More This and That of What's Up

I thought I would bore you with some stuff that has been going on lately.. lol
Okay not really boring, rather fun for me, but probably TMI as my Hubby would say.
Bryan & Kristy

Hubby & I had a fabulous time with our friends Bryan & Kristy at the Broad Ripple Art Fair Premiere. The Artist were fabulous and so gracious too. Fun to chat with them and learn about the Art.
Hubby & I

We drank some wine, ate great food catered from MAB, and walked the grounds enjoying the exhibits.
One of my favorite appitizer was this wonderful "Mashtini".  I tried to get a shot without actually letting anyone know I was taking the shot. Sorry it's a crappy shot!

You take a scoop of mashed potatoes, into a stemless martini glass, add any of the marvelous toppings of bacon, butter, sour cream, chives, gravy, etc... Absolutely FABULOUS!







We also enjoyed walking down the gardens and "playing at the Twisted House".
Hubby & I
Isn't this cool?

Later back to Bryan's for a little wine and chill.


We got a "new" used car.
It is basically Annie's car as she "traded" her little truck with her Dad & she will share this G6 with him when he has business trips.  This will allow her to built credit, we will keep the little Z71 Pick Up (that is an great little truck), and Hubby will still have a comfy set of wheels when he goes out of town (Annie will get the truck during Business trips) Crazy? Yeah, we do that sometimes!
Janis & Shari
This Pretty Little Blondie is a favorite cousin.  I was Blessed with her company last weekend as she came to visit from Quitman Texas to watch her Nephew (my Cousin Rob's son) graduate from High School.  What a joyous occasion seeing Walter graduate!
Shyanne & Walter
Me, Mom Walter & Shari
Later I had my Mom stay the night with Shari & I and we enjoyed watching Dancing with The Stars on DVR.

We bought this Grill for the weekend also, but it came in a box... where it sat till today (one week later). I am proud that I helped Hubby put together!
Thinking about Grilling tonight...

Also "let" Hubby get his Father's Day gift early.

He is very excited.  I may even give it a whirl....maybe.

And finally, I will leave you with this.
Annie took me to a charming little new Cupcake Cafe called "Parma Sweets", yesterday.
I actually DROOLED.  We got a "heathly"Gulten Free" Chocolate for Hubby (inside the box)


While we went for the good stuff...
Smore's & Pineapple Upside Down
Annie chose the rich Smore's and I chose the Sweet Pineapple Upside Down Cupcake.  Along with an excellent cup of Java...
Yeah, I drooled!

I enjoyed seeing all that you've been up to - you're such a sweetie. Glad you're having great times with friends and family. :)

Summer has really set in, hasn't it, even if the calendar still says "spring". Hot and humid. We've been enjoying it as well though.

Hope you have a great remainder of the week.
Love and blessings,
Linda
