Day O' Fun

This morning I awoke at the crack of dawn to prepare for my Day O' Fun with Katie. Due to a series of unfortunate wardrobe malfunctions, I left the house later than intended. To be specific, I was having some belt issues. In an attempt to expedite my dressing process, I pulled pants out of the drawer that already had a belt attached (looped?) so I wouldn't have to go through ALL THE WORK of putting on a belt. I quickly realized the belt did not match my shirt, so I went in search of another.The first belt I took of my sophisticated coat belt hanger didn't match either, so I pulled off a goes-with-everything brown belt. However. This belt was apparently made for someone half my size and, while it made it around my waist, would not buckle in the front. WHY on earth to I own a belt that is too small? Maybe my waist really is size 52

I'm sure you're glad to know I eventually solved my belt issues and was able to move on with my life.

I arrived at Katie's house where two of my favorite children were waiting for me. 
After visiting with the family and eating a second breakfast, Katie and I went to the mall for her birthday pedicure. I couldn't possibly let her enjoy a pedicure alone so I joined her. I do realize what a selfless friend I am. ;-)
Once our toes looked all cute, we headed over to Forever 21 to try on clothes we will never buy. I believe Katie should buy this dress because a) she looked lovely in it, and b) she now has a boyfriend. Obviously a + b = buy a lovely dress to wear for the boyfriend. (I will discuss her new boyfriend more once I have recovered from the fact that he is 31. 31! Thirty-one!!)
Our Day O' Fun was far from over after Forever 21. Our next stop was....a nursing home! I don't think I'd schedule a nursing home stop into a normal day out with the girls, but apparently the fact that we are responsible grown ups now means that Katie has to show up at work. Watching Katie dance around while singing with the residents once again proved that she is not the wall-flower in our friendship.

Before poetry hour, Katie introduced me to everyone by giving them a rather extensive overview of my life. It went something along the lines of, "This is my very best friend Sarah. We meet when we were two years old and have been best friends ever since! She got married in April- or was in May?- and I was her Maid of Honor. Then she moved way up to the very tippidy top of New York where her husband in stationed at Fort Drum. Her husband is a soldier. Now he's at school so she came back here where her family is and today she's visiting me! We did all kinds of fun things this morning, and now here we are! We had a tea party one time where we all recited a poem we had memorized. We were very proper and everything because it was a tea party! But...then we went sledding because it was the winter so that was the end of that tea party."

I believe the only thing she left out of the introduction was that I was born in May of 1989.

Katie is truly is a wonderful friend to me: she gave me two of my favorite Lindt truffles for the ride home. That's just one of the many reasons I'll keep her around for the next 68 years or so.

Cute dresses! I get so overwhelmed at Forever 21! They have just a store here with jewelry, it's fantastic for a quick inexpensive pick me up!

Looking like you had a super fun day!
