After we bailed from the festival with Laurel wearing a plush monkey hat (will post a photo soon, it's hilarious), a bunch of adorable bows for Laurel from My Little Lady Bug and some neat wooden roses, we hit Uncle Julio's.
Two things about Uncle Julio's:
- It's louder than hell on a Saturday night;
- They still have amazing service when they're down a server and the waitress for our area was covering at least a dozen tables. Props to John the manager for taking our order and making sure we got our check when we were done.
I failed to get the Mother's Day cards out on time, but I did locate Laurel's spring school photos to print and include in them so it's not a wash. My immediate gratification Mother's Day gift was a chair massage at Taste Addison; in the next week or so my gift will arrive -- a pair of Teva Pretty Rugged Leather 2 sandals to replace my well-worn 4-year-old pair. (And to appeal to my thrifty side, I had a 20% off coupon from REI.)
