Yes, yes...I have so much to tell you about our trip to Pittsburgh. I want to share so many pictures with you and let you know how wonderful our blog friend Meg truly, truly is. Uh huh...I want to, and I will...but first those suitcases had to be unpacked. The 14,987 loads of laundry needed to be washed, dried, folded and put away. The house needed a little fluff here and there, the refrigerator and pantry needed to be re-stocked and the dog and cats needed to be reassured that we would NOT be going away THIS weekend! (They were considering a violent coup if they saw the suitcases again)
Yes, all of that needed doin' so what to do, what to do....aha! Go out with the girls! Mom, Grace, my beautiful sis in law Lisa and I went out for a lovely evening. A great dinner at a new restaurant and then over to Wright State University's Nutter Center for a special, one-of-a-kind ice show/concert.
Grammy winning saxophonist Kenny G was the musical entertainment at this spectacular event.
