i am so lucky. because i scrapbook, i have made the most wonderful friends a girl could ever have. i have friends here in denver that i get to hang out with on a regular basis. and i have friends all over the world that take a bit more effort, but when i do get to hang with them, it's like we've known each other forever. this past weekend, i flew to boston to see these girls:
we saw boston via this:
highly recommend it.
then we went to anthropology. that is one freaking, no make that, wicked expensive store. once i got past the fact that i wouldn't be purchasing anything of monumental value, i spent the next 30 minutes walking around spouting about all the amazing textures to be found in every nook and cranny. gorgeous.
we ate lunch at a fun cafe. i had crabcakes and forgot to take a picture until now:
then we went home.
saturday we drove to new hampshire. funny concept for me, it takes hours to drive to another state, well not wyoming i guess... and i won't say anything catty about wyoming because there are some very nice things in wyoming, but it's still an hour and a half. utah's at least 6, new mexico is 7, and nebraska, well i've never done that drive, but i'm sure it's at least 5. we went to CKC and met up for dinner with these girls:
so much fun.
i flew home on sunday, sad to say goodbye, happy to see my family though.
one last picture, because i love boston talk:
monday i went to my cardiology appointment. all is well. i am so relieved. my cholesterol is down this year after two years of climbing a little past the level i was comfortable with. i recommend black beans and oatmeal. and lots of salads.
i celebrated 9 years of heart recovery on the 12th of may. i am so blessed to have been given a second chance at life.
monday and wednesday i guest blogged at scrapbook and cards today's blog. here are the two projects i did for the blog:
