Hey y’all! (I am feeling more and more like Paula Deen every day. More on her in a later post…) Today is a good day: my
sister best friend 🙂 and I had to say goodbye last weekend for what I thought was 4 months. Going 4 months without seeing my sister is unspeakable, I tell ya! I mean, who else can be this silly with me?
It was not fun saying goodbye, so when her new exercise bike came in and needed to be delivered to her house, I jumped up and down a few (hundred) times. Our whole family piled in the crazy-packed van and headed to the
farm rural part of Wisconsin.
I LOVE her apartment. It’s just 2-bedrooms, so it’s nice and cozy when all 5 of us are together. Watching football games and movies at night, taking walks around the square, exploring the deep discounts at ShopKo & Walmart. I mean, does life get any better? 🙂 Plus, in all honesty, some of the best days of my life have been here. Last spring the five of us went to a nearby park and had a picnic – complete with hot dogs on the grill, a killer potato salad, s’mores, football-tossing, and tons of laughing. For some reason, my mom and I both thought that was one of the best days we’ve ever had. Isn’t it weird that the days you least expect something wonderful to happen are often the most memorable? I love waking up each day with the possibility of ending it having created amazing, not-to-be-forgotten moments.
Not only that, but some pretty fantastic dishes are made at her place (what can I say? Besides the disasters that were our red pepper gnocchi, tortilla scramble, and pesto linguine, we make
pretty good amazing meals. Our most prized culinary creation was pumpkin gnocchi, made this past fall when I visited:
We’re off to watch some games, do some shopping, and, later, cooking an uber-delish dinner. More on that lata, gator!
Here’s the deal:
Earlier this week at my girls’ night in, my friend Hannah modeled her new glasses for us. She’s deciding what new pair of frames to purchase, and she needs your help 🙂 We all kind of put in our 2 cents, but here are the four options, and I thought it’d be fun if you helped vote! Even if you’ve never commented before, just say #1, 2, 3, or 4. We all want her to look good, right? Though she would even if she were wearing these bad boys:
But in all seriousness, here goes…
And I ask you: What pair of glasses should Hannah get?!
