fun:part 2

at the end of my two day class with Nina
I waited excitedly for Kim and Julie to arrive
at the studio
as they were coming in to take
Nina's next
two classes
since they're already
great friends with Nina
well you can imagine
all around
in between classes
Kim and Julie
had a two day break
and I was thrilled to keep them entertained in
we started at starbucks
we shopped
antique stores
st. vinnies
a great bead store
we walked and shopped
monroe street
state street
and fell in love with a little shop called
we had dinner and drinks at
jolly bob's
{fabulous pina coladas}
snacked on
cheese & crackers and chips & dip
at my house
lunched on indian dishes at
{yummy bean patties and flat bread}
{me and kim outside my new favorite restaurant}
we laughed until our cheeks hurt

we laughed at Kim
as she was always looking for something

usually her camera
which insisted on living at the bottom
of her bag

{I was laughing so hard here I could hardly keep my camera steady}
we tried on scarves and headbands
wanting to look like
{which is a trick we've decided that we don't think we'll ever be able to pull off}

and by the end of our last day
which was my birthday
we were still
telling stories
knowing that having tired feet
{at least mine were}
was a small price to pay
for having had this
much fun
{thank you kim and julie for getting me out of my shell and making my birthday an extra special one that I'll never forget}
