|Cupcakes for Sarah's bridal shower at Catherine's lovely home...|
After making sure the cupcake set-up was ready to go, I bid them all a happy shower, got in my Jeep and headed east to Greenwich, New York, where I picked up a lay-away purchase at "Just Because," one of my favorite little boutiques. They carry Vera Bradley products, Woolrich and Tribal lines of clothing, among others, and very pretty jewelry. For my birthday in March, I'd put a larger Vera Bradley tote on lay-away, (just the right size for my own gear and any "Grandma" items I might need to take along) and for whatever reason just never got back there to pick it up. Today was the day (so happy belated birthday to me!). In addition to clothing, the store carries a good variety of things, including baby gift items, kitchen linens, handbags, and nice little gifts-for-self (!) as well as greeting cards. They offer free -- and very pretty -- gift wrapping. It's just a fun place to visit every now and then. Usually, I head in that direction with a sister or a friend, but today I was on my own, so after shopping I went in to the little cafe next store (it has a new name - I'll check and let you know) where I ordered a chicken salad sandwich to go. I am a HUGE chicken salad fan, and I like theirs because it has Craisins, green grapes, and is lightly seasoned. They don't use much mayonnaise (also a plus) and I ordered it on their own home-baked wheat bread. Simple. I hadn't taken time to eat all day, and was hungry but didn't want to go the drive-thru route. This was so much nicer, and I was surprised to find a serving of Lay's classic potato chips in the bag with my sandwich, which are just about the lightest, crispest, best potato chips, in my not-so-humble opinion! The sandwich was so pretty that I took a picture of it!

Now I'm trying to decide what to do with the rest of my precious Saturday. Katie, Bill, and the boys are at a birthday party. Russ isn't here this weekend. Oden, the big black lab is hanging out in my apartment while his family is away, and it's quiet as can be. I could actually do nothing for a little while, but I'm not sure I know how!!!
I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
