Excuse me, Mr. Weekend...where do you go?

Time really does fly when you're having fun!
Our weekend fun started Friday night when we met Carrie at Lucky Lou's for dinner. Now that she lives in her own house, we really appreciate those times together to catch up and just see her smiling face. After dinner Carrie and I headed to Costco where she finally bought the computer she's been waiting for {thanks to receiving her long awaited tax refund}. Expect more frequent blog posts from her now. :o)

Saturday was busy with Doug and I both working in our respective home areas - me cleaning inside and him working outside. Then Saturday night we headed to Scottsdale to meet some good friends for dinner. The weather was perfect and we had dessert and a glass of wine {ok, two glasses...} while sitting outside along the "River Walk" {which is actually a canal all fancied up} waiting for the Super-moon to rise.

After dinner we enjoyed a nice stroll around the area and took a bunch of photos that mostly didn't turn out very well {point-and-shoot along for the ride}.

Sunday morning found Carrie and I in front of my computer for two hours chatting with some lovely blog friends on Skype. I had to borrow Rhona's photo {I hope you don't mind, Rhona!} because I accidentally deleted mine before I was able to upload it. Gr!!!

It was so much fun visiting with these ladies and getting to know each other a little better. If you haven't tried Skype, I highly recommend it!!! From top left to bottom: Carrie and me, Mel, Karen, Denise & Deb, Ruth, and Rhona at the bottom. Fun. Fun. Fun! xo
And as if that wasn't enough fun for one weekend, Carrie and I met our dear friend Janae at the park with her two adorables, B & K. These little dudes just turned 2 and they are busy, busy, busy, and oh so cute. Top that all off with grilled burgers on our patio with Carrie for a Sunday evening meal and you've had yourself a great weekend!
.
So tell me, how was your weekend?

It really was so much fun to chat to everyone, thank you SO much for organising it. I do hope we get to do it again sometime soon! You certainly packed a lot into your weekend, you need a week off now to recover ;-)

Ruth said...

It was a great weekend thanks to you! Hope we share some more of them very soon!

Cheri said...

sounds like you had a marvelous time! I did cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, more laundry, cooking ... and for fun - culled through old scrap mags and did a bunch of recycling!

What a lovely, fun weekend! Mine was fun and full as well :) The highlights being Eggplant Pie at a new restaurant and a whole afternoon with my granpuppy, Darby.

Sounds like a great weekend! Ours was good too. Busy, cleaning, baking, out with friends, and a jewelry party. Congrats to Carrie on the new computer!

Glad the skype party worked out! I was thinking of you while teaching my art jouranling class (which is why I couldn't join in the fun). Maybe next time, if there is a next time?

That skype chat was so much, thank you for organising it :). Our weekend had included a visit from friends who live in Cambridge and it was great catching up with them as well. Can't believe I didn't take any photos though!! xx

I want you to promise me that I can be like this when my kids are out of the house. Actually, I want you to promise me that my kids will one day be out of the house.

A Skype Party! Oooh! It looks like fun.
What a busy weekend you had - but it sounds lovely.
It's crazy-busy here just now... preparing for my workshop day on Saturday (teaching Sock Pet making!), planning to make wedding albums for etsy customers, trying to fit in "normal" activities - like, erm, cleaning... hmmm... and my lovely niece texted me this morning to say her baby is on her way today... Ooooh, so excited!
Now I'm off to do some work, before I spend all morning blogging!
Love to you, Carrie and Marti (and Doug..). XXX(X)
