Saturday morning found me blissfully occupied at Goodwill, searching for good finds during their 50% sale.
At lunchtime I met up with my two sisters and mom for lunch at The Sanctuary to celebrate Emily's birthday, as well as mine.
We had so much fun! This is why I'm so excited that Rachel is going to have a sister!
I had a New Orleans sandwich with Cauliflower soup (yum!):
The chocolates and chocolate desserts on display were incredible. We couldn't resist splitting one between us:
And here is my unloaded "mess" from Goodwill. I found some great shirts and a sweater for Michael, a few maternity items, quite a few sweaters to felt, a stack of clothes for Andrew, baskets for gift-giving, random silver pieces, and some cute shoes too. I called it a success!
Sunday the family was over to say goodbye to our friend Suse who is moving back to North Carolina. We had a taco feast!
Yesterday, my actual birthday, I was surprised to find snow on the ground when I woke up! That was always a childhood wish and I find it special when is snows on my very birthday. The kids and I wanted to go to the Children's Museum, but it was closed, so we headed to the downtown library instead (where I could read all the cooking magazines and the kids could play). I picked up a new lens for my camera (better for food) and then we headed home for some organizing/sewing and dinner, followed by Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia!!!!! And now onto the holidays......
