Good Company = Good Times

Hello blogosphere! So continued from yesterday's blog post, I got Page from the airport, ate lunch, and went to Meg's apartment to wait for Meg to come home. Page and I had a lot to catch up on, so we chatted...for 5+ hours (!). Meg got home and went for a quick run (chatting continued while Meg was out) and we went to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner. Today, after breakfast, the three of us went to A.C.Moore aka my favorite place in the world, but this one wasn't the one that I normally go to so it was like a new adventure. They had a huge section of clearance rubber stamps, yay! Page was very nice and treated Meg and I to dinner last night and some craft goodies. :)

After lunch this afternoon, we went to the National Mall and took pictures for Meg's cousin's Flat Stanley Project. Flat Stanley "R" with the Washington Monument (see left picture), Flat Stanley "R" with the White House, etc. The weather was especially nice today which was a big bonus. Funny story: while near the Washington Monument, I saw a gentleman taking pictures of a Flat Stanley character, and I asked him if he was doing a similar project for someone. Yep, he was. The Flat Stanley he was holding had been to Europe and Montreal and eventually would make his way to Brazil after his stop in DC (!).
Tonight, Meg had a dinner event to go to so Page came home with me and my mom had prepared dumplings for her. You must understand that Mom making dumplings is a special occasion. You must be really important for her to go to the trouble of prepping the meat and veggies and assembling 100+ dumplings. And yep, Page is that special. We scarfed down the dumplings and made another batch of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies for Meg's 3rd or 4th, maybe 5th? birthday celebration on Saturday after the marathon.

It's been a busy bee day, but very fun with these two gals. It's been about 1.5 years since we've hung out as a trio, but it's as if time didn't really pass and we can pick everything back up like *snap* that. This old MasterCard commercial describes our dynamic, except we're girls. It's funny because one of the kids has a red backpack, and when we all first became friends in undergrad, Page had a red backpack.
