Friday Cristi and I headed over to my Dad's for brunch, which turned out to be lunch. We were in a bit of a hurry and you know how two girls can be in a car for over an hour together, a bit chatty :) This is why I didn't notice the police car pass me until it was too late. 70 in a 55 and a dog on my lap. I thought for sure I was screwed. Did you know that in Oregon driving with a dog in your lap is a $260 fine? I handed over all my papers and said sorry I know I was speeding and put Peetee in Cristi's lap. Imagine my surprise when he came back and let me go with a warning. Thank you officer your kindness is much appreciated and I have learned a lesson.
I wore something bright because we were celebrating.
My Dad got the best news ever, they stuck a camera down inside him and what they thought was a tumor on his pancreas was NOTHING AT ALL! My Dad is doing great right now and I feel such relief for him. We had to have mimosas with lunch:) Cristi had a Reuben.
I had a ham and cheddar with roasted apples and chilies on it. Best sammy ever!
Chris's mom even joined us to celebrate my Dad~ aka the warrior :)
After lunch Cristi said she brought something over because she wanted us to take a picture with it, a Helga inspired shoot:) Can you guess where our inspiration came from?
That's right Cristi had the same copy of Playboy.
Peetee was embarrassed by the amount of fur on these girls.
Ash was totally into all the pussycats:)
Chris and I checked out a new coffee shop called Dapper & Wise. I hope people in the burbs can put down their Starbucks long enough to give this place a try.
My latte was smooth and rich.
Later it was time for some ramen and sushi.
and I had to show off my latest needlepoint score. I really do love her!
I also painted this frame finally.
and after seeing Vix add pom poms to everything I had to add some to this too!
I know this was a long post filled with a bunch of stuff, but come on ya know that is just what we all need to get through a Monday. I watched the Oscars last night and now I must go see 12 Years a Slave and Dallas Buyers Club. Wasn't Lupita a vision is that blue dress?
