Catherine Ellis and I had a girls weekend - an impromptu one, but a great one! David has gone to New Orleans for Mardi Gras the past couple of years and he went again this year. My mom was going to join us to help out (it's been a rough week for the Cains, CE has been sick again, out of school, I've had events, etc.) and bless her heart - she got sick Friday afternoon just as she was leaving school with the stomach virus (the same thing we had earlier this week!). So needless to say, Meme did not join us - the Cains would be just fine if the stomach virus never visited us again. This is the third round this fall/winter.
So, we switched gears and had a good ole' girls weekend! First on the agenda was "chips mama" - Catherine Ellis loves cheese dip and chips at Mexican restaurants and we typically go on Thursday nights a couple of times a month. Well we missed this past Thursday because I worked late and she was just having a fit (literally) to 'eat chips Mama'. So off we went to El Caz - a great Mexican joint behind our neighborhood. She was elated and it hit the spot:
Next we hung out and just did normal daily kinds of things - this is what we're up to most weekend mornings in our house:
Then Aunt CoCo came to visit - Catherine Ellis was OVERJOYED to see her - it's been a while! So we ventured out in the pouring rain to lunch at one of our favorite local places and did a bit of window shopping ... thank you for coming to visit Aunt CoCo - I sure do love you!
My sweet, precious baby girl! Mama sure has treasured her time with you this weekend! Here's to many, many more girls weekends with the joy of my life!
