Weekend Update

Just cuz everyone is DYING to know what I did this weekend, I'll give you the run down. Try not to fall asleep.

Friday evening I was off to PF Chang's to meet Connie, Sam & Andy, Robin & Marty, and Rhonda & Josh for dinner. Seems the Canadian crew made an Ohio stop during their vacation. So of course, they had to include a blogger get together in their sightseeing. I was the last to arrive, naturally. We had an interesting dinner where I tried a few new things. This was my first time at this restaurant. The place was a little cramped and very loud. But the waiter was cute. Even so, I'm not sure I'll be rushing to repeat my visit. I wasn't all that impressed. The cocktails were delish. But aren't they always?

Had a little gift exchange where Mia (and momma) got some great loot. Sam made an adorable little taggy blanket out of the most darling fabric. She also included a penguin squirty bath toy. Robin made Mia a corker bow in scarlet and gray. Now all I need is to pick up a tiny matching OSU jersey. There are football parties in our future with the Buckeyes & Eggrolls crew. Rhonda & Josh brought the sweetest little momma and baby stuffed penguin which will have a special place in Mia's nursery. They also gave me a Toronto Police coffee mug, a Chinese key chain, and a cute Canadian ladybug tee shirt for baby. Thanks so much for all the gifts.
Saturday I spent the day at my BFF's place. She and her husband just bought a new house. I was recruited by their 13 yr old, Peyton, to help paint her room. Peyton has new bedding with stripes and polka dots. So guess what she wanted on the walls? Yep you guessed it. The room was painted lime green. We then taped off two walls and painted turquoise blue stripes. The other two walls are covered in the same blue polka dots. I need to get a picture of it. It's very ...uh, overwhelming. But cool if you're 13, I guess.

Sunday I made a little road trip to Buckeyes & Eggrolls country where the afternoon was spent with the same crew from Friday's dinner plus Sam's munchkins and a little buckeye grandaughter. Their house is beautiful. Except I think Marty may have had a few too many when he built the shed. Click here for an explanation of the joke (and as a bonus you'll get the recipe for an amazing cheesecake made by Connie). It was a relaxing afternoon spent with great food, gorgeous cocktails, and a bunch of wonderful new friends.

Oh... and Marty, you had me at margarita! (wink)

You are a busy girl! Glad you're having fun.

Back when I was 13-ish, I had "rainbow!rainbow!rainbow!" wallpaper. My parents put it up while i was away visiting my grandmother one summer week or so. So, that being said, I can attest to the cool "tween" love of tasteless wall decor. What a great friend you are to indulge Peyton! Schweet!

Julie said...

Wow, what a fun weekend and load of gifts. That fabric on the taggy blanket is SUPER CUTE!

Janet said...

My daughter would LOVE that room!

kris said...

Me too. Happy for you. Hate (especially THIS MUCH)fun too. So it's better for me this way as well.

Gonna go put my arm around Sen and cry in my diet coke with her.

Cuz we're both dieting (I think).

Looking forward to seeing pics of the room but please warn us so that we can don our sunglasses before the unveiling!

Krista, I was going to be smart and say something like you complete me. But it didn't seem to fit. So, frozen or on the rocks? With or without salt? Thanks for coming, Robin and I had a blast. See you soon... Marty

Tawni said...

oooo...you're so spoiled...;)

Rhonda said...

Josh and I had a GREAT time meeting you and I'm glad that you liked the gifts we got for you and Mia.

The shed DOES look crooked. ;)
