Mother's Day Weekend Surprise!!

For Mother's Day I thought it would be fun to plan a little surprise day trip for my mom.  I kept her in suspense until we started to see signs for the adorable town we were going to visit, Winnsboro!  I had always wanted to visit here, so this proved the perfect opportunity and this choice of destination did not disappoint.  They have such an adorable downtown area and I cannot wait to return!  We happened upon the most adorable Bistro for lunch and were in a bit of a rush since our next stop on the journey involved appointments in thirty minutes, but the staff there was so gracious and helpful.  They were able to provide a fabulous lunch quickly!!

I just loved the interior of the Winnsboro Bistro.  The ceiling has beautifully gathered fabric that meets in the center of the room.  Love the chandeliers, too!
The warmth and richness of the tones was just perfect for the setting.
Here is where the fabric gathers in the middle.
I think this would be a lovely place for any party!

Here's my beautiful mama.  It was so special to celebrate her!!
We both ordered tomato basil soup and yes, it was as delicous as it looks!! 
After our quick and fabulous lunch, we headed to our next appointment:
I had heard how fabulous this place was and it deserves all that praise and more.  We had a wonderful time!  I booked pedicure appointments for mom and me and since our appointments were back to back, they took me to a cozy little room to relax while Mom was getting her pedicure.

Here is my view in my little oasis of calm.  They had a wonderful overstuffed armchair and ottoman to relax in and also brought me the most fabulous warm neck wrap.  I confess I almost dozed off a few times because it was so relaxing.  I loved that they had Real Simple magazine, too -- one of my favorites!

Here's a picture of a very happy, relaxed girl!
Then, it was time for my pedicure, which was also fabulous! 
Here we are with our finished products!!  Mom chose a fantastic red and mine is more hot pink. :)
After the pedicures, we thought a little coffee treat might be nice, so we moseyed on over to another part of the downtown area to this fun little place!
They had such a fun and expansive menu that it was hard to decide what to order.  I finally settled on the Market Street Macchiato and it was delicious!  We enjoyed having a good visit in the fun ambiance of the coffee shop.
They had such fun coffee cups and accessories for sale, too!  
Then, we spent a little time shopping! :)  Mom found a treat for Little B and a lovely book of quotes from a mother to a daughter.
Oh, how blessed I am to have you for my mother.  
I love you so much and am so thankful we got to share this day together and celebrate you!!
