A Big Celebration

Yesterday, my mom had a milestone birthday. The big 5-0 and looking not a day over 29! ;) The celebration was low-key since about a month ago she visited her mother's home country, Puerto Rico, with her sisters as a birthday trip.
My aunts and mother are the 3 in the middle
My grandmother (her mother) passed away when I was a baby and it was so great that she was finally able to visit family and experience Puerto Rico.

Church where my grandmother was baptized in Puerto Rico
To keep the celebration going one last day my mom, sister, and I headed to Butter Cafe for brunch. 

Though the local business is fairly close to me, I had not eaten there before today. I've heard great things and what I really love about it is that they buy ingredients locally. Fresh, organic, local fare--you can't beat that!
The place is charmingly decorated and everything you would expect from a small bakery/cafe. To start we all had some hot, fair-trade coffee and put in our breakfast orders. 
My mom and sister had omelets and I had--wait for it...Chai Tea French Toast!
Talk about a winning breakfast! This decadent french toast was dipped in a chai latte custard, grilled until golden brown, and layered with creamy marscapone cheese to which I topped off with some maple syrup.
We ate, chatted, and sipped coffee until our stomachs could hold no more and then headed out for a quick stop at only my favorite place to run an errand!
If you caught me on Facebok yesterday, you've already read about how wonderful my mom is. But I could never say it enough so I'll say it again! 
My mother is a selfless, gracious woman whom I love and look up to dearly. I couldn't ask for a better example of a mother and I am so blessed to call her my mom! Happy Birthday, Mom! I hope you've enjoyed all of your celebrations.

    Share! I am also a surgeon, blue error that can not
    be denied health care because nike free 5.0 womensof management
    problems of effort, but the reaction of the blue medical corruption can you deny it?
    As peers, we spent too much torment and bullying,
    I wish you happy , normal life!


    That nike free run 4.0the hospital does not have the right to call
    Mianyang City People's Hospital, Fucheng District, Mianyang
    City People's Hospital Health Bureau to determine the name is right.
    Because nike free run 4.0it
    is alleged Mianyang City in 1985 before the county-level city under the jurisdiction is now Fucheng District and
    Youxian. The Mianyang City since 1985 designated as the prefecture-level cities,
    the original Mianyang County is the county-level city was renamed in Central City, naturally
    it will be immediately replaced by hospitals District
    nike free run 3People's Hospital, but it did not change the cheek ,
    still follow the original name and confuse. Later in Central City and is divided into
    Fucheng District and Youxian, the hospital owned
    by the government and Fucheng District Health Board jurisdiction, there is no Youxian County
    hospital. So, the hospital can hang Fucheng District People's
    Hospital, People's Hospital and Youxian brand, but can not hang nike free run 2Mianyang
    City People's Hospital brand. This phenomenon should be unique in the country, and I hope governments adhere to the principle of maintaining the right decisions Municipal Health Bureau.

    Recommend Mianyang Central Hospital of Mianyang City People'
    s Hospital by hanging sign, Central Hospital is truly the People's Hospital of Mianyang City.
