Well, the kids made it to Nashville, Chelsey called and on the agenda tonite was a paddleboat cruise for supper. She planned on eating something "fishy" she said---lobster, crab , or shrimp. I just laughed. When that child is happy, the whole world is full of cherry gumdrops....
Life is good at home. Don and I say a trip would be nice, but we get so little time alone at home, this is week is a vacation, and you don't have to leave home. We rented the movie 'Failure to Launch' last Night. Guaranteed Giggles. I highly recommend it. We also had Garlic Chicken pizza. I'm not much of an adventurer when it comes to food. I like what I like, I don't try many new things...Well I tried this and it was great.
When I was in college my roommates and I had this game called the Best Boyfriend award. Girls come back from weekends, compare notes and who was 'the Best Boyfriend??' Even after we 'grew up' and got married we still talked occaisionally and always said,'Law makes you a husband, but it's that great guy that gets the Every so Often Boyfriend Award'. I think Don got it today. You will appreciate it. We went to Appleton, WI shopping and for lunch. It's about an hour and a half drive. The first place he took me was the Patchwork Sampler. It's one of the nicest quilt shops I've ever been to. Remember it, I'm confident one day it well make the top ten list. Anyway they were having a sale and a fat quarter sale on top of it. Honey, I got my bag and started going for it. Then I stopped and thought. I have fabric at home. The idea of the group is too lower the stash. Well, with a whole lot of will power I put the fat quarters back. I did make the purchases below.
I felt like they were great deals for backing and I really have no yellow fabric so I felt it was legal. The Scrappy patterns were just necessary therapy.
Stay with me now, I pay for my purchases. and go to the car where Don is waiting. He pulls out and we start driving away. I tell him about my great will power and about my purchases (he even listens!!)Well, I tell him about the fat quarter sale, and he almost demands I go back in there for more fabric!!! I almost died...No , Don I'm Good. But Mel, if it's that good of a deal, let's turn around----last chance...
Just when you've got them figured out--bam! They go and do something nice---hence--The Boyfriend Award, any guy can be a husband, but it's that great one that is ...the Boyfriend....
Now we did do some window shopping for motorcycles (an incredible learning experience) and cars (you know the kind you'll buy AFTER the kids are raised).
All and All I had a wonderful day.
