Morning Meanderings… Books and Gatsby!

Good morning!  Happy Sunday!  It is a coffee day for sure!

Last night was the Ramsey County Library Fundraiser for the Library, The Gatsby Party.  Far be it from me to pass up an event where you get to dress up as well as drag along my partner in crime, Amy.

We had such a good time!

First off we stopped at where my son works as it was 5 miles from the party.  We had a drink and an horduerve there.

Then we invaded their bathroom and changed for the party…

We had so much fun.

There will be more pictures coming from the event this week and I will probably post those next Saturday.  Anyway, music, food, photo booth, auction.. fun.  We drove back last night after the event which brought us home right about midnight.  Thankfully today is a nice relaxing day so I can catch upon some things here but for the most part today will be books and movies. 🙂

Speaking of books…

    • We would have if it had not been such a long drive there (2+ hours). I think we both look tired in the restaurant photo. We should have had a pic as we left the restaurant though, we were all dressed up and looked nothing like the two tired ladies from earlier 😀

  1. Love those pictures! It sounds like you had a fun night. After I read your posts I always think, I need to get out and do more things!

    • I try to get out and do stuff because for many many years when the kids were growing up I said “no” a lot. Now… I really want to experience – well, everything 😉

      • This is a great perspective. I’m always saying “no” but when I do make myself go out and actually do something, I usually enjoy it so much!

  2. Woohoo! Looks like you gals had a great time! And I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but you look like sisters! 🙂
