Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers, soon-to-be mothers, grandmothers, godmothers, surrogate mothers, and mother-like nurturers out there!  :)

For my first Mother's Day, Raph and I are throwing a bbq for our immediate families.  Our first in our new house!  We had a bit of a setback when the awesome shiny new grill we bought could not be installed in the yard.  It's a gas grill and there is an existing pipe that is currently connected to the old-ass nasty grill the prior owners left behind.  We had a plumber come out to look at it, thinking it would be quick when done by a professional.  However, the age of this house (50 years) strikes again - the pipe is way too small for the new grill and we would only get a tiny flame out of it if we hooked it up that way.  They're going to have to dig under the house and in the ceiling of the basement to remove the old pipe and install a new one.  Estimated cost is $500-600.  Yikes.  

So we bought a small grill For $70 to use today.  We figure it'll be good for tailgating or taking to parks and stuff later on.  At least the bbq is saved!  From a food perspective, anyway.

Have a great day, mommies!
