Retro Sketches #79 and lunch with family and friends....

One more day to fun to have a 3 day weekend. Yesterday I met my mom for lunch at the Cheesecake Factory and tried their grilled cheese, it was ok but it is a good thing it is not on their menu. Somehow they missed the concept of "grilled".  I was just nice to hang out with my mom even if they messed up on their "grilled cheese".

My mom....she will turn 80 next Saturday!

Today Ashleigh and I headed out to meet up with some sweet friends we have not seen in months, we would get to laughing so hard, I would have bet money that Fuddruckers was getting ready to kick us out! We could have sat there all day and chatted and laughed! 

Darlene, Sarah, Ashleigh and Arlene
