a little bing of organization!!!

Dearest Friends,

Allow me to begin by saying that I had the most fabulous time visiting my cousin, Sarah in the town where she attends her medical rotations.

After our Wegman's visit, Sarah and I decided to listen to music and dance around her apartment for awhile while she (I was already in the only outfit I brought) got ready to go out for dinner.  We ended up going to this authentic Italian restaurant that made their own homemade everything including the pasta!!! It was delicious.  

On our way home, we had to drive through areas of town that were not very nice looking.  One of Sarah's medical peers says "and this would be the interesting part of town," as though part of a tour all of our heads turn to look outside the windows of Sarah's minivan to marvel at the dilapidated buildings around us.  Not five seconds after this revelation I hear the door locks click down, and we all burst into laughter.  This was one of the funniest parts of the night, for me.   

Needless to say, we did not have ice cream for dinner like I had recommended! lol

One of the things Sarah and I always do when we are together is run errands.  I got a dry-erase calendar to hang in my kitchen and I bought dry-erase markers to compliment this purchase!!! I was so excited to change colors and decorate my new board.  My old calendar I made on snapfish in December, and needed to go.  I needed a fresh calendar to compliment my new outlook on myself and on my life.  This was the perfect solution!!

One of my favorite things about this visit was watching Family Guy Star Wars--because Star Wars is my absolute FAVORITE movie EVER!!! And chatting it up with all the med students and residents.  

This weekend, I learned that I am a huge nerd, and I love that about myself.

Love Always,

Hi Amanda! Hi Sarah!
Wow... You had quite a visit!
So glad you two girls are close!

I can just picture some of the things you did this weekend!
hear the laughter!
Your great-grandmother used to make fresh homemade pasta...
I'm sure Uncle Al has told Sarah, Anna and Joseph about it! It was not to be missed...
No one missed THAT supper!
Well... talk to you soon honey...
We had a great day today.
Church, a few errands of our own...
then shish kabobs and rice. Alex V. came over too. We missed you...
God bless you, Amanda! Glad you had a safe trip there and back ♥ Mom
