My buddies....

I've spent quality time with my new best friends this week. The Puffs tissues with Vicks are amazing...almost as good as comfort food.

This week has been an interesting one. Our daughter's car was repaired on Monday after her little fiasco last Sunday. Turns out her fuel pump had died and a mere $750 later she was back on the road.

On Thursday, the boss took her up to Providence, RI to look at Johnson and Wales. She had already been accepted there, been given some scholarship money and had never seen the campus. On Thursday they arrived in Providence, walked around the campus, saw a little of the city and she fell in love with the place. Friday morning they had an official tour of the campus, met with financial aid and admissions and she committed to attending there. I'm so excited for her, she'll be studying food and beverage services and restaurant management and the best part is that I'll get to visit her often...I love Rhode Island!

Yesterday was great fun...our church youth group had a "Super Bowling" event in the afternoon and I was in charge of snacks. The kids had a great time bowling and ate lots of chocolate and peanut butter chip cookies and Chex mix. They were fun to watch. Last night we headed to a friend's house to watch the Super Bowl. Good food, good friends, cold beer and a good game...what more could you want?

If you get to Providence, please let me know. Perhaps we can meet somewhere for coffee. I am on the Cape and only about 90 miles from Providence. For a bit longer anyway.

Hope you feel better soon. I know how miserable that is. I was sick from early Dec till almost the end of Jan....nasty bugs out there!

Ooh . . . you have a future restauranteur in the family. Cool. J&W is a great school.

I hope your feeling better this weekend. Winter colds are yucky!

Ugh, hope you are feeling better. I had a cold that lingered and lingered, went away and then came back.

Love the colors on the rail fence.

How funny, I posted a picture of Vicks tissues on my blog, too! You're right, they're genius!
