We've had a bit of an unusual schedule the past few days and I've not been online much.
Mike was out of town on Tuesday and he called me about 4:30 to ask if Griffin and I wanted to come have dinner with him and spend the night. It would take us two and and a half hours to get there, and I thought of every excuse in the world not to go. But in the end ... we did ... and I'm glad we did!
After a little more than 2.5 hours in the car and 138 miles, we arrived in Danville. We went to dinner at this really wonderful Mexican restaurant and got back to the hotel and had some fun family time together. It was great being together on a "mini" vacation.
While we were at dinner I received a cell phone call from my friend Carol's husband (Allen). He asked me what I was doing on Wednesday. I told him what Griffin and I were up to and asked him what I could do. I was worried because it was unusual to get a phone call from him. I thought they might need help in some way.
He asked me if I wanted to bring Griffin by after Sam got out of school and he would watch the boys so Carol and I could go to lunch together. This was a surprise he had planned for her. Oh my goodness ... what an amazingly thoughtful husband!
Of course my answer was YES!! So, Wednesday we left Danville in time for us to meet up at their house around lunch time.
We had a really nice lunch at TGI~Fridays and then we went to this store called Ollie's Wholesale. It was so, so cool! For those who live in Winter Haven, the store is very much like The Goodie Barn. Does anyone remember that store? Actually the store is more The Goodie Barn meets Big Lots.
I really enjoyed spending time with Carol ... and while we love our boys to pieces, it was nice to have some girl time together.
