Mom's Day and then Back on the Road

Of course we spent time with Mom today.  We went to Olive Garden. Something happened and our orders got lost.  After sitting there for an hour watching other people eat, we got a free meal.   They were very nice about it, and certainly we'll be back. 
Happy Mom's Day from Olive Garden!

This is my Mom.  She's pretty awesome, but she'd say "don't put my picture on your blog" So, too late, Mom!  Yes, the card says sweet, and she is, but so is the Orange Leaf Yogurt she loves. 

After taking a break,  back on the A to Z Trip. Bringing Ben and Jerry with me: Chunky Monkey, to be exact.   Let me see what nice folks I can visit and offer some ice cream....
Anglers Rest --interesting places and books
Tasha's Thinkings --different and scary
Ida Chiavaro @ Reflex Reactions --encouraging, relaxing place
Tales of the Reborn Crafter  --conversational, fun posts
C.M. Brown  --an award winning site, paranormal romance and some good reflections
Debra Mauldin --energizing, inspiring posts
From This Side of the Pond --sweet, family oriented
Sue CollectIn Texas Gal --fellow Texan.  Follow her family through Texas and Georgia
Tina @ Life is Good --one of the A to Z hosts and fun, helpful person and site
Rob Z Tobor --eccentrically funny and clever

So, had time for ten stops today along the road.  Check out their places.  They'll be glad to hear from ya and you'll be glad you did.  But sorry. Ate all the ice cream!

To all who read this:  have a great week!


  1. Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I'm trying to do the rounds of the A to Zers too.

  2. Hi Bethie...'Sweeeet' Mom...mine doesn't know I've used her many times blogging. She's been such a good source for my ancestry posts. The folks at Olive Garden are really nice...I bet it was hectic for mother's day.

    Thanks for visiting on your road's so fun to meet another Texan on the AtoZ. I'm your newest follower and hitch hiker. I'll hitch onto your list and follow you 'OnTheRoad'. We will spread around our famous Texas Friendly Motto!

  4. Orange Leaf Yogurt sounds awfully good. I like the picture of your mom - the flamingoes in the background are a nice touch.

  6. Love your idea of posting links to other A-Z participants. :-)

  8. Thanks for all the encouraging comments. I didn't even notice the flamingos--they're school spirit for our McNeese Cowboys.
