So yesterday - most of it, and today I spent with my neighbor, M. The one with the cute dog. She's so much fun, I had no idea. She's the type you can just HANG with. Well any way she's been out of a job for awhile - her company merged with Capitol One and got rid of her department. They gave her a nice severance package and Cobra for six months so she's sitting pretty to find another job, but in the meantime she's home. And has been for the last two weeks. Yesterday the boys walked her dog and I threw myself together after being in pj's til 1pm to go over and say hi. I was relieved she was still in her pj's (vaccuming her house, but nonetheless!). We'd both been thinking the same thing that last day, wondering who was going to break the ice since we're both home all day now. The conversation moved from over the verandah wall, to the verandah, to the couch, and the boys watching cartoons on her TV. I invited her to a movie I was going to with another friend that night and one thing led to another and I was in her closet. Gasp! The clothes. The shoes. The purses. The jewelry! Needless to say, with her not being able to fit in her tiny clothes and me, well, being able to recite my entire wardrobe I was sitting pretty in her clothing last night. Too much fun. We ended up downloading Dancing with the Stars on the computer and M, her sister who came down from College Station for the evening, A (the other friend), and I hit the movies. Dinner theatre, actually. Potato skins, beer, and calzones. Yum. We crashed back at her house for Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, more beer, Hennessey and Cognac, Bluebell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream, Hohos, caramel filled Hershey's Kisses, a friend of her sister's over to visit, yet another movie, this time Elizabethtown and 2am in the morning.
Her sister had to take off early this morning so M and I went to check out a development around the corner called Jefferson Center. It looks like a mini Santana Row (links later!) but turned out to be an apartment complex with a Seattle's Best Coffee, a Subway, and a pizza place. We had lunch and headed downtown to find the Urban Outfitters and walk the strip.
Her boyfriend met up with us at 5pm to watch Curious George with the kids and I where J proceeded to eat almost the entire large bucket of popcorn and S's face lit up in smiles. We braved the cold home and are now tucking in for a long night. And B is off tomorrow!! Yay!
