A weekend to never forget...

Okay, how was your Mother's Day, all you mommy's out there?

Mine was wonderful!

In fact, I will report on all the lovely goodies my sweet little baby girl showered me with!

I love her! ♥

It started off on Saturday at my church. We attended the Mother/Daughter luncheon just as we had last year, only thing was, my mom wasn't with us this time.

My daughter and I still had fun! See the smiles?! :o)

Then yesterday, Mother's Day, my daughter and I went to church, then went home and we were preparing to head to San Jose for the Sharks game as we have season tickets and of course, the tickets for this playoff series landed on Mother's Day. My husband put them up for sale but they hadn't sold yet.

Just as we were getting ready to walk out the door, my husband thought to check the tickets to see if they sold yet. One last look. SOLD! WOO HOO

So, instead we went to my mom and dad's to give my mom her Mother's Day gift (flowers from my yard, movie tickts and a card...can never go wrong!). We stayed there for about an hour and then we went to the Outback Steakhouse for dinner. I splurged and had myself a sangria. Then for dinner, a yummy steak and lobster. I was so stuffed by the time I was done, ya know...after appetizer and salad. I thought to myself "Yeah, I'm not being good today".

Had to take a pic of me and my baby, since this is what it's all about!

NOW....let's get down to the nitty gritty!

Saturday my friend and I took our girls to see Selena Gomez in concert. It was at the Dixon County Fair. I was actually kind of surprised Selena was playing at a fair, especially one out in the boonies.


As we were waiting for Selena to hit the stage, we took some pics,

We were so excited too!

Then it began.

Everyone stood up, standing in the isles and I grabbed my camera. I had my zoom lense but I apparently was further back than I originally thought.

I look to my right, I see my friend and the girls. Then back to my camera. Snap, snap, snap. Trying to get the best photos I could, especially considering I'm short (a whole 5'3") and people in front of me were taller and the hands in the air. Yeah, it was quite the challenge.

Then I looked to my right again. My friend and the girls were gone!

Where the heck did they go??!!

I assumed they tried to get a little closer but as I looked ahead, nothing!

Where the heck did they go??!!

I stood there, looking around. Behind me. To the right and left. Nothing.

Seconds go by. Then minutes.

I then text my friend, yeah, as if she'll actually hear her phone. I didn't care. I'm gonna try anyways.

Where the heck did you go??

More minutes go by.

I moved through the crowd to the closest part before going down to the last section of seats. Decided to take more pictures. This time much better. Closer and less obstruction.

Then a sherriff came by and told me to find my seat. Just as everyone else was being told to do. Then an event lady was going through and telling people to sit down so everyone could see.

At this point, I thought for sure my friend and the girls would come back. I mean, where else would they find a seat but at our own seats.


I start to panic. Horrible visions sworm my thoughts.

Will I ever see my daughter again? Had someone taken her? Is she okay?

I started to feel a sudden case of closterphobia. I wanted to cry but I had to stay calm.

I then went to the event people and cops. I had my camera to show a picture of the three of them. It was getting dark at this time and they basically told me "Everyone looks like everyone else at this point". I was given permission to walk up and down the isles to find them. Just before then, I told the people that were sitting in front of us that if they come back, to let them know I was looking for them.

Then I hit the isles. Up and down. Nothing.

It was so hard to focus my eyes with it becoming dark and trying to see each person, scanning....panicking at the same time.


I made a circle back to my seats before I hit the otherside.

They they were!! Maybe a half hour later.

"Oh my gosh! You have no idea how scared you guys had me!!!!" I began to tell them. "I'm about to cry now". Just then my friend gave me a hug and apologized profusely.

Where were they, you ask???


You heard me right. They ditched me and were front row, no cares, waving at Selena just above them, carelessly enjoying the concert. Meanwhile, I couldn't enjoy it cause I had no idea where they were. Panicking, not knowing if my child was okay or if I would ever see her again.

Their defense?

"We thought you saw us going up there?"

uuummmm, really??? I'm the starstrucked person here and you seriously thought I wouldn't FOLLOW??? HELLO???!!!!

After all of this, I am just SOOOO happy that they were okay!! I never want to be scared like that ever AGAIN!!!

However, I'm never letting this one down.

Yeah, you can say I'm a bit "butt-hurt" over this.



I hope all my blogger mom's out there had a FABulous Mother's Day and you didn't get the scare of a lifetime! ;O)

Sounds like you had a GREAT Mother's Day! Trust me, I know how you felt! Many years ago, my sister and I were in a clothing store, shopping with the kids, and they're running aroung playing hide and seek in those circular things they hang the clothes on. Well, when it was time to go, we kept calling for my little niece and she would not come out. She was hiding down in the middle, in the close thingy. Ten minutes seemed like 10 hours. I thought my sister was going to collapse on the sidewalk! Well, she finally came out and my sister was just hugging her and kissing her, but I just wanted to kick her little you know what lol!

Your daughter is totally "you" repackaged in a child's body. She's adorable and I think it's wonderful that the two of you share great times together, like the concert. Shame on them for scaring you that way! *sigh
