fun times..

.
My fun & fabulous weekend consisted of:

An unplanned last minute flight, as I was going to drive with
my daughter and friends, but work did not allow me to do so.
I have flown up north 3 times in the last five weeks, i feel
like a commuter that flies to work!

Partying with my friend Kim for her 54th birthday. (We have been friends for 42 years!)  An old friend of hers was playing in a band in a small bar in the redwood forest. we had a great time chatting, laughing and dancing the night away until 3 am!

Taking photos of artifacts in my sisters front yard, see above photo!

Helping to prepare for my nephew and his wife's co-ed baby shower,
by preparing lots of yummy food and baked goods!  (I made my dark
chocolate peanut butter cups - lip smacking!) haha....

Midnight runs to the grocery store in town, as someone's sis (mine) wasn't happy with the way the cookies turned out, so she baked a new batch at 1 am.  We were all up until about 3 am - talking and watching my sis do her last minute details.

Visiting with friends and family at the baby shower, but I have to say the highlight was the men games - the baby stroller relay - they had to run up touch the hedges,come back and change a baby dolls diaper and hug her and they were being timed. It was hilarious!!  And the guys got very competitive, having their strategies ready by the time it was their turn. 

By the end of the day, we were all exhausted and didn't last late into the night.  I had to get up at 5:30 to get to the airport to catch an early flight as I had to work on Monday.  I returned my rental car and checked luggage, got in security line (a really long one) and realized that I left my cell phone in the rental car - across the street and five floors up.  I raced over there and found it, then running back to airport, I dropped my Ipad (which I noticed several hours later has a crack on top of the glass - arrgghhhh....but it still works, so I am happy about that)

Got thru security, needed a cup of coffee and breakfast and continued reading my current book on my ipad...and this is exactly the reason I get to airports early...in the event that my brain turns off and I have to take a detour...haha....

All in all, a fun and fabulous weekend was had by all - lots of laughs, for sure!

 We have a long weekend coming up and I am
looking forward to it - bbq's with friends and more laughs for sure!

Have a great day!

What a week-end Cathi ~ no wonder you are resting up! Sounds like a blast though ~ sounds like me making lasagna one night at 11 ~ craziness! Sucks about the airport but glad that you found your phone ~ sucks about your iPad though.... I bet you have another fun filled week-end ahead of you. xo
