Happy Birthday MOM

Yesterday, my sister and I took our mom out to eat and shopping for her birthday. She really enjoyed it and we did too. We went to Don's Seafood in Hammond, La.
We love their seafood gumbo and hush puppies. It was a perfect day for gumbo and a perfect day to spend with Mama. It was just a little bit cool outside. I love this time of year.

Mom and Melinda. We took her shopping after we ate and we had so much fun! They just built a new shopping center in Hammond with so many new stores. Mom had never been in a TJMaxx before. She was amazed! We bought her a purse that she liked and some earrings. She bought herself an outfit and some boots.

The day went by way too fast. We will be doing this again soon.
Happy 60th birthday Mom. We love you!!!

Thank you so much for coming by my blog and leaving a sweet comment about my post.
I had to come by and see your post about your mom. It reminded me so much of my mom and sister. The three of us loved spending time together. I was just thinking today how I will miss Christmas shopping with her. I took my boys to Cracker Barrel to eat lunch today and I couldn't hardly control the tears. She loved to eat there. And she would always buy me something in the gift shop. Treasure every moment with your mom. It's never the same when they are gone.
Give her a big hug and kiss from me too!
Blessings,
Traci

Dear Lee Laurie,
I wish your Mom a very Happy Birthday ~ a day late!
You and your sister look just like your Mom!
I love gumbo and hush puppies. When my daughter was little she asked me if they killed puppies to make them. She has never tried one and still refuses.
Many Blessings dear friend...
Hugs))

How fun! My sister lives in Hammond and I have to say they have just about the best food around. Lots of great places to eat in Hammond, and Don's is one of our faves. Have you ever eaten at La Caretta (mexican) or Tommy's Pizza? I would drive the 2 hours just to eat at either of them...yummy!

Happy Birthday to your sweet Mom. She and her daughters are just beautiful!
