We went home and my in-laws said they'd come by sometime. After a bunch of miscommunications and weeding of the lawn, we were picked up and taken to Wendy's and Dairy Queen. Some days fancy or gourmet just isn't in the cards. Like I told my husband, "Sometimes the company you eat with is more important than what you eat."
Hubby bought me Ratio by Michael Ruhlman and made me two CDs. I thought Sammy gave me the gift of silence while blow drying my hair but that didn't last. :)
