Girl's Day Out

Every year just before Memorial Day weekend, Donna and I get together for a mani-pedi and lunch. It's one of my favorite days of the year. Today was the day!

Donna got a really cool blue on her nails, I went for a sheer pink. Though I went more daring on my toes...

It's Shrek's signature color from the new Shrektacular line by OPI. I love it!

We visited Urban Pl8 for lunch, we dined on the covered patio because the weather couldn't have been nicer. I adore this place, fresh, local and organic food beautifully prepared. I had Lily's Nut Burger the last time and loved it so much I had to have it again.

I will probably have it again next time, too. It's just that good. The salad had a very light but tangy vinaigrette along with cranberries and sunflower seeds. The burger is so flavorful and perfectly cooked, I really want the recipe.

The owner came to the table for a chat and said she really wanted to open a place that would offer a great alternative to fast food. The freshest, healthiest ingredients prepared in such a delicious way that you wouldn't miss the drive-thru. I say she has beyond succeeded. Wendy who?

Then it was on to Cami Cakes for a treat to take home. Aren't they gorgeous?

I chose Strawberries and Cream, Lemon Drop, Classic Cami Chocolate on Chocolate and Classic Cami Vanilla and Chocolate. Rob and I will have fun sampling these this weekend.

Before I headed home, I had a little playtime with Donna's new baby, Zoe. She would not stop licking my knees!

Isn't she pretty? She sweet, too. Almost makes me want a dog. Almost.

I'm taking Rob to the farm for the first time tomorrow to pick up our milk and eggs and to get the final photo of Sonja before we pick her up sans head, feet and feathers on Saturday. Watch this space for all the details on the farm dinner.

Have a wonderful weekend, get out there, play in the dirt and enjoy the sunshine!
