Well, it's been nearly two weeks since my last post. What can I say? I try to only bore you with the dullest details of my life and there has been far too much excitement around here lately! Here's what we've been up to.
Hubby enjoyed a "work" trip to Spain. (Poor dear had to drive fun cars and eat tapas without me!)
I had the privilege of enjoying high tea at the Hotel Bel Air with my mother in law.
I ate my first quail egg. (I had quite recently added it to my list of "must try" list of foods, soft-shell crabs you're next!)
Finally, Hubby and I had an impromptu BBQ/Housewarming last weekend. Few friends were able to make it due to the fact that invitations were issued only hours before. The last thing that I expected was for anyone to bring a present but I really should have known better. Here is the gift that my lovely new friend The Felt Mouse came up with on the fly.
Every item is color and theme coordinated, from the picnic checkered ribbon to the adorable tag.
There is an old girl scout song that says "Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver but the other's gold." Forgive me girls, but a witty friend with a stash of vintage cookbooks is priceless.
