weekending v.10

This weekend and next are the busy bookends to an equally busy week. On Friday I scuttled about the house preparing for Sam, our first overnight guest. We were all looking forward to her visit - Grandma included.

On Saturday Sam and I explored the farmer's market and snuggled with two kittens that were free for the taking. They were hard to leave behind!

I managed to resist the yummy looking pastries offered at the market b/c I knew we were going to have a filling lunch. I took Sam to Cafe Nola, where I lunched w/ Holly during my first downtown experience.

Sam ordered the quinoa risotto topped with beets and roasted tomato and I ordered the eggplant tempura sandwich with sweet potato fries. Both of our meals were extremely rich. Delicious, but rich. After browsing some shops we pulled a Rennie date and got coffee, played games and walked along the creek.

And then I got pooped on. I didn't really know what to do so I just laughed and asked Sam to help me get it out. She worked magic with a tissue and some hand sanitizer - she's a good friend all right! I was sad for her to leave. Come back soon, girlfran!

Today I'm back to scuttling - this time to prep for my trip to Kentucky tomorrow. I haven't gotten face to face girl time w/ my best friend in nearly a year and a half! I'll get back Friday evening and then on Saturday we get this little nugget all to ourselves while her parents are at a wedding.

I'm going to be too busy gabbing with Laurel and kissing baby cheeks to blog, so I'll see ya'll next Sunday for weekending v.11!
