We spent Sunday afternoon with Lindsay and her family. It was pretty mellow; we just hung out together and went to Applebee's for dinner. That is Reagan's favorite restaurant; now why she got to choose the restaurant when it was Mother's Day, I'm not too sure. Oh yeah – it's because she's so darn cute – that's why!! :) After dinner, we went back to Lins and Jason's for cake to celebrate my birthday. Reagan helped me blow out the candles. We had a quiet celebration because Lindsay is having my whole family over on Saturday for a big party and that will be anything BUT quiet!. I'm very excited! Mostly because I haven't seen the whole family since we've been back, so I'm looking forward to that.
Monday was my wonderful, talented nephew, Joe's, birthday. Joe is such a cool guy. He lives in LA (and we miss him terribly) and is pursuing a music career. He is so crazy talented – he has taught himself to play many different instruments and he sings with such passion. He has a CD coming out this summer and I am just so proud of him.
Yesterday was a shopping day. I don't normally enjoy shopping, but I really wanted to find a jean jacket. I needed a lightweight jacket and really like jean jackets – they go with everything. My frugal daughter always has coupons for everything and she had a 25% one for Boscov's, which is a department store in this area. We walked in and within 5 minutes, I had me a jean jacket!! And the best part was the price – it was already $14 off the regular price, and then I got 25% more off. Such a great thing!
Of course, we had to take time out to have fun at the mall, too! Can't pass up those merry go rounds! :)
Then, we went to Linens 'n Things to get a coffee pot for Randy. For those of you who know my hubby, he can't go without his coffee!! :)
Today is a quiet day, too, but another special one. It's our niece, MacKenzie's, SIXTEENTH birthday. She is a smart, beautiful young woman and is going to be a phenomenal adult. So, happy birthday, Meme!!
We did go out to breakfast this morning. We found this local diner last year and, although it doesn't look like much from the outside, it's good eats inside. Randy & I look for these local places and if there are lots of cars out front, you can figure the food's good. That's how we found the White Horse Diner. We ate breakfast here once a week last year and will probably continue this year, too. We can get a BIG breakfast for just $16 for the two of us, and that's with tip!! It sure doesn't take much to make us happy.
Well, I've rambled enough for now. Take care of each other! Until the next time . . .
