The Long Weekend

I had an exceptionally long, wonderful weekend. My weekend started at 11am on Wednesday and concluded Monday at midnight....it was splendid. My first surprise was having coffee with a good friend...who (for her unfortunate luck) was recently removed from the UK because of a few visa problems. She is accompanying her husband, who is currently a student there. Hopefully everything goes through, and she will be reunited with him shortly, but until then, she is stuck having boring American coffee dates with yours truly. Since I had last seen her, she had taken up crocheting (much more successfully than I had during my last attempt) and this weekend, she gave me these WONDERFUL leg warmers which she handmade.

I am incredibly impressed, and will be wearing them every day until I start to sweat in them from the summer's heat

She now even has an etsy store which I will highly suggest to all of you to check out! 

Saturday my sister and I enjoyed massages. It was heavenly. It was a belated Christmas gift to my sister, which was technically a gift to me as well.

Sunday was homework and reading a novel day (I have a little kid obsession with the Artemis Fowl series, and had not realized a new book had come out about a year ago) ...and work on redesigning my blog day. What do you think of the new header?

 I'm still teaching myself photoshop....slowly...but I'm getting the hang of a few things!

And finally Monday was pick out new prescription glasses day (I'm looking forward to getting these in a week or two....be looking out for photos!) And finally have coffee with my good friend again, suffering through life back in America. We visited Jones Bros Cupcakes- a large Omaha coffee/cupcake/lunch place, great for a multi-hour coffee date!
