Surprise!

Well, I forgot to stick the memory card reader in my purse this morning, so I do have a glaring lack of pictures today, so instead, you get a wordy recap of the weekend.

The mystery destination was Florida. I flew down on Friday after an hour delay and de-icing a plane twice and my mom picked me up at the airport. I hung out all day with her at the paper and we had lunch and watched the big bad storms start moving in from the northwest. We left in time to grab some Steak 'n Shake for dinner and then came home for the surprise.

You see, this week is my grandma's 80th birthday. She actually turns 80 on Thursday, but they were having a big party at my dad's church on Sunday, so my parents flew me in as a surprise. I walked in to find Grandma on the computer and mom introduced me as their present to her. She cried and cried and cried. I'm just glad I didn't give her a heart attack or something!

Saturday I met up with Courtney and her husband and two kids. I gave her a multi-colored baby kimono which I don't have pictures of (yeah, insert stupidity here) and gave her son the Nautie Nautilus I had made a while back. He was having entirely too much fun with the knitted squid too. After they left, Mom and I went shopping and came home empty-handed aside from some coffee for the morning (SB, I brought you Barnie's coffee that is unflavored!).

Sunday was the party and it was pretty fun. There was lots of food, cake, and people there to celebrate her birthday. I think she had a good time, but she was exhausted by the end of the day. So, Mom and I took her home and then we went out for some sale shopping at Sears. For me, two skirts and a shirt later, and for Mom, two shirts and a pair of pants later, we returned home and crashed for the rest of the evening.

Yesterday, I took my grandma and dad out to lunch before I had to fly out. I flew back home last night and realized Florida is much warmer than Kentucky this time of year (insert DUH here). I did get some knitting in too. I almost finished a plain sock out of the OnLine yarn I got for Christmas. There will be pictures tomorrow.

Anyways, that's about it. Time to get back to work. Blah.

Knit on...
