A Fun Little Birthday Outing!

Today my hunny took me for a fun birthday outing
Nevada City and Grass Valley.

Both are charming places with beautiful scenery, great shops and restaurants.

Here are my pretty Birthday cards I received all week!

We had lunch at this wonderful restaurant called Trolley Junction, its part of this great little mini resort at the Northern Queen Inn in Nevada City.

This is the entrance to the restaurant.

We had our delicious lunch outside on this patio.

Overlooking this .....
Everything was just perfect!!

Afterwards we did a little browsing in historic Nevada City.

Then also in nearby Grass Valley.

This shop I went in is called "Wild Plum".
I could have easily gone "plum wild" in there!
...but alas I had to control myself!!

I was even thinking about y'all while I was browsing around in there!!

I found myself saying things like Oh look at this hun... you know so and so from blogland would just love this!

Do any of you do that too when you go out shopping?!

So you see my friends you are still on my mind even when I'm not online...

I've actually been spending a little less time on the 'puter because I've been feeling more energetic than usual since we've finally gotten some cooler weather.
I'm still trying get some cleaning done and I've also been working on a cute sewing project I'll be showing you soon!

Then I've got another lined up to start on after that!!


Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Well, Happy Birthday wishes to you, Sherri!! It's always nice when our significant others treat us to a fun day of eating and shopping, isn't it? Too funny that you shopped and thought about what bloggy friends would like...
I think the cooler weather brings out a nesting instinct in us. Only thing is, I have waaaay too many projects I need to think about. If I joined up w/that procrastinator's party- I think I would fail miserably. LOL
Enjoy your day today! hugs, Sue

It looks like you had a wonderful day, and no one deserves it more then you Sherri! I laughed when I read how you thought my blog friends would like this, I do the same thing. The Wild Plum looks delicious, and I’m impressed you had such amazing self control; I would have been a buying fool. Have a good Sunday I’m off to clean my basement. We cleaned our carpets yesterday; the fun is never ending around my place this weekend. Oh, yes can’t forget I have a full day tax seminar tomorrow, yikes!
hugs, Cathy

Oh dear friend, I hope your Birthday was special. It looks like it was a wonderful day. Nevada City looks like such a charming place. I loved your 'plum wild' comment. And yes I do think about my blog friends when I'm shopping, like, that looks like something that so and so would love in her home.
I'm sewing too these days, since it's been too cold to be outside. So I'll be thinking of you sewing along too when I'm sitting at my machine.

Happy birthday girl!!! Sounds like you had a fun one. Looks like Nevada City would be a great place to visit. And I laughed when you said you thought about your friends in blogland. That is so true. I do the same thing.

Happy birthday to you. Looks like you had a wonderful day out, beautiful surroundings, and wonderful shopping in a charming town. I always think of friends when I find cute and unusual items, so and so would like this, etc. Sometimes I buy one for them, and one for me. :) Happy sewing to you! :) Tammy
