Ladies Day Out

I love friends with similar interests! K planned a Mom & Daughter day for us. On the agenda, theatre production of The Sound of Music. I’ve never seen the movie but I always think of Ricola when I hear the title. Count Momma & I in! There was a photo opt spot in the lobby, so the family in front of us offered to swap cameraman duties with us. The lady taking the picture was having trouble. She kept saying, “This box thing is popping up?!” So as I walk over to help, she moves my assisted touch dot and got the camera working!

Sadly K’s momma couldn’t make it with the weather, so Spawn invited a stand in who fit in perfectly!

Before the show started, I shared a Tweet – I’m trying to keep up with technology or as the kids call it, social media. At intermission, I got this from the lead actor!

Mr. Ben Davis, an Indianapolis raised artist! Love seeing these guys come back and entertain in the city that molded them. First, Josh Kaufman. Now Ben. I might look into shows a different way now. Support local! Great show!

I Pick Italian

It was my month to pick for GDC. I figured I’d double dip and choose a locally owned eatery where a friend worked. Except, he was on vacation in Mexico. Where’s my server!?

Regardless, what was once a RSVP of 4 turned into 8 overnight. Welcome to The Italian House on Park.

I treated the girls to an app of Fried Ravioloi, it was hit! All of our food was served hot and delicious. 5 out of 5 stars. I highly recommend this place if you live near Westfield. It wasn’t even a far drive for me.

17 for 2017

While staring at the Florida ocean, K and I decide we wanted to stay put for NYE, so I’ll host a party! Hosting is the easy part. The theme is where the creativity gets challenging. Good thing my brain was clear and in popped an idea. The invitation…

I’m all about the tiny hats this year!

As the RSVPs came in, the main question was, “Are people really dressing up?” Hell ya we are! When else do I get to wear my high school letter jacket and Polo knit? CS was all about the tight rolling.

After great food and merriment, we rang in the new year with our amazing friends!

Even Sam was a trooper!

We closed our night by writing our 2017 wishes on a lantern. I just love the sentiments these lanterns bring out.

My 2017 New Year started with a perfect message from my girl Kate.

I couldn’t agree more. And I was ready for my breakfast of champions with my Kate¬†flute!

After an easy kitchen clean up, I was ready to tackle a new puzzle. I asked CS to pick one for me. I was handed 2 puzzles in 1 box. What?! This was going to require major precision. Color coding was a must! An ocean scene vs. a seashell scene.

Boom! A little over 2 hours and it was complete. Great way to start a new year full of joy and gratitude. I hope you do too!
