Oh yeah, we've still got it!


Last night I had the opportunity to go out to dinner with the talented Jen Manuell from Fish Eye Rugs blog.  She's in town for a few days teaching at Deanne's studio.  We have followed each other's blogs for years, I've taken a class from her before and we have stayed in touch.  (Another friendship spawned from blogland) 

We had a blast catching up.  We dined on an amazing seafood pasta (and a few drinks).


And the conversation never stopped and spread across everything from blogging, hooking, fashion to eventually zombies.  Yes, it made sense at the time.  Guess you had to be there!  Lol   At one point we were even demonstrating rug finishing techniques using strips of paper napkins around our iPhones. 

You know you are enjoying yourself when you guess it's probably about 8:45pm, but the clock says 10:20pm!   

At one point Deanne and her husband popped in.  A bit after they left a round of drinks arrived at our table.  We told the waitress it was a mistake, we didn't order them.  She says, no mistake - someone sent them to you.  WELL, didn't we feel special!  Imagine, 2 gals, well beyond their 20's getting drinks sent over.  As we were laughing about how "we were all that and a bag of chips" suddenly I said "oh, I bet Deanne ordered them for us before she left".  We laughed and decided that was more plausible than our original idea.  

This morning I stopped into the studio to check out the class.  (Invited by Jen to stop in - I'm not a class crasher).  I went to thank Deanne for the drinks.  She said "it wasn't me, but now I'm sorry I hadn't thought of it".  Really, it wasn't you??  Nope she says.  So I immediately started to smile and headed back to the workshop to tell Jen that we WERE still HOT after all!   

Oh yeah, we've still got it!   LOL

  2. Such fun - the dinner, the company, the "sent over" drinks. I know Jenn was looking forward to catching up. I am experiencing a bit of the "green monster" here, I fear. Thanks for your note to me today. I know that I will be back to the hook soon - once all these baby gifts and get well sweaters are off my plate.

    hugs

  4. No wonder your rugs sells so well. You are keeping company with some VIPs.
    I'm glad that you had a great dinner with Jen and Deanne and some admirers bought you some drinks. You still got it.
    Hugs,
