Me, along with my two best pals Cristen and Kasi, started having a ladies night each Thursday. After the last year at school, I was feeling out of touch with real life, so its been a fantastic treat.
This week Cristen and I did some shopping, followed by sushi and a bottle of wine at Wasabi downtown. My former employer opened the restaurant a few months ago, and he's doing a swell job.
After our fried banana ball dessert (Yes, our server muttered, 'How are you balls tasting,' because how can you not?), we met up with Kasi at Monte's for a drink (or two — hell, three) and a meat and cheese tray.
Cristen showed off Kasi's old man from "Up" face on her phone.
Then Kasi reenacted it for us. What a great couple of girls.
Thank you for posting so many fun, entertaining items for me to waste time looking at while I should be working on final projects. Your ideas inspire me to hurry up and get done so I can go back to creating. But alas, I must get my book sent in tonight and write two more articles.
I'm one of those annoying people who loves Christmas. I love when stores put out Christmas stuff the day after Halloween. I love people who obnoxiously decorate their front yards. I love radio stations (despite their regular programming) that play 24-hour Christmas music.
So here they are, my favorite albums because I didn't want to narrow it down to songs.
