Yesterday was a great day. It started off with lunch with my Dad. After that I took a little drive East towards the mountains so I could meet up with Kayce to finally give her the scrapbook I made for her, Oh, I don't know, like five months ago. I have seen Kayce at least two(or three?) times since I made it, and forgot to give it to her every. single. time. Airhead!

So when I found out she was gonna be in town, I made sure that I was able to at least drop it off for her. Her weekend was jam packed with activities(including a wedding), so I knew she wasn't going to have time for blogger socializing.

That's when I hatched a plan to meet her wherever she was planning to be and swinging by to drop it off to her.

So I drove about 50 minutes from my Dad's house to Kayce's best friend Sarah's to meet up with her. Sarah lives in a pretty little town right at the base of the San Bernadino mountains. Being there made me realize how long it has been since we went to the mountains. A trip is definitely in order. Soon.

Sarah was nice enough let me hang at her house for a bit and chat with Kayce and her husband Mike(who is so nice!). I also had the pleasure of meeting Sarah's three children, who were adorable.

We chatted for a little over an hour and then I hit the road again, as Joe was about to wake up(he worked on Friday night) and he needed dinner.

Today has been a lazy day. I am still in my p.j.'s(it's 2:20 p.m.). I am supposed to be working on a scrapbook I am making for a friend's upcoming wedding but instead I am blogging and catching up on shows on the DVR. Must find motivation.

A couple of funny things that happened during my visit with Kayce yesterday:

We had been texting each other all morning, letting the other know where we were and what time I would get there, etc. About 15 minutes before I arrived at Sarah's house Kayce had texetd me and said they would be home in about 15 minutes. When I pulled up in front of the house there didn't appear to be anyone home. I texted Kayce to let her know I was there and sat in my car for a few minutes when my cell phone rang. It was Kayce, asking me where I was. I told her I was sitting in front of the house. She said "Well I am standing out front and I don't see you!" I had typed the wrong address into my navigation system and was sitting in front of the neighbor's house three doors down. Duh! She walked down to the end of the driveway and waved me down to the right house. So typical of me!

The other funny thing is that when I walked into the house Kayce introduced me to Sarah's husband(whose name escapes me, because Hello, airhead!).

So anyway, she introduces us and then she asks me how long it took me to get there.

I replied "Oh, it only took me about 50 minutes. There was no traffic and I was driving quite fast!" ( I don't know what prompted me to say that).

Kayce laughs and says "Oh, (insert Sarah's husband's name here) is a CHP officer!"

"Ummmmm.....Well I suppose I shouldn't be telling you how fast I drove then, huh?"

We all got a good laugh out of it. Sometimes I don't know what comes over me that I say the things that I do. Seriously.

That's great that you were able to see Kayce. I need to meet her one of these times.

Watch your speed out there, Lead Foot!

A mountain vacation does sound like a good idea... you may be onto something there...
