Kittens, some weekends are overscheduled. Others, not so much. I’m not entirely sure where this one falls (though certainly more scheduled than not), but I do know that I have had some seriously wonderful moments this weekend that have just left me feeling…Warm. Content. Blessed.
I had a phone-happy hour with Lis.
Some of you might be wondering, What, specifically, IS phone-happy hour?
For Clarity: We each poured ourselves a glass of wine at 5:00 on a Friday, hopped on the phone, and proceeded to address all of the most important current events in our lives.
There were many.
I caught up with Erica. She informed me that she was seriously considering adding a canister to her kitchen set for Funfetti Cake Mix. I told her she had my whole-hearted support for that
life home-improvement project.
Tiffany and I had a lovely dinner at Bacio. We ate more crusty bread than could ever possibly be considered appropriate.
I know some people warn you off the bread basket when you’re out at dinner so that you can “save” calories for something else more…nutritious? Filling? Since Marcus and I don’t exactly have a kitchen full of refined carbs, I figure a rampage every Once In A Blue Moon is more than just acceptable, it’s necessary.
Especially when it’s at your favorite restaurant. And they serve The Best Crusty Bread.
AND (the most fun surprise that I barely even wanted to think about because I didn’t want to jinx it!) this morning, Ameena and I got to meet-up over tea at Brit’s. I started reading her blog this fall (how the Internets brought us together we are entirely unsure) and when she let me know she was coming into town this weekend, I was SO EXCITED (yes, it’s worth all the caps).
This is the part of the post where I’m supposed to show you glamorous pictures of us meeting up wearing really adorable ‘fits and drinking tea.
But the thought of taking a snap of the situation didn’t even cross my mind. So just imagine us in cardigans and boots-arrangements (she had some seriously ferosh over-the-knee ones) sitting by a window, in a pub drinking tea.
It was weird (you know, since we were actually meeting for the first time) and wonderful (it was just like catching up with an old friend) and I am SO glad that it all came together the way it did.
Naturally, check her out.
And now, because I have to go to Casino night I’ve got to do what I do best and attend to my Mitts + Paws.
Have you had any wonderful moments this weekend?
Have you ever done a blogger meet-up?
This was actually my first one (I went to the Minnesota Blogger Conference this fall, but that wasn’t really to “meet-up”) and as I confessed to Ameena, I was nervous! Obviously, that feeling disappeared ASAP.
