Weekend in the Mountains

Last weekend we headed up to Boone for a relaxing weekend get-away. On the way up, Desdemona was able to legitimately use her fog lights!

Saturday was spent poking around on King Street. The Mast General Store was having a sale, and I got some Teva shoes. After a stop at the Bead [...]

Milltown (The French beers) & Pauper Players

Friday night we met up with our friend, E, and hit Milltown for a pre-show dinner (or is that supper???).  This was the perfect opportunity for me to finish “The French” beers.  I’ve talked before about the Milltown beer book, and how I am working my way through the countries, starting with Germany.  Now I [...]

Along the [...]

Girl’s Night Out

Everyone was decked out in festive clothing (mostly red and black) and we were all ready for an evening filled with holiday music. At precisely 7:30 the curtain came up and [...]

Everyone Loves A Parade…Except Cali

We had the holiday parade today and Cali and Cassey were in attendance.  Cassey made friends with my co-workers children, and seemed protective of them when the cub-scout bear from the parade came over and gave one of them a hug.  That bear is just lucky it moved on.  Cassey got a Cheesie Bites treat [...]
