Let's Get Acquainted

Last weekend was one of a social nature. I had a chance to greet a few new faces, get reacquainted with some familiar faces and indulge in an entire day of mother/daughter festivities.

Friday evening kicked off my weekend o' fun with a visit to Bri's new "den of mid-century modern chic". At which we sipped her freshly made gazpacho and imbibed more than a few bottles of wine before entertaining dessert, more inebriant and two new faces. New to me anyway.


We veteran winos always double-fist our booze with water...

A few hours into our evening Bri and I were joined by two creative chickadees from the blogosphere...Lisa and Wendy! We had a wonderful time getting acquainted while chowing down on Bri's faboo polenta cake.



Oh, and there was sangria involved too (which attests to the strange camera angle of the pic above). Hey, it was a long night! A good night, but a long one nonetheless.

Saturday the party continued. Only this time the hubby accompanied me as we traveled eastward for a birthday celebration (with margaritas) at Uccellina's abode. Basically I spent the entire evening talking to Miss Kendra about subjects as varied as bribing your tatoo artist with cookies for a better rate to the temperament of felines to debating the wisdom of eating Thai food in the Valley after 10:00 pm. Definitely love to make much merriment with my SNB girls!

Anyhow, rounding out the weekend I spent Mother's Day Sunday hanging out with Little LadyLinoleum. Sorry no wine or margaritas were involved. However, we did get a little stitchy.



Yep, I busted out ye old machine and the two of us explored the path to garment creation from pattern piece liberation to finished baby-doll top for her.


Little Linoleum claimed this fabric the minute she spotted it on this here bloggy. The kid's got a thang fer skulls.

Not a bad way to spend a couple of days eh?
