Girl's Day Out

Friday, June 24, 2011

Yesterday, Mom surprised Courtney and me in a big way!  She gave us the ENTIRE day out!  In fact, she told us that she absolutely wouldn't have us home before 5:00.  Mom graciously said that we had been working hard and she wanted to reward us......I personally think that she was the one who needed a whole day out - she needs a break and one of these days we will FORCE her to take one. :-) 

So, Courtney drove us (yes, it's so nice to have an older sister with a license!!) to our favorite Chinese buffet, about 45 minutes away.  Yes, a long drive....but we're used to it.  Plus, we spent the whole time talking anyway, so the time flew by.

I am, and always have been, a huge fan of Chinese.  I don't care what people say about fried cat and cockroaches running around in the back.....Chinese food is great.  (We've happened to actually see a cockroach at this particular resteraunt before and still love it.)  Ignorance is bliss in this case - I really don't want to know what's in my food or how it was prepared; I just want to focus on the fact that it tastes good and was cheap.  Yes.  I've been to China anyway, I've seen the live chickens running down back alleys!!  That's how much I love Chinese food.  In spite of its' reputation, I still love it.

 MMM.  Love love love this stuff!

 Courtney really went after their sweet and sour soup.  Hey we've BOTH been to China (she's been twice) so we're hooked.

The sad part about this blog post is that even though I had every intention of taking pictures along the way of what we did, I totally forgot to actually do that!  Horrible of me, yes!  So all I have to show is the evidence that we went out for Chinese, and I bought these shoes for $1.00 at a thrift store.  I was very happy about that purchase!

We intended to go by the pool for a few hours.....and even though we brought our swimming suits and admission was a wonderous $2 per person - we forgot to bring towels.  Quite a disapointment, especially after we had just purchased Junior Mints, Chocolate Whoppers, and Lemonade for our after-swimming snack.  BUT we still had a good time and I munched on my treat in the quiet library.  (Wow, that sounds pretty bad; did we really buy all that junk food?  Thankfully I have a high metabolism at this point.)

We had a wonderful time out together - thank you so much Mom!  It was such a fun time.  One of these days, YOU are going to find yourself with an entire free day to do with as you please.  :-)
