The drive was easy, I've done it a million times before. I did stop off in Rocheport, MO to pick up a couple of bottles of wine for Holly and Chris (isn't that what you do when you go to someone's house?). Rocheport actually has kind of weird sentimentality for me. After my parents divorced and we went to spend weekends at my dad's house, they always met in Rocheport. Apparently, it was the middlemost point between their houses. It is a little rinky-dink town, but this winery has just grown so much so I always like to support their business.

Holly warned us about Olive Betty waking up bright and early and she was not kidding. I was on the floor on the air mattress and it was too irresistible for her. She kept jumping on it and patting my head to get me to wake up. Fortunately, she's too cute to be mad at.

Sunday, we were all sad to leave and no one was looking forward to the drive. We had a good breakfast at Country Kitchen with a not so good waitress and then it was hugs and goodbyes.

I decided that I was going to stop off in Columbia at Iron Tiger Tattoo because I was tired of putting it off and I wanted to get it done. Morgan drew up the words and got to work and did a fantastic job. It hurt like a mofo, especially right under my ankle, but it was so worth it and I absolutely love it!

Such a fun weekend and I am again amazed that I have been able to make such good friends through blogging. Now, if we only lived closer!
