitening. She knew I was in the middle of treatment and wanted to try it herself. We got a Costco hot dog for lunch. It was NOT the Costco hot dog I'm used to. A shame really.

After Costco we went to Ikea and got a sewing table. I'm very excited to sew with my mom while she is but I knew I needed something better than the awkward living room table I have been using.

After Ikea... yes, we drove all over town... we got a yummy soft serve ice cream. That seemed to pep her up. She felt like she was losing steam up to that point.

But even still....
We watched "Up"
We got the new table and sewing machine up and running
We ate at Five Guys
We had more soft serve AND
Treated our teeth to some whitening!

Let me tell you, she made it till 10:00 PM!!!! What a trooper!! We had done so much in the day that it already feels like she's been here awhile.

While she is visiting we don't plan to do much but spend time together. I'm sooooo happy that she is here.
