All Dolled Up

This weekend was FABULOUS! I was blessed with quality time with family and friends that I haven't seen in a while.

After a crazed day in the office Friday, I literally ran out the door towards the American Girls store to meet my precious nieces and my sister-in-law's parents for dinner. Before making it to the store, I had to make a pit-stop by my apartment to take Rockzilla outside, then I was off to the festivities. Of course I was short on time so I had to hop into a cab. Due to a malfunctioning credit card machine, I received a free cab ride. Hallelujah! I never carry cash, so I couldn't pay the cab driver. He refused to take the $1 I did have in my purse for a tip. God bless him.

I walked into American Girl store...into the swarms of little girls fluttering with excitement...searching for my family. The girls showed up with their new dolls in hand and huge smiles on their faces!
After browsing through the store, our table was ready and we were ushered into a room nearly every girl in America would want. Who wouldn't be attracted to pink, black and white stripes and polk-a-dots? The dolls even had their own special seat at the table. The food was surprisingly good. My Hero scraped the dessert dish clean!

Following dinner, we went home and crashed. The week added up for us both and we were exhausted. My Hero's promotion to a larger store coupled with long hours for both of us added up. It was lights out by 10:00 PM. LAME-O!

We both popped up out of bed Saturday morning with pep in our step. My Hero was off to the office and I was off to catch up with a college friend. La Prefessora recently received a promotion to a fabulous private school in East Hampton as Chairman of the Modern Language department. How exotic and exiting! We spent a lovely day catching up with one another and sight-seeing. It was so refreshing to have a familiar face in the city and reunite with someone to share meaningful conversations. La Professora is also a fan of Tiffany, so we definitely have this language in common along with a love for fabulous jewelry.
The weekend ended on a rainy rained the entire day! AWESOME! My Hero had the day off so we vegged, watched movies the entire day and ate bad food. Solid Quality Time. I wouldn't trade this weekend for the world.
