What is it about Friday that makes me want to run away to some great shopping adventure, have lunch with friends and not a care in the world. I have had a few of those times.... like in Seattle, shopping in the city center and riding the monorail, or pikes place market, and lunch at "that great Mexican place"... why can't I ever remember the name of it. Or, in New York in central park with my little Mason totally oblivious of the cop car, helicopter, foot chasing bandits that came charging. New York was always adventurous. I loved the Friday's in the fall particularly in New Jersey. I would just get in my car and drive to unknown places and shop. In Chandler we lived close to a lot of shopping that was a stroller walk with my 2 little kiddlets and a trip to AJ's for a fancy treat. I remember plenty of times that come Friday I would ride across town to visit Jake for lunch with the kids and go to the golf course restaurant with all the other "lunch-break" workers. Something about Friday just makes you happy. It's a long weekend... and trust me, I've had a long week! I am happy it's Friday. And then I realize that I am in outer Mongolia.... (aka Tremonton) where there is really nothing of interest to do or see and a husband who is back to the chopping block on the old budget routine... and so I guess... me and the old diet coke buddy will just sit and look at other peoples blogs and excititng lives and reminisce.


  1. I'm with ya! I wish my budget had some mobility for a Friday lunch and shopping trip, too. I guess I'm close enough to things to "window shop."

  2. Go raiders! i miss you! it shure would be fun if we all lived close enough for a friday lunch buddy group! love ya!

  3. So, I'm looking for something to do too. I love your blog and the fact I'm slowly figuring it out. I loved your pictures of jam. I like to have a blog but what's the use without a digital camera?

  4. I feel your pain, Jen. I started a "spending fast" this week. Given the price of gas and everything else there doesn't seem to be a lot of mobility in my life right now. Wish we could get together sometime. XOXO.

  5. Las Margaritas, Fen....and my birthday is the 25th of April... wink always ask that too ;)

    Love ya, we should have a Friday blogstalking session :) that is fun...and inexpensive...

  6. Jenny,

    I would love a friday lunch date with a diet coke, some great shopping, and some great laughs. And just as a reminder.... I am the one stuck in outer mongolia.... :) Your baby looks so big. Someday our little boys will meet. Carter will be three months next week. I can't stand it. Love ya!
