Happy Birthday Momma!

Yesterday we got to celebrate the birthday of a wonderful woman...
my mom.
Amazing doesn't even begin to describe her.
She is everything a mother should be and more.
One of her biggest attributes is her servants heart. Always looking for ways to serve her family and others, never thinking twice about it.
She loves her Savior, husband and children unconditionally.

I ended fall quarter on Thursday night, and decided to come home Friday afternoon and surprise mom.
I drove a couple hours and made it in time to wait outside of the school where she works.
I stood out by her car and waited her to come out.
I loved seeing the smile on her face when she saw me standing there, priceless.

We got to celebrate last night with an amazing dinner hosted by my sister and her husband in their home.

The menu was fit for a queen...

Heart of palm salad with basil, tomatoes, blue cheese and a Dijon vinaigrette dressing
Baked potatoes with ALL the fixins
Glazed brussel sprouts with caramelized Parmesan cheese
Cheddar and Parmesan cheese rolls
 Filet Mignon grilled to perfection
topped off with some fine wine.
And for dessert, Reese's homemade Tiramisu!

It was the perfect way to celebrate such a fabulous mom!
