momma came to visit friday-sunday!
it was so great!
Friday we went to cherry creek mall (anthropologie)
then to eat at Sushi Den
then we sat out on the porch talking until MIDNIGHT!
Saturday we called sus, talked for a bit.
then i took her to my work to meet all my friends
then went to fancy tiger, whole foods, target,
then her bday present: pedicures at a Nail Bar
