A Pleasant Day

I just went on a three-day trip to So Cal. for Mother's Day.

We went all over - from Seal Beach to Huntington Beach to Newport Beach.  Nel and Jess prepared a tea party brunch for me with the most delicious appetizers.

We did some shopping and saw the sites around town.  We went into a purple shop, and they even had purple teddy bears!

Nel and Jess found a few goodies for themselves.

I always enjoy myself when I visit So Cal., and it was a pleasant three-day trip.

I'm not a big fan of flying, but I don't mind it cause we get to our destination in half the time that it would take driving.

What about you?
Do you mind flying?

I like flying but it's not my better moment!How wonderful are your girls and this little escape must have been so enjoyable!
Many hugs from here,

Oh Sherri, how special - your girls are so pretty and they must take after their mom. Looks like you had a wonderful brunch with all that wonderful food - yum yum.
I used to fly alot with my job but since I am retired now I don't because its not fun anymore - they treat you like your on a cattle car.
When I go up to my son's I'd rather drive take about the same amount of time and I'm not squeezed into a seat that I can't move around in. I am planning on a trip to VA but not getting excited about flying.
So glad you had a wonderful mothers day.

Hi Sheri,you have a new header right? It is very nice, again with a red rose :). You lucky girl had a fantastic mother's day with your pretty daughters! Looks like you had a lot of fun!
My girls also surprised me with a flower bouquet and breakfast at home with huge variety to choose from! It was a nice day...
Concerning flying I really love it, it is so exciting to get up into the air.
Have a nice week Sheri, Barbara


That food looks delicious. I'm glad you had a nice time. Sounds like a fun filled weekend.

Hi Sheri, what a special time with your girls. They took such precious care of you for Mother's Day. The treats, shopping and just being together make for the perfect day.
I don't mind flying, I say a little prayer ahead and another when I land. God takes care of the rest!!
Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comment.
Have a great week my friend.
Love and Blessings!!

THERE YOU ARE! Or rather, there are your gorgeous girls! Sheri, your trip, oh how I wish I could see you! I do not like to fly my friend, but when I do, I can't wait to get off that plane and run to my destination. Sunny Southern Cal....my home. And that BUNNY! Do you know that while growing up there, I never saw a rabbit, EVER. Now they're everywhere! Darling photo, and yummy food fit for a queen. XOXOXO

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

You've had such a fun trip! And look at that purple shop...I would have loved that! I actually LOVE to fly but haven't in a few years so I would probably hate all of the delays now. I'm glad you had a special weekend! Sweet hugs, Diane

Meu dia das mães , foi solitário. Só eu e marido.
Meus filhos moram longe.

Looks like you had a wonderful mothers day with all your lovable ones!

Patricia said...

Hi Sheri, looks like you had a very special Mother's Day. All that food looks so delicious - you must have had quite a party. Your two daughters are very gorgeous - a tribute to their lovely Mum. I wonder how many purple bears they sell in that shop?

Shell said...

Sheri your girls are beautiful and a little sojourn never goes astray I say ! Happy Mums day from one to another, Shell - A Darlings Nest

Susan said...

Hi Sheri....Ohhhh, it looked like SUCH fun! So happy you had that excursion.

The tea party sounded great, too.

I have a sister in Mission Viejo and always loved visiting her, too.

Hope you are having a lovely week. Susan

Que Dios te bendiga

Deserae said...

Glad you had a wonderful visit!!! The food looks soooo delicious and those purple teddy bears are so adorable :o) I do not like to fly...it scares me to death!

NanaDiana said...

I do NOT like flying and I have had a couple of "air scares" so I drive whenever I can. But- what a lovely trip for you to spend time with your beautiful girls- xo Diana

Stephanie said...

What a lovely time, dear Sheri, and the food has my mouth watering! I am eating some crackers right now and after seeing your food I am craving more "sophisticated" yummies :) haha

It's always a joy to visit you, my friend. You are beautiful and such a blessing!

Hugs to you.

Barbara said...

Oh my gosh, what a wonderful way to celebrate Mother's day! All appetizers and images are looking yummy.


Teresa said...

There's that. You might not like it (I don't - best sound in the world in when the plane hits the lane; at the arrival) but it takes you there fast so...

What a wonderful time you seem to have had.

Good for you, Girls!

Red Rose Alley said...

I am surprised that so many don't like flying, but I am right there with you! (I just torture myself in order to get to my destination!) Well said, Teresa: I definitely agree. Thank you all for the sweet compliments. :-)

Looks like you enjoyed a beautiful day with your girls, my friend. So happy for you. Miss A.J. and I treated ourselves to a mother and daughter pedi and mani yesterday and it was heavenly. I love days like these.
As far as flying, if I can avoid it I will, but I've surrendered to it many times. Just seems my fears have increased with time, but I'll take a plane to Italy any day. teehee

Love you.

I know what you mean but sometimes there's no other option but to fly. And yes it saves us time.
The girls did a good job on Mother's Day. The goodies looked so yummy!

Sorry I missed this post.

Love from me

This looks like a very special birthday treat. I love those pretty teacups and the appetisers look delicious with different flavours and textures which I enjoy. As for flying, I generally enjoy it mainly because I'm looking forward to the destination!
