Have you read that book? I didn’t read it, but I watched the movie long ago. I sort of don’t remember it well, maybe I should look it up this summer.
One of my best and long time girlfriends Rachel came to visit for the weekend – yes, even in this 110+ degree heat, which means, she really, really loves me.
We went bargain basement shopping at Last Chance, because anyone who thinks they are too good for LC, is way too good for me – who doesn’t love a bargain or the fun? We watched movies, and ate at the best Phoenix restaurants, these Cokes arrived and I was like hey, look at that – eating at Postino with my hubby, my soulmate, and my friend, Rachel. What a fun Coke-incidence !
We also watched Ant Man in 3D, Mr. Wonderful’s movie of choice. I love Paul Rudd, he’s such a cute actor and I think of him from Clueless.
Oh, and Rachel completed the Western States run, yep, 100 miles. She’s amazing. Next, she’s going to run 175 miles over three days – she does get to rest in a hotel between. She’s going to live to be 100.
We went to church and the guest pastor was from Sacramento. After the service I went up to him and his wife to say hello, and found out that the pastor and I actually went to the same high school (not at the same time) and that the small start up church is held in our old high school – Granite Bay High!
Then, I asked what they were doing for dinner and asked them to join us.
Have you ever done that? It’s the best, inviting strangers to become friends and have a great conversation over a good meal – Zinc Bistro to be exact. I was craving some French cuisine. A seemingly quiet dinner can turn into one of the most refreshing, encouraging and fun meals – sharing stories, I left thinking, I should invite people to dinner more often!
There was more shopping, I am going to make pillows like this once I can find the right couch for my office. I looked at world maps…
Then, Rachel and I also decided to book a trip internationally.
