Mom's birthday celebration is about to take place! Since her birthday fell on Easter we both decided to do something a little special together. Anyway when my husband and I went to San Jose/Santa Cruz for our anniversary in October we took a tour of the Winchester Mystery House...across the street is a fabulous shopping area called Santana Row. I love my husband but he HATES shopping...but my mom LOVES shopping!!! Right then and there I knew it was a perfect trip for her birthday!
We arrived Friday night to Hotel Valencia...OMG...what an amazing hotel (if you ever go to San Jose I suggest stay here!). After checking into our room and getting settled in we headed off for dinner...the street were buzzing with people! We were hoping to get a table at Maggiano's Little Italy but they were booked until 9:45 PM!!! So we were able to get in at Pomodoro and it was yummy! After enjoying dinner and some wine we walked around (even though it was raining!)
