In my second tornado chasing weekend in a row, The Queen of Howktown pops in on old friends from Chi-town and left with few more friends and a different impression of Iowa. Mostly, don't go there unless my profession is officially changed to tornado chaser.

Update to come, so stay tuned!

Conference of Awesome Wrap Up

The Weekend of Awesome is in full force and it is only lunch time, yet I still have not acquired pants. Considering Southdale was next to where we had lunch, we decided to quick run in, get me some pants and go on with our day.

Macy's was the first store we saw, and we noticed they were having a big sale, so we buzzed in for a quick look... Let's just say the look was not quick and it wasn't until we visited 5 other departments that we made it to the pants.  We tried everything from undergarments, swimsuits, shoes, and trenchcoats on before we even looked at them, in fact.

I had been looking for a new rain jacket, preferably blue, for a while now, and was excited to see the one that I had tentatively picked out on line on clearance at the store. BAZING!

By the time we got the pants, it was practically a grab and go situation. I ended up with some indigo blue Ralph Lauren jeans... which in normal circumstances I would have rolled my eyes at, but my sisters were helping my find things and the sales lady just LOVED "LARRRENNN" and forced her to bring them to me. The didn't look too bad... and they were $19... so BAZING! Pants. It's about dang time, too!

Finally! On to bigger and better things like DINNER!

We each had a different ginger ale or lemonade! Tasty!

The next day, Sara led us in water aerobics at the pool, then we relaxed:

We eventually had to leave, but not before stopping at Sara's on our way out of town for a last minute lay about in the grass enjoying iced tea:

(You may notice that enjoying various types of beverages is integral to my relaxation. Tea, gingerale, lemonade, water, martinis, coffee... it's all good)

All in all I came away with some very important information from this Conference:

My sisters are AWESOME:
