cheers to the weekend...

This past week has been a whirlwind
of a few different things

Steff's 21st birthday and a fabulous dinner with her
and her boyfriend at the wonderful Cafe Gratitude. I
dare you to leave there without a smile on your face!

Visiting with awesome friends that I
don't get to see too often - very short
amount of time but always loads of fun and
lots of laughs!

Making a crazy decision to drive the Malibu Canyons in a heavy rain to get my friends to Venice. Lots of rocks falling onto the road = no fun for the driver. The freeway was a welcome blessing after that.

A sad trip to say goodbye to Alex's favorite
Aunt who is in the final hours of her life. So heartbreaking.

On a happier note, tomorrow I will be going to see a play that my girlfriends daughter is in: Thoroughly Modern Millie.  Looking forward to it. I love live theater so much!

And a little girly pampering this weekend is in order, hopefully taking a much needed long walk and bike ride(due to having too many girl scout cookies in our life right now! haha...) and doing some heavy duty relaxing!

Enjoy the weekend!

You have had a jam packed week Cathi with lots of ups and downs. I hope you enjoy your pampering over the week-end and that you get out for that walk and bike ride. Hugs to you sweet friend. xo

What a mixture of a week Cathi ....I'm so sorry to hear about Alex's aunt. It must be such a sad time for you all.
Enjoy your weekend and belated birthday wishes to Steff.XXXX

Wow ! You need the weekend to catch your breath after that week! Hope it's restful and peaceful! Love the idea of Cafe Gratitude.
