Ho-Hum Friday-NOT

Most of our days around here are pretty ho-hum. But the other day I had a hum-dinger kind of day. I got the chance to drive to Little Rock and meet my BFF Cindy for lunch. I got to go all by myself, so the drive there was exactly like I wanted it to be. I listened to any music I wanted to,(I love to scan!) and sang really loud, it was great! I then went to Olive Garden to meet Cindy and had a few minutes to kill so I went in to the neighborring Big Kmart to look for throw pillows for our couch. And did I find a few deals! I found 3 pillows that look really good on my couch($6 a piece), I found a comforter for Anna's bed for her birthday($1.50), a comforter for my bed(which is beautiful, and heavy, and soft!)($6.00), and another comforter just because it was cheap($2.00). Can you believe it? I got 3 pillows and 3 comforters for $29.50 tax and all! I couldn't believe it. I was so excited!!!!
And then I got to spend time with Cindy. We ate and drank-did you know that a coke at Olive Garden costs $2.15? That is more than Anna's comforter!!! I got 5 refills, my moneys worth. We sat there for 2 1/2 hours. It was so much fun, she looked so pretty and she even hugged me when we left, which is a biggy for Cindy! I love you girl!
Then I went to Starbucks and got a coffee, as much as I like to go there, I haven't found one yet where the people are freindly and smiling, and I haven't found a drink that I just can't live without. I think I will just keep stopping at Sonic at happy hour and get a coke, its cheaper, and I know I like it!
I got home to a clean house (the kids and Stephen had also gone out to lunch) and just vegged the rest of the night! It was a great day!

Julie,you make me sound like a germaphobe or something!
I had a blast too, and smiled the whole drive home thinking about all the things we laughed about! And just so you know, the "card" is in our lock box with my marriage license and birth cert. If anything happens to me, tell Joe it's in the BOX.
