It's been quite a long while since any of us here in Sloanville have been on a fabulous trip. Luckily, we have great friends who are well-traveled and have awesome taste in souvenirs.
Check out what we have raked in this summer... starting with this mug from Wall Drug.

In case you can't tell, it says "WHERE THE HECK IS WALL DRUG." Cool, huh?!!

And then we received this piece of cherry pie and bag of coffee from Twede's, made infamous by one of our favorite television shows of all time, "Twin Peaks."

If you are observant, you may have noticed that the cherry pie is missing from the photograph... well, it got consumed in a moment of excitement and enthusiasm before I realized that it should have been memorialized ... and yes, it was an amazing piece of cherry pie. We now understand Agent Cooper's praise of the pie. Note: Can't endorse the coffee, however, only because I can't bring myself to open the bag... it will live next to the unopened box of Hello Kitty Fortune Cookies which we have had for about 7 years, thanks to another friend with fabulous taste!

Lots of Knitting on the Needles

I am knitting like a Mad Lady these days. Actually, I am knitting like a mad, angry, "can't get to my knitting", frustrated lady these days. Hoping this will change. I have tons of things on the needles ranging from a darling baby bunting to a bear backpack for humans to more wonderful designs for Blythe.
The portrait of me and HimsMostPretty was drawn by Olivia a few years ago when she was 8 or 9. We both look about the same, though I am heavier and Tank has more gray hairs in hims furs. Okay, I have more gray hairs, too.

It's a Win Win Win at the Royals

Today we hung out at the Royals game and it was a lovely day...

Best Thing About the Day: Getting to hang out with my old friend, her friend (a new friend for me), and my husband.... a win, win, win situation.

Second Best Thing About the Day: We got the awesome ice cream filled Kansas City Royals batter's helmut that fits Bonnie B.C. pretty well.

Third Best Thing About the Day: The Royals actually won! It was a win, win, win kinda day!!!

Bonus Point: Got some knitting done, too.
