Girls' Week-end

The men in this home went away all week-end long to recharge their testosterone by doing things like ice fishing, playing ice hockey, telling ghost stories, and other Cub Scout stuff.

My daughter and I gratefully stayed home.  But what to do to make our week-end special?  How could we celebrate us?

1.  A quick stop at the library to get the last book in the Clique series.  My girl later won my heart by telling me that the girls in the series made a lot of bad decisions.

2.  A stop to buy a cherry pie.  Yes, one for each of us.  Yes, they were both gone by Sunday.

3.  Dinner at Olive Garden and entertainment by a flirty waiter who was undertipped by me.

4. Attendance at the Detroit Kennel Club dog show where we met a couple of thousand perfectly behaved dogs and I fell in love with a Bernese Mountain dog. 

I didn't get to bring him home, but my daughter did win a gift card by throwing some bean bags through some targets.

5.  A little shopping.

6.  Dinner at Max and Erma's.  While eating, my daughter thought she saw our long-lost precious friend.  She wasn't sure, however, so she surreptitiously took this picture which we then studied throughout our dinner.  Finally, we decided it was indeed our long-lost precious friend and we had a lovely reunion.

7.  Breakfast at Biggby coffee AND Big Apple Bagels. 

8.  An inability for mother or daughter to button their pants on Monday morning.

It was perfect!

I love mother/daughter weekends! Haven´t had one in ages.

I don't have a daughter to read with, eat with, shop with, drink coffee with, take spy photos with, go to dog shows with, and under tip with. But if I did, I suspect I would want one just like yours. I envy you.

That sounds like such a great weekend! I think taking the spy picture, discussing it and then talking to your old friend is hysterical!!!

Sounds like a wonderful weekend of mother/daughter bonding. Actually, I don't care for pie, but the Bernese Mountain dog is gorgeous....I've never heard of that breed before. Your daughter is lovely, too!

Louise said...

Sounds like you guys had a good testosterone-free weelend together. I can't wait for my daughter to be old enough for this kind of thing (god-willing).

I'm happy for you both; that you would love each other's company. What a treasure, huh?

Sandra said...

A great bonding story! I really enjoy your blog. I'm glad I found you.
