Mom Vacation - Day 2 & 3

My Mom vacation continues to go well.  Last night we did dinner at PF Changs; better service, however, don't waste your time on the desserts....not worth the calories!!  We got back to the hotel and I read and played on FB while Jenny and her co-workers crammed for the next day of class.  

I woke up this morning with an allergic reaction to something.  My left eye was swollen and blood shot...I was thinking about what a first impression that I was going to make with Kat!!  So after some cold compresses and Benadryl, the eye return to almost normal.  I drove to Kat's house without issue which was a complete surprise to me because I tend to be directionally challenged.  I am definitely time-challenged and showed that side of me right away when I arrived late...I had pre-warned Kat.  At Kat's house I met the infamous, Kat of course, but I also met Katie, Madalyn, and the infamous bad kitties.  We decided to do lunch at Red Robin which I was so excited about...I haven't eaten at a Red Robin since I lived in Washington State.  We get  the commercials in Orlando, but that's just a tease!!!  After lunch we drove around and went to a Barnes and Noble where I got book suggestions and tips from Kat which is so needed because I tend to corner myself into reading slumps.  I have 4 new books to read from authors I have never heard of....the book worm in me is so excited!  We stopped off at the library and then headed to Sonic for happy hour....a new experience for me....4 drinks for $2.80....whatta bargain!!  We headed back to Kat's abode and I got the grand tour.  Kat and I got to chit chat for a bit before I had to venture out into the Atlanta rush hour (which I lucked out on that because I was going into the city where everyone else was heading out).  We did get a picture, but that's on Kat's camera so she'll have to share it.  Her oldest, Katie, was being cute and decided to take pictures from the boobs down....needless to say those won't be posted.  

This was my very first meeting of a blog friend in real-life....I was nervous, but I think it turned out well.  I'm coming back for another Mom vacation in October and I am hoping to meet up with Kat again then.  Special bonus for me, Kat will be in the Orlando area this fall and we may be able to get our girls together...too fun!!

A special thank you to Kat for a great day!!  Hi to Katie and Madalyn!!!

OMG, this is what I get for not staying on top of my blog reading! I can't believe you were only 2 hrs away and I had no idea. Shame on me. ANYWAY, I would love to come crash your bloggy meet-up with Kat when you breeze into Atlanta next time. :-) And that Kat is a wealth of book suggestions! She's not steered me wrong yet.
