Sister's Weekend...

What a great weekend!!!
By 9:00 Friday morning, the girls were here & we were loaded up & headed out for our sisters weekend!

We decided to take the "scenic" route & stop in at a little shop in Bowling Green...Didi's & Gigi's Purse Strings n'Things....if you remember, I hosted a purse party some weeks back & this is their actual store! Cute lil' place...so glad we took the time to go by!


Then off to St.Louis! We went to the St.Louis Art Museum first....check in at the hotel wasn't until 3:00 so we had all kinds of time. I wish I had more time to visit museums & libraries.







We finally got to the hotel, Crowne Plaza, around 4, got checked in & walked around to see where things were at.....then decided to have an early dinner. The bartender recommended a few places & we decided on the little Italian restraunt that was just across the highway. Oh my gosh ... the food...the service...the atmosphere...All good! They've been there for 35 years! It reminded us of a cross between Lula's & The Pear Tree restraunts here at home!







Back to the hotel, we decided to brave getting into our swimsuits & going down to the hot tub! Well, Susan decided to go to the gym....oh did that hot tub feel great! I REALLY need to get mine fixed!

Saturday, up early & checked out by 9:00 or so & a quick breakfast at the IHOP next door then off to The Mills shopping mall! Seems we all pretty much forgot about the cameras once it was time to shop! LOL.....What a nice mall! Large & indoors! There's a nice scrapbooking store there... Archivers & you can check them out online at www.archiversonline.com . There were a couple of purse stores there too but not as cute at Didi's & Gigi's! We stopped at a couple other malls.....one to check out a Home Goods store then to the "outlet" mall in Warrenton.

Once back home, I did what was absolutely necessary & curled up in my chair the rest of the time! I was BEAT!!! I did finish a little cross stitch I'd started last week PLUS started another one! I'll show those another day! Now, I must get off this maching & start my day! Play & lazy time is over...it's cloudy & rainy here today & I have errands to run!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Have a GREAT day!!
