Yeah, it's Saturday here....but....it's still Friday....somewhere!!

My good friends~~who keep me company during late night blogging.
Does someone want to tell me how 2 bras (just received from Mom!), though the styles are a bit different (one...just a teensy bit more girly than the other) same brand, same size, one of those is waaay bigger than the other?! grrrrrrrrrrr.
I guess this can only mean one thing.
Something that is going to have to be done sometime during the time spent in the States.
*********************
I want to say a quick "arrigato" to everyone for the encouragement about my new class that started yesterday. On Thursday night, I slept like crap....thinking of all the things that could go wrong...you know how that works! Right?
Everything was ready to go before I went to bed....I just needed to do a couple of things in the morning before I left for my first class...but it was all ready and waiting for me when I ran home before running to the next place. (And yes...I do do a lot of running from here to there to waaay over there!! da doo ron ron!)
The place that I rent is just your basic, everyday classroom. Since the theme of the day was "Patio Time", I wanted to add some things that would help with the atmosphere. I figured even a little bit extra would help.
So....I put some desks together...covered them with a tablecloth...added some flowers and...well...it's not much...but.....I was happy with it!!
Oh yeah...do you see the flamingo lights....over there...waaay over in the corner?? I have a very short strand of them and will buy more this summer because, honestly...I love 'em!!


Heart-shaped cups for spoons and napkins....and yes, my flamingo teacup doubling as a flower vase.
It was Friday, after all!!!

Five ladies joined the day....we talked (topics ranged from kids to husbands to thong underwear to shopping to overseas travel)...laughed...had some good food (cheese and crackers and some pineapple salsa~~oh yeah baby...good stuff~~ on cream cheese)....and drank some homemade fruit tea (with paper umbrellas, thank you, very much!!).
It was a great day!

After worrying so much the night before, they informed me that I really shouldn't do that anymore because it was fun and they will definitely be joining me again.

~~whew~~

This was a good day!!!
But last night....after a class in the morning...the chatting class in the afternoon and then yet another class with my little girly-girl sisters I teach...I could barely drag myself to the grocery store, let alone figure out something creative for dinner. I was exhausted, ya'll!! But after a super-quick pasta dinner (Can I hear an Amen for "super-quick pasta meals"!!), I crashed and burned...on the sofa...it was all over but the cryin'!!
Hence the Friday post on Saturday.



I hope you all have a great weekend...and may something happen to you that makes you feel really good, just by being there!!!

I bet I would love pineapple salsa on cream cheese. Our favorite around here is Chipotle Cranberry sauce over cream cheese served with Wheat Thins. Yum!
