No one likes to wait 2 hours for a table. That’s what happened last year, so we decided to celebrate Mother’s Day on Saturday to beat the crowds. We went to my all time favorite breakfast place la Note in Berkeley. We sat outside on the patio and though it wasn’t exactly warm the weather was still nice enough to enjoy the outdoors. Ava Blu thoroughly enjoyed her Strawberry Steamer (notice her manicure – purple nail polish with white tips!! A very specific request that was very hard for me to paint with such wiggly hands. The things we do for love. :) and I had les Oeufs Lucas (Two eggs lightly scrambled with goat cheese, chives, served with roasted tomatoes) which are about the fluffiest eggs I’ve ever tasted. If you live in the Bay Area you have to try this place. (but definitely be prepared to wait)
This had to be one of the first weekend I didn’t work in a really loooooog time. It felt really good to take some time to relax and enjoy my family. But I have to admit I also felt a bit guilty. I did check the occasional email and wrote a to-do list or two, but it was pretty minimal. I still have a bunch of little things to do before the show, that hopefully I’ll be able to to get all wrapped up between today and tomorrow. But all in all, I feel strangely calm. Definitely not as nervous as I was last year, more like waiting for the excitement to kick in. Just as long as I survive the flight and don’t get too jet-lagged. Have you been listening to all the craziness that has been happening with flying lately? I woke up this morning, to the radio talking about a man storming the cockpit on a flight to SFO last night. The flight attendant, with the help of some passengers were able to subdued the man. This is not the kind of stuff you want to hear before you’re about to fly across the country. I find it a bit terrifying and am trying really hard not to think about. So, for right now I’m thinking good thought and am getting ready to see my LIDL ladies!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s out there!
