So much to discuss...

Happy belated Mother's Day to the most AMAZING woman I know!

I love that you are MINE! 
I was generic and unoriginal with this year's mother's day gift.  I went with perfume - Chloe Love
It smells wonderful and sweet, just like mi momma! 
And I just have to say, I LOVE NORDSTOM and their unmatched customer service! 
I wish I was rich and could shop their weekly, monthly, even bi-monthly... just more than I do now!

In other news, the verdict is out on Bottega Louie! While I understand the draw to this restaurant, it was definitely way too ZOOish for Shane and I.  Luckily we got a corner booth, so we were out of the chaos for the most part.  The service was fantastic, however for us the food left something to be desired.  I think it would be a better place to go with a group or while you are pregnant (lots of cute bellies around the place), so you can try more of a variety of food.  With just the two of us, we couldn't order much of a variety.  The scallops and our salad were good, but the seafood manicotti was overcooked and just sorta blah! Mas Malo across the street had a cool bar downstairs where we had a great time celebrating our dear friend's bday!  Happy 35th Nick! 

All in all the NEW Downtown LA is pretty cool, but I'm still a fan of the Westside (aka. the BEST side).  Staycations are the best! When it's time to go home, you're only 20 minutes away.  

Last night we watched Fair Game, definitely a great rental!  Starring Naomi Watts (love her) and a very old looking Sean Penn (I cannot believe Scarlett is dating him, eweee).  

Anyhooie Happy belated Mother's Day to all the mommies and mommy to be's in my life!
