full day @ the hop...

Started early this morning by meeting my Active Seniors group at the gym. One of the kids hid (?) the membership cards so I needed to use my Golden Corral Blue Haired Club membership card. I can't stand the picture on that thing.

We met a new friend over the weekend.
Shelley Paulson, owner of Summerset Studio, was in town visiting IHOP and was kind enough to take some shots of our family. Her work is phenomenal - be sure and check the gallery. She is talented enough to make your horse look more expensive and your kids cuter than they really are. This is a gift.

I connected with Shelley a few months ago when I saw she'd linked from her blog to mine. Check it out for some hillarious pictures of a Dog Dock Jumping Championship...which is a contest that looks suspiciously like something I made up. Anyway, after some shots of the kids, Kelsey and I, we sat around the kitchen table and had a great time talking art and life and prayer. Thanks for your time, Shelley!

S.S. Family Truckster Update
Thank you to everyone who suggested the battery was dead. We jump started it, and that worked...at least until we reached the street, where it died again. Jumped again, started again, drove a block, died again. Got it started again and drove like the Duke Boys to Mac's, where it died a third death in the driveway of his shop. He opens at 8 AM and I suspect a call shortly thereafter, as I managed to block his garage door with the corpse.

Schedule Dump

Today is meetingspalooza...Forerunner Publishing, Management Team and an All-Staff, with a meeting with Kelsey and another couple stuck in the middle somewhere. Tonight, though...a big treat. Jason & Lindsey have scored the mother of all coupons to this place at the Plaza (coupons are about the only way we approch this area of town!) Whooohooo!

Dude...we want a review of tonight's meal as only you can write it. The menu looks amazing! I can see how coupons might come in handy as well...yikes!

Randy - it was so much fun to meet you, Kelsey and your fun boys! The photos turned out great - in reviewing them back at home, I laughed a lot and even got a little teary-eyed. I won't make you wait too long to see them!

I cannot wait either, and I just saw them. They are even funnier in pictures!

Dipping chunks of cheesecake into melted darkchoclate with liquer in it is something everyone should do once (a week)

Kelsey said...

Yeah, Sean...you shoulda been here....the waitress suggested a "not-on-the-menu" chocolate concoction that was out of this world! Milk Chocolate with creme de menthe and crushed cookies sprinkled on top. I finally gave up dipping the cheesecakes in and dove in with the spoon! It was a GREAT way to start this 40 day fast! Wahoo!
