So much goin on lately!

Things have been hectic and busy in this house! :(

Our neighbors invited us to go see Ray Romano who was in town with Brad Garrett on Monday. They were absolutely HILARIOUS - sort of naughty but just about everyone was dying laughing! We lucked out and snagged a parking spot RIGHT IN FRONT of the Paramount where the show was...only because our neighbor, Fred, decided to turn down a one way street the WRONG way! In Seattle (especially downtown), parking is very hard to find! We were ready to pay the rip off $45 for the lot down the street...and then we lucked out right in front! Wooo hooo! He drives like a mad man next time we may opt for our own vehicle! lol

These kind friends/neighbors had wine and hors d'oeuvres for us before we left - including little tiny duck a l'orange medallions with truffle cheese (my absolute favorite cheese)! Chocolate covered strawberries, raspberry tarts, apricot tarts and a host of other truly delectable bites! YUM!! Oh, and a little Creme de Cassis topped with champagne that they brought back from France (they moved back here last summer after a nightmarish year in an old 1800's chateau near the Eiffel Tower). We were hoping we'd get to go and stay with them before they moved back to Seattle, but we couldn't get away long enough to visit :(

I also got to visit my high school friend (and maid of honor from my wedding years ago). She recently had shoulder surgery and needed some company - it's funny how really good friends never change - they are always just as much fun as you remember them being a long time ago! I heart my good friends - they are always there when I need 'em!

There are more busy days I hope you all enjoy some creative time for me....maybe I'll live vicariously this week!!

Hi Elaine!

Sounds like you had a lot of fun with your friends! It's nice that your friends invited you to a night of fun and good food!!

I have a best friend from kindergarten and she, today, is still the same as a friend since we were kids. I'm glad you were able to visit with your friend.

Your card is really pretty. I really love the colors and I love those pretty flowers that you add to your cards!!
