Girl's Weekend

I had the best weekend.  The.  Best.  Weekend.  It was pure fun from beginning to end.

I flew up Friday morning and Lisa picked me up at the airport.  We picked up lunch and headed to her new house.  It is sooooo pretty.  I can't wait to spend Thanksgiving there in a  couple of weeks.  Lisa had a hair appointment so I went to the kid's school to pick up Grace.  Lisa lives in kind of a small town and I can't tell you how many people said "Hi Lisa" to me while I stood in front of the school waiting for Grace. It's so weird to me.  I know we look alike but sometimes I forget we are twins.  I haven't been confused with her since I was a kid.  (Although I learned at a young age to answer to either Lisa or Michelle.  To this day if someone calls out "Lisa" I will turn my head).

After bringing the kids home from school Lisa and I were on our way to dinner with Kayce, Stacey, and M3.  Everything about that night was perfect.  Delicious food, good conversation, great friends.  We sat there for hours talking.  I thought they were going to kick us out.  :)  I just have so much fun when I am with these girls.  And special thanks to Kayce for making the trip over the mountain in the dark.  You rock Kayce!


After dinner Stacey followed us back to Lisa's house to start our weekend adventure.  We were up bright and early and on our way to Sacramento for the Scrapbook Expo.

First stop:  Starbuck's.  The nice man taking the picture was supposed to get the Starbuck's sign that was directly above us but he didn't so you'll just have to imagine it there.

Here's one I got off the internet in case you aren't good at imagining things.

We drove right by the Capitol on our way to the convention center.  
We stopped  to see if Arnold was moving his stuff out but he wasn't.  At least not while we were there.

Stacey and I with the necklaces we made.  I'm not showing them too closely because these are the Christmas presents I am making this year.
I won this!  I'm pretty lucky that way

Yeah, you knew I was going in here.

Sour candy!

My stash.  What was I thinking?? I only just ate all of the Halloween candy!
If we are what we eat, then I'm easy, fast and cheap.  Haha
We should have asked him a question.  But we didn't.

Stacey made me get on this buffalo.  No really.  I said I was content to just pose next to it and she said "NO.  Get ON it."  So I did.  I'm pretty sure people walking by thought we were crazy.
Old Town Sacramento
I bought this outfit to wear for Joe on Christmas Eve.  Shhhhhh..........don't tell him.  It's a surprise.
It is also a surprise for my sister and family, as that's where we will be spending Christmas eve.
I didn't buy this hat.  I kind of wish I had.  But not to wear with the outfit I bought because that would be over the top.
Signs of Fall
Headed back to Lisa's house.  Sadness.
I had the best time.  What a perfect weekend.  Thank you Lisa for flying me up. Thank you Kayce and M3 for coming out with us. Thank you Stacey for doing the driving into Sacramento.

I am still basking in the fun we had.  It was a really great weekend.

Looks like a lot of fun, so glad you had a good time!

M3 said...

So awesome to see you!!! Even though we almost got kicked out of the restaurant for being at our table for so long, I still feel like we didn't get enough time to talk. I guess that's the sign of a good friend, there's never enough time when you're with them.

(By the way, I was scrolling down through your pictures and thought the caption for the drinks one was "Daytime view from our room." Hee!!!)
