Mother's Day, and Tony Anticipation..  
We took Sydney and stopped by my Mom's place to surprise her with a flower arrangement today. :) She was very happy to see us and our visit totally took her by surprise. It was nice that we got to spend some time with her today - even though we're celebrating later when my in-laws come home from their trip, I didn't want the day to go by without at least seeing her. :) Here's a photo of her with the arrangement of flowers that we got for her:

I got a darling response from an e-card I sent to Julie Jackson this morning for Mother's Day. :) Aren't her children just the cutest? :) She has been SUCH a dear since I met her a few years ago! Sometimes I really miss the LA cast of "Side Show"... If it wasn't for the show and Kevin getting cast in it, I never would've gotten to know such wonderful, warm people like Julie, Nick, or even Misty. :) BTW, I have to go and see the new Ben Stiller / Jack Black movie "Envy" because Julie's daughter, Lily plays Jack Black's daughter in it. :) Special thanks to hubbaswuba for letting me know that it's out in theatres. :)

And to show you how pathetic I am... who in their right mind would stay up until 2:30am (Hawaii time) just to hear the Tony Nomination announcement live on the East Coast? And I'm sorry, but if I don't hear the names - John Tartaglia, Stephanie D'Abruzzo, Idina Menzel, Stephanie Block, and Tyrone Giordano I'll be very sad. :(

Hope everyone had a nice weekend. :)

That's a nice photo of your mum and it looks a lovely display you got for her.

Thank you, Carrie. She was very surprised when we appeared at her front door. :)

Awww, isn't your mom the cutest thing? :) What a nice thing for you to do for your mom. :)

Heehee! :) Thanks Carrie - she really didn't want to take the picture - she's a little camera shy, after all. :)

that's a nice picture of her...now if you were next to her giving a side hug would make it so much nicer! :P

The flower arrangement is beautiful...the blue flower, the name slips my mind now is my favorite!

Thanks Smitha! :) And I would've jumped in the photo too, but there was no one to take it since Mark was holding the two dogs (and having a pretty hard time of it too!) ;)

I can't remember the name of the blue flower either. I'm sure it'll come to me though... :P

How's your studying coming along?

and to add on, I don't think it's pathetic to stay up for something you love with such passion! :) We all do some 'crazy' (according to others) things for the things/people we love :D why not... we live only once!

Thanks for understanding my weird theatre addiction, Smitha. :D Sad thing is that I managed to fall asleep before they were announced and this morning the noms were a little disappointing - so I'm glad I didn't stay up to find them out. :(

Awww, your mom is just the cutest!
Sheri: Familyshutterbug93 on May 10th, 2004 11:01 am (UTC)
Heehee! Thanks Amanda! :) I think my Mom is the only person that I know who's actually shorter than me. ;) (She's only 4'10") :D

Your mom looks so happy with her flowers. She's so cute. :) Also Julie's kids' pictures are adorable!
Sheri: Stephanie & Kate Monstershutterbug93 on May 10th, 2004 12:42 pm (UTC)
She had her "I'm embarrassed to take a photo" expression in the picture ;), but she was really happy that we went to see her. :) And Julie's children are too cute! Thanks again for telling me about Lily's movie... Mark & I have to go see it (once my exam stress is over) :P

No problem about telling you about the movie... it was entertaining... won't win any awards, I am certain, but we liked it. And Lily was great in it.

Hee hee... glad you got to make your mom happy yesterday though.

Awwww your mom has a very lovely smile. :) The flowers are beautiful as well.

Awww thanks, Laura. :) She loves plants and flowers of all kinds so we thought we'd get her a spring-ish bouquet. :)

Your Mom looks lovable and happy. :) And it's beautiful arrangement of flowers, I love the colors. Thanks for sharing the photo. I hope you had a nice day, Sheri. :) *Hugs*

Thanks, Sabine. :) My Mom is a bit camera shy so it was nice that she let me take her photo. :) Hope you had a nice day too. :) *HUGS* to you and Lauser. :)
