Some Friday Thoughts


I'm pleasantly surprised to find that Frank's House of Prime Rib is actually a nice place to dine.  Instead of the vinyl checkered tablecloths that I have pictured in my mind for the past year and a half, they actually have nice white linens at each table and serve upscale Italian food with fancy deserts.  How very odd it is that this fine dining establishment is hooked onto a filthy gas station.   
Speaking of odd, I've never understood how this Disney Monorail and dragon found its way to the parking lot of a local consignment shop in the small town of Tyrone, GA.  But who really cares when you can find gems like a brand name beige wool sweater for $1 at the Red Door Consignment shop on their Friday dollar day?
But no matter what piece of clothing I find at a consignment shop, it will never look as cool as anything this chick could pull off.  And I think it would be really really cool to be friends with her.   Shes down to earth and an all around good person (from what I read, anyways)....  and I wonder if we were friends if she would me borrow her sense of fashion.  Count me in the 2.5 billion viewers that will be watching on April 29...I'm a little (or a lot) awe struck.
On the other hand, I wouldn't have anywhere to wear those kind of clothes when I spend the majority of my time entertaining a toddler.  I wonder what the appropriate age is for a kid to have a sandbox.  I love the idea of this DIY sandbox, but the kids in the picture are way older than my kid, but I think she'll still like it... or will she just eat it?  Either way, it'd be fun to have Brant build this and then paint it fun colors.


....And I wonder if there is any ice cream left in the freezer?

I can tell you how the monorail got there. There was a gentleman who lived in Tyrone who collected odd pieces of memorabilia. Reid and I had our reception at the barn on his property. The monorail was there at the time. Inside the barn he kept more off these types of items - old fashioned trolley cars and such. My guess would be he had to sell off some of his collection.

she will eat some but have a fabulous time doing so! I'm so excited for her. That's an awesome idea. What a fun life and home she has.

I know very little about William & Catherine but now you've gotten me intrigued!
