The weekend went so quickly! Saturday I met Amy at the local scrapbook store and between that store and Hobby Lobby, we spent about three hours wandering around together. It was SO great spending time with her!
I went to Bou when we were done shopping, settling in and finishing a short article for the scrapbook store’s newsletter. I also finished my design team layout while at the coffee shop; they weren’t busy at the time, so I didn’t feel badly about using part of the big table there.
Our dinner with friends in Columbus was really nice, casual. We’re so glad they moved back to the area from out of state. Shawna made a grilled chicken salad she said was inspired by one at Bob Evans restaurant. It was baby spinach tossed with grilled chicken, shredded cheese, onion, toasted pecans, craisins, and crumbled turkey bacon. It was delicious! We played Texas hold ’em after dinner, proving yet again that I am a truly lousy card player. Phrases like this escaped my mouth: “Let’s just say, hypothetically, that someone had a rotten hand…”. Yeah, I am that bad. But they all knew it and it was became the running joke of the night.
Tonight we did see Horton Hears a Who! with Amy’s family. What a cute adaptation of the children’s book! I am so blown away by the depth and detail of CGI films. They really bring the characters and the scenery to life. This movie didn’t disappoint.
After the movie, we watched our friends play some games at the arcade across from the theater, where Howie played a game of air hockey with Quin. Howie and I then went to Wal-Mart, where I finally picked up a nice big 24×36″ Fiskars cutting mat for my scrapbooking area at home. I really needed one and I’m tickled to be working again so I could buy one.
Not much else to report! We’re looking forward to a weekend in Maryland with Michael and Dea, the two wonderful folks we stayed with when Howie had his back surgery back in 2006. We can’t wait to see them!
