Girl Time

This week was my annual trip to Gig Harbor, Washington, where another friend and I visit our friend who used to live in California. We always go in the winter so we can get some cooler weather. 

I worked on some new socks on the plane as I listened to a book, The Girl on a Train. So far I'm enjoying it.
When I unpacked my suitcase I had a sweet treat and a card from Mr. Romance.

We went straight from the airport to Salty's, where I devoured their Seafood Fettuccine dish. It is so good!

Mim bought a beautiful bouquet of tulips to brighten the room.

If you remember the Valentine's Day pillow that I blogged about here; it was gifted to my friend and our hostess for the week. Here she is with her sweet dog, Annie, and the pillow.

We each take turns cooking. This time I made cinnamon rolls for breakfast and chicken noodle soup for dinner.

Monika needed some sutures removed, so I also put on my best Dr. Frankenstein impression and removed her sutures. A terrible photo of both of us, but a funny moment.

I love walking around this development. It is so pretty and everything smells so fresh and clean. The daffodils and crocuses were starting to pop.

We spent most of our days and nights making scrap book pages. I make digital scrapbooks, Monika does paper and I taught Mim how to use the Project Life app. We all kept busy. I made 17 pages but had to switch back to knitting because I forgot to load more photos on my mini drive to scrap. I was able to get the heel completed on the plane trip home. I'll show the scrapbook pages I made on another day.
Our last day in Gig Harbor we went to lunch at Tides, where the food is always good and the beer is always cold. I love hanging out with these friends. We laughed a lot and cried a little, too. After all, that's what friends are for, right?

I am already looking forward to next year!

It looks like a lovely spot, and not that far really from my island.

Looks like you had lots of fun! My daughter lives just north of there. Any other restaurants we should try on my next visit? Are Saltys and Tides in Gig Harbor?

Looks like another fun year with the girls!
