LIFE: MY MARVELOUS MOTHER'S BIRTHDAY AT SUR RESTAURANT


Happy Monday
, Blogland!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! We celebrated my Marvelous Mother's birthday on Saturday, June 9th, her actual birthday, at SUR on Robertson Blvd. in LA LA Land and had the most perfect evening, complete with cocktails in the lounge prior to dinner!

It is owned by Lisa Vanderpump, for any of you "Housewives of Beverly Hills" fans, and the manager Guillermo Zapata, is not only adorable, but such a happy, friendly and genuinely kind person full of personality, whom my mother just adores!

He came out and truly surprised her singing "Happy Birthday" with the dessert and a giant sparkler, he even grabbed the camera from me so he could capture some pictures of the moment, which turned out great! He was so gracious to us all and made it a very special moment for my mother, even taking a picture with her, which you'll see below! :)

I want to thank Guillermo and Christina, our super adorable, genuine and fun waitress, originally from back east, for making the evening a true success, and one my mother will remember forever!

Now on with the Picture Show...hehe!
My mother's Krispy Kreme donuts in place of a cake, and us all dressed up and ready to head to SUR.

Love this picture of my extraordinary parents...not sure how I got so lucky!!! ♥
SUR Lounge bar and fountain area with a great Morroccan feel to it.
Before the restaurant filled up and was packed for the night....so pretty!

Love the hanging lanterns and ceiling in the ladies restroom of SUR and their pretty tablescape!
My mother was genuinely surprise, which made it even more special! :)
Great picture that the manager got of me and my beautiful mother...you'd never guess her age!
