Perfect Moment Monday: Gondola and Grimace

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join. Details on how to participate are at the bottom of this post, complete with bloggy bling.

Please visit the links of the participants at the bottom.

Here’s a perfect moment from my week. I hope you’ll share yours, too.


This week I had not just a perfect moment but an entire perfect day.

The morning started in downtown Denver, and included a mocha frappe, The Hamburgler, a gondola, learning that Denver has a lock-system on Cherry Creek, and the always-friendly Mile High Mamas. Here are some snapshots from that part of the day.

After I got home, I joined a conference call with Selena Gomez and Joey King, sisters in the about-to-be-released film Ramona and Beezus. Tessa and I attended a pre-screening of the movie earlier in the week, and it is fanTAStic. A full write-up will come soon.

Both girls were kind and real and vibrant as they answered our interview question. I have new status in Tessa’s eyes, having chatted with the The Wizards of Waverly Place star.

It’s really something close to perfection, I’ve found, to be thought cool by a tweenager.

  1. I couldn’t see the pics, but the day did sound PERFECT.

    plus looking cool in front of your daughter….PERFECT on so many levels. YEAH!!!

  2. Oooooooo.. you ARE a rock star!! I saw y’all tweeting about the fun w/ McD’s .. it sounded LOVELY!! The pics are great, too!

    I just saw the trailer for Ramona and Beezus this weekend.. I grew up reading Beverly Cleary books and was THRILLED! If we don’t get kiddos soon, I might need to borrow T and go to the movies.. it would look weird if I was kid-less, wouldn’t it??

    You ARE a rock star!!

  3. Your little chicka thinking you’re cool? Take it for every amazing moment it is, cuz as a former terror, I have to warn you she won’t think you’re cool that often;-)

  4. I think you are cool and I was a tweenager and a teenager once upon a time.

    Does that count?

    Thanks for sharing your Perfect Moment…it sounds perfect to me!

  5. Love this fun day you had.
    Now I want you to package up those feelings.
    Tie a bow around how you are the Coolest Mom. And bring it out during the years when you in the presence of an eye-rolling, hair-flipping, door-slamming teenager.

    Great photos.

  6. I haven’t heard of any of those shows / actors. I am so out of touch. I understand being your child’s star. Sounds like a lovely day.
