With Friends


I spent Saturday with my friends Nina and Heather. I hadn't seen them in awhile and it was so much fun spending the day with both of them. I worked with the two of them on my last major project. Both Nina and Heather are partners in a local consulting firm, specializing in business process modeling.

It's so much fun spending time with them because it is always a unique and fun experience coupled with lots of laughter...and...lots of great food.

We met up at Heather's house and from there scooted over with our bikes to St. George's where we set out to bike to Chesapeake City. We ate lunch at Bayard House in Chesapeake City and enjoyed the view.


At one point during lunch, I was venting about my frustrations with trying to find a pair of jeans that fit. I went shopping for a bit on Thursday but couldn't find anything that fit both my waiste AND my legs. Being athletic, I tend to have big legs, but now that I've put on a little more weight (and I carry a bulk of it below the waist in my legs), I really have a rough time finding jeans.

Anyway, Heather suggested I shop at a store in town, because "they tend to carry clothes built to fit the strong and stable German woman" (Quote by Heather, who, by the way, is of Germanic decent).

Okay, so I'm not German...

Her remark to that...."Well, try it there anyway. Maybe your legs have migrated to Germany".

To which we all had a good laugh.

After lunch, we hopped back on our bikes and headed back towards St. George's.






At Heather's house, besides teasing her husband (who is too cool to remove his sunglasses inside), we sewed.

I started the purse below, but didn't finish it until really late on Satursday night.


I might have to make another one of these!

So my legs come from the German side! LOL I'm half and half/German and Belgian! Although I think Belgian's tend to be strong and stable too!! HA!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
