They were both born on November 4, you see. Do you know what a birthday means among friends... let alone two birthdays?
A reason to celebrate, of course, and celebrate we did!
Under the inspiration of Kim, we piled in the car and headed west. We met up with Katie in McPherson (McFearson in my spelling book), Kansas, at The Cook's Nook.
But that was only the beginning. We wandered down the main drag, moseying in and out of shops until we found this little treasure...
"What? Me? Why, yes, I would love to be interviewed for your story! It was 29 years ago this week that I was born. This day with my girlfriends? It's spectacular! No I would not say there is a food theme. No, definitely not! Well, yes, we met in a kitchen store... yes, we are in a cake store and... well, um, yes, we are planning on having lunch... "
Toting our bags of pancake mix, muffin mix and syrup "for our children", we slogged on to lunch at a greek cafe... hummunahummuna...hummus, anyone? We gabbed and gabbed until the the cafe workers turned off the lights and padlocked the door...ha ha ha, so it seemed, but it turned out the workers needed to set up for a wedding reception while wondering if we would ever leave!!!
We continued on our quest to investigate any shop with an interesting name, sign or window display.
We ended the brisk, breezy afternoon with a warm cup at the local coffee house.
