Playing Catch-up

I really had great intentions on posting more often.  I don't really have an excuse, just nothing interesting to say.  Playing catch up with some fun events.

I took Ryan out for a birthday lunch.  Loved playing catch up.  I told him he needs
a hair cut but he's letting it grow for a specific event in March and he promised he'd get it 
cut afterwards.  Am I ever gonna stop being "that" mom.  The one who suggests to her all grown up
son that he needs a haircut, shave and all the other "suggestions" that I'm sure he doesn't need or
want to hear but always listens to with a smile.  Love this boy.

Happy Birthday Bubba

Had a fun GNO in January at Kathie's house.  We've been doing alot
of craft nights since last September.  This night we made pillows.

I made a cute silvery gray pillow for my bedroom reno that I'm planning this year.
I'll be adding a flower with a rhinestone pin in the corners and will update a
picture when I finish.   

I didn't get pictures of everyone (or their finished results) but I wanted to show what cute and 
delicious treats that Kathie's daughter, Krysta, made for us.

Button cookies and cupcakes with fondant spools of thread on top

Other exciting happening:

My BFF (am I allowed to say that at my age) drove into town all the way
from Mobile for a much needed and long awaited weekend together.

our dog Koby loves his Aunt Janet

We had a two day visit:

stayed up "really late" at night talking
mike took us to the movie, identity theft  (really funny)
quick hobby lobby shopping trip
janet treated us to lunch
girls day shopping together
yummy salads at the mall

oh yes janet, i did post a picture of our lunch  ha

she made her famous fried rice for dinner when we got home
she makes the best in the world as every member of my family has 
declared time and time again

yep, i put a picture of your fried rice too

after dinner we had a late night marathon of season 1 of "the walking dead"
i know, what is a person my age watching this show
i admit it, i'm a closet fan of the show and janet is a true
kindred spirit.  janet had never seen the show and loved it, hence the marathon

sadly she had to go home to be with her family the next day but
happy to say we've already planned my next visit to her
until then bff, phone calls and texts will have to do 

the quality of the pictures above are awful because i have been
using my cell phone.  so easy to use but i always hate the results.
