Fabulous Friends!!!

My friend from grade school came to visit me this weekend with her daughter! I was so excited because in the last 20 years this is the first time I had a friend from school come visit for the whole weekend =) So, I had to make this some what of a fun weekend for all of us.
First off... I put my hubby on food patrol! He gathered all the fixins for the whole weekend. He had to do it up right because I bragged about how much of a wonderful cook he was. Plus, this way I don't have to cook...hehehe!
Next, was planning fun activities to do up here in Indianola. This was a little bit easier then I thought it would be... My friend Liz of "Seabold Vintage" was putting on her flea market this weekend in Bainbridge Island. That was a must see! Before we went to the flea market we had to check out the shops in Winslow (which is on Bainbridge too). There is one paper store that had the funniest glasses that her daughter could not resist to purchase for her friend back home. They reminded me of glasses that Elton John would wear back in the day. Then we hit the flea market! Of course I was talking about our next show that the Funky Junk Sister's will be having in October to everyone. There was some great stuff there. Liz's stuff was awesome as usual! It looked like everyone was having a great time... wheeling and dealing in each booth. We also toured around Poulsbo. Hit the fabulous bakery that they have there... yummy! Of course I am still doing the diet thing.. so, I got a healthy cookie (if there is such a thing) it had pumpkin seeds, flax, and some other health stuff. It was pretty good. I think it was called "Grandpa's Cookies". My friend's daughter had a yummy looking pull apart... I just wanted to take it out of her hands it looked so good! Ok, enough about food because I will probably go raid the fridge if I keep talking about it!
The nights consisted of sitting out on the back deck enjoying a nice warm fire... drinking a few adult drinks.. and thinking about how much I have missed this. We had a lot of fun talking about the good ol' days and people that we have seen over the years. Our 20 year reunion is next summer and we can't wait to catch up with everyone!
