Hey, Snowflake. I am going to organize one of the counter tops and the kitchen table. Can I borrow/buy yours? LOL! Hubby will be making lots of spaghetti sauce for us to take down to his sister's next week. Have a great Saturday!

I am going to meet my sister Shannon, and niece Alyssa, in Arcadia, Wisconsin for lunch. That's approximately halfway between Eau Claire & LaCrosse. Only an hour's drive.

Arcadia is known for being the headquarters of Ashley Furniture. I love that place! When we were ready to buy a kitchen table, about 8 years ago in Vegas, we went to the Ashley Furniture Homestore there. We still have it & love it! Our friends were trying to talk us into selling it to them before we moved.

So, does anybody need any new furniture? I think that we'll eat @ Ashley's pub. I didn't even know they had one. But, My sister has a co-worker who says that their restaurant had the best food in town. Kind of funny. This is small town USA, afterall.

Made, are you still good with your recliners?!

Anyways, I hope you all have a fabulous day!!

Hope every one has a happy Saturday. Not sure what we're doing today, I just know it's not work so I'm happy!

Ok, just so you know what my idea of a good movie is.....it goes like this...

Small, casual conversation like "Hi, how are you?" Followed by a kind reply of "I'm fine, but you are a spy, bad guy, terrorist with an evil idea like holding the President hostage....and I'm about to start shooting at you."

This conversation is followed by an hour of shooting, explosions, crashes, and fights. Then there is a 15 minutes conversation where everyone laughs or someone is captured and interrogated, followed by another hour of shooting, explosions, crashes, and fights. It all concludes with a big kiss at the end (or a handshake).

If this is your kind of movie, it is awesome! I really enjoyed it....and so did Wifey. The only difference in my favorite movie and her favorite movie is that is has to have a good looking leading man like me (or Gerard Butler, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Daniel Craig, etc).
