And this title has nothing to do with this post, but I was recently emailing my friend MountainLaurel on Facebook and I sent her a private message with this title. She said I should use it for a blog title and I said I would. And, now, I did! :-)
Anyway, I had a lovely day on Tuesday at the pool - the weather was not too hot. In fact, I kept looking at the sky and thinking we were going to get rain because the sun would duck behind a cloud for a bit, then reappear for a bit. So, it kept it just sunny and hot enough and just comfortable enough to be a wonderful day to enjoy the pool. The kids had a great time.
It looks like we'll stay home today because I've been promising Buddy that I would make Banana Bread, plus I have laundry to catch up on, so Wednesday will be my "day off" this week.
I also don't have to make a lunch for the Evil Twin because he goes to the Chinese place on Wednesdays with his co-workers! Yay! It doesn't really matter - Sissy has been waking up extra early these days. I try to keep her in my bed until at least 8ish (I turn on the cartoons, bring her milk, etc.), but she wants to get up.
I digress....What I really wanted to talk about was my weekend! On Saturday, two of my friends and I went to Flatwoods, WV. Flatwoods has an outlet mall, which includes the Everything Fiesta store.
Many of my long time readers will know I'm a total addict of this dinnerware. It's made right here in WV and comes in a variety of vibrant colors. They introduce new colors and discontinue colors as they go along, so those of us who are fanatics jump on something new right away.
The new Lemongrass color came out and was only available at this shop. My friend B and I are old pros at Fiesta. Our other friend, S, sadly, had no Fiesta. Boy, we indoctrinated her right good!
S is now the proud owner of several place settings - we each bought the 4 piece Lemongrass - and she bought a few more settings. I got some new glasses and the other two gals bought some random pieces.
After shopping around at the outlet, we went to a Mexican restaurant for a late lunch. It was so good!
On our way back into town, we stopped by our local farmer's market, which has a wonderful wine shop. S had never been before, so she was just amazed! It IS a really cool place to enjoy.
It was just a really nice day. The weather was beautiful, the company was excellent. I hadn't had a chance to get out by myself in a very long time, so it was very welcome.
Sometimes, a mom (or anyone for that matter) just needs to get outside their normal routine and have some fun!
I hope we're able to do it again soon and perhaps even rope a few more WV gals into the mix. We are definitely going back in August when Everything Fiesta has a huge tent sale of factory seconds.
But, I hope we get back before then, too. Or perhaps some other outing that involves hunting for FiestaWare.
