Had a fabulous Mom's Day with my own mom, who for some reason I've been calling her "Mamacita Figureoa" since I was like, 10. Have no idea how that got started, but it's tradition so that's how her cards are addressed. So, we met the rest of the fam in Westlake Village for brunch, then my architect brother took some of us for a tour of an amazing house he's building in Malibu. Ahhhh....the views were to die for beautiful. My kids climbed in and out of the infinity pool (empty of course) that's being built to look as if it's on the edge of the sea. The house itself is huge, with too many rooms to mention, plus a master bedroom and bath the size of my house, people.
On the way there my brother pointed out homes of the rich and famous, and all I could think of was the sermon our pastor gave this morning on the dangers of materialism. LOL Is there some reason he chose Mother's Day for that message? Let's just believe it was a coinkydink, shall we?
For you Zoey 101 watchers, we drove home along PCH past Pepperdine University where the show is filmed. Plus it's my husband's alma mater, not to mention the place we were married (in the campus chapel that looks over the sea). After that, we stopped at La Jolla beach where there's this incredibly steep sand hill that looks much easier to climb than it actually is (trust me, my knees and I know). Hubby and I sat in the car while our kids bravely climbed the hill (sometimes on their knees). Hey, this is standard tourist fare that all who visit So Cal must attempt. Just so you know.
Tomorrow it's back to writing the next great american novel. Lol...hey, it's good to have goals. What about you? Tell me how you spent your weekend! Hope it was a good one for you :))
