Well, the last few days my friend Susan was visiting me from Ohio. It was great to see her and hang out. I wish we had a little more to offer as far as things to do in Idaho...the whole time she was here, I kept thinking of all the really great things I could have shown her in Seattle...the harbor tour, the aquarium, a Mariners game, Pike Place Market, Mt Rainier, Ocean Shores, the casinos, the Underground Tour, etc....
She arrived on Thursday and we went out to lunch at the Ram. Then we hung out on my deck for a few hours and chatted until Nick got home. That night we had dinner at Joe's Crab Shack. After dinner we headed over to Kyme's house to get the run down on Scentsy - we're both pretty excited to get it going (more on that below)!
Friday we had lunch at Rembrandt's and then a pedicure at Two Rivers Salon & Spa, followed by shopping at the mall - a true girls day. We met Nick for dinner at Famous Daves. After that, we got all girlied up and went dancing. We headed over to Hannah's but that was LAME, so we ditched that and went to Cowgirls in Kuna where we danced (and drank) the night away.
Saturday we both woke up with lovely headaches. For some unknown reason we thought it would be a great idea to drive up to Bogus Basin. Yeah...twisty, windy roads on a hangover? NOT SMART. We did get some nice pictures. Ha ha. Saturday evening we headed up to Crouch for the Starlight Mountain Theatre. I don't know what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn't plastic lawn chairs. :-) The play was okay, we saw Let's Murder Marsha. They apparently only had 2 weeks to rehearse and I have to say that it showed. I might go back, but I won't "upgrade" to the "expensive" seats and I hope to see something that they've prepared a little better for.
Sunday was a total day of driving. We headed down to Shoshone Falls - that is so amazing. I'd never been before and well worth the drive. On the way back, we stopped off at Hagerman to view some "fossils." I use that term LOOSELY. We saw a sign that showed where fossils were found...so we went off on an adventure to get up close to a windmill - Susan had never seen them before and was quite taken with them. haha. Another side trip on the way back was in Bruneau to see the sand dunes. THAT was cool. Nick & Susan climbed to the top of one, but I wussed out.
Monday we went to the zoo. Again, I use that term loosly. It's a nice zoo, but very, very small. after the zoo, we kind of played it loose - just hanging out at home, playing games, grilling out and watching movies. It was nice to just relax.
On Tuesday Susan left, so we spent most of Tuesday getting her ready to go. I had such a great time! I wish she didn't live in Ohio. That's too far away. Oh, and for those of you that weren't sure, Ohio is NOT in Pennsylvania, like the Taco Bell girl thought.
Anyway - I'm starting up my Scentsy business soon! I'm going to host an open house the weekend of the 20th. I'm considering hosting it both the 20th and 21st, for a few hours each day. Once I have firm times and dates, I'll post again. I hope you guys can all stop by at some point and I'll be having a fun little incentive if you book a party. :-)
Well, I hope this blog update finds you all fit & happy. I can't believe it's already September! I'm starting to decorate my house for fall - is it too soon?
Oh, ps, check back in a day or two. I'm going to update my blog w/ pics, but I can't while I'm at work. :-)
