Happy Ending Sundae

Gorgeous weather. Perfect for a playdate and lunch with my friend Kara and her daughter Olivia. She and Keegan got along well but I am starting to suspect he prefers older women. Afterwards we headed down to MA to use my cousin's discount at P*er 1 on some new throw pillows and a few Christmas items. Then we scored big time at Tr*der Joe's next door. It was Jeff's first time there and I think he might be starting to understand it's charm. When we got home my neighbors were unloading all kinds of goodies froom a borrowed SUV. They had hit up the new Ik*a before it's grand opening to the public. They keep getting closer. First CT now MA.
Tomorrow we drop off Keegan at Tom's on the way out of town. I am taking Jeff away for his birthday. It is a surprise that I have been planning for months. Not going to spoil, it so you'll have to wait until Tues. for the details. It's a romantic getaway so no blogging.
