    Ruby Tuesday’s closed in Lacey and Tacoma too. There’s not many left around here. Thanks for this list! Does anyone have any tips on where to find a good brunch?

    Marie Calendars has an awesome brunch! We went last year they had belgian waffle bars, seafood, salad, breakfast (biscuit and gravy, bacon, omlet bar). We went the one in Federal Way 348th and it wasn’t too busy!

    All mothers get any size coffee or drink at Dutch bros (Lacey,WA) plus gift. No idea what the gift will be though.

  5. Jen says

    Wow, that’s so cool they won flower baskets for you gals! We were just an hour too late for that part, but my girls had fun making a cake (I think) for mothers’ day. Hubby even took pictures for me to see later since it was supposed to be a “surprise”. :)
