Saturday Fun

Having sisters is always fun because you always have someone to call.  Someone to shop with.  Someone to laugh with.  Someone to shop with.  Did I say that already?

I called my sister, Suzanne, last night and asked her if she wanted to go with me to take Mom shopping and out to lunch today.  She needed to go to town anyway, so she was game.

I called Mom and signed her up.

So, this morning we shopped a little and went to lunch at El Chico.  I had only been there once before, because I'm pretty loyal to my normal Mexican restaurant... but I had the Fajita Quesadilla and it was good.

Last night, while Dave and I were on our "hot date", Kale's girlfriend, Kayla, sent me an MMS of the cutest purse she'd found for me at TJ Maxx (of course).  They were kind enough to make the purchase for me, so I have a purse-in-waiting at Fayetteville!  Now, I believe that gives me another reason to go visit them sometime soon.

On another (TV) note, Betsy mentioned a TV show called "Rock the Reception" and I watched it last night and got a good laugh.  One couple's story was especially moving; Michael, a three tour Iraq war veteran, and Trycia, who is battling breast cancer.  With all the sadness of her diagnosis, the couple wanted to do something uplifting.  They did a fun dance to MC Hammer's, "U Can't Touch This".  They were a cute couple and their dance was really good.

Have a blessed Sunday!!

So nice to have lunch with your sister and mom! Love your new need a trip to Fayetteville to pick it up or make Kale come home!!

I watched Rock the Reception on youtube one time when the whole wedding party danced to "Thriller". It was so funny!

I really don't like the fact I have a purse in my apartment. I'm afraid that some people will think I'm a fairy. Kayla says I'm out of my mind.

Kale, send it home with Kayla!! (although it could get lost in her purse inventory)

I know exactly what you mean. I am so thankful for my first sisters! I always have so much fun with them. I love that picture of you, you sis and your mom. That IS a cute purse (and Kale's comment cracked me up)! I want to watch that show. I can't ever find out when it is on.

Betsy said...

El Chico??? I used to go there all the time when I was in Waco at Baylor! Sounds like a fun day!

I'm glad you liked Rock the Reception! I still need to watch it myself!

And I keep forgetting to mention that I'm so glad you are liking The Glass Castle! I thought you would! :)

Hi! I just found your blog from Leigh Ann's blog and how cute is that? You are so fortunate to have sisters! I always wanted some for myself! :) I will have to check back in!

You are so lucky to be able to have lunch with your sister. My sis lives 4 hours away, however, mom lives here and we are able to have lunch and do some major shopping together! Your mom looks GREAT! WOW! How I do admire your parents!

Love the purse! Your son just cracks me up. I bet he is a blast to be around.
