Laura and Mike's Excellent Weekend Adventure

Aren't I a lucky gal? Mike and I are going to St. Louis for the weekend!!! We leave tomorrow morning. Mike made reservations at a very cool looking hotel. The Chesire Lodge which is right in the heart of Forest Park. We can walk to the zoo and the art museum. The reason we are going is because two of our favorite bands are playing in St. Louis this weekend! On Friday night we will go see The Blasters. On Saturday we will see The Polyphonic Spree. Raise your hands if you have heard of these bands! If you have not, please try to check them out as they are both totally top notch!!! We will be lunching at Fitz's Root Beer factory one day. Yum! Also...........guess what???? I will be squeezing in a trip to my dream store, Red Lead!!!!!!!! I guess that is when Mike will be waiting in the car with the air conditioning on and reading a book. I am looking forward to hanging out with my sweetheart this weekend. I have been running all over creation with my gal pals and have neglected my guy. So, I will see you back in this space on Monday night!

Hi Laura - I've been so out of touch due to all this Summer travelling - sorry! Now I see you are off for a romantic weekend in St. Louis - hope it's fabulous and that you don't leave Mike roasting in the car too long while you shop!! Sorry - don't know those bands but take your word they are good and know you will enjoy.

Beautiful things to look at on your blog - I'm enjoying all that creativity. Come visit me soon.
Stay cool - Mary.
