The something new is a shot of tequila (with salt & lime, of course). The who is my darling Mother in Law, Charlotte. It was her birthday today and we went out to dinner at Carlos & Pepe's. She and Richard both ordered margaritas ~ I was driving :( and Richard got the always wonderful idea to do a shot of tequila as well and ordered one for his mom who has never had a shot of anything ~ ever! She was a good sport about it and although she only shot 1/2 the shot she did do the second half with more salt & lime and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were not sure what to get her for her birthday since the only thing she mentioned wanting was a container for the back of her CR-V so groceries, etc. would not fly around... so we got her a big blue plastic container then decided to "fill it." We got lots of stuff she wouldn't normally get herself but would enjoy. There was a bucket of margarita mix.. the kind you mix with tequila and keep in the freezer and of course, got her the tequila and some blue corn chips with a pineapple salsa. Also some chocolates, pistachio's, a couple of bottles of wine, some gourmet rice, some body lotion, bath wash, bath scrungie, a CD holder for her car and Richard burned her some CD's to get her started, shampoo etc...
We also got her this plack, which I love. I told her she had to put it somewhere that she could see it and follow it every day.
And I guess you are never too old to act silly! Happy Birthday Mumy!
We also went out to the movies to see "Wall E." I wasn't that impressed but then I was not in a very good mood. Everyone seemed to love it ~ so there you go!
