We had a terrific time with some great friends this weekend. Wonderful food, wonderful company. On Saturday the guys hung out with the kids while the women drove into the city. We visited The Yarn Co. -- nice stuff, but very disappointing in terms of size and overall selection. We did have an excellent lunch at Rosa Mexicano...sooooo yummy. I was impressed with the guacamole-made-tableside (though I don't eat the stuff), I had a delicious tortialla soup and chicken enchiladas...and mooched a bit of pomegranate margarita.
That evening the guys went out to play pool (They came back early as the pool place was "too dirty" -- oh, how we laughed at them. Shamed, they retired to the deck to drink scotch and smoke cigars.) and we sat around and knit. L tortured us, er, I mean taught us how to knit socks. Why I am knitting something on needles the size of toothpicks that I could go to Target and buy for $3 is beyond me. But I'm doing it.
Friend 1 and her husband took Friend 2 to the airport for her flight since they were heading that way to go home anyway, and Host Friend and I went shopping. We had planned on heading home around 4pm, but our gracious hosts invited us to stay for dinner, so we happily accepted. :)
