What We Did This Weekend - O! Canada! Edition

My very best blogger friend (BBFFL) Anika was coming down this past weekend with a car full of friends to go to the Ani Difranco concert and I insisted that they spend that Friday evening after the concert with me. They were super kind and even invited me to come along to the concert...but work reared it's ugly head.

They did come to spend the night - lined up like sardines on my living room floor. Their Canadian excitement over the inexpensive wines at the grocery store was infectious.

But inexpensive rarely translates to "good".

This is Anika and her fantastically hysterical boyfriend Jason who kept me laughing with his stories all night. I love a person who can really tell a story. Jason, you can.

And Phil? I'm sure if you have spent any time on Anika's blog you probably have not seen a picture of him and her. They are a rare treat. He made breakfast Saturday morning. And he's super tall. That has nothing to do with breakfast you say?

Ha! He is the only one but me that would notice the griddle is located on top of my cabinets, not inside.

Yay for tall people!

This is Kaila and Jessica doing dishes. Aren't they sweet? Doing dishes!

Here's the group showing their ID's in preparation for the border crossing. Jessie (in the front) has no picture ID and was hassled by the mean lady border guard. I think she is practicing her "I didn't know I had to have ID officer.....really....but see how cute I am" evasive maneuver.

I think it worked because they got home.

Thanks for coming guys!
