Steppin' Out with My Baby...
. . . My baby girl, that is.
We both happened to be off work today & took some time to have a Girls' Day Out. What a good time talking, laughing at the silliest of things & lunching at a little eatery/bookstore owned by a friend from church.
Now, as the day would have it, Shelly (the owner), had JUST left but we still had a yummy, YUMMY lunch. DD#2 had a great salad w/strawberries & nuts in it, tea & a blue-berry muffin;
while I had what HAD to be the BEST quiche I've ever eaten! It had spinach, tomatoes & feta cheese . . . oh . . . my . . . GOODNESS. (Is it wrong to want quiche for a Christmas present?) It was SO good. I also had a splendid Chi Latte & a poppy seed muffin.
With service extraordinaire.
The New Bremen Coffee Co. & Books, Inc. is in the little town where we go to church &, as you probably guessed, is part eatery & part book store ~ the best of 2 of our favorite things.
There's wonderful flavors of coffee to peruse & comfy places to sit & chat as well as tables.
In the children's section, I was delighted to see that they had our favorite Oklahoma ranch wife, The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond's newest book, a children's book about their dog Charlie ~ The Ranch Dog.
This was the 1st I'd seen it in person so I flipped through it & it is as sweet as can be.
I tried to catch DD#2 unaware from time-to-time so as to take a picture of her beautiful face . . . but . . . she was determined to thwart my every sneaky move.
After lunch, we stopped in at the workplace of 1 of our very best friends, & our pastor's wife, Pam. It's always fun to surprise someone & chat for a few minutes; I always enjoy when someone I know pops in at my workplace, so today we got to do it.
It was a sweet afternoon w/1 of my sweet daughters. I love days like this.
